Santiago is the capital city of Chile and a is one of the gay-friendliest place in South America. We will find most of the accomodation to be suitable for gay couples in Gay Friendly Hotels Santiago de Chile.
The LGBT community in Chile has gained some rights in recent years. In 2012 it was approved the anti-discrimination law that includes sexual orientation and gender identity as protected categories. The law penalizes the arbitrary discrimination, allows citizens to file anti-discrimination lawsuits and requires the State to develop public policies to end discrimination.
Currently in Chile there are different laws, regulations and public policies that protect LGBT people from discrimination such as protections in access to employment, housing, in the provision of goods and services and blood donations. Also anti-discrimination protection in public and private schools as well as an anti-bullying law that has a positive impact on the fight against homophobia in the classroom.
Santiago, Chile’s capital and largest city, sits in a valley surrounded by the snow-capped Andes and the Chilean Coast Range. Plaza de Armas, the grand heart of the city’s old colonial core, is home to 2 neoclassical landmarks: the 1808 Palacio de la Real Audiencia, housing the National History Museum, and the 18th-century Metropolitan Cathedral. La Chascona is the home-turned-museum of poet Pablo Neruda.

The Aubrey an Australian/English owned and operated small friendly boutique hotel which opened in 2010, is situated in bohemian, artsy Bellavista neighbourhood, Providencia. Situated next to the Park Metropolitan and is the first true boutique hotel in Santiago, The hotel comprises of 2 lovingly restored old mansions which have been completely modernized while retaining many original features, and furnished with a fusion of contemporary and antique styles.
The hotel has a new contemporary built pavilion wing, an outdoor heated jacuzzi swimming pool with sundeck, a relaxing lounge bar with indoor/outdoor terrace seating , serving cocktails, wines and tapas, Monday to Saturday with live pianist every Friday.
A tranquil oasis in the middle of a buzzing Bellavista neighbourhood, this hotel is luxury boutique hotel perfection. Set in a beautifully restored and massive Tudor-style mansion, originally built in 1927 for a high-profile politician, the hotel decor mixes old with new and each of the 15 rooms are uniquely and exquisitely designed – think cozy chic. The intimate pool offers great views of the city and the hotel is steps away from so much, its seriously one of those “diamonds in the rough” kind of places I have been fortunate to find throughout my travels.
The staff were great, the breakfast was included for us given the rate and was just perfect and its literally walking distance to so much.
But be careful with the rooms, as they are all different in this converted house. Some are quite funky – our room 6 has strange ceiling angles, a creaky old bed, soft mattress, and a dangerously slippery shower floor. To their credit, the manager came up to hear our comments and agreed to address the shower. Staff are courteous and helpful, especially online before we booked. Food is good. Nice pool. Very good location in funky Bellavista neighborhood, near many restaurants.
My partner and I stayed at The Aubrey twice during our trip to Chile: first for four nights upon our arrival in Santiago and again one night before our return to the States. It served as a quiet respite and relaxing retreat during our trip. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with plush bedding, modern bathrooms and complimentary bottled water.
The staff is extremely attentive and helpful, and the gated entrance and parking provided security and peace of mind. We enjoyed the luxury hotel amenities, which included the pool, drinks at the piano bar, and most of all the lovely breakfast every morning with eggs cooked to order and amazing espresso coffee beverages with excellent service.
The Aubrey is the absolute best hotel and has completely spoiled us for other hotels. Located in the Bellavista neighbourhood at the foot of the Cerro San Cristobal it is an oasis after a busy day of walking to the sights…lovely gardens and fabulous pool. Our room was spacious with lots of storage and a large modern bathroom with a comfortable king size bed. The buffet breakfast offers something for everyone and a gorgeous tea with luscious pastries is available in the afternoon. The piano bar is staffed by a couple of excellent bartenders and is situated in the garden tucked away under huge trees.
Located in the vibrant Bella Vista neighbourhood of Santiago at the base of Cerro San Cristobel, this beautifully restored 1920’s house reopened as a boutique hotel in 2010 after falling into disrepair. Australian Mark Cigana rescued this historic house and lovingly restored it over three years preserving its external and internal character, including its parquet flooring in the expansive breakfast room where you could find Mark most mornings.
Bella Vista is one of Santiago’s best cultural, restaurant, pub and cafe districts… the hotel is just up the road from the Nerudu Museum; a ten minute walk to the Parque Forestal and Museo Bella Artes; minutes walking to a myriad of fantastic restaurants (we recommend Peumayen and Commo Agua Para Chocolate); and across the road from the San Cristobal Hill funicular and Stop 4 of the Santiago “Hop-on/Hop-off” bus which opens up the whole city to explore every 30 minutes. Great location.
The hotel is full of character with amazing rich woodwork and artworks, and lots of “chilling out” reading nooks in the multi-level house, together with a large and sunny breakfast room where we enjoyed a tasty and satisfying full breakfast each morning, as well as afternoon tea if we were “in the house”. Beyond this, was the peaceful and quiet oasis of the gorgeous cobbled patio and terraced gardens which Mark rebuilt after discovering it under the out of control overgrowth, as well as the terraced heated swimming pool nestled into the hill above this. It was great space to come back to at the end of each hectic day to enjoy a cold beer, wine or cocktail after discovering the best of Santiago or the vineyards and wines of the Casablanca wine area.
The hotel has 15 rooms… our spacious and light filled room (#12) was in the newer section of the hotel, it was tastefully decorated and had a shower which opened into a protected private courtyard with an outdoor spa.
As with truly great hotels, we had amazing service from personally engaging, interesting and responsive staff from reception, to the breakfast room, the terrace and the piano bar at night. Nothing was too much and delivered with enthusiasm and a smile.
The Aubrey boutique hotel was a great experience and great value, and certainly made our stay in Santiago most memorable… highly recommended.

