This small hotel built on stilts (palafitos) in the fjord is a charming little hotel. The room was surprisingly modern, with a very nice bath and shower. There is a small cafe on the top floor that serves drinks and a few sandwiches. Breakfast is served in the first floor communal dining area and was quite adequate. There are two...

Great views, nice breakfast, kind staff and a wonderful room. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom good and we had a fantastic view (room 10). We enjoyed chatting with other guests over breakfast. The only thing we missed was the lounge. It was not open when we stayed there and we would have liked to have a drink and watch...

My room #6 faced the street. Other than the six dogs that regularly met each evening around 8-9 pm for a barking section the room was quiet. Located on the water this hotel is a traditional stilt house - just what Castro is famous for. My room with a double bed plus single bed was nicely decorated with handmade bed...

Loved staying in this row of Palafito houses on the river. Wooden features throughout. Crisp white bed linen, lots of hot water, v clean. Great views from communal breakfast room and roof terrace looking out over the tidal river estuary. Great breakfast with fresh baked bread and conserves packed with fruit plus fresh fruit salad. Traffic noise in our roadside...

Palafito 1326 as it is called is located in Casto on the Island of Chiloe, is a great centralized location to enjoy all that the big Island has to offer. The rooms are simple but do not lack in modern day creature comforts. Quality and clean linens, blankets and hot showers are abundant. There are no TV's in the rooms...

On the water, among many traditional palafitos. We had a charming room overlooking the water. There are less expensive rooms facing the street. The decor is lovely -- many handwoven textiles in natural colors of wool. The staff was gracious and wonderfully helpful. Good breakfast included in room rate.

This place has been very sympathetically restored. The rooms are not ornate but very comfortable and all rooms have a view over the water. The lounge and dining area are comfortable and warm, the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and the view was superb. We ate breakfast watching dolphins and sea birds, it was a great experience.

We stayed three nights at Palafito 1326 in a lovely room overlooking the tidal area. The room was simple, but the decor was unique with handwoven wool throws and covered pillows. Breakfast was shared at a large common table with many choices, both hot and cold. We were so tired from all of our hiking that two evenings we just...

We reserved through Booking.com and go confirmation as usual. During our staying in the country the local fishermen of Chiloe had serious problems with the fishing prohibited for a period so they had no income and received no help at first from the government. For is reason they blocked the island and you could only get there by plane. Coming...
