6/10 Good

Okay hotel
Not a good place for business travelers, the room has nothing, I mean nothing. The breakfast doesn’t open until 7:30. The room is kind run down. I paid $99USD, not a smart choice.

2/10 Poor

The hotel charged me for the stay, in addition to what Orbitz charged me. It never returned money after repeated disputes.

8/10 Very Good

The breakfast was very good. The pool was nice and refreshing. The staff was very nice and accomodating. The only thing that was a little disconcerting was when we arrived after midnight the hotel was all locked up. Luckily our driver knew how to contact the staff to let us in.

2/10 Poor

Had three requested to fix our aircon, did not happen, cooked in the room, very unpleasant. Next day insisted on changing rooms which they did, Next room aircon was very cold and could not reset. Food was terrible, ordered a steak and it tasted like salmon, must have boiled it on the same spot. Not value for money at all.

10/10 Exceptional

The Almacruz is a gem and a cultural tribute to the Mapuche people. The hotel houses a museum (enjoy the complimentary tour and glass of wine) and the decor is a reflection of this culture. This otel has a positive energy that is driven by the hands on and responsive Manager Jose. Both he and his staff went out of their way to meet our needs. The hotel could use updates such as new towels and mattress. The Chef and kitchen staff are top flight in terms of both taste and presentation. Highly recommend the Almacruz for sn authentic Chilean experience!
