Expert reviews

The Guardian review:

“This 42-room property opened in October 2016 to rave reviews. It ingeniously intertwines old and new as chequered tiles, marble staircases and reconstructed stained-glass windows appear alongside ultramodern light fixtures, geometric furnishings and vertigo-inducing glass floors.”

Lonely Planet review:

“No two rooms are exactly alike at this artfully designed boutique hotel, which masterfully intertwines old and new within the confines of a restored 1920s office building. Checkered tiles, marble staircases and stained-glass windows.”

Telegraph review:

“A grand historic house just steps from the old town. Santiago’s first urban design hotel combines sleek modern elements with its Neo-Gothic heritage. A black-and-white marble entrance and exposed brick walls are juxtaposed with an industrial-style suspended metal staircase, a bronze reception desk and potted magnolias.”

The hotel is only a few minutes’ walk away from the national art gallery, Bellas Artes, Museo Arte de Luz, Santiago Town Square, Palacio de la Moneda and Plaza de la Constitucion. The “cozy refuge of calm and restfulness” is situated at the foot of the Cerro Santa Lucia hilltop park and is the first urban design hotel of its kind with neo-gothic heritage.

Featuring a black and white marble entrance with a suspended metal staircase and bronze reception desk, the hotel wows guests as soon as they come through the front doors and the wow factor is only magnified every step further in. Stained-glass windows featuring the coats of arms, heavy wooden doors, modern geometric light fittings and glass walkways… All of the features and more make this hotel one of the best.

All of the soundproof rooms are furnished with extra-long beds, a private bathroom, minibar, coffee machine, a flat-screen cable TV, safety-deposit box and more.

Exceptional experience. Multiple staff members available and efficient and friendly. Beautiful, quiet, comfortable room with extra amenities like bathrobes, mini bar, safe, etc. Netflix and Amazon Prime on a large screen conveniently located right in front of bed for easy viewing. Very nice buffet breakfast and a lovely rooftop dining area

Liked everything

Great stay at Hotel Magnolia in Santiago

Great hotel, centrally located. The rooms were new, clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Shower was great (just a little weird that there was no actual door separating the bathroom. It had a glass see-through door). Staff was exceptional, as was the breakfast! Nice rooftop terrace serving great food and drinks. I would definitely stay here again!

The best place to stay in Santiago

The location and the facilities are excellent. The rooftop restaurant is excellent. Our room was ready early and very clean.

A great city stay!

I really liked the Magnolia, the breakfast was good and the staff friendly. The rooms are lovely and the rooftop is great, we had cocktails and dinner on the roof and it was good value and a lovely place to sit with good views!

The breakfast coffee isn't that good, when I asked for a stronger cup I was told I could pay for a Nespresso coffee but there was no way to make it stronger - this was only a small thing.

Only stayed overnight between flights but a charming place todo that

Very unusual design with great ambiance and combination of old style and modern elements Excellent restaurant Excellent location close to gardens and restaurants Good breakfast Only 20 minutes from airport

Provision of milk for making a cup of tea would have been nice Nothing in particular

Everything was perfect. Great location right in the middle of Santiago. The staff was very friendly and the hotel has a super nice rooftop bar

Super stylish Art Deco hotel in Central Santiago with a roof terrace.

Hotel Magnolia is just beautiful - so tastefully designed with a pared back, curated Art Deco feel. The bedrooms are cool and spacious and, once again, exquisitely designed. Your balcony is very private with a good amount of foliage separating you from your neighbours and it's great to just watch Santiago from up high including towards the San Cristobal Park. The room has a fridge and a selection of snacks and drinks on sale. The lovely bathroom offers gorgeous toiletries. There's a real laid back feel about the place but it's worth wandering around to see some the public rooms - stunning. The roof top bar is lovely too with a seating area for food and then cushioned area to relax with drinks. It's not open terribly late though so if you're hoping for a late night cap then it will be on your own balcony. Breakfast is served downstairs and there is also champagne on offer although we didn't partake. I'm wishing now that we had started the day with a Mimosa!

The noisy fans on the terrace! It was like sitting behind a 747 although staff did turn them off on request. The 'whipped' butter at breakfast - maybe it was for American tastes though as most of the other guests seemed to be from the USA. Us Brits like salty, sold butter!

