10 August 2006 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were absolutely fantastic (particularly Pamela!!), and the facilities were great (though the lack of fans/ventilation in the bathrooms meant they got steamy quickly, hence the floor was a bit slippery at times). If I ever go back to Santiago, I'll be staying at La Chimba again.
