This hotel is beautiful, comfortable and in a perfect location. Located on the Cerro Alegre on a narrow cobblestone street, it blends in with the mix of homes and inns on the street and is within walking distance of bars and restaurants. You feel as though you are walking into someone's old house when you enter Somerscales. The historic nature... More

Immediately loved the homey feel of this old colonial home turned boutique hotel with public rooms decorated as it might have been when built. Very comfortable seating in the lobby. Our room on the second floor was large and airy, with large, but modern bath. The management took care of our luggage and also gave us excellent suggestions for restaurants,... More

Stayed two nights before an Oceania cruise. Grabbed the top floor "Room 8" (which has a balcony and harbor view). My only complaints about the room are the absence of window screens and no safe for valuables. Otherwise, very quaint, comfortable and clean. Google the hotel for pics of "room 8." Continental breakfast was more than ample and the manager,... More

A small interesting boutique hotel in an old building on a interesting street in a historic area. The hotel is well run, clean and furnished with an eclectic collection of furniture and interesting bric a brac. The staff were charming, efficient and exceedingly helpful. The breakfast was excellent. Although there are no other meals served in the hotel, it is... More

This is a port town with the oldest part being recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The hotel is in this area. The town is built on many hills which are accessed by narrow street and long stairways. Along with some graffiti it has some very serious street art which it is known for. We loved the hotel...

This is not a hotel. It is a wonderful quaint B&B in one of the best areas of Valpo. It's a great part of town and this is a wonderful place to stay, assuming you aren't looking for mainstream hotel facilities. I hope to cond back and we would definitely stay again.

This hotel is a small hotel in an historic house of the famous painter Thomas Sommerscales. This hotel has character and charm. The hotel is close to great eating spots. It is a 3 story hotel with 8 rooms but without a lift however the people on the desk will help carry luggage right from the street to your room.... More

We stayed 2 nights in room 8 (top floor). The hotel is conveniently and centrally located. Luckily we had a parking space in the garage. The streets are usually full. Reception was fine. However, room 8 (where everyone is so positive about) was a disappointment. The room is quite small, the bathroom is very small and very awkward and not... More

The location of the hotel is excellent on Cerro (Hill) Alegre. The building itself is imposing and beautifully maintained on the outside, with several terraces, some of which command wonderful views over the Valparaiso Bay. There are a lot of steps both to reach the main entrance and inside the hotel, but after all this is Valparaiso. The rooms and... More

The room was fresh, clean and airy with nice views over pretty houses to the sea in the distance. A modern en-suite bathroom and a very comfortable well appointed space. The service was excellent. Individualised, helpful, friendly and thoughtful. Their recommendations all proved most satisfactory. The hotel has real character and the staff make you feel quite at home. This... More
