We (my parents and myself) stayed at Fauna only for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is a treat. We had a difficult time finding a hotel in Valparaiso that could accommodate 3 people in one room without having to use an uncomfortable roll-away bed. Fauna had a wonderful room with a queen bed as... More

Staying a couple of nights at Hotel Fauna when visiting Valparaiso was nothing but a joyful experience. The hotel is stylish with lots of steel and glass, the beds and the linen are more than comfortable and the service in both Spanish and English are without complaints but the best, I must say, is the exquisite breakfast they serve you...

we stayed in a variety of rooms within this property over a week. I actually enjoyed the cheapest room the best as it is totally insulated and completely private with a very funky exposed rock wall in the bedroom and bathroom which is well light with down lights for effect. If you are trying to cut costs and want seclusion... More

We enjoyed our 2 night stay here, but had to wear earplugs at bed time due to the scraping of chairs in the restaurant above, which carries right down into the room. It is such a shame and could be easily improved by laying some industrial carpet. This problem is not just of a night, but also early in the... More

We took a quick getaway here from Santiago less than a week after the tragic fires hit Valparaiso. We are glad we went through with our plans. The hotel is $10, 15-minute cab-ride from the central bus station, and is located about a 300 meter walk from the main road by Cerro Alegre and another 100 meters from a funicular.... More

Hotel Fauna is a delightful hotel nestled into the valparaiso hillside among freshly graffitied, brightly painted, ramshackle homes, hostels and emporiums. The exterior blends in with the corrugated surroundings but the interior is more akin to an art installation or modern museum. Solid wood staircases and exposed brick walls give way to discreet window openings on to quiet courtyards housing... More

Gorgeous hotel, very sophisticated and unusual design that fit perfectly with Valparaiso, including the interesting wall paintings, on the side of the building and in some of the rooms. Beautiful linens. Lovely view onto buildings of Valpo. Location was excellent, too, right at top of one of the main funiculars. There's an interesting wine shop with a few tables right... More
