The Gervasoni was once the home of an Italian consul in Valparaiso and its perched up on high in one of the many hills (cerros) that dot the Valparaiso landscape. In this case its Cerro Concepción. Access is easy via the nearby ascensor or lift. The hotel is small and probably only has 15 or so rooms. Most of the... More

We stayed at the Gervasoni in June for two nights. The hotel is in a very characterful old building with beautiful views, and this is what you're paying for (the hotel being somewhat expensive). The location is brilliant, right at the top of the Concepcion elevator with great access to both the port district and the bars and restaurants of... More

We spent two nights at this charming boutique hotel in March 2015. Our room was beautiful, with lovely views across the bay. While there are no elevators to upper floors, our bags were swiftly carried up to our room by the very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was fantastic, with hot and cold offerings, which were swiftly replenished as... More

Before I go any further, you need to be able to handle stairs for this hotel. That said, this place is charming. It is situated atop one of Valparaiso's many cerros (hills) in a quiet part of the city. It was convenient to restaurants in the area. We stayed here for three nights, no complaints. There is a nice breakfast... More

My friend and I stayed here and quite enjoyed it. If you appreciate history and antique style you will appreciate this hotel. It was built in the 1800's so don't expect granite and elevators. It is really neat and has a lot of character. Its location is great for exploring the older areas of this city which is the whole... More

My granddaughter and I stayed two nights most recently in this "hotel", but I think it is more or less like a bed and breakfast in a large, Victorian House- not that this is a bad thing, but something to prepare for. There are several floors accessed by long steep steps (no elevator)- the entire place is 100% quaint and... More

This hotel is a welcome step back in time to when large merchant houses overlooked the sea in this wonderful city. Structurally little has changed, even the calendar looks like it could have been operating in the mid 19th century. But do not let this put you off, it's enchanting with all mod cons (sorry no AC) with fine beds... More

If your idea of a hotel is an American chain like Marriot do not contemplate spending a second at this hotel - you'll hate it. If you have - dare I say it - a more European and adventurous attitude - you might relish the experience. It's an old house, somewhat dilapidated, stuffed with mismatched furniture. Each room is unique... More

We booked this hotel as a pre-cruise stay through hotels.com/Delta. It was pre-paid which was a big mistake. Our driver dropped us off as close to the hotel as possible-you cannot pull up in front. We dragged our bags down the street steps and up the front steps of the hotel. There are no elevators and your room could be... More
