Rambling hotel in a residential area. Decor is dated, but interesting. Generous breakfast with excellent coffee cake. We had take-out pizza in the large lounge area one evening and staff were very accommodating. No elevator.

We stayed here three separate times as a base for exploration. The rooms are of adequate size and are clean. The higher rooms are preferable because of the view and they seem to be larger. The hotel is in a residential area about a 15 minute easy walk from the heart of town, with off-street parking. If you don't want... More

We stayed 2 nights in the hotel which is located out of the main town ( taking about 15/20 mins to walk into the centre). We had a double room at the front of the hotel and we found the room a little noisy; this was a combination of plumbing and timber floors. There is an attractive sitting room just... More

We enjoyed our stay. The breakfast could be a little better but the coffee cake was great. The rooms and nice, the bedding great, and the sitting area in the lobby is lovely. The staff was very helpful. The building is nice and seating outside. Parking area good. Try the Mercado 605 restaurant right at the end of the block... More

We stayed at Casa Kalfu for a night in December before heading to Lakes Crossing. The room was a good size and clean. We just arrived from Santiago and Puerto Montt, so we had to get some rest and sleep. The staff was wonderful and friendly. I had a bad case of sore throat and the staff offered me hot... More

I stayed at hotel Kalfu for three nights the first week of December. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. My room was a good size and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The owner/manager speaks English and was very helpful. When I have a choice between a boutique hotel and a standard hotel, I go for the boutique. I like to open... More

Great staff always ready to help in every need, just like solving car rental, touristic trips, etc. Very cozy place with a view of the Volcano. I bit off centre, perfect if you´re looking for a quiet place but even though close enough of restaurants and facilities for those who like to walk. Not for those expecting luxury, I wouldn't...

Comfortable accommodation, helpful staff, good breakfast. There is a good lounge area for relaxing. Close to town - just 10 or 15 minutes very pleasant walk along the lake. There is a nice cafe at the end of the street towards the lake.

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
