My Wife and I was about to enter Hotel Acontraluz after dinner when a young man approached us and pulled a knife on us. He stole my wife's purse, my wallet,and both of our wedding rings. We reported this to the management and they called the police. After waiting over an hour for the police to arrive, and we went... More

I enjoyed staying here with my wife. The welcome was warm, and our room, decorated in the period of the house, was roomy and had a balcony to relax on. However, we had a small problem with the plumbing and we were immediately transferred to a room on the top floor, which had modern decor (and plumbing), and and even... More

We had a nice experience at this hotel for our 1 night stay. The rooms were clean and the balcony was incredible. It really is a no brainier to try and book a balcony room if you can. Waking up in the morning with the view of the sunrise and fog hovering over the water was unbelievable. Breakfast was good... More

Charming address in a renovated house at the heart of the old valparaiso. The hotel offers nice, clean rooms, some with view on the port of valparaiso. Hot water and efficient heating well appreciated by a cold winter night. Cosy tea time / breakfast area. Good service, english spoken. The hotel is very well located and all highlights and restaurants... More

We spent one night pre-cruise in this delightful hotel, located on a quiet street on one of Valpariso's hills. The hotel is a great mix of old and modern. Beautiful hardwood floors, old fashioned furnishings, but with a very open concept in the public areas. We splurged and stayed in a room with it's own terrace with wonderful views of... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Hotel Boutique Acontraluz. First of all, if you are looking for a boutique experience, this is not. It is a bed and breakfast "hotel" with a very expensive price tag. The smallest lowest priced rooms are over $200. The rooms with a view top $400. We loved the hill neighborhood and choices of... More

A lovely boutique hotel in a good location with superb views of Valparaiso. Very welcoming, it has a calm, peaceful and relaxed atmosphere and it was a great place to finish up our trip to Chile and wind down after our busy programme. The room although not big was very comfortable and well appointed with a good bathroom and it... More

After a long flight from the UK and a car journey of around an hour and a half from Santiago airport, it was a real relief to be dropped off at Hotel Acontraluz. The front desk staff of this small boutique hotel were very helpful and attentive and the property itself is fascinating. The location was excellent for exploring the... More

This is a wonderful hotel in a great location in Valparaiso. It is a hotel that would appeal to people who are interested in old architecture and houses as the hotel was created from 2 old houses. The furnishings go with the era of the house and there is not air conditioning.. The views from the balcony rooms over the... More
