We recently had a lovely stay at the Yellow House. Our room was clean and comfortable with spectacular views over the city and the harbour, and we enjoyed the generous, tasty breakfasts, which set us up for each day's sightseeing. We found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and hospitable. We would certainly recommend the Yellow House to others.... More

Anna and Connie were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The breakfast they provided at a big community table was generous and good. Our room was pretty basic [mattress & bedding sure need upgrades] but had a fabulous view through huge windows [Oceana room]. Those were the good things. The biggest downside was that there was only one little... More

A lovely B&B with the most helpful and friendly staff. The place is on a hill, so make sure to book a room facing the ocean. The rooms facing the ocean has LARGE windows with very thin frames, so the view is spectacular. Very basic but well worth the price. Highly recommended!

Quirky, cosy, wonderfully friendly staff, terrific location, great views. I just wish I could have stayed for longer than one night! Will definitely come back if I ever have the chance to visit Valparaiso again.

Girlfriend and I got there and both were not that excited as others reviewers seems to be. First of all, the location is not super fun. It's above the old port (well the view is fantastic) and to go into bar and restaurant where the nighlife is you really have to go by collectivo. Otherwise you have to walk by... More

I can't say enough about this place. All the reviews about the stunning views, clean bathrooms, and nice amenities is true, but the real draw of this place are the people that run it, headed by Anna, who is an angel.

We agree with all the former reviews about the owner of the place, Anna, lovely and sweet. We had the room with the great view of Valparaiso. We can definitely recommend this room with private bathroom. It also has a water cooker. Nearby you also have a lovely view of the city with a terrace. Breakfast was great and during... More

OK so apparently the area between here and the centre of town is a bit sketchy but I think that's true of a lot of areas in Valparaiso! Amazing views of the port.

It's a short (10 minutes) and lovely walk from the main square up the hill to the yellow house. It is such a charming little B&B and we loved it.
