My daughter and I were three days in Valparaiso. We booked this hotel through booking.com and were pleasantly surprised. Hotel was in a quiet area of the city but was.very accessible to most of the sights we wanted to see. Hotel was small but was nicely decorated. Staff were very pleasant and were able to share information about points of... More

Very nice breakfast with 7 different fruits included in a buffet desk. Nice small boutique place if you want to stay a couple of nights. Friendly staff , they gave us a free late check out eventhough they were fully booked.

After over 24hours of travelling from Australia - all we wanted was a good bed and some English speaking Chileans! Once we arrived at Ultramar, the hotel staff greeted us with a big smile and with extremely helpful information on how to get around, where to eat and most importantly, what to explore! The room was spacious and bed extremely... More

I have stayed in many hotels in Valpo over the last several years (sorry I didn't do reviews for many of them- recommendations below) and this has been my worst experience by far. The positives: 1) It is located half-way between Cerros Concepción and Alegre (shops, restaurants, and art galleries) and Cerros Bellavista and Florida (Pablo Neruda's house and several... More

Great location with character galore. Exposed beams, soaring ceilings, wooden floors, charming lounge and breakfast room including patio with views over the bay. Simple rooms, comfortable beds, utilitarian bathrooms. Not the quietest night's sleep on the street side of the hotel due to the ubiquitous dogs of Valpo - earplugs helped. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Even though we had... More

I had a room at the front of the hotel and the cars going up the hill outside reving up their engines to make the hill, kept me awake most of the night. All the floors are wood and when the guest in the room above yours more around, it sounds as if they are wearing wooden shoes. If you... More

Very nice little hotel up in the hills -- not far from the touristy parts of Valpo but far enough away the be tranquil in the evenings. Great views from the deck and balcony. The "garage" is a sight to behold--a vacant dirt lot with some collapsing buildings--and the properties that adjoin the Ultramar are pretty dilapidated to American eyes.... More

Driving up the narrow streets I was getting nervous about where I had planned our stay, but once entering the Ultramar, my views began to change. Nice place. Great view. Friendly and helpful staff. Don't let the "looks" of the neighborhood fool you, once you've been there a while you realize that it's an OK place to be. Plus, great... More

I found this hotel to be great value, many have written about the small size of the room but for what you pay I think it's fine especially given the view! Very comfortable and clean, close the main cerros concepción and alegre. The staff could do with a bit more of restaurant knowledge, what's open etc as I went to... More
