Barrio Bellavista is a sector of the city of Santiago, Chile, located between the northern bank of Mapocho River and San Cristobal Hill, with the street Pio Nono as a vertebral column that divides the neighborhood of Recoleta on the west and the neighborhood of Providencia on the east. This neighborhood, which includes the zone of La Vega Central, was known as “La Chimba”, a name of Quechuan origin which means “the other band”. This is the name given to the neighborhood that is just on the other side of the Mapocho river. In the beginning it was a zone inhabited by an important part of the working population. Here there were several indigenous settlements dedicated to servitude and others to artisan crafts, while today there is a mix of popular bars, cultural centers, and international fine dining.
My family of 5 stayed 2 nights at Cristian's Bellavista home. We enjoyed the friendliness of his resident manager Paco who was very kind and made us nice breakfasts each morning and was very helpful. The cost and proximity to tourist sights such as Pablo Naruda's house and restaurants made it an ideal location. I felt things could have been cleaner. Bedspreads, rugs, and towels were in need of replacement and simple things like emptying the garbage and replacing hand towels daily should be considered essential. Cristian was very helpful in giving us directions to areas of interest and allowed us to store our luggage on the day of departure until we picked up our rental car.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Cristian's place for a month and it was a really good experience. Both Cristian and Alex are very welcoming, helpful and friendly, and will give you loads of advice about what to see and do Santiago and in the rest of Chile. I highly recommend it!
Cristians B&B has large rooms as it is in the old colonial one storey buildings right in the heart of the city, from where you can reach any interesting sights walking. The room was clean, but as it was the one facing the street, a bit loud with the traffic on weekdays early in the morning. There is a very nice kitchen, where you prepare breakfast yourself. There is a beautiful gardenlike patio in the center, where you can eat, meet other guests and relax. And, of course, you are amidst very fine art!
