Choosing the right hotel in Puerto Natales

The accommodation options in Puerto Natales have transformed in recent years. There’s a wonderful choice of interesting options that make a great base for your adventures in Torres del Paine National Park:

  • A luxury hotel that is also a museum and world-class restaurant, with beautiful views across the fjord, 4km outside town.
  • Several upmarket and interesting options on the outskirts of town, with unique architecture and good service.
  • A range of options in the town itself: charming B&Bs, more traditional larger 3-star hotels, quirky boutique hotels and an upmarket option with roof-top jacuzzi.

Many customers choose to treat themselves to something special in Puerto Natales on their return from a trek in Torres del Paine.

Accommodation Types

Something Special

The Singular

A former cold-storage facility with its own museum, The Singular wins over many on its architectural design alone - in 1996 the Chilean government declared it a 'National Historic Landmark'.

At its heart sits a grand and popular restaurant, there's a waterfront spa, and spacious rooms offer impressive views of the Fjord of Last Hope. A great place to recuperate on the way to or from Torres del Paine National Park.

The Remota is a luxury sanctuary just outside of town, with views across the Fjord of Last Hope. Perhaps not as remote as the name suggests, it's a fantastic choice for those who want to relax and enjoy amazing food at the end of a long trek. The building itself is fascinating and stylishly - if sometimes rather quirkily - designed. There's a spa, too.

Have a think about whether you want to stay in Puerto Natales, for easy access to shops and restaurants, or if you're happy to walk, drive or cycle a short distance into town when you need to. Most out-of-town hotels are well worth considering, if only for their views of the Fjord of Last Hope.

What our customers think of Puerto Natales Hotels

Puerto Natales was definitely the right place for us to stay. It was very easy to get around and I was surprised by how much wildlife we saw in the park, without even trying!

FAQs about Hotels in Puerto Natales

  • What's the best part of town to stay in?

    Puerto Natales isn't a big town, so most hotels are either a short walk from the main plaza or out of town. It really depends on whether you want to have easy access to shops and restaurants or are looking for an out of town retreat, and don’t mind walking or driving (or cycling) into town when you need to. The out-of-town hotels are mainly located along the fjord, and a taxi to/from town typically costs $3,000-$4,000 Chilean pesos.

  • How far away is the airport?

    Puerto Natales airport is 9.2km away and a 15 minute drive, and Punta Arenas airport is 228km and a 2.5 hour drive.

  • How far away is the bus station?

    The bus station is on the eastern side of town on Avenida España. It's 14 blocks from the main plaza and walkable for those with backpacks to/from most central hotels, or a short taxi ride if you have more luggage. Note that for morning taxis to the bus station it's recommended to book the night before as there is a high demand.

  • Can I store luggage in my hotel / hostel?

    Yes, most hotels will store your luggage so that you can take only what you need into Torres del Paine National Park.

  • Can I park in town?

    Most hotels have their own private parking area. Otherwise it’s quite easy to park on the street close by.

I love Puerto Natales: It's a small, friendly town where everybody knows everybody and you can already see mountains from afar. It’s like the real gate to Patagonia.
