Mercure Santiago Centro
Ranked #68 of 202 Hotels in Santiago
Reviewed 27 June 2017

My very first impression was far from the best. When arrived no single staff gave me a hand with suitcases. Room was clean, of good size but the air-con noise was there 24/7. I complained but nothing was done. Front office was very helpful once I checked-in. When departing at 5:30 am, many staff but no-one was there to help me get a taxi.

Room Tip: Far from lifts and make sure no air-con noise

I really liked this modern Mercure hotel. The rooms are around 27 square metres, so a good size and the facilities good( although I didn't see the pool or gym). The location is wonderfull. Yes, I would certainly
return to this hotel on a return visit to Santiago.

Clean, modern and central location. We ordered an airport pick up through the hotel and although it cost more than a taxi it was comforting to arrive in a foreign country and be met without the hassle of haggling taxi drivers. Staff were helpful arranging pick ups, we had to depart for the airport at 2.30am one morning and the taxi was on time and staff were in the lobby which felt safe. The hotel has great showers and comfortable beds, the only downfall was the loud aircon which is needed during the cold winter nights.

We stayed here twice, 3 nights in May and 1 night in June. Both times we had a great stay. The rooms are nice and clean and modern, the shower is great with hot water all the time. The wifi works well and is fast.

We loved the breakfast, so much choice and delicious! We even had dinner in the restaurant twice.
The staff was always friendly and helpful with any questions we had.
Location is great, next to Santa Lucia subway stop and across the road from Santa Lucia Hill.

Stayed: May 2017

Stayed four nights May 2017. As an AccorPlus Le Club member, we were automatically upgraded to the next level of room but that is as far as Australian membership got us.
After checking around many other hotels, we settled on this one due to the expectation that the facilities would be familiar due to our membership. We were surprised at the great standard of the hotel (the pictures online don't do it justice). We had two rooms opposite each other on the top floor with great views. The rooms were spacious, exceptionally clean and well appointed. Beds were comfortable and we found no faults with either room or facilities. Everything worked.

Breakfast was included and it was the very reassuring same layout and fare we are used to seeing everywhere with Accor. The scrambled eggs are just as bad here as every other Accor venue we've stayed at around the world. Still edible though and everything else is fine - a good variety and standard.

We ate in the restaurant 4 nights out of five and were quite surprised at how good the food and service was. Easily Sofitel standard in other places and probably better. The service was outstanding as indeed it was throughout the hotel. The cocktail bar attendant did seem to have an unusually high interest in having us pay cash rather than booking to the room (which we did in fact insist on - mainly because of his keenness for cash).

Check in and out is efficient and the staff are just fantastic, very helpful and English speaking. We were ready to settle the final account with cash Pesos and were utterly dumbfounded that this would have attracted a 19% added cost. The invoice was highlighted to be paid in US$ which would not attract a surcharge, as was the same using a credit card. I guess this is a national thing, but is a little distasteful nonetheless.

A great hotel and located just about perfectly in the centre of the city on the major routes with many major attractions within 5 minutes walk. One of the best markets for crafts in the city, just a couple of doors down and MacDonalds a couple of doors in the other direction.

Thoroughly recommend this hotel! It's a quiet achiever and the staff are exceptional, particularly in the restaurant, front desk and management.

Room Tip: Street facing good - but back side not so bad either. We had both.

Dear Mr. Rod-VIC,

We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay with us on TripAdvisor. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback.

We are really glad that you enjoyed the services provided by our staff, I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to continuously improve the quality of our services.

I would like to tell you that IVA it is a national requirement and the only way that foreign guests can avoid this charge is presenting their passport + emigration papers (PDI) + payment in foreign currency, proving that is not Chilean or resident in Chile.

Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one.

Best regards,

Kimberly - Asist. Calidad
