This classic hotel in the heart of Punta Arenas gives you peaceful repose from this Chilean capital. One of the largest and oldest buildings of the city, Hotel Cabo de Hornos has an interior that bridges modern living with rustic Patagonian culture. Whether you’re visiting Punta Arenas for discovery or adventure, or both, this long standing hotel can cater above and beyond your needs. With 110 bedrooms, a restaurant serving fine local cuisine, and renowned Chilean wine served by a roaring fireplace, Hotel Cabo de Hornos offers you true local luxury in the southernmost city in the world.
Reaching over half of the continent, Chile offers a vast array of places and climates. Punta Arenas, the capital of the Magallanes and the Chilean Antarctica region, meets city culture with vast landscape, all under a cooler climate than its Spanish and Croatian roots. Architecturally historic, Hotel Cabo de Hornos stands at the northern point of the Plaza Muñoz Gamero, the city’s cultural centre filled with illustrious conifer trees and historic monuments, and encircled by mansions. Yet despite its metropolitan location, Hotel Cabo de Hornos’ serene view of the magnificent Magellan Straits will allow you to change city bustle for tranquillity in just a lift ride. As for your arrival and departure, the hotel is just a fifteen minute drive from Pres Ibanez Airport, and if you prefer to sail your way around the world, the boat terminal Tres Puentes is just fifteen minutes away also.
Hotel Cabo de Hornos’ double rooms come with a king size bed and a view fit for a king too, with the breathtaking Magellan Straits waiting to wake you up each morning. After a day of exploring the ends of the earth, you will love curling up inside these modern and stylish bedrooms filled with locally sourced wooden structures, and opulent, rustic style upholstery. With all the usual mod cons included, such as WiFi and a television, it will be difficult to lose touch with the outside world, however much you may want to.
Why we like it?
A hotel with true local character is something we always salute, and from the local materials which create the decor, to the freshly sourced Patagonian cuisine, Hotel Cabo de Hornos does exactly that. Facing the limitless beauty of the Magellan Straits with a glass of sublime Cabernet Sauvignon in our hands, we found a retreat from an adventure holiday that didn’t lose the adventure – perfect.
