The Hotel Foresta is located at the bottom of Santa Lucia hill in central downtown Santiago. It is a few 100 metres from the Bella Artes metro station and has great restaurants and bars nearby as well as the city centre, main square and Parque Forestal. While the building is old and the decor quaint, you can't beat the location,...

We were delighted with our room at Foresta. Yes, the bathroom particularly was run down, but hey, there was great water pressure in the shower, the room was huge and well-furnished, bed comfortable, and you weren't paying a ridiculous price! The doorman and desk staff were really friendly and helpful. The location couldn't be beaten.

We just loved the Foresta in the Barrio Lastarria. Were going to stay a couple of days but ended up staying a week. Walking distance to city centre, Mercado Centrale (a must see), close to metro stations and loads of great restaurants and bars around. Try Patagonia Restaurant - just fab - but the best of a list. The best...

We arrived at the Santiago bus station without a place to stay. The hostel we walked to was booked, and the girl there called a dozen places for us before we were able to get a room at Hotel Foresta (the last room they had available). We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived - we had a two room suite...

We stayed at the Foresta for 7 nights and it fit our needs perfectly. The price was definitely budget, but the service we received certainly wasn't. The staff was exceptional. They were very professional in appearance & demeanor and they were extremely helpful and courteous to us, despite our limited Spanish. Sebastian was especially helpful, going above & beyond his...

Pros: Great location, reasonably clean for the price Cons: Management promised us a non-smoking room but ours smelled and had ash trays; management didn't turn the central heat on (in the middle of winter!) until 10PM ... they promised us a portable heater but it never arrived after following up three times; the hotel is really showing its age, carpets,...

Hello everyone out there! Thank goodness for Tripadvisor!!!! Because of the great reviews I called (e-mail didn't work) and reserved a room in Spanish (a language I don't speak but my girlfriend told me the sentences I wanted to know and I wrote them down.) This hotel was perfect- the price was right, the employees wonderful. Bring your dictionary if...

I booked this hotel after reading some reviews here. They do not have a website, but we called them and had no trouble getting a reservation. We arrived late and they said we had the last room in the hotel. We were glad they did not give up our reservation as we had not given our credit card to reserve...

I choose the Foresta as it is recommended in Lonely Planet. I have traveled extensively throughout latin america using this guide book and usually the accommodations are bare bones, but clean and a good value for the low prices. This hotel was a step or two above the others. First, the location is excellent...very nice neighbourhood, close to 2 metro...
