A fantastic surprice our agency had found to us. You feel at home. Had the luck to stay for 5 days. Beautiful room, wonderful surroundings, and a breakfast that you are looking forward to every morning. Even there was an earth quake during our stay everything was calm and peaceful. 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...

This was a wonderful place to stay, and I would definitely return. The rooms are charming and clean. The staff is extremely helpful, and the breakfast was very nice. Our room did not have a balcony, but they have a lovely outdoor patio that we enjoyed. I highly recommend this lovely boutique hotel. I can think of no negatives, and... More

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. Fantastic fresh breakfast served in their homely dining room. Very friendly staff, very helpful in recommending local restaurants and things to see in the town. Perfect base... More

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.

Yes it is 62 steps from the sidewalk to the room, but being in the room at the top front of the house is one of the most magical I have been in. Room number 8. We arrived early and our room was ready. The rooms on the second floor (American) are huge but I wouldn't trade the top. It... More
