We flew in Santiago to meet our cruise ship the Marina (Oceania Cruises) the following day. After doing some research right here on TripAdvisor we settled on The Fauna. We were not disappointed. Everything was A1 from beginning to end. This charming boutique hotel was in a perfect location, with a great restaurant and terrace on the roof overlooking the... More

Hotel Fauna is located on a walking street right near the top of one of Valparaiso's "ascensors." In addition to its great location, the hotel has a wonderful roof deck that that can enjoy roof while dining at the restaurant as well as cool architecture that reflects Valparaiso's shabby-chic feel. The one major drawback of the hotel, which comprises two... More

What a unique place this city and hotel is. Staff very wonderful and accomadations great. Very artistic. Our stay included many things due to being a holiday package. Welcome cocktails and outstanding appetizers, street art walking tour, dinner on the terrace before phenomenal fireworks display. We cannot say enough.

Fauna hotel is in a nice and safe area in Valparaiso, with a wonderful view over the harbour and Valparaiso city especially from the rooftop terrace. At first we got a very basic room (No 4) which would have been impossible, as it seems to have been recently painted/ impregnated and the smell of solvents was impossible (hopefully gone by... More

Really fun to stay there. the building was rebuilt from old buildings creatively morphing modern with the old, on a hillside so we went down to get to our room. The building materials are lovely, old floors, old wood trim, old plaster walls, slate /tile, and a view of Santiago that's unbeatable. You can eat there too, in a restaurant... More

Our room faced the ...although a pedestrian... walkway , it was often noisy. The rooftop restaurant was so great... The staff was always friendly, and they even tried so hard to recover some items...

This small charming hotel was a perfect choice for our short Valpo-stay. The view from the balcony of the hotel is unbeatable and it is located in the middle of cerro Conception. The room was rough in the good way and answer the demands of a guest who use it only for a night sleep. Clean of course. The breakfast... More

We loved Fauna Hotel! It's very rustic, yet chic. The location is great; very central to everything. There are lots of stairs and no lift, but the staff are happy to help with luggage. The staff are also very helpful and answered many questions for us. A generous breakfast is provided, with table service, which is nice. We are vegan,... More
