Hi guys,

Any suggestions for the best area to stay in Santiago. We only have a few day stopover there and love to be in the middle of "action" but I also appreciate a good night sleep ;)
I have read that Bellavista is a great suburb, but is it going to be super busy and noisy at night (goosh I sound like a granny;) We are couple in our thirties and if you have any hotel/ hostel/ B&B suggestions I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks, H

Santiago sucks the bag. I lived there for a year and hated it.


Stay at the Hotel Londres. a decent price range, a quiet hostelly hotel with great service right in the downtown core. The street outside is cobblestoned and has a couple of places that stay open late for a drink so you are steps from your door and still have a night out. The core is really close. And I consider the neigbourhood safe. The good thing about targetting there, too. Is that if you don't like it, or it's full, there are about a half a dozen other comparatively cheap locations nearby.

Located on Calle Londres...Cross street I think is Calle Paris.

Good Luck out there. Write back and tell me what you liked about Santiago.....Because maybe I missed that.
