    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Quiet surroundings. Excellent location.The online promotion was the reason we booked with you

    The location is very good and staff is like professionals

    Regretfully the internet doesn´t work well couple of days and it was pity. This is important for us because we make all tiket reservations (flight, hotels, cars etc. by net. br. Pekka M.

    I have stayed in Fundador for 4 nights. The hotel is a little bit old, but it is clean and everything is working ok. The breakfast is good, the room is clean,

    The TV equipment could be better and the internet signal should be much better.The bathroom should be reshaped. The hotel is in downtown, so the neighboorhood is not so good later at night.

    The room, breakfast and staff were very friendly. It also has free internet access.

    The pool was tiny and the sauna didn´t work.

  • Couple

    Very clean, comfortable and central to the CBD. Value for money with a very modern look, very impressive.

    Hotel staff were a bit clueless when suggesting things to do and see in there city

  • Couple

    The most exciting is the location and the employees, they are all kind and helpfull.

    Our room was on the other building, so we needed to take two elevators. It is really bad...

    The staff attention!

    The bedrtoon does not receive the maintenence and modernization for a 4 star hotel.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    The staff were most helpful.

    This is not up to the standard of other Blue Tree hotels we've stayed in. The refurbishment of The Fundador was just an exercise in papering over cracks. We had to move room because on a 30+C day the air conditioning did not work. When we contacted reception and asked for it to be seen to, they just acknowledged that it didn't do anything but produce noise!

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    We had a very nicely decorated spacious room. We liked the room a lot.

    The airconditioning did not cool. It did make a lot of noise though. In order to simulate airco-effects, the staff had opened the windows while we were out.

  • Couple

    Great location. A few steps from the metro station. Preatty close to the main street - perfect for new year's celebration - and to the historical center. Big and nice room, clean. Good bathroom.

    Staff gave wrong information about a touristic event and some of them are not kind. The hotel is old and the tentative of rejuvenating didn`t work well, but it doesn't compromise the quality.

  • Couple
    5.8

    It's well located, within the city center. The breakfest is good and has bed and room size, as good toilet facilities.

    The air conditioned didn't work properly and was very noisy. We contacted the front-desk few times and the support guy went to our room - nothing worked, but the noise. Then we changed tto another room and the air-conditioned was still not working well. We heard other guest complaning about the same problem. And Santiago on summer is really hot. The hotel should consider reparing/changing all their air-conditioned system.

    Breakfast

    Noisy I would not stay again

  • Group of friends

    Computers in the lobby for checking Internet were free. From the location you can walk to several sights as well as find convenient stores and restaurants. They gave us a late checkout which was great because we could freshen up before heading to the airport.

    Room was very hot and we couldn't figure out the controls. (We also didn't ask for help.) Our friends had no problems with this.
