Principado Express Hotel, Santiago
Too noisy
The hotel is located across the street from a bus stop. There was too much noise; even late at night we could hear loud laughter. The staff hardly spoke English; we communicated through google translator.

good location in Santiago
The hotel is in a great location and the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They helped us with tour and restaurant information. The room was lovely and value added for the price. The only recommendation I would suggest is an email address that can be used to contact the hotel ahead of time. The contact info online to book a room did not appear to work for other questions. This might have been my fault in not understanding contact info. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great location, but noisy, cold and a little dirty
This was in a great location and the staff are kind which is why it gets three stars still. However, this was a VERY noisy location and the windows, curtains and doors kept no sound out. It was also very cold in the room and everywhere in the hotel. When we arrived late at night after almost 24 hours travelling I had to clean the bath as it had hair all over it and in the plug hole. One night drumming went on outside until 23:30 . Another night people were setting fire crackers off at 3-4am !!! It is a good location near to many great bars and restaurants and a lot of tourist attractions. It has busy roads both sides of the hotel so it will always be noisy, and bus stops outside mean around 5am chatting begins, and seeing as the partying only dies down at 3am it's not at all peaceful. We stayed here for 1 week and we were very ready to leave. Had we not known we were going somewhere else that was quiet straight after we would have had to check out early as we were at our wit's end. However, the breakfast was good for the room price. 2.5 - 3 stars
