Hostal Rio Amazonas-Plaza Italia’, is a beautiful Tudor style stately home. It has constructed in 1929 and was awarded an Architectural National Prize.
We are the first hostal in Santiago which obtained in 2009 the tourist quality certification in the highest category "turista superior" according to the chilean norm.
‘Hostal Plaza Italia’ has three floors with stain-glass windows, elegant European parquet flooring and molded plaster ceilings. The building is fully restored, with an interior patio and the rooms have private bathrooms with hot water available 24 hours a day, all this facilities in a family and friendly atmosphere.
We meet in the centre of the great events and national celebrations. It is surrounded by parks, many shops and easy transportation. Plaza Italia is an important spot to key on: here the Alameda (O'Higgins Avenue) becomes Av. Providencia, and here the Pio Nono Bridge crosses the river to the north, providing access to Bellavista. Overlooking Bellavista is the enormous San Cristobal Hill, which rises dramatically from the plain to the north of Av. Providencia, which leads eastward toward the comunas of Providencia, Las Condes, Vitacura and Lo Barnechea. Av. Vicuña Mackenna leads southeast toward increasingly fashionable Ñuñoa.
