Pros: The friendliness of the staff
Cons: Taxi never refund the remaining balance,not good for foreigners
Pros: Convenient for train and bus Quiet (with inside rooms) Big bathrooms Nice helpful ladies running the place Good value
Cons: Room decor showing its age. But Although it looks a bit tatty it was very clean
Pros: Very comfortable rooms and bed, kind and efficient staff, quiet
Cons: Reasonable location but a fair walk to town and bus station
Pros: Hotel was basic, but comfortable. Staff were very pleasant and very helpful, and navigated the new process for me to pay in cash with US dollars, thus avoiding the IVA. A few blocks from the centre of town and a few blocks from the bus station, but both walkable. Wi-Fi worked well. Close to the train station.
Cons: Breakfast was very disappointing, not uncommon in Chile. Just some slices of ham and cheese and some tasteless rolls, with yoghurt and (awful powdered) instant coffee. No fruit. No choice. No salad. Nothing cooked. I'd prefer a cheaper room rate without breakfast.
Pros: Typical friendly atmosphere and good recommendations of a commercial hotel but with large, light bedrooms and bathrooms. Quiet location yet near to centre and transport links.
Cons: More variety in the breakfast.
Pros: This is very close to the railway station and walking distance to everywhere else. Lovely ladies at the reception desk. I needed more than one

Pros: Confortable hotel with nice rooms and staff ...
Cons: The restaurant for diner was packed ... I waited 10 minutes no one came to my table to bring the menu ... so I decided to pass on dinner ... they needed more staff ... other than that nice business hotel to stay in chillan
Pros: The location
Cons: Apparently the staff does not consider the comments in the reservation. Always I have to ask for more towels, for example. Always they give me this kindly, anyway.
Pros: As always at DA hotels, the staff was excellent.
Cons: The eggs at DA Hotels are always COLD.

Pros: The host is super helpful. He was kind patient and very diligent. The main kitchen space is beautiful and great to work at.
Cons: The front rooms are a bit too loud.
Pros: Erik is an affable chap (If a bit elusive) and when you can find him will actually let you in and give you helpful advice about the grim conurbation which is Chillán. Típico is a pleasantly whacky place with lots of cooking facilities and a big lounge area. Shared but big bathrooms.
Cons: Difficult to find. Incorrect location on Google maps and absolutely no sign outside. Bunk beds made out of old pallets a bit rickety and almost dangerous to climb into.
Pros: Very friendly and helpful owner who speaks Spanish and English. Close to train and bus. Quiet and clean.
Cons: A bit hard to find, since it is a private house.
Pros: Good kitchen.
Cons: Hard to find (no sign or bell).
Pros: received a very nice introduction of Chillan.
Cons: location on map is not so correct.
Pros: Erick was great and waited up for me even if I arrived past 10pm. The hostel is really nice and has all you might need. Easy to reach the train and bus station.
Cons: It was all perfect.
Pros: Erik, the owner, is a very nice guy and always ready to help you or to give you good tips. The kitchen was the best place to hang around. There is also a common tv room and a place to grill outside. Location is great, just near the bus (2) and train stations. I will go again there when back in Chillán.
Cons: Everything quite old, needs some renovation. But at least clean.
Pros: Great host, wonderful directions to see everything in Chillan - very warm and welcoming! Honestly a lovely place to stay, clean and super friendly.
Cons: Hard to find! If you don’t have maps/internet access you need to know it is on Av. liberator Bernardo O’Higgins (not simply “O’Higgins”) - and is a house with an unmarked door located opposite Hotel Diego De Almagro. A pink/red building with the number “380” to the right of the door. Hope that helps!
Pros: Nice host Ideal location for bus travels
Pros: The owner Erik is just fabulous. He is sooo helpful and cheery. Some of the facilities are a bit ‘rustic’ but are more than made up for by Erik’s attitude.
Cons: Could have had a few more usable hooks and also somewhere to hang washing to dry.

Pros: Buffet and the room
Pros: Excelent hotel at a convenient price.
Cons: The view.
Pros: Spacious rooms, good breakfast, central.
Cons: Difficult to find by car. The colour has changed from the pink hotel on the website! And the name Isabel Requelme isn't very prominent from the road. We managed (just!) to park in a paid space outside but there isn't any reserved space for guests to drop off cases.
Pros: The room was large. The bed was comfortable. The toiletries were good. The room had windows that could be opened.
Cons: No kettle or tea making facilities in the room (or available eksewhere) for guests to make their own hot drinks. A 2 person couch would have been nice - the room was big enough. I am a not a Chilean resident, and I was using a foreign (Australian) credit card to pay my account. On checkout my initial account was for roughly 85,000 pesos. When I asked if the account could be is US$, (based on a hunch and recalling some small print on my booking information) it was reissued, and the IVA tax (of over 13,000 pesos) disappeared. I saved myself this sizeable expense. I do not believe this is correct. IVA should not be charged for non residents using a foreign credit card whstever the currency used, and the hotel could have done more to advise me of their "system".
Pros: Very good location, friendly staff, and comfortable bed.
Cons: Repairs were being made, so a bit noisy. Could improve on the breakfast.
Pros: Right in downtown, close to everything in the city. The service was very friendly and efficient.
Cons: Nohing really bad. I didn't stay long though.

