Call it Ismael 312. Some years ago — never mind how long precisely — having little in the way of design hotels, and nothing particular to interest the restless global nomad, the insular city of Santiago quietly took to the construction of a new crop of contemporary boutique hotels. Among the first fruits of this new wave of hotel construction is Ismael 312, a nine-story contemporary boutique hotel in an easy-on-the-eye modern minimalist style, just off the Parque Forestal in Santiago’s historic city center. Semi-transparent glass-walled bathrooms, flat-screen televisions, full-length windows — it’s clear Ismael 312’s proprietors have been paying attention to the interior-design conventions of the boutique-hotel world. This clean-lined look has quickly become the global standard, instantly rendering a million flowery bedspreads obsolete. Here, if you’re fortunate, you’ve got a view of the park from a private balcony; if not, you can content yourself with the pared-down simplicity of your room’s contemporary design. Don’t expect five-star extravagance — Ismael 312 is little more than a pied-a-terre. In this neighborhood, though, that’s more than enough — you’re surrounded by restaurants and picturesque old streets, not to mention the park with its selection of museums, perfectly placed to circumambulate the city of a dreamy Sabbath afternoon.

I was only here for two nights before flying home, but I enjoyed my stay and whistle-stop tour of Santiago. The hotel receptionist gave me a great recommendation of where to eat.. and what sites to visit in my limited time. I would definitely stay here again if ever I'm back.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I recently stayed at the funky boutique Hotel Ismael and could not have been happier with our choice. We had a lovely comfortable room facing the Parque Forestal, which included a very good breakfast. The hotel is in a great location with an easy stroll to lovely cafes, restaurants and the main attractions. Our stay was made extra special because of the fabulous staff. Specifically I want to thank Daniela and Sergio who went out of their way to accommodate a later than usual check out and whose help and care went above and beyond expectations. Highly recommend!

We had a nice stay the the Hotel Ismael. It is in a great location next to a park and walking distance to a lot of tourist sites in the city. The breakfast is good, although they served pretty much the same thing every day with a few small variations. The best part of the hotel was the front desk staff especially Daniella and Diego. They were both so helpful. Daniella helped us check in a little early which was fantastic after an overnight flight. She also gave us a map and directions and advice on how to best see some of the local attractions. Diego helped us book an afternoon wine tour that we really enjoyed. He also remembered our names every time we came back into the hotel which we thought was impressive considering we didn’t stay that many nights. One thing we didn’t like was that the cell phone service and wifi did not work very well in our room. Im not sure if it would be like that in every room or just because of where our room was located within the hotel. The other thing that kinda bothered us was a slight sewage smell that would sometimes come from our bathroom. We weren’t in our room much other than to sleep so it didn’t bother us enough to complain or switch rooms but we felt it should be noted. Overall it was a really good budget friendly hotel in a great location where we felt safe. (For reference we are two Americans in our 30s)

Very friendly and helpful staff in a well located hotel. The rooms are small but well laid out with a nice functional bathroom and even a small kitchenette with a microwave and mini sink. Room has double glazing to keep the traffic noise to a comfortable level.

I have never had an experience in a hotel even close to our stay at Hotel Ismael! The staff was so friendly and kind. Diego went out of his way to ensure we had a comfortable stay. Not only did he give us great advice for any questions, he paid attention to little details (such lending a yoga mat). Diego was an absolute hero for accommodating us with a late check out when we had a crazy flight time back home. The breakfast buffet was also a big hit for us with quality food and coffee. The location of the hotel is spectacular, near Parque Forestal, lovely for morning walks or run, and near Lastarria with all of its great restaurants. It’s also quite central for sightseeing in Santiago. 110% would recommend a stay at this lovely hotel!

We stayed in Hotel Ismael for one night. Diego gave us a warm welcome as did the young man who helped us with our luggage. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It’s in a great location. Lovely swimming pool.

Exceptional hotel in a great location! Highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for a wonderful experience in Santiago. Friendly and helpful staff. Hospitality at this hotel is out of this world, especially Diego. We were so well cared for during our stay. Quiet street overlooking the park, yet steps away from Lastarria, a lively street with many bars and restaurants. Nice rooms with TV, air con and a mini fridge. Very clean. Water bottle refill station! Delicious buffet breakfast with a variety of fresh options. We also enjoyed the rooftop terrace and pool multiple times during our stay! Look no further if you want a stay to remember in Santiago.

The hotel is everything we expected and needed, a comfortable, clean room, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and also a convenient location. What was a very positive surprise is that the hotel is located on a private street that only allows circulation to those who live there. Along that street is a park - which is beautiful for a morning run - and on the far side of the park is the first street. The result is that the rooms facing the front of the building are very quiet. It is extra nice to wake up in the middle of bustling Santiago to the chirping of the birds after a good rest.

We stayed for 2 nights before joining a cruise. The Ismael is a nice boutique hotel in a convenient central location. The breakfast includes a broad range of choices and there is no extra charge for an espressso. Our room was a bit compact but comfortable and clean. Good value. Staff are efficient and helpful. Recommended.
