The family owned Meridiano Sur Petit Hotel is an exceptionally good value hotel, located right in the centre of the lively district of Providencia. The converted townhouse consists of tastefully decorated common areas and a handful of unfussy, compact rooms arranged over several floors and joined by narrow staircases. For families wishing to stay together, the family room features semi-separated rooms and can sleep up to four people. What the hotel may lack in space it certainly makes up for in style, with the welcoming staff tie offering a highly personalised, warm service impossible to achieve in a larger hotel. Although there is not a full restaurant service, the breakfasts included here are delicious and can be enjoyed in the attractive leafy courtyard as you make a leisurely start to your day. The Meridiano is ideally located for Santiago attractions; as an area popular with expats, it features some of the best dining options in the city.
