This hotel is in a handy location in downtown Santiago and has parking, though that is down a very tight descending spiral behind and underneath the hotel. It's not at all Japanese in approach so don't be fooled by the name. The room was comfortable if a bit dated, with an aircon blocking most of the window. Not too much outside noise. Staff were generally very helpful (for the important exception, see below). Breakfast was ok - about on a par with most South American places we've stayed. However, everything was spoiled for me by the manager's dishonesty. Hotel Nippon advertises a price "including taxes and fees" but Andreina refused to deduct the 19% IVA for foreign guests who have the correct (visa etc) paperwork. In Chile, the advertised price legally must include IVA and this should always be deducted for overseas guests, unless it is a very small/remote operation. Sadly, I can't recommend a property which behaves dishonestly like this, and does not correct their error when it is pointed out. By pocketing the 19% for themselves, they disadvantage international visitors - and also disadvantage their competition, who behave properly. This was the only accommodation I encountered in my recent trip Chile who kept the 19%, and they should not be supported. (From other reviews I have seen that some travellers have been able to get the IVA deducted - by insisting. Sadly, that did not work for me).

Altogether a good hotel, we also enjoyed our second stay It’s a nice hotel with a very friendly staff, free parking and a perfect location, near the center and subway station, but still in a nice neighborhood. The room size is good, the bathroom really nice and a good bed. Though there is some space for improvement, basic decoration, dirty windows and airco and we had hardly any warm water. Breakfast is ok, but not so much choice.

For someone who is a world traveller with more than half a million km passed in her lifetime it is difficult not to have a single objection about a place - well, this is the place. Everything here is more than great - extremely kind and helpful receptionists, maids, staff in the hotel restaurant. Perfect WiFi, excellent food, superb location, and all this for a reasonable price.

The location is convenient, only a short walk from Baquedano station. The room was clean and quiet. The water in the shower was hot. The staff were friendly and helpful especially with storing our luggage before and after our stay.

It is a nice hotel but not sure if it is a 3-star hotel. Breakfast was included. The receptionist was really friendly. She helped us a lot and provided us a map and showed us all historical points. Wifi was not good. It has a bar and security 24 hours

We had a one night stay in April as part of a Chimu Adventures tour. It was a good choice for what we wanted [just a place to sleep], as we ate at a good restaurant in Bella Vista. It is in a good area located a short distance down a side street and within easy walking distance of Plaza de Armas, Cerro Santa Lucia, Bella Vista, and the subway trains. The staff were friendly and helpful and gave us some good advise to help us get around. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. We recommend the hotel if you want one in a good location for visiting Santiago.

I do not know who gives the stars to chilean hotels, but most are over-rated. 4 stars? Please!. Noisy place (trafic), not very friendly reception, really small meeting room, and given the name, I would have expected japanesse food. But for lunch, an undefined first course, followed by spagetti in a "Alfredo-like" sauce with pieces of overcooked chicken. Good dessert though. And my opinion was shared by 7 people.

It is shorter to recall the good points: (1) the location is good ! 15 minutes by foot from plaza de Armas and 5 minutes from the piato bellavista (2) the front desk personnel were very nice and helpful (3) the Wi-Fi internet was OK. Breakfast was reasonable. Other than those: the contact person didn't reply to my emails - only after I called she confirmed my visit, she "organized" a taxi from the airport at a cost of US$40 where this trip shouldn't cost more than US$15, the room was dark and dirty, there were no free electrical sockets for the electrical devices, the bed made terrible wooden noises when I turned in it, the shampoo and the paper roles in the bathroom were renewed only after I approached the front desk, the refrigerator and the safe are locked and one needs to deposit US$50 in order to use them, the room key (magnetic card) stop functioning 3 times and each time I had to go down to the front desk to fix it, the dirty curtain hardly covered the dirty window and its rails were loose, you could hear everything that happened in nearby rooms. Finally, the light in the bathroom stop functioning one morning and when I came back to the room after the cleaning lady was there it was still not functioning. I have no idea how she cleaned the dark bathroom (I wonder) and why she didn't inform the technical stuff. It is possible that I missed something but you get the idea. I for sure not planning to use it again.

The hotel is in a nice location, not far from the subway (Plaza Italiano) and Belle Vista (10-15 minute walk). Staff is friendly, speak English well and are very helpful. The breakfast is decent, not great, but the buffet provides enough selections to assemble a good morning meal. The rooms are quiet and comfortable, but as the previous posting said, the hotel is in dire need of renovation, especially in the bathrooms. WiFi strength is poor in the rooms, so you'll have to go to the lobby to get a decent connection. It's a good hotel, just needs a facelift.

Hotel is due for a refurb, other than this its somewhat reasonable. Only hotel to date that eggs aren't provided for breakfast and an additional charge is required. I'm sure there is better value for money elsewhere in Santiago.
