I visited the hotel as part of an organized tour around Chile. The hotel was in a great location for all the local attractions, bars & restaurants. The room I had (620) was fairly large, and had a small balcony, although the view was not that great. The bed was huge, and very comfortable. The bathroom was standard, although they...

This is a hotel much used by touring groups and I feel this makes some of the staff blase about solving your problems. If your room isn't equipped with a plug in either the sink or bath (I stayed here three times and saw neither on any occasion) the chances of the them getting you one are very slim. Once...

Pleasant staff, with a little English. Room lovely size but so noisy. Spent one night on sofa because of next doors tv. Good bar. Adequate breakfast. Good area for sightseeing. Found there to be a shortage of restaurants in the immediate area except for fast food.

A nice and average hotel, located quite good in Santiago. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was also just renovated. The only point for improvement in our view would be the breakfast- the bread and the pastries could be fresher.

The staff at Hotel Fundador, especially those at reception are exceptionally welcoming. There's a great bar with good ambience and excellent snacks. The restaurant also serves good food. On the other hand the breakfast was poor, and many items ran out as the tour guests descended down in large groups.

I usually do not write reviews and as a matter of fact, I had to open a TripAdvisor account just because I wanted to do my due diligence and warn fellow travelers about this dump. My husband and I were forced to stay here for 2 nights as we traveled with a group tour. I want to start by saying...

The hotel is dated. Down a side street which I would not describe as nice. Staff as everywhere in Chile were friendly. Room was likewise dated although very large. Breakfast fair. Frankly the Plaza San Francisco where we also stayed on our trip is far nicer and in the same area although on the main boulevard.

This is a very busy hotel with many tour groups coming and going, regardless the front desk staff worked hard to meet individual needs. Mario was especially helpful in making sure we did not have to change rooms and remembered us personally when we returned 10 days later. A similar positive attitude was apparent in all the staff.

Liked a quiet cozy room which did not represent anything special but was perfect for a comfortable short stay. Standard double with a large bed may seem to be on the small side for two while just right for a single guest. Cleaned regularly, worth noting a pleasant smell. The building itself is not very new but beautiful, and there...
