General Policies


Disabled Guests: Santiago is partially equipped for the needs of its disabled guests.  We have lifts and wide doors to most rooms. We have one Deluxe King Bedroom 101 designed for wheelchair user and less able guests.

Pets: We cannot accept pets (except for guide-dogs).

Cancellation: rooms cancelled later than 18h00 two days prior to arrival will be subject to a cancellation fee equivalent to one night's accommodation. For no-shows guests will be charged to the credit or debit card given at the time of booking for the first nights accommodation.

Tours and transfers cancelled after 48h prior the booked hour will be subject to a cancellation policie and the amount will be charged to the credit or debit card. 

Check in/check out: guests may check in after 15h00 on the day of arrival. Check out is before 12h00 on the day of departure. Failure to do so will entitle the Hotel to charge for an additional night. Charges will be at the Hotel’s current room rates which are available on request.  Price lists for additional items, such as meals and Room Service, are on display and available on request. Guests must pay all outstanding charges on departure. If an outstanding balance is not settled, payment will be taken with the card used to pay for the room.

For any guests wishing to leave early, the rest of the stay will still be charged as per the cancellation policy and no refund will be offered. 

It is possible to receive early check-in, however it is advisable to request it directly to the hotel before the stay. It is also possible to do early check-out, that must be informed to the receptionist during the stay of the clients. These services may have a fee to be applied, depending on each situation. The hotel has a luggage storage available for all the clients that do late check-out, which is free of charge.

If we are unable to pre-authorise the card for any reason we may take full payment from the card up to 48 HOURS prior to arrival or contact you for alternative card details.
