Located in a historic Beaux Arts mansion in the bohemian Bellavista neighborhood, this chic boutique hotel outclasses just about every other place in town and helped put Santiago on the global style map when it opened in 2009. Chile has never been known for its personal service or fashionable muster, and so it took the two foreigners (from Australia and England) who opened the Aubrey to show them how it's done. It's been a huge hit and the leader of the boutique hotel pack ever since. Rooms here are generally large and impeccable. The staff is very charming and discreetly accommodating. Hanging next to stylish fellow travelers by the Romanesque outdoor pool, you'll feel like you’ve stepped over to Lago di Como.
