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.

The three Chileans in the group were late back to the bus. The Swiss guy told them in Spanish that everyone in the group except him were annoyed they were late, which then led the Chileans to ask to change bus. He assumed that no one else could speak Spanish and as the day wore on, he became more and more annoying.
We drove a further two hours through the ...
... a seaford curry and for desert, a black bean pannacotta (scrumptious). The next morning we get up before sunrise (which is around 7:30am here) to head for the mountains. This takes another 3 hours, but the drive is worth it for the sights. We see countless Guanaco (similar to llama), Nandus (small ostrich) and many other large birds. The national park of the Torres del Paine is a very protected area and we must sign a few things and watch a video before we can explore ...
