We stayed here in the low season. I think we were the only guests for a few days, so they upgraded us for free to the best room in the hotel. It was a great room, with 2 stories, a fireplace and a panoramic view of the city. On our last night, we had to move to a different room,... More

This is a relatively small boutique hillside hotel whose rooms share a beautiful view of the city. Rooms are unusuaal in that many are dual level with a sleeping loft perched over the lower living area complete with kitchenette. Heat comes only from a wood burning stove in each room well supplied with wood and it by hotel staff when... More

Had a very comfortable stay in this small, cosy boutique hotel in Val Paraiso. Clean beautiful rooms with high ceilings, with a great view, and a lovely bespoke breakfast in a sleek modern yet cosy communal area. The hillside village it's located in was also very pleasant to stroll around in as well and is purportedly much safer than down... More

We enjoyed our 4 night pre-cruise stay at Hotel Cirilo Armstrong very much. The hotel had arranged our transfer from Santiago Airport and from the moment we arrived at the hotel we found the staff to be excellent. Rooms are very clean and well maintained and breakfast was always delicious. The hotel is within walking distance to very good restaurants,... More

This hotel was a bit to cool for us. The design is lovely but I felt a bit like I was in a modern art museum rather than a hotel, I felt like the (clean) walking boots I'd travelled in were frowned upon. The rooms where clean and the staff were very helpful but there was constant dog barking.There's not... More

Cool, hip and very comfortable. Read other reviews, but found the hotel on my cellphone GPS quite easily. And yes, the street side parking was not really a problem, though it could be due to inclined streets for those who are not familiar with stick-shift cars. Staff - Very helpful, professional and informed. They do everything they can to make... More

We were 7 Americans visiting Valpo, including a 2 year old. The hotel is new, small, and architecturally very interesting. Each of our rooms had a pleasant patio overlooking the canyon down towards the port. My patio had a wood fired hot tub. The lobby is spacious with check-in doubling as a small bar for guests at night. The lobby... More

Once you locate this property, it's a pretty cool place to stay in Valparaiso. Taxi driver had heck of a time finding this hotel. You have to have a pretty good sense of humor when it comes to locating anything in this city. Great part of town with great views. Rooms above reception do have better views. Having said that,...

I was fortunate to spend two nights at Cirilio Armstrong thanks to a friend's recommendation after her lovely visit. What a charming hotel. It's nestled in the hills of Cerro Alegre which is a lively part of the city with great restaurants and bars within close walking distance to the hotel. The hotel offers a fabulous Hot Tub option (in... More

We were in Valpo (Valparaiso) for the New Year’s Eve fireworks spectacular and absolutely fell in the love with the city. With its story from its rise to riches due to the location of its port for trade to its fall from grace due to the creation of the Panama Canal, the street art and the overall bohemian cultural we...
