We stayed at the B&B Carino Porteno in November 2015. It exceeded our expectations! The price was great, the owner was kind and the views from our room were incredible! The only thing we should have done differently was the arrival -- we walked from the bus station. While a 1 hour city walk usually isn't a big deal, Valparaiso... More

Valparaiso is historic, picturesque, bohemian, but also rough around the edges. Viña is middle class, safer, and some would say dull, especially out of the summer season. Want to split the difference, visit both without committing fully to either? This is your ideal place to stay. If you arrive by bus and are traveling relatively light, choose to arrive to... More

This is an outstanding B&B, super charming, comfortable, clean, quite, good transport links, delicious breakfast, strategically located in between Valparaiso and Vina del Mar, with a great view of the Pacific ocean and a few steps to the sandy beach. I had a solo stay for a week and couldn't have chose a better place. Lady Veronica, who runs the... More

We stayed at Carino Porteno at the end of our trip in November 2012. We found it to be a lovely B&B with great breakfasts. It was also in a quiet part of town, which we enjoyed. The highlight, however, was our hostess. Although we spoke very little Spanish, and she spoke very little English, she was able to help... More

We stayed at this B and B over the extremely busy new year period as we couldn't get a reasonably priced room near the centre. We had a lovely time there. The owner is extremely friendly, great breakfast and she gave us a metro card so we could get into valparaiso easily. The rooms were comfortable, and everything was clean.... More

Veronica, the owner, is very sweet and takes an interest in making the guests comfortable. We felt very welcome and our children enjoyed the special items set out for them at breakfast. There seems to be quite a bit of street noise in the front rooms, but the back rooms are nice and quiet. Very comfortable beds.

We stayed a couple nights in May. We were initially taken by the colorful house and then delighted by the beautiful views of the pacific from our balcony. The house is just that a house but laid out to feel like a small inn. Super comfortble bed, everything felt new and nicely done. Amazing value for what you get. Veronica... More

My friend and I stayed here twice on our vacation to Chile including last night. Veronica's house is beautiful and she was very nice and helpful. Our room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The location is fantastic as I was able to walk to the beach and catch the sunset. The breakfast is great and the... More

WE stayed here for 2 nights in May.The location is great as it is only a short walk down to restaurants and the train station. The room was a bit on the small size and although Veronica spoke no English and likewise us no Spanish we managed to get by.

The weather was cold and cloudy while I was here, which was no problem because all I wanted to do was relax in the beautiful house, curl up in the comfy bed, and practice my Spanish with Veronica, the muy amable hostess! Everything here so fresh and clean and smells delicious in the house all the time because the jam... More
