Review

Regarded as one of Santiago’s favourite hotels, this French-decor inspired property is located in the friendly Providencia neighbourhood. What Le Reve lacks in facilities - such as a bar, restaurant, pool/spa – it more than makes up for with outstanding service and quirky extras, like the honesty bar and late-night kitchen snacks. With so many restaurants within walking distance, who needs private dining. That said, we feel there are similar properties in Santiago that offer more in the way of facilities.

Location

Le Reve is on a quiet side-street in the Providencia district of Santiago, consisting mostly of residential and business properties. The area is well known for good restaurants and is only 1 block from Pedro de Valdivia metro station on Line 1 of Santiago’s metro system. The Costanera Center, including a six-floor shopping mall, is only 800 metres away. The hotel also has easy access to the main road to the international airport, resulting in short transfer times.

Layout

The hotel consists of 31 rooms, of which 24 are standard rooms that offer both king and twin bed formation. There are 2 Executive Suites that offer additional living areas as well as being the only room type to provide a bathtub, in addition to a shower. Families and friends may wish to book either the two balcony rooms or the two terrace rooms, as the outdoor space is semi-private with the neighbouring room type. Furthermore, both room pairs (which can also be booked individually rather than as a pair) have a joint internal “porch area” with shared private door access to the hallway. Four of the ground floor standard rooms have direct access into the hotel’s enclosed garden terrace. Lastly, there is 1 Junior Suite on the top floor that contains two queen beds. All rooms include a mini-bar, safe and flat-screen TV, air-con/heating and Wi-Fi; with a supplementary laundry service available.

Rooms

The reception, lobby and lounge/breakfast area are all located on the ground floor. Le Reve’s garden terrace is accessed via the lounge, where comfy chairs and the honesty bar can be found. The lounge can also be used to take breakfast, when the weather doesn’t allow for al fresco breakfast in the garden. The three floors above can all be accessed by either stairs or the elevator.

Facilities

The enclosed garden is the jewel in Le Reve’s crown. Whilst there may not be a lawn, it truly is an oasis of calm in a bustling city. Le Reve also provide an evening honesty bar, whereby guests can help themselves to drinks and simply note down what is consumed, to be added to the room bill. Another thoughtful touch is the complimentary “midnight snacks”, from their kitchen; such as nuts, cookies, fruit etc. Fortunately, you don’t need to wait until midnight – the kitchen is open from 8pm – 1am!

Tranquil garden terrace; Midnight snacks!

Absence of a pool, full service bar and evening dining
