British Airways launches flights to Chile’s sophisticated capital in January and it’s a hive of activity for 2017, with hotels opening in heritage buildings (such as the new Hotel Magnolia in El Centro) and the reopening of one of the city’s magnificent palaces, Palacio CousiΓ±o β€” closed since it was damaged by the 2010 earthquake.

The Magnolia Hotel offers a wonderful city centre location and you'll love its elegant vintage-inspired decor.
