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

Another city... Another open top bus tour! A great way to see the all the main sites to get an overview before we explored. After our bus tours, our next stop is usually one of the walking tours and this was a good one. We walked around all the main central area, seeing various political buildings and museums and the main shopping and business streets. We got to hear lots about the history of Chile, ...
... in Santiago 6 hours after schedule, meaning that the metro was closed, complaining became a lot easier.
So we jumped in a taxi driven by one of those reassuring drivers who has no idea where he is going. After watching the meter go up and up, we jumped back out and walked the rest of the way. Eventually finding what looked like the right house except for the gates were locked, there was no bell and a concerned Scottish man outside who ...
