The Singular Santiago

Swiss citizens Paul and Bertha Sahli, arrived in Chile in 1913. Their eldest son, Fernando, leased the Crillón Hotel and invited his siblings Pablo and Raul to join him in the business. The Crillón hotel opened in 1931 becoming the most luxurious hotel in Santiago and an elegant social events centre. The hotel closed in 1978 however Fernando’s sons continued working in the hotel industry. Felipe, who studied in Lausanne, was involved in the setting up of the Holiday Inn hotels in Chile and Buenos Aires. He later created The Singular Hotel concept and opened The Singular Patagonia in 2011 and The Singular Santiago in 2014. Located in the heart of Santiago, The Singular Santiago, Lastarria Hotel is renowned for its neo-classical architectural style, which was designed as a tribute to its cultural and historic surroundings. It holds a perfectly balanced architecture, setting and gastronomy which blend into the essence of the place. The project  comprises 6,500 m² of built area divided into nine floors, which include 62 rooms, a restaurant, terrace, Spa, gym and luxury meeting rooms. The architectural design was led by Federico Prieto and the interior design by Enrique Concha. Chilean designer Enrique Concha created an inspiring and inviting environment that is pristine yet comfortable; elegant yet welcoming. Custom furnishings inspired by the classic European elegance of yesteryear mix well with modern accouterments and carefully selected art. 


The Singular Santiago is located in the Lastarria neighbourhood, one of the most charming places in the city, with a rich history and cultural life.  Located in the north-east of town, it is only steps away from the Santa Lucia hill and the Parque Forestal.

Leisure Activities

Located on the northeast side of Santiago. Lastarria is a classic area loaded with history and culture. Its urban development began with the building of the Veracruz Church, in the middle of the 19th century. However, its consolidation lies in the early days of the 20th century with the redevelopment of the Santa Lucia hill and the construction of Forestal Park and the Museum of Fine Arts.

In 1997, Lastarria was declared a “Zona Tipica” which brings with it strong protection and preservation of its architectural heritage. During this period, the Plaza Mulato Gil was created, which is home today to an antique and book fair. There is no doubt that the Lastarria neighborhood is an oasis inside bustling downtown Santiago. Here, culture and entertainment converge in a captivating mixture of art, literature, music, film, theater, gastronomy and design.
