A central location but the lobby, bar and restaurant area do not really match the style of the rooms. The bar is chic and well designed with cool tables and a stone & hide decor. The rooms are fairly basic and the bathrooms jaded. The sushi was very good but the sharing platter was rather poor. Breakfast was cleared away with extreme promptness even though we were still eating.
Fine for one night but rather cold.

Our flight was standard, and we arrived to Punta Arenas at mid-day. Our first task was to buy a bus ticket for the next day to Ushuaia, the southern-most town on the South American continent. Because we were on foot and didn't have a calendar in front of us, we ended up taking about two hours to actually book the bus. We went to the office of one bus company where the girl at the desk was in full Sunday laze mode and not happy to see ...
