Hotel in excellent location

Posted Jan 13, 2014
Pros: Definitely the location and the friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: In some parts it is showing its age, for example, the bathroom, but everything worked well.
Location: Many restaurants and cafes, plus a Starbucks around the corner. The Metro is close, as is the just reopened spectacular pre-Columbian art museum.
I chose the hotel for its location in the historical center of Santiago where museums and interesting sites are easily walkable. The hotel is decent and comfortable, but don't expect luxury. It is very good value for the money. It has a tasty breakfast included in the price. The room was comfortable and kept very clean. There is free internet in the rooms, and computers for guests to use for free on some of the floors. I noticed that there were several tour groups that stayed there during my stay - that is usually a good indication that the hotel is good value. I don't speak much Spanish, but that was not a problem. Some of the very helpful staff know English. I was happy with my choice.

Hotel Panamericano

Posted Mar 19, 2013
The location of this hotel was very good. It was nice and close to the city centre so easy to get around. It is a little older and so not so flash but it was clean and the staff were efficient. The breakfast was substantial as was the restaurant meal at night. Tea and coffee facilities in the room would be a good idea as many travelers don't want to have to ring room service to get a cup of tea, especially if they don't speak the local language very well.

Staying in Downtown Santiago

Posted Mar 1, 2013
Pros: In the heart of old Santiago.
Cons: Not having towels when we needed themj.
Location: It is right near Constitution Square and buinesses.
It is in the old city and has lots of interesting sites. Stores and restaurants were right there as was the Hop on Hop off Bus stop for us tourists. The one weird thing was when we were at breakfast, they took all the towels. You didn't have any towels until they washed them and brought them back later in the day. We didn't like that! Would have liked a pool, but price was great.

Pros: spaciousness of the room and reliable WiFi
Cons: breakfast—but it was fine
Location: right in the heart of downtown Santiago
From the patience of the helpful staff with my non-fluent Spanish to the reliability of the WiFi and spaciousness of the room (single King bed), I have nothing but praise for the Panamericano. The desk clerks were always ready to point me in the right direction with a smile, and when I could only log onto the WiFi with one device (iPhone), the tech guy solved the problem within a few minutes so that I could connect with my iPad and MacBook Air as well. The breakfast was adequate—no complaints but no raves, either. note: Despite the reports of several websites, the outlets were not those found in France and Germany but the straight line of three holes found in Italy. The adaptor I bought for France/Germany worked fine, but some French fellow travelers had problems: the prongs on their plugs were spaced correctly but were too thick to fit in the outlets.

Perfect location, you can walk to metro, Red Bus Stop in Plaza d'Armas, Santa Lucia Park. A lot of places to eat.Any shift at the front desk was 1 person who speaks English.The price on Expedia is right for downtown location with breakfast, not posh -but nice.

Great Location

Posted Jul 30, 2012
The hotel has an excellent location for sightseeing in the old city and is also fairly close to the airport. We just had breakfast in the hotel restaurant, which was about average for a three-star buffet.

Fine hotel, fine location.

Posted Apr 12, 2011
Totally pleased with the Panamericano -- staff were excellent beginning with the very early 530 am check in I had all the way to the check out where they helped with language skills. Sparkling clean, well appointed public rooms; beautiful private room with all the extras -- and a very fair price. Great location, too -- walk to all the great historic and government bldgs. in downtown Santiago. I'll stay here again, happily.

Good stay for the price

Panamericano has all services a regular hotel from the same category would have (good breakfast, phone, mini bar, TV, safe, etc). They have room for improvement on their computers. Although they have internet access there is no printer to have a hardcopy of reservations to the places you will visit or maps. Also the computers do not allow the connection of USB peripherals like digital cameras (useful when your memory card is full and you have to move your pictures to a pen drive).
