The outside of the house is a bit strange but it's quite nice in the inside. Marilu has clear definitions about everything in this b&b which should be respected. Overall she is good prepared for all kind of questions. The room with own bathroom had average size, both were very clean. Ac isn't available but a fan. As it's in...

After a long trip I needed a quiet place to stay at and get some rest. Marilu's turned out to be ideal for that. It is a basic hostel with very helpful owner who will serve you a great breakfast . The neighborhood is quiet and safe. I also had a logistical problem hiring a big truck for my expedition...

Definitely recommended!!! We were looking for a nice and warm place to finish our traveling in Chile and Bolivia and we found this amazing B&B in Providencia. The neighborhood is one of the best one to stay in Santiago, metro is close and just one stop from Bellavista. The ladies is super nice, she is very helpful in organizing your...

We stayed here for 2 nights in the middle of the winter in july 2016. Maria (Luz) was super nice and she is the only one working there. No cleaning staff, cooks or anything else. She does everything herself so it is super safe and reliable. The place was ok. The building is as old as the sea, so it...

This Bed and Breakfast is in a wonderful, safe location that is only a 5-minute walk from the nearest metro station. Marilu is extremely knowledgable about Santiago and the surrounding area. She helped me figure out what to do and how to get there with such detail that I didn't have to look elsewhere for advice. Her B&B is very...

I've stayed with Marilu a few times and I keep going back. The rooms are comfortable without being luxurious and it's in an area of Santiago close to restaurants. Marilu is very helpful. She speaks English, which can be useful for guests who don't speak Spanish.

The place is not a house, but a single first floor apartment that has been adapted for bed and breakfast. To access our room we had to go across the kitchen, and reach the back patio. The kitchen always in bad state of cleanliness, and the patio converted into a dumping area. The social section needs maintenance. There is a...

i stayed here early March for 3 nights. Marilu is a classic, she runs the place by herself, and seems to stay there the whole time (seems she sleeps in a back room). Which makes this an incredibly safe place to stay, since there are no part-time staff coming and going, which you can't really trust, and she watches everything....

Marilu's is everything a bed and breakfast should be. It is located on a quiet street in Barrio Providencia within walking distance of the Salvador Metro Stop, entertainment and art venues like the Theater Nescafe and the GAM. Rates are affordable and the accommodations and service by the proprietor Marilu are top notch. Marilu is a font of knowledge about...

“Marilu has 5(?) rooms. I stayed in the two private rooms that opens to the back terrace, A3 and A4 - both were OK - A3 was better. (A4 doesn't have window). From what I saw of the others - the private one /double that has a window to the front street is the nicest and largest one.”
