Altiplanico Bellas Artes
Altiplanico Bellas Artes is an upmarket, innovative property in an arty neighbourhood close to the centre of Santiago.
Imaginative, top quality accommodation is on the up and up in Chile: nowadays you can choose to stay in a place where the whole experience is enhanced with imaginative décor, facilities and top-notch service.
The concept is one where you are made to feel you are in a home from home, without sacrificing all the comforts and facilities of a high end hotel. The Altiplanico Bellas Artes is situated in an arty district (The Fine Arts Museum is opposite) between the once Bohemian Italian quarter Bellavista with its trendy nightlife and the up-and-coming chic residential district Lastarria, with plenty of good restaurants, galleries, craft shops and bars nearby.
The Altiplanico group prides itself on creating properties which blends into to their environment; this one occupies a converted residence. But inside the décor is contemporary minimalist, capturing the luminosity of daylight in this sunny city.
