Most accommodation along the Carretera Austral will be in the lodge style. This is to say a construction of natural wood on the exterior and interior with soft, warm lighting, open fireplaces; and natural, woven materials often as part of the interior decoration. However, the level of lodge will vary between the very rustic, simple level right up to the top-end luxury level with those considered “in between” too. As well as lodges there are, in the main cities, the more traditional hotel-style options.

Here at Experience Chile, we make it part of our business to know as many accommodation options as possible at a personal level.

We do not, and cannot, rely on what is published on the internet (and nor should you) because every hotel, lodge and bed and breakfast feels that they are “the best”, which often, is just not the case.

We discover what a place is really like with regular inspection visits, ideally staying overnight in order to get as good idea as possible about the overall feeling that our clients may experience should they stay at that particular place.

We have categorised the accommodation options in a way that we feel best defines each hotel, as well as stipulate if the property has been “inspected” and / or “approved” by us. If a hotel has not been inspected, it means only that. If a place has not received our “approved” label it just means that we do not feel we cannot “overly recommend” that place, but it may be perfectly good.

NOTE: You may well have a particular hotel, or lodge, that is not shown in our listings. If this is the case, PLEASE tell us what and where this hotel is, and we will include it in your itinerary.

Good Level Hotels

We define a “good level” hotel as being a place that does not merit, yet, being in the luxury nor “top, or high end” level of accommodation. Good level means a perfectly decent, comfortable hotel.

Mid Level Hotels

Our “mid level” category is a hotel that could be better, but is not bad either. Usually these properties are “practical” more than providing any particular characteristic that would push it into a higher category. Therefore it is in-between good and “could be better” ie “mid level”, but nevertheless will provide acceptable accommodation.
