Hostal Río Amazonas - Plaza Italia Reviews


‘B&B Plaza Italia’ has three floors with stain-glass windows, elegant European parquet flooring and molded plaster ceilings. The building is fully restored, with an interior garden and the rooms have private bathrooms with hot water available 24 hours a day, all this facilities in a family and friendly atmosphere.

We meet in the centre of the great events and national celebrations. It is surrounded by parks, many shops and easy transportation. Plaza Baquedano (usually called Plaza Italia) is an important spot to key on: here the Alameda (O'Higgins Avenue) becomes Av. Providencia, and here the Pio Nono Bridge crosses the river to the north, providing access to Bellavista. Overlooking Bellavista is the enormous San Cristobal Hill, which rises dramatically from the plain to the north of Av. Providencia, which leads eastward toward the comunas of Providencia, Las Condes, Vitacura and Lo Barnechea. Av. Vicuña Mackenna leads southeast toward increasingly fashionable Ñuñoa.

As the best choice in accommodation of its category, we offer comfortable rooms with TV, En-suite rooms, and hot water 24 hours a day. Continental breakfast is included in the price.

Location and Contact


Santiago Airport (IATA: SCL) (ICAO: SCEL) is the main gateway for travelers around the world, and is served by many airlines from all three major airline alliances. Private taxis will charge about $10,000 (less than USD$20) for a trip to downtown or Providencia. Tour-bus is a nice alternative, you will find them in a kiosk in the center of the baggage claim in the airport, they charge $7 USD for door-to-door shuttle service, or $3 USD, for a bus to the Tour-Bus station, which connects directly to the Metro. Another alternative are the Centropuerto buses, which connect you with the Metro Line 1 (red line) and charge about $2 USD.

By car:
Entering Santiago by car, you will probably find yourself on the Autopista Central. To use this freeway you need a "TAG", which you can buy from service stations. One day passes are Ch$3500. With a bit of planning and consulting your map before you head into the capital, you can avoid using the freeway altogether. This is best done by not entering from Ruta 5.

By bus:
There are bus connections to all major destinations on the continent.
From Mendoza in Argentina it is a beautiful eight hour bus ride crossing the Andes. The border crossing is at about 3200m. Be aware that it is not allowed to bring fruit, vegetables or animal products into Chile, and all luggages will get checked at the border.

The nearest metro station is Baquedano, to 2 blocks of our B&B.
