Our tour of Chile started in Valparaiso, where we stayed one night at this very charming hotel, where you really feel like you were at home. We could really have stayed many more nights at this place, time permitting. Beautiful, spacious rooms, a quiet, friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, excellent breakfast served in a tastefully decorated dining room. The location is... More

Wonderful staff and a good internet. Old-fasioned but with an... More

We enjoyed the Hotel Thomas Somerscales, named after an Anglo-Chilean painter, who specialized in portraits and marine scenes about 100 or so years ago. At least one of his Chilean marine paintings is in the Tate. The hotel was lovely, service was superb, in a very nice section of Cerro Allegre, though it is a stiff uphill walk from the... More

This is a lovely place to stay. Although it is called a hotel, there are only eight rooms and it has the feel of a quaint B&B. The furnishings and antiques are beautiful and help to create a warm and intimate atmosphere. The staff was extremely helpful and anxious to please. Although there is no hotel parking, it is not...

We were lucky enough to spend a couple of nights here in January 2014, and had the top floor room (Room 8) which has a fantastic view across the town and the port.

We had the top floor room with the best view in the entire city -- spend a magical three days exploring decaying/vibrant, drab/brillant Valpo. I would highly recommend this hotel -- great location on tourist-friendly cerro alegre, kind and attentive hoteliers, elegant and ample breakfast.
