Isabel is a great hostess; helpful and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. Her apartment is in a great location and easy walking distance to the metro and to beautiful Parque Bicentinario. Her apartment is one bedroom and one bath (off the bedroom) with a balcony that runs almost the length of the apartment. My sister and I intended to stay our entire trip 9 nights but stayed there only 4 nights. The afternoon sun beats onto all the windows that run almost the entire length of the apartment. The oven-like heat coupled with the constant road noise made it impossible to get a good night's sleep. Even with the windows closed there was too much road noise. Additionally, she needs to fix the toilet; she explained to us that you need to turn the supply line on and off after each use as the toilet runs. When she stays at the apartment she sleeps in a (storage ?) room off the kitchen. Because there is only one bath (off the bedroom) that everyone shares, she should consider renting her apartment as an airbnb instead of calling it a Bed and Breakfast.
Es muy increible tener en la vida la oportunidad de disfrutar de pequeños placeres que nos hacen felices y nos gratifican de la manera que lo hizo nuestra estancia en The magic house. Se respira un ambiente mágico, donde la atención es excelente y la comodidad de las instalaciones hacen que uno quiera prolongar su estancia. Es relmente excelente en todos los aspectos!!!!!
My partner and I stayed several times during February 2011 while vacationing in Chile. The photographs are genuine images of the house. Very comfortable beds, soft and inviting linen. The owner Dennis is friendly, approachable and helpful. Really good standards.
This Hotel is located about 40 minutes south of Santiago downtown in a place known as Pirque. It is for those who loves peace and nature instead of standard hotel rooms in the middle of the cities. This Hotel is located about 40 minutes south of Santiago downtown in a place known as Pirque. It is for those who loves peace and nature instead of standard hotel rooms in the middle of the cities. The hotel is pretty near from the famous viña Concha Y Toro (less than 5 minutes) where you can have a 1h30 visit with wine and cheese tasting. I went there with my wife for 4 days and I can assure you that it is very clean and cozy and the owner's treatment is wonderful. The breakfast is great!
This summer I went with my husband to Santiago and we stayed at Casa Bonita. In the moment we entered the house we were amaized by the beauty of the house. Casa Bonita is an old house restaured perfetly and furnished with excellent taste. The rooms are really beautiful with very nice decoration, excellent natural light and confortable beds and pillows. The breakfast is quite complete with nice and fresh coffee and served by Dennis the inkeeper. Really nice person always willing to help and give nice tips about Santiago. I totally recomend Casa Bonita for your stay in Santiago. Thank you Dennis and Carolina for such a nice stay in your beautiful B&B.
One of the nicest hosts we have come across and also such great rooms and beds. We highly recommend people to stay here as it is close to everything including the subway which will take you everywhere. Great restaurants a short stroll away and the breakfasts were also top notch. We are telling all our friends and family about this great place.
We were pleasantly surprised with the accomodations and hospitality at El Magnolio B&B. Although a little hard to find, the setting is wonderfully peaceful and well situated for wine country and Cajon el Maipo touring. The building is a wonderful refurbished old adobe. Rooms are large and pleasant. Mary was very helpful with directions and reservations. Plan on eating in transit or at the B&B as there are no restaurants close by. Highly recommended.
My husband and I stayed at the Casa Bonita, April 2009 for 3 nights and it was wonderful. Dennis and Carolina ( the owners) were wonderful. They were more than happy to give us information about everything from sightseeing to local markets. The room was very large, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was perfect with fresh squeezed orange juice, scrambled eggs ( Dennis makes awesome eggs!), warm bread, cheese, ham, yogurt, mueseli...coffee, tea... The location is so close to the metro, it is simple to get around. I would recommend this Bed & Breakfast to anyone staying in Santiago.
Oct 5, 2008 We had a wonderful week staying at El Magnolio in the beautiful house run Mery Hern as a bed and breakfast. The accommodation was, for many reasons, among the best we have stayed in, anywhere in the world. The house was beautifully furnished and decorated with comfortable rooms and was spotlessly clean. Mexican touches to the decor gave colour and warmth. The bed was wonderfully comfortable with beautiful pillows and linen. The towels, always an indicator of a generous and well run establishment, were excellent. Mery provided flavoursome homemade meals,introducing us to some Chilean specialties. Mery couldn't do enough to help us. On top of all this we really felt we were staying with our best friend, such was the hospitality and the great conversations at the dining table. We were truly sad to leave. We would wholeheartedly recommend this accommodation for people touring in this area.