The building is a cultural jewel in the heart of the gastronomic Lastarria neighbourhood of Santiago, originally designed by the architect Luciano Kulczewski in the 1920s. At the time, it was the tallest building in Chile, the first with a lift and central heating. The glamour and elegance of the 1920s is showcased in the architecture and design, accompanied by the highest levels of comfort and technology you will find at the best international hotels.
We stayed here as our base in Santiago and loved it. It’s a very sexy boutique hotel with the oldest elevator in the city. The tiling and art deco style is very cool.
They welcomed us as a gay couple and have gay staff who gave us some great tips about places to eat and the nightlife.
It’s in the cool Lastarria neighbourhood and minutes walk from the gay bars and discos in Bellavista neighbourhood.
Also has a really cool rooftop with pool which is sunset facing.
Definitely recommend it.
It’s the only hotel in Lastarria where the best restaurants are located. It’s easy walking distance to Pablo Neruda’s house in Bellavista and the San Cristobal funicular railway and its viewpoint. In the other direction it’s only a short walk to Museo de Bellas Artes.
The breakfast was top quality served on the seventh floor terrace. Our room was quiet clean and comfortable. Excellent shower.
Loved this place – the 1920s architecture and design of the building is wonderful, particularly the various original tiled floors and the gated lift. It provides an insight into how human-centred architecture and design can work. The rooftop bar was a wonderful place to sit at sunset and watch the fading light over the city.
We had excellent service from the front desk, at breakfast and on the rooftop. It’s a great location in easy walking distance of the many interesting areas of Santiago. Would definitely stay here again. And a plus point was learning all about the architect Luciano Kulczewski, after whom the hotel is named – this place is a living tribute to his vision and work.
The rooms were reasonable size – we had a massive bathroom – old pedestal bath – which was a little difficult getting in and out of. Nicely appointed rooms. The staff/ reception were all very helpful – spoke english – the best part of this hotel is the rooftop bar and dining. Great views of surrounding downtown Santiago.
The suite and other rooms have fresh flowers in and a daily gift of chocolates. Amazing internal atrium with hanging lanterns. The rooftop restaurant and bar has a plunge pool and serves good cocktails, an innovative modern menu and excellent wines. Not really surprising as it is surrounded by wine growing areas (do a tour with tasting). Free pisco sours but try the mango pisco, very nice indeed.
Also within easy walking distance of the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, shopping areas, squares and cafes and restaurants. Breakfast is fun, served in the downstairs art deco style area. You an also get an early breakfast.

This hotel is little but the people who run it make you feel warm and like home.
Is close to everything, in the middle of Providencia, the rooms are quite large, but they’re also small ones. and renovated.
The breakfast is phenomenal in my opinion, a nice buffet of different assortments on different days. The restaurant downstairs opened during the day was great too. Yummy pizza, huge salads, and great drink specials. I think we grabbed a drink here almost every day.
. Our room was very nicely equipped and huge with lots of windows. Bathroom was wonderful. The free breakfast was good. The hotel is in a great area of town and there are some truly super restaurants within blocks. If you don’t know Santiago, the town has a terrific subway system- one of the cleanest and fastest I have ever used. There is a stop just a block or two from the hotel so it makes it easy to get to other parts of town.
Interesting to compare Providencia with Las Condes on our first visit to Santiago. Providencia has more going on but for us was harder to drive to. Las Condes is newer, business area with easier driving but restaurants geared towards business lunch. Metro is great option for getting to Providencia.