Cons: the room bed was poor, the breakfast is poor as well. They used the security staff to serve people on the dining room

Pros: Very pleasurable stay in Chilean - the hotel is not far from everything. Great views of the mountains and volcano if there is no smoke from fires on the horizon - or haze in the mornings. Delivered breakfast is nice too. Friendly personnel.
Pros: A great hotel with fabulous staff in a very central location. Would definitely recommend for city views and substantial breakfast (delivered to room)and a coffee percolator, microwave and toaster.Had spotlessly clean facilities and comfortable warm bed and room. Nice little coffee shop next door while we waited for our lift to arrive..12 pm check out useful.
Pros: The staff were friendly and helpful, and even did a bag of laundry for us (at a cost) with very quick turnaround time. The location is 5 mins walk from the centre, where you can find shops, bars and restaurants. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast being delivered to the room the night before is a nice touch. 12 o'clock check-out is also great.
Cons: Reception didn't appear to be expecting us, even though we showed the confirmation they still had to call someone to confirm. The rooms were not well sound-proofed - we were in room 7 and could hear people talking in adjoining rooms until late at night.
Pros: Wills on reception was very helpful. As he was showing me to my room the lift crashed between 2nd and 3rd floors. He stayed calm, called for help, and once we were rescued he carried my large suitcase up to the 12th floor. One block from Plaza de Armas. Good value.

Pros: It used to be a good place to stay. It has not received any maintenance at all.
Pros: Friendly check-in/out staff. Quiet location.
Cons: Chillan can be fearsomely hot in Summer. Unusually it was not on the date of our stay. This was fortunate because there is no air conditioning. Most things were serviceable and while everything was clean, it is all outdated. Although low, the price did not reflect value for money. Those familiar wth British Premier Inns would not be impressed.
Pros: Close to the highway, and very comfortable parking
Pros: Nice staff. Warm in all areas of the hotel
Cons: The hotel is a bit run down. The carpets in the corridors needs to be replaced. Roads into the main entrance needs to be repaired. They are full of holes.

Pros: Very basic , but functional .
Pros: The proximities to the downtown are half a block from the city square. Great!. It has a perfect location.

Pros: Staff were excellent- very helpful. Really impressed with friendliness. Good size room with a chair and desk area. Bathroom was above average. Fan was a nice touch. Place was quite at night.
Cons: Breakfast times are a little late (had to leave before it started at 7:30) but do go till 10 ish.
Pros: Staff helpful despite my inability to speak Spanish. Very central to everything.
Cons: Rooms need fans to help cool of a night
Pros: I liked the breakfast simple enough and kills the hunger. Also it was pretty quiet so you can rest easy in the night. I also liked the matress, it was pretty firm and nice. The service and staff was outstanding.
Cons: The water pressure was lacking, I´m very nitpicky with that. Also there wasn't any shampoo. The room in which we stayed had a hole below the little desk that every double room has. besides that, everything was pretty good.

Pros: The breakfast is good but i wasn't informed by staff that i should ask for eggs and if i hadn't noticed other persons eating them i'd just get some sandwich for the breakfast.
Cons: The rooms are very basic, few space. Including at the twin room there was only one socket so we couldn't charge our cellulars at time.
Cons: Very expensive regarding the quality. Not good breakfast.
Pros: They held a room for me until my 10 pm arrival.
Cons: The room was a smokers room and I couldn’t stand the smell. Also was very close to reception so quite noisy.
Pros: The location
Cons: How stuffy the room was
Pros: The staff was EXCELLENT, the room was comfortable, clean, and warm. Very nice that breakfast included eggs (with cheese, if you want!)
Cons: The only problem came at check out. If you are a foreigner paying in a foreign currency (including credit cards, it's not a cash only rule) you are not supposed to be charged the tax. The site says they take credit cards and the reservation was made in dollars, but at checkout I was informed that I could only avoid the tax if I paid in cash that they could not charge it in dollars. Six months I've been in Chile and never come across this situation, neither in nice hotels or crappy dorm hostels. If the place takes credit card (some places don't and there of course you have to pay in cash), charging in dollars has never been a problem... So why is it here?
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff!
Cons: It could have been a bit cleaner in the bathroom..

Cons: There is no sign on the property to indicate it is the hotel and from the street it looks like a house so we went past it several times. It would be helpful if they could put up some better signage.
Pros: IT is a nice room I stayed it----the breakfast was enjoyable, and there is a TV in the room where I was able to watch CNN Nsws, which I follow wherever possible on my travels.
Cons: I think the room could have a bit more heat when the weather is cooler.
Pros: A nice property with lots of facilities and helpful staff. would stay here again

Pros: Clean, good rooms, close to the station, wonderful staff.
