This gay-owned and operated establishment was the TripAdvisor winner for Best Inn/B&B in Santiago. However, as of late 2015, Casa Moro is no longer on the market and there is no contact info for the management. Casa Moro and its owners were beloved by gay visitors staying in Santiago.

True apartment-style living. This is a great choice if you all of the amenities of your own one bedroom apartment. There’s a full kitchen, a living area with stylishly modern furnishings, and even a small balcony. One issue is noisy neighbors on the weekends, but if you are out partying until the crack of dawn yourself, it’s not an issue. There is a front gate, but no hotel-style front desk with English speakers.
