Can't believe earlier reviewers whinge about parking....Fauna is in the Old City and makes for a fantastic watering hole for happy Trekkers doing a Valparaiso walking tour. The hotel is actually a skip from Reina Victoria, one of the few remaining Ascensors (cable lift) still operating in Valparaiso. The view from the cafe/restaurant deck is superb. Sit here enjoying a... More

We arrived in Valparaiso not knowing what to expect. The hotel was recommended to us by my partners daughter...we were not disappointed. Whilst Valparaiso city it eclectic and took a while to warm to, we felt quite comfortable at the Hotel Fauna. The greeting was warm and friendly and the check in process held no problems - we speak only... More

Hotel Fauna was fantastic and even might be one of my favorite hotels ever. It's a big statement as my wife and I travel a good deal, and we have lived in many places too (NYC, Toronto, Boston, DC, London etc), but if you want a funky (very cool interior design) hotel that is convenient to everything with a mind-blowing...

Spent a couple of days here and despite the miserable weather, it was a well located place to stay and eat. The rooms are minimalist but warm and comfy; restaurant offers great food and views.

we choose this hotel based on reviews and location, The location is great. The room we had in the bowels of the building smelt exactly that, and for $150 US per night we could have done alot better.

Hotel Fauna is very well-located on Cerro Alegre. It is only steps away from Funicular Reina-Victoria, and is close to many nice restaurants, cafes and bars, as well as tourist attractions of Cerro Alegre and Cerro Concepción. The rooms are tastefully decorated. The rooftop restaurant/bar has a great view (it is advisable to make reservations), and the staff are very... More

We (my parents and myself) stayed at Fauna only for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is a treat.