Gem of a hotel in the heart of Santiago

Location, beautifully situated and decorated, nice room size, amenities- everything was perfect


28 January 2024

Amazing location! Beautiful hotel!

Location was amazing! Staff was so nice and hotel was beautiful and clean

The included breakfast wasnt great but not bad either. Nothing that changed our experience about our stay.


27 January 2024

Marvelous hotel base in Santiago!

Exceptional architectural allure, incredibly delicious full breakfast, and the staff were very professional and hospitable.


25 January 2024

Great location, nice staff!

Very friendly and corteous staff, helpful in terms of recommendations and sightseeing. Nice room design and very convenient location in walking distance from main sights of Santiago

Lack of bathroom privacy was a bit of an issue for us. Our room felt a bit boxed up because of proximity of the hotel to another building


25 January 2024


Location, comfortable beds and large room, rooftop bar, incredible staff and service


23 January 2024

Hotel Magnolia an excellent choice in Lastarria

The location at Hotel Magnolia is excellent, really nice area, close to good restaurants, and anyone who loves good architecture and design will appreciate a stay here. Love the interplay of the old mansion with the new - the dramatic lighting, the metal staircases, the artwork. Our room was also really nice - super comfy bed, spacious, good bathroom, windows that opened out to the street so we could look down to the lane below. The rooftop bar area is a great space for lounging with a cocktail and a bite to eat as the sun goes down. The perfect stay in Lastarria

No complaints :-)


19 January 2024

Beautiful hidden GEM and I will definitely return!

Friendly and attentive staff


17 January 2024

Enjoyable first time in Santiago. We couldn’t expect anything better than Hotel Magnolia.

Very well designed. Our room was superb. Staff were very professional, welcoming and friendly. We highly recommend this hotel.

No issues.

Great for a romantic trip

Excellent welcome. The most amazing room with plenty of space. Breakfast was delicious and the breakfast room was unique. We used the rooftop bar for both a dinner and a drink before we left. It had a great view of Santa Lucia hill

There was no pool


16 January 2024

Perfect for a 24 hour stay in Santiago

Very friendly service, great location, lovely roof terrace and beautifully decorated.


14 January 2024

We loved it!

Beautiful property and exceptional staff- especially the reception staff and the outstanding concierge. Also very central location

Some items at the Terrace restaurant were not available but the food was generally very good.


13 January 2024

Perfect hotel!

Incredible location, service and facilities. The team were so welcoming, we had the most wonderful stay.


12 January 2024

Beautiful and well staffed boutique hotel, rough neighborhood

Outstanding staff. Very comfortable bed. Great interior design.

TV had poor resolution and jumpy screen. Neighborhood is historic but dicey with homeless, panhandlers, and street thieves.


10 January 2024

Excellent hotel in a great location.

We had a very nice stay at the Magnolia Hotel and we were not disappointed with what we found. The location is ideal for a short stay in Santiago with the park nearby..(avoid Mondays as closed and we were also unlucky the funicular to the zoo was closed). Reception staff were very helpful. We had arrived early in the day and they were able to have our room available ahead of the regular check in time. Food was good on the Terrace and with warm weather is a pleasant place to spend an evening. Breakfast was excellent. Room was spotless and quiet.

Our only disappointment was that we were surprised to find that if we wanted to pay in local Pesos a 19% ‘tax’ would apply. Also we had them arrange a car to take us to the airport at 8:30 and at 8:15 the maid was ‘demanding’ to clean our room. I can only assume she was seeking her ‘tip’ but did appear rude (and intimidating).


9 January 2024

Wonderful staff, stylish accommodation, perfect location!

Our flight was delayed and we got in really late, the staff kept the restaurant open past closing so we could eat! Everyone was so friendly and helpful.


7 January 2024

Gorgeous boutique hotel

Wonderfully designed boutique hotel with extremely helpful staff. The Pisco sours at the terrace were great. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The location is great, right across the street from Cerro Santa Lucia, and just a few blocks from Plaza de Armas. About a mile walk to Cerro San Cristobal. The neighborhood may not be the best at night, but the staff are always on the lookout for your well being!

Limited dinner options due to special menus for Dec 31 and Jan 1, but that was related to the days we were staying there. Usually, they do have a more extensive menu.
