A very good stay in this interesting and well maintained gem of a hotel, just a couple of blocks uphill from the centre of things in one of the liveliest and most interesting parts of Valparaiso. Everything is within easy walking distance (but I'm glad we left our vehicle in a quieter suburb). Lots of choice for restaurants, bars etc.... More

I almost gave it 4 stars, but I had to give it 5 because of the staff. My reason for the 4 stars would be that the style and the decor were not to my taste, but they are keeping to the history of the place and not completely over-modernize it. The staff were absolutely wonderful, and some of the... More

Staff was great and accommodating. I would recommend. Except they do not have a safe. The breakfast was excellent. Good selection & they lay out the table so nice, I felt like royalty. The rooftop terrace was a little small but a fantastic view overlooking the city. Great for photos. Be prepared to carry luggage up the steps as there... More

We stayed at Hotel Casa Thomas Somerscales for two nights before a two-week cruise. The staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. The hotel itself was beautifully restored -- our room was very large and the windows opened to the street for a wonderful sea breeze. The breakfasts are just scrumptious! A wide variety of food and all of it... More

Beautifully restored mansion well located within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Rooms are spacious and have all amenities, spotlessly clean, respectful of its history as a former home of Thomas Somerscales. Staff are very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast served every day is a joy to behold with fresh fruit and pastries, yogurts, fresh good quality coffee in a... More

We stayed at the Hotel Thomas Somerscales for 2 nights & it was a real pleasure to stay there. The hotel is in a great location with quite a few great bars & restaurants a maximum of 5 minutes away. The staff were really helpful sorting out laundry for us & organising an early breakfast for us. Best of all... More

The staff is very helpful. The location is excellent for walking around. The rooms are unique. Breakfast is wonderful. Narrow streets to walk and enjoy a dinner out. Great for sightseeing during day and easy enough to walk to port area. Note climb back up but not bad with average health.

I was lucky enough to get a full day from my business trip to get to this city and stay a night. I found this lovely hotel in my guide book and no regrets. Located just great and staff was as friendly as ever. Be careful with the taxi drivers from the bus terminal though as they know when you... More

We had a great night in room eight, with a private balcony and nicely redone room. The service was excellent with great suggestions and even the use of the garage when we couldn't find street parking (the garage is small as befitting on older property). They have done a nice job with this property and take the time to help... More

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
