SANTIAGO - Lastarria Neighbourhood
Luciano K Hotel
A 38 room boutique hotel, a blend of old character and new design due for soft opening in November 2015.
The hotel will have a lobby, bar and restaurant on the first floor with a terrace overlooking the park. There
will be a spa centre with sauna on the underground floor, and a 300 sq metre rooftop terrace and bar and
amazing views to the park and Plaza Italia! Additionally there will be a heated lap pool on the top floor.
The building is a historic gem in the heart of Barrio Lastarria originally developed by cult architect
Luciano Kulczewski in the 1920’s. Luciano was quite the character – a very eccentric person who became
a legend in the neighbourhood. When it was built this was the highest building in Chile, and the first with
an elevator and central heating.
The new Hotel will also feature the original (first!) elevator in Chile which has been renovated conserving
the original ‘capsule’. All original marble staircases and tiles have been renovated, all wooden doors
amongst many other original features.