Nice hotel that is very in line with the W brand. Room was nice and comfortable and beds were cozy. Used my platinum gift for breakfast everyday at the restaurant which was delicious and a nice space. The rooftop is the best part – a beautiful view and heated pool. The location was nice – close to metro and lots of restaurants around in the modern business district.
The hotel is located in Las Condes, an upscale neighborhood that is home to lots of restaurants, offices and a huge shopping mall. The taxi from the airport cost us 24000 Chilean Pesos (~36 USD). To go downtown it takes about half an hour by Metro, but we only did that once to see the main landmarks. On other days we booked trips to wineries around Santiago – The Wine & Bike is highly recommendable.
We stayed in a “Spectacular” room with a balcony. It was large and featured (almost) all the amenities you’d expect from a 5-star hotel. I have to admit I missed a kettle/coffee maker, but they do offer free coffee in the lounge every morning. The bed was very comfy and we appreciated the large desk/working area. It was great to have a choice between a walk-in shower and bathtub as well.
The balcony never got much sunlight so we barely used it, but the chaise lounge next to the window was a great spot to take in the city views. The fact that a lot of the furniture is black means that scratches and dents are easy to spot, so parts of the room looked a little worn.
The W offers several restaurants and bars, some of which seem to have an excellent reputation with locals.
Our room was on the top floor (11th) of the hotel and was a Marvelous Suite. We had a great view of the city and a slightly tangential view of the Andes. As I understand it, this is the highest class of room that is available in the upgrade program although there are 2 classes available for purchase above it (the WOW and eWOW suites). My first thought on entering was holy cow! The place is huge. There is a massive dining table off to one side, a huge living room that includes a small wet bar a (with a one half guest bath) and then a very large bedroom. The floor plan is very open.
As you step into the bedroom space there is a very nice desk area which is segmented from the remainder of the bedroom by a fixed divider. Decor is very modern with lots of mirrors and fixtures that fit the motif. There are two very large, very nice TV’s, one in the bedroom and one in the living room, but almost no channels in English (other than CNN international of which I quickly grew profoundly weary). As can usually be expected in a W, the bed was very comfortable and the toiletries were top notch (Bliss products and lots of them. Not just the usual soap, shampoo and body wash. There was also body lotion, a razor, face cleaning pads, toothpaste and toothbrush, etc.). The linens and robes were all also the exceptional quality that you can be assured of in a W. I loved the room except for the fact that there is really not a distinct bathroom.
The public areas of the hotel are nicely appointed. There is a large bar area/lounge that is very comfortable. They have their own version of a local drink favorite, the Pisco, called a W Pisco. Be sure to try one. There is a rooftop bar and pool as well with incredible views. Don’t miss those either. There are two main restaurants, Osaka and NoSo. NoSo service and food was excellent.
Never could get into Osaka and it didn’t seem to bother the folks taking the reservations. I had seen a lot of positive reviews of breakfast at NoSo so made sure to try it one day. It was good but not great. There was a large selection of breads, fresh squeezed fruit juices, a made to order station and the fresh fruit was excellent.
All in all a great city to visit and a great property to stay at while here.

Prices start 299 $/night for Wonderful Room. The WOW Suite is 999$/room per night with breakfast included – if coming on a honeymoon this is the perfect choice for gay couples.

Hotel is in a great location for access to museums, the main avenue along the river and several interesting neighborhoods. Staff were friendly and helpful. Unlike one reviewer, we experienced great English support for our miserable Spanish skills . There was an English-fluent gentleman at the front desk and the guy who managed the dining room spoke some English as well.
Decor is a bit funky but the room was functional and clean. We walked everywhere from the hotel and loved the central location.
Excellent location to visit almost everything on foot. Our room was very good. 1 king size bed and 1 single bed on the six floor. We had reserved an executive double room. Perfect. Our Room #609 was updated, clean, overlooking the street, and they had complimentary water, cookies and coffee supplies in the room as a welcome on first day. Breakfast s excellent, 2 sorts of ham, cold cuts, cheeses, homemade yogurt, cereals, different sorts of breads, juices, fruits, butter, etc.
There are many restaurants to walk to and if you need to go far, taxis are available also buses. The 2 pedestrians streets, Huerfanos and Ahumada, with so many stores, drugstores, shopping malls, restaurants, banks, you name it, are 5 minutes walk from hotel.
The room was large & the beds comfortable. The WIFI was perfect, the breakfasts were excellent and the dining room adequate – at least it was when we ate before 8am.
The hotel is so central that all of Santiago’s sights are reachable on foot – we even walked to San Christobel which took over an hour.
Plaza De Armas is 15 minute walk and La Moneda 10 minutes.
The hotel is is a great location for folks visiting Santiago and wanting to be near the main sights. It is a budget hotel and not that fancy but the location makes up for that.
Our room was quite large, with a king sized bed and also a single bed ( handy for laying stuff out on! There were bedside tables, 1 comfy chair, a desk, stereo, v large flat screen tv, small fridge, coffee machine with coffee capsules, free water and biscuits,luggage rack, AC , radiator and a safety box in the wardrobe.
