You have some choices in Viña...empty your wallet and stay at the glitzy/sterile Sheraton, or find something more modest. In the modest category the Offenbacher Hof is a nice find. There has obviously been a lot of work done to the residence and it seems the rooms are being incrementally remodeled? The first room we had (21) had many problems... More

I spend a weekend there with my parents and we had a great time. The host, Francisco, knows everything in the area and gave us the best tips, for sure our trip was a lot better with the tour he told us to do. The house is near to the bus station and the room is very big (we were... More

We spent two nights here and we felt that we got a good value for the price. It is easy to walk to the bus station and to the downtown area. The rooms and the hotel itself are aged but clean. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast was good.

We spent our first 2 nights in Chile here and we are glad we did. The staff was very helpful and spoke and understood English well. Our host learned our names as soon as we arrived and addressed by our names during our stay. The hotel is well located only a few minutes walk to the city center, the subway... More

This was an excellent choice made by my brother- the location is central to the Metro so there is easy accessibility to Valparaiso and other sections of Vina. The terrace is an excellent place to have breakfast overlooking the city. The staff is very accommodating and hospitable (but isn't every Chilean?) and the hotel itself is extremely clean. My room...

This was a perfect spot for us! Very accessable to everything we needed, and the breakfasts were very plentiful and fresh, with great service. A lovely tiled courtyard with lots of plants and flowers, and glassed-in breakfast area. Everyone was helpful and polite, and we had our daughter to translate, which was a plus. Our top-floor room had a great... More

Great location to cafes, metro stop and bus stop (for Valparaiso). Quiet neighborhood with nice view of hillside. Parking onsite with our rental car was an added bonus. Walking distance to Vina del Mar beach. The manager was polite and very helpful. Each day he sat down with us and suggested an itinerary. The rooms are a bit dated, but... More

I spent six nights at this hotel recently and would return again and again. After visiting Viña for over 30 years this is the best place yet. Very friendly staff and a clean and pleasant hotel. The Cerro Castillo is near the city below but is set apart - which is one of this hotel's charms.

The location is convenient to the city center, yet as it is situated on a hill, the hotel receives good air circulation from the sea. The room was clean and had a good panorama of the city. (We occupied the top floor, seen from the photo. The manager was very helpful in suggesting a self-guided tour of Valpo and steered... More

When we arrived to check in to the two rooms we reserved 5 months ago through Carmen and confirmed through Carmen one week prior we were told that none were available and that we would be placed in a private residence around the corner. It was a private residence and looked like it. We immediately left and were forced to... More
