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

El Mirador was a lovely spot that we stayed in with another couple for three days in February. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was tasty. Maria provided us with a map with all the highlights of the city marked off. The B&B was well situated with easy walking to a number of restaurants. If we go back... More

Regretfully we only stayed here one night. Had we known what a nice place this was we would have stayed a week. el Mirador is a gorgeous heritage home located in the "hills" of Valparaiso with a terrace overlooking the city and harbour - fabulous view. The B & B has easy access to transportation and is within walking distance... More

Classic fin de siècle neighborhood house - three wings built around sunny courtyard - open to the downhill overlook. Room was spacious and bright, with private bath and kitchen just down the hallway. Best of all, though, was the truly warm welcome we received - and breakfast, except for the fresh bread from the bakery just down the street, was... More

We loved our stay at El Mirador. The room is brilliant including a spacious bathroom, your own private kitchen and amazing views from the terrace. The comfiest beds we have slept in so far, breakfast is delicious and Marisol and Maria are wonderful hosts, always helpful and have fantastic tips about Valparaiso. We would certainly stay here again. Thank you... More

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. Nice rooms, wonderful service, make us feel to be in our own house. Very good breakfast, with delicious breads and fruits. In the back as the name says El Mirador, with a very nice view of Valparaiso and its harbour. The ratio of cost/benefit is very good.

We stayed here only 1 night after we left our hotel in central Valparaiso and it was a welcomed change. Location is a bit out from the main areas of town and since it was holiday season, a lot was closed but luckily we had a car to drive to other areas for dinner. The rooms were cute, wi-fi worked...

My husband and I, with two other couples, stayed here for one night in early December before embarking on a cruise. What a fun place! I found it through tripadvisor and it worked very well indeed. Our hostesses could not have been kinder. When I asked if we could have a different room, as the one we were given did... More

We stayed with Señora Marisal and Maria in November and had the best time. Excellent price, excellent value and excellent location. Breakfast was included in the price and felt like we were having our meals with family. And like the name there is a massive lookout at the back. Fue un lugar muy placentero para nosotros. Nos sentimos como en... More
