Plaza Italia Santiago Reviews
Cheap, helpful staff, excellent location! Nov 11, 2007
I stayed in Hostal Río Amazonas Plaza Italia in 2007, and it was just an excellent experience!
Their staff was friendly and very helpful. They were all experts on the touristic information, including attractions, transport, food and other useful hints.
The rooms were really clean and comfortable with good beds and clean private bathrooms.
The hostal is located next to the Argentine Embassy, in a castle-like building, at right the corner between Mackena Ave. and the "Alameda".
It is in a short walking distance from the main restaurants and pubs district, which called the Barrio Bellavista.
On the opposite side of Bellavista, there is the Cerro San Cristóbal, also on of the most visited touristic sights in Santiago. Don't forget to have a 'mote con huesillos' when you are on the top of Cerro San Cristóbal!
Hostal Río Amazonas has another hostal located on the Barrio Brasil, farther from downtown Santiago, at Rosas 2234. I stayed at this other hostal too, and it is equally recommendable, in spite of its distance.
