Imagine this. You take a winding journey in a cab from the bus station (15 mins, about 5-6000 CP), up into the hills of Valparaiso and into the suburbs that make this town so special. You get out at the gate and climb about 15-20 steep stairs to the front door. Inside you are greeted by a very friendly reception... More

Loved the family run atmosphere at this place, they were very accommodating and patient with my rusty Spanish! Owner regaled us with interesting tales of the town and Chilean history. Rooms were gorgeous, with great views of the city and ocean. Good location close to lots of cool restaurants and cafes.

We stayed in the top floor room with surrounding windows. The view from the room was unbelievable, looking down the hill towards the ocean and far side hills. We had to climb stairs ( 2-3 floors worth) to get to the entrance of the building, which could be a little difficult with big luggage. Breakfast was served in the old... More

I picked out Sutherland House from the tripadvisor reviews and it lived up entirely to its reputation. Nothing fancy here. But a beautiful home turned B and B, outstanding views, comfortable, but small, rooms, and friendly and responsive service. Convenient location and excellent breakfast. I would definitely return.

The views from Sutherland House take in all of Valparaiso, Vina del Mar and far beyond -- truly amazing views! The owner and staff are genuinely helpful, our corner room on the top floor was clean and spacious and inviting, the location is ideal, and Sutherland House deservedly prides itself on serving full-bodied coffee (no Sanka!) and a delicious assortment...

This hotel offers great views over the city and the bay. But to get to these views you have to walk a lot of stairs, first to get to the front door and then to the room. We stayed on the top floor in the corner room so that ment negotiating the narrow stair with our luggage. On the other... More

Sutherland House is a great hotel, though some features make it a poor choice for some visitors--especially the elderly. Pros: --Recently renovated, well-kept, furniture and fixtures are comfortable and high-quality. --Friendly, accessible owner & helpful reception will really go the extra mile. They happily helped us to make dinner reservations as well as schedule tours, activities, etc. They even helped... More

The owners are just lovely, great attention. The room and the view were perfect, and its location is excellent. We like to recommend it, if you're interested in hosting at Cerro Alegre in Valparaiso, this is the place. A 15 minutes walk near to good restaurants, Neruda house among other attractions.

Sutherland House is a small (8 room) boutique hotel hotel high on one of Valparaiso's many hills. The rooms are on the small side, nicely furnished with modern baths and other features, most with views of the harbor. The owner and members of the hotel staff are extremely friendly and willing to help in any way. Complimentary champagne is a... More

We found that this hotel had a nice cosy interior but we were given a very tiny room and an even tinier bathroom for our 2 day stay in Valparaiso so we were not exactly comfortable. The owner is a nice gentleman who was willing to chat and be helpful but overall this hotel was a disappointment as it also... More
