When visiting Santiago on a family holiday, you want somewhere central, easy to get to and with plenty to do for restless youngsters and (perhaps less restless) parents.
The big hotel chains, Ritz-Carlton and Grand Hyatt are good options. Or, if you prefer something smaller, then boutique hotel Le Reve may be just the place for you. The latter is on Orrego Luco, a road in Barrio Providencia which is lined with restaurants and bars.
Whilst grown-up kids can go off for nachos or tapas, there are smart restaurants like El Jardin de Epicuro which has outdoor seating right across the road from Le Reve, where you can enjoy a delicious Pisco Sour.
Another good family option is The Aubrey down in Barrio Bellavista. Right next to San Cristobal Hill, you can take young kids to the zoo before taking the funicular up for a panoramic view over the city. Bellavista also has plenty of restaurants and bars, and is in easy reach of Downtown, the historic center.
