The B&B was our best experience in Valparaiso. The staff very kind and helpful although doesn't speak English. The place very nice as well as the rooms, clean and confortable. Excellent position, far from the hectic and touristy side of the city but only 10 min walk from the centre and beautiful views over the bay from the little terrace.... More

Awesome stay here! We stayed for one night in one of the apartments. Very clean and delicious breakfast! The apartment had hot water (really important), TV, kitchen, pretty much anything you'd need. The view from the terrace is beautiful too. The owner was very sweet and willing to help out with recommendations around the city etc. Definitely recommend!

I was most impressed with the standard of hospitality at this B&B. With most impressive views over Valparaiso, spacious garden with plenty of room for guests to relax in, and a friendly ambience provided by the owner and her staff, nothing was too much trouble and my stay was made so much more enjoyable for these reasons. The breakfast served... More

El Mirador is tops! Great view, friendly staff and very clean. Maria was extremely charming and made us the best breakfast that we had our entire trip. The location is slightly off the beaten path, but that can lend itself to a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We stayed in one of the apartments and really enjoyed it. The owner and staff are simply delightful and so ready to help out at all times. The breakfast was lovely with fresh made juice, meat, cheese and warm bread. We slept so well in the super soft, comfy bed. Valpo is not easy to navigate, so don't just rely... More

Our experience was so good that make us try to find a similar B&B everywhere else in Chile. First we did not book anything, Marisol helped us out, put us in the room just facing the bay. Room was much more than expected, space that we needed, a kitchen, well kept, clean and comfortable. We had to leave the day... More

We (Jan and Manuela) stayed two times at El Mirador. In totally almost three weeks. We enjoyed it every minute. Marie Soledad and Mary are the most perfect hosts we had on our trip. Perfect breakfast, perfect clean rooms, good equipped kitchens. And the view over the city is magnificent. Thank you very much!!!

I stayed at el Mirador for two nights in July and was charmed by the welcome and the help from Maria Soledad and Mary. The room was cosy and clean and there are fantastic views over the bay from the verandah. It's a very pretty old house that has been lovingly restored. I strongly recommend this bed and breakfast!

I stayed at El Mirador for nearly two months while doing some work in Valpo. I was always impressed by how professional, hardworking, and caring Maria Soledad, her mom and Mary were. The rooms were always spotless clean and had comfortable beds. The view was amazing too! I always had a good breakfast at the time I wanted it, which... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on arriving in Valparaiso and 2 weeks later spent another 2 nights. El Mirador is in a convenient spot within walking distance of the centre of town. There are great views from the terrace at the rear of the property. Maria was very helpful and welcoming, helping us where possible. Being able to speak... More
