Hodelpa Gran Almirante Hotel & Casino Santiago Reviews

Good, served its purpose for what I wanted Jun 29, 2012
Due to some travel logistics, I had to spend a night in Santiago before my flight home on Monday (it's a LONG story). Anyways, after being dropped at the bus depot, I pretty much picked the first hotel I saw, and because it looked decent/good, I went in.

Upon check-in, I got complimentary champagne, and a room quickly; it was expensive for myself only ($230.00 USD for one night) but I just wanted a room, and to relax after a long travel day. You get free casino cash, and a voucher for a free drink, along with free Wifi everywhere in the hotel.

The room was warm when I got in, but for a smoking room it didn't smell too much like smoke (surprisingly; I'm a non-smoker, and it's all they had). Bed was comfortable, and room was nothing special; kind of what expected of a traditional hotel room. Mini-bar was well stocked (I didn't take anything from it) and bathroom was decent.

I used the pool, which was great, and watched other guests at the bar on the pool deck drink and play pool. There was also a hot tub on the roof (which I didn't use-seriously, it was 100 out-who uses a hot tub?!). At night I wandered around the hotel, and spent time in the hotel bar, and the bartenders/staff were very helpful, and friendly, especially since another guest was bothering me all night (they helped me get 'rid' of him).

Wifi was free, and worked throughout the hotel; I was able to check up on email, and what I missed online at night using my Ipod touch, and download books to my e-reader.

If you need a room for a night, and don't mind cost, or aren't looking for bells and whistles, then this will suffice. If you want more than one night, and something more, pick elsewhere.
