TravelPod Member ReviewsEspana Hotel Santiago
Was a bit apprehensive reading some negative reviews. But turned out to be better than expected. Had a nice room. Nice shower. Cable tv. Wi-fi. But the breakfast area was a bit messy. U must be early to grab the better stuffs. The public toilet is also not well-maintained. But overall had a good stay there

There's a giant Virgin Mary statue at the top from where the Pope said mass in 1984, in case you're interested. Bellavista by day is a very different ...
Mum and dad left at 1.30am Tuesday morning to catch their flight, we all got up again to wave then of before heading back to bed for a few hours. My bus was at 8.20 so we got up early for breakfast and for sad goodbyes. It was hard to pick up rucksack again and head off by myself but knowing that i was seeing off on the route home was exciting. When I got to santiago I left my rucksack and set off to see the bits ...
Up at 01:30. Not a good time. I managed to get a seat at the back and tried to snooze a bit, though Peter's bright iPad didn't help. As we arrived at Punta Arenas airport dawn was breaking. The plane was packed with tourists returning from the Antarctic. I particularly liked the three brothers wearing llama and penguin cardigans. A Christmas present I wondered? I sat behind a man who looked as though he hadn't visited a barber's in over a year. I managed to get a window seat once again ...
