Hotel Bidasoa is tucked away on the northern fringe of Santiago, in the quiet neighbourhood of Vitacura. With its stylish botanical décor and eco-conscious vibe it feels like an oasis within the city from the moment you enter. If you’re just passing through Santiago this is a good choice for an overnight stay as it has all you need: a deck-garden area with a small lap-pool, welcoming bistro-style bar and a well-regarded Mediterranean-themed restaurant. There’s no need to venture out once you’re settled in.
They’re focussed on sustainability here: you’ll find eco-friendly toiletries, a lean on recycling and the hotel supports community initiatives. Vitacura has a few bars and restaurants within walking distance. Otherwise, upscale Las Condes and Providencia, with their array of restaurants and entertainment, are a short taxi ride.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
“We found Journey Latin America extremely friendly, helpful, patient and knowledgeable. We were very impressed with their pre-emptive approach to problems and issues, which were beyond their control, that arose before and during our 6 week trip. They worked as a team to resolve issues quickly and make excellent alternative arrangements. We had confidence in JLA from our first contact which proved well founded throughout the trip. We would have no hesitation in recommending them” Travelled to Brazil,Chile and ArgentinaRD Faversham
