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

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.
