The hotel is situated close to one of the funicular railway. A stunning hotel set high on a hill with spectacular views over the town and harbour below. Interesting décor with very nice fittings. The bar/restaurant at the top of the hotel is very good.

Hotel Fauna highlighted how wonderful it can be when staff are " switched on ", affable, and extremely capable. We arrived at hotel fauna directly from Santiago airport - early in the morning and were immediately taken care of. Way too early to check in ( about 7:30 am). Carlos, one of many great staff, immediately set aside an area... More

Fauna Hotel and Restaurant is situated in an excellent location in Valparaiso just a short walk along the cobblestone pathway from Ascensor Reina Victoria in Cerro Conception. The hotel is modern rustic and staffed with enthusiastic, helpful people, who obviously enjoy working there. The views from the restaurant were magnificent as was the food and service. We thoroughly recommend Fauna... More

This hotel is a great find. It's at the heart of everything and very clean and comfortable. I've been here three nights and would highly recommend it. The view from my bedroom was beautiful, the staff have been very helpful and the restaurant has terrific food.. All in all pretty great for the price.

Hotel was great! We only had one day in Valparaiso before boarding a cruise ship and the hotel was recommended by the company that provided our transportation from Santiago (along with stops at a few wineries :) ) We booked a suite and had a larger room facing the water. No television but it was not missed. Room was clean... More

Perfectly placed in the centre of Valparaiso right by one of the funiculars with wonderful views, we loved this modern upbeat hotel. A good atmosphere with very helpful and friendly staff. My partner has a bit of a problem with stairs and on arrival they immediately switched us to a ground-level room. Fab restaurant on the roof with delicious breakfast,... More

Boy, did we love this place. The room was spacious and the bed was the most comfortable in our two-weeks of traveling. The hotel feels like a secret you can't wait to share with all your friends. Super friendly and genuinely helpful young staff. The breakfast that was included with our stay was phenomenal -- not just a little coffee... More

We loved this unusual Hotel. It is made from 2 old adobe buildings which have been restored. This means several flights of stairs, but no lift. We had Room 1 on the lower floor, which still has adobe walls! It is all very clean, beds comfortable, nice bathroom. The restaurant on the upper floor has lovely food with fabulous views... More

Hotel Fauna was a wonderful place to relax and take it easy after a long day of walking around Valpo and riding the ascensiors. We were traveling with our college son and they had a room with two beds at a reasonable price. The service was gracious and friendly. The included breakfast was wonderful and more than we could eat,... More

This is a gem of a hotel! We were there for 4 nights and loved it. Neat, clean, comfortable beds and the staff is amazing! Carlos and Rebecca are diamonds! They helped with reservations, tours and the endless need for directions for the funky town. It's right by a list and a fabulous wine store, Antonia Wine Boutique, which is... More
