Stylish décor, a rooftop swimming pool and one of the best meals I’ve eaten in a while – The Singular really knows how to make a guest feel welcome. I loved the ‘coffee house’ style lounge and bar where check-in took place. On the top floor was a large terrace and cool bar area, along with the rooftop pool. With great views of Santiago’s iconic hills Mount Santa Lucia and Mount San Cristobal, it was the perfect spot for a daytime pool session, or an evening cocktail.
Budget friendly and centrally located, Su Merced Hotel is a great option for a stay in Santiago, Chile.
It was an emotional day. I was coming to the end of my adventures in Chile. Just one night remained… and here I was checking into Su Merced – a boutique hotel in the centre of Santiago.
I stumbled across the hotel during an intense hotel research session. It had great reviews. Sitting just outside the top 10 of ALL the hotels in Santiago on Trip Advisor, it seemed to have won people over. Guests were returning time and time again and I just had to find out why.
Located in Lastarria, moments from The Singular (a wonderful hotel I stayed in just a week or so before), the area is perfect for a few days exploring the city. In amongst the grand historic buildings, cool cafes, and lush parks, it’s a great spot, and architecturally – the hotel had been an exciting project.

Arriving at The Singular Hotel is a bit like going to visit one of your oldest friends. They welcome you with open arms, ask how your journey was, and leave you to relax on a comfy sofa while they fetch you drinks and treats. It sounds strange to say it, but I felt like I’d been here before.
The Colchagua Valley in Chile is lush, green, and all about wine!
When I arrived, I really felt like I’d found my ‘happy place’!
Often overlooked by travellers who visit the country for adventurous trips around Patagonia and the Atacama Desert… it’s definitely worth a trip, especially if you’re partial to a glass of carmenere or sauvignon blanc.
While you could take a day trip from Santiago (it’s around three hours by bus), we chose to base ourselves in Santa Cruz for a few days. It’s a small town, so don’t expect a lot of entertainment or dining options, but it was a welcome rest after the hustle and bustle of city life.
