The hotel is OK, but it only offers basic rooms and services. Staff is very kind. breakfast is basic. It is a 20 to 30 minute walk to the city Center where most of the restaurants are. Casa Kalfu does not have a restaurant so you should either go to Puerto Varas or go to the only nearby restaurant which... More

We were so looking forward to enjoying this wonderfully-reviewed boutique hotel. But this was not meant to be. We had emailed the hotel multiple times to make a reservation and had even given our credit card information as they had requested. Imagine our surprise when we arrived and waited about 20 minutes for anyone to come down to the front... More

Dear Ekaterina: We reject this review. You only ask about availability in our hotel. You don t have an e mail with a confirmation of the reservation. Please ask them show e mail of the booking confirmation in our hotel. In high season all the hotels requires a valid reservation. You are in a big mistake. More

We stayed in a standard double and it was a good size, good bed and nice bathroom. Side window to the lake. The weather wasn't great during our stay so we spent time in the lounge which was nice. Breakfasts were great value - when reviewing I try and put this in context of relative costs etc. For the cost... More

When we arrived it was like the Marie Celeste. We had to shout 2 or 3 times before anybody came to reception. We had a lake/volcano view room booked which would have been great if the weather had been better but I can't blame the hotel for that. However I do think they could have got the heating working. The... More

We had a great stay. Cozy interiors. Great help from Francisco at the front desk. He helped us make the best of our time in Puerto Varas. Delicious breakfast (fresh fruit and eggs!). Room with a balcony. Highly recommend it.

Lovely open fire place and communal area to sit with free wifi. Very good advice re what to do, had a hire car delivered to door and drove up to... More

This hotel was such a treat! A truly homey hotel in a touristy city. The owners have clearly worked on providing good experience for their guests. I will be back to Casa Kalfu next time I'm in town. Also, the hostess offered excellent advice on which tours to take.

This is a 14-room hotel on the edge of town. It is approximately a 15 minute walk from the middle of town. The hotel sits on a hill overlooking the lake and volcano, although our room did not have a view. The proprietor was very nice and spent some time recommending activities for our stay. The room is comfortable, and... More

The hotel, on a sloping hill overlooking the lake, is a bit of a landmark, with a tall spire on top of the third floor yet with the warm feel of a small family inn. Our room and bathroom were small but had a nice view of the lake. The desk staff were efficient, gave some good suggestions for restaurants,... More

Just average, good value but nothing out of the ordinary. We needed a place for one night, it was an easy walk to the center of town, room was clean and comfortable, Internet worked. Overall, it worked for us.
