We based our South American trip at Casadetodos as we flying into and out of Santiago. On our arrival we were met by the happy smiling faces of Vivi and Christina, who insisted on lugging our heavy cases to our first floor room.
The hotel is attractive in a traditional Spanish style, security is excellent, no one enters until they've buzzed reception, when the gate magically clicks open.
The room itself - number 7, was spacious with a totally separate bathroom suite. The shower was great despite it being within the bath and the hot water taking what seemed an eternity to come through. I liked the handles on the bath which were perfect to rest the feet on while washing the lower leg - we're both in our sixties.
So we based ourselves here and took trips to Valparaiso, Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The hotel looked after our large cases to allow us to travel with our smaller bags.
Breakfast was just about right - help yourself buffet and fresh coffee, the only hot food available was toast and scrambled egg. I tried my luck with requesting fried eggs and got away with it twice, which became a bit of a joke. But that was the beauty of this place, the excellent staff who had a great sense of humour. After a day or two it was like they were family or great friends.
The proprietor Christophe was equally as convivial, always prepared to have a chat and give advice we even enjoyed a beer with him one evening.
We couldn't recommend this good value hostelry too much, it was just perfect for our needs, centrally positioned but in a side street, so not too noisy for traffic as you sometimes encounter at city centre accommodation.
Room Tip: Room 7 was great - we peered into another being cleaned, it seemed smaller.
