Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The roof is the place to be at Public Hotel! You can’t go wrong with the 360° panoramic view. This isn’t just a summer spot, it’s also great place to be for the winter too with the heated igloos! They have an indoor & outdoor portion. Jaime was such an accommodating & welcoming host, it is always a pleasure seeing him. Destinee provided exceptional customer service, she always made sure to check in on us. I have been here countless times, definitely recommend!

January 27, 2024 at 10 PM The facade is marvelous. Before even entering the Hotel we became entranced by the walkway. Upon entering the first wonder we see is the beautiful escalators. Who would've thought that escalators would be such an amazing sight to see in 2024. The host, Sebastián, happily escorted us to our seats, but before that Dimitry and my partner began their own charade. I have no idea what they spoke about since it was in Russian. They giggled so much that I thought they knew each other from somewhere else. The beginning was already such a delight and we hadn't even sat down yet. I can't tell who our main waiter was because we received so much positive attention from the staff. Even the chef asked how our night was and that really made us feel super special. I believe our main waiter was Marcello. His suggestions were spot on. The Ceviche bowl is a must have always. The Pisco sour drinks were also delicious. The setting is surreal. Literally feels like we were submerged into a luxurious restaurant in a jungle. It's almost 4 am. I'm too sleepy to write more. The experience was AMAZING. Definitely a must go to.

Ricardo was nothing short but AMAZING. He was extremely attentive, friendly, and he knew the menu to a T. I’m a super picky eater so he recommended the Chica 2023 Passionfruit cocktail and the oven roasted chicken. Everything was amazing. I would recommend this place a million times over.
