Chile Airbnb: Staying in the Barrio Brasil Neighborhood of Santiago Chile

20-santiago-barrio-brasil1.jpg

Barrio Brasil is nested tightly in the center of Santiago. Once home to the rich and elite, then long forgotten, has since been re-discovered and given a fresh coat of paint. Santiago’s comeback kid has a strong cultural and artistic scene. Watching the neighborhood rebuild itself is part of Barrio Brasil’s charm and choosing your Airbnb stay here makes you a part of that. If you’re a fan of architecture, Barrio Brasil will have you acting like a kid in a candy shop. This neighborhood is part Spanish-style, part Haussmann-style, with the famous Basilica del Salvador a  neo-gothic castle built in 1781, aside the suspected traditional Chilean housing. Phew! That’s a lot to see!

This apartment, suitable for three, is in an old building, but the style is anything but. Live lavish in this well priced commodity while being located near arts centers. The host of this Airbnb listing is also very well rated- always a good sign. Near this historical location is also a little hidden gem more comfortable for one or two people. Previous guests refer to it as “eclectic “, “unforgettable”, and a “prime location”.

If you’re not looking to go too big or too small, this two bedroom is a good fit and very comfortably priced. This sweet setup keeps you close to the boutiques for your exploration and shopping needs. If you plan on making your rounds at the neighborhood restaurants after shopping, be sure to check out Zully, a mid-range priced fine dining experience. Afterwards check out the Museo Artequin, often referred to as the best museum for children, but can certainly be enjoyed by those of us young at heart.Plus, it’s right there in the neighborhood!

Among rustic styled architecture and art that reminds you of Chile’s past and of all the transitions of Barrio Brasil, this modern apartment takes you straight into the future. This two bedroom condominium offers an incredible view and is pet friendly. If you do have a furry friend, there are a couple of parks right outside the neighborhood. Speaking of nature, South America’s oldest natural museum is also nearby. Another modern styled apt HERE is similar, a bit smaller in square footage, but with a great price to make up for it.

Now that you know where you’re staying, get TheBesty App for free in the App Store or on Google Play, and have a personal concierge in your pocket for your trip that will answer your questions in a live chat, or help you book tours, activities, and local experiences.
