Steps from the city's main Plaza de Armas square and the Magallanes Museum, this refined boutique hotel occupies one of the oldest buildings in Patagonia, a grand 1890 brick mansion with an ornate stone facade. Located in the center of town, it was originally built as the home of Patagonian sailor and businessman Jose Nogueira and his entrepreneur wife Sara Braun. Declared a national monument in 1982, the hotel still exudes its original splendor, with neoclassical décor featuring rich dark woods, leather furniture, oriental rugs, lavish draperies, and elegant lighting. Its 23 en suite guest rooms have hardwood or parquet floors, writing desk, Wi-Fi, flat screen cable TV, safe and mini bar. Two dining rooms contain original furniture, lamps and curtains from the mansion’s private-home era, while a lavish buffet breakfast is served each morning in the light-drenched conservatory. The hotel also houses Punta Arenas’ most historic watering hole, the Shackleton Bar. Have a cocktail or light meal, or choose a bottle of Chilean wine from the lavishly stocked wine cellar. The bar also holds a meticulous recreation of the original whisky taken to Antarctica by Sir Ernest Shackleton on one of his expeditions between 1907 and 1909 and found 100 years later.
