Hotel Luciano K
Last year one of Santiago’s favourite buildings rose from the ashes in Barrio Lastarria as the fully restored 38 room boutique hotel Luciano K.
Named after the cult Chilean architect Luciano Kulczewski who designed this architectural gem, this brand new hotel has more than a touch of “Ghostbusters” about it: originally constructed as an art deco style apartment block, with a locally loved gargoyle leaning down from the roof - several former residents even claim the building has artistic powers!
This project comes from the team behind the Santiago boutique experience that is Lastarria Hotel, and it will appeal to a discerning clientele who love high design, great style, arresting architecture and service that comes with remarkable attention to detail. A blend of old character and new design, the hotel includes a 300m² rooftop terrace complete with heated lap pool, restaurant, bar and amazing views to the Parque Forestal and Plaza Italia.
The building was once the tallest in Chile and the first to have central heating and an electric lift, and the sympathetic restoration showcases the original elevator ‘capsule’. Original marble staircases, tiles, wooden doors and Luciano Kulczewski’s signature art deco features have all been brought back to their former glory, whilst guest rooms have been stylishly re-imagined in modern decor.
So if you are in Santiago: “where you gonna stay? Luciano K!”
