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.

Interestingly, it was the Chilean Navy in Punta Arenas who provided the steam ship, Yelcho, which ultimately rescued Shackleton's men from the island.
One of the most interesting sights within the town, and around the corner from ...
... pathway. We soon found the cheeky penguins hiding in their burrows providing us with much amusement as they went about their busyness!! These penguins live for 25 years with just one mate, but life has never been easy for the just hatched Magellanic penguins; the climate change is making it worse as the chicks are already vulnerable to predation and starvation. Foxes, seagulls, whales and sealions are amongst these. Now intense storms and warmer temperatures ...
... houses but in the city centre there were some fine late Victorian and Italianate buildings. Graffiti was everywhere - as were the dogs. By the Magellan statue there were several youngsters hanging around. It must feel strange growing up in one of the most remotest cities in the world. The Isla Rey Jorge was an old-fashioned hotel with elements of Victoriana. I half expected to be asked to dress for dinner. ...
