In a city the size of Santiago, with its buzzing barrios and dramatic Andean backdrop, you need to choose the perfect place to rest. Happily, Chile’s capital brings spoonfuls of spirited South American energy when you want it and sleep-ready boutique hotels when you don’t. Discover our top picks for the best places to stay in Santiago, bookable with Culture Trip.

This bastion of old-world comfort in the heart of high-rise ‘Sanhattan’ (aka chic Las Condes), offers white-gloved service, refined dining and a rooftop pool and spa. Opened in 2003, this stalwart of South American hospitality has stayed the test of time. Tee-up a round of golf at the nearby Country Club, followed by an al fresco lunch in the upscale eatery Estró. Clinch the deal in the lounge bar with one of more than a dozen varieties of Pisco sour and unwind in the jacuzzi as the sun kisses the snow-capped Andes.

Being in the bohemian barrio of Lastarria is possibly the best of a bunch of reasons for staying at Casa Bueras. The stylish interiors and the pool (a rarity for most Santiago boutique hotels) are two more good reasons to stay put. But resist the temptation to hunker down entirely at your luxury retreat; with Santiago’s Parque Forestal and Cerro Santa Lucía on the doorstep, as well as the city’s best dive bars, restaurants, galleries and hipster hangouts, this is a brilliant base camp.
