“A wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I stayed at el Mirador for two nights in July and was charmed by the welcome and the help from Maria Soledad and Mary. The room was cosy and clean and there are fantastic views over the bay from the verandah. It's a very pretty old house that has been lovingly restored. I strongly recommend this bed and breakfast!

I stayed at El Mirador for nearly two months while doing some work in Valpo. I was always impressed by how professional, hardworking, and caring Maria Soledad, her mom and Mary were. The rooms were always spotless clean and had comfortable beds. The view was amazing too! I always had a good breakfast at the time I wanted it, which was nice as my schedule varied from day to day. Staff went always above and beyond with anything that I needed. Two friends unexpectedly stayed in Valpo one night and Maria Soledad had a room ready for them in a matter of minutes. My visit was extremely pleasant thanks to El Mirador's staff. The house itself is worth visiting for its beauty. I would recommend El Mirador to anyone.

We stayed here for 3 nights on arriving in Valparaiso and 2 weeks later spent another 2 nights.
El Mirador is in a convenient spot within walking distance of the centre of town.
There are great views from the terrace at the rear of the property.
Maria was very helpful and welcoming, helping us where possible. Being able to speak English was a very useful in giving us information about what to do and see in Valparaiso.
The breakfast was very good and we enjoyed the fresh fruit.
Lastly it was a very quiet location and we watched the parrots at close quarters eating the ripe figs in the garden.

El Mirador was a lovely spot that we stayed in with another couple for three days in February. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was tasty. Maria provided us with a map with all the highlights of the city marked off. The B&B was well situated with easy walking to a number of restaurants. If we go back to Valparaiso we would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are staying a couple of days pick a room with a kitchenette.

Regretfully we only stayed here one night. Had we known what a nice place this was we would have stayed a week. el Mirador is a gorgeous heritage home located in the "hills" of Valparaiso with a terrace overlooking the city and harbour - fabulous view. The B & B has easy access to transportation and is within walking distance to the harbour.

Maria was a gracious host who warmly greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the home, showed us the amenities and outdoor area. She speaks a little English and was very helpful with providing information and also had a free map of the City available for us. Rooms are large and airy with 12 foot ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors and trim throughout. The home is surrounded by huge windows all with a view. Beds are comfortable with good pillows and the place is very clean. There is a lovely courtyard with roses and fruit trees that are often visited by a local flock of parrots.

There is a kitchenette for cooking and we felt right at home. Breakfast was continental and was quite good with brewed coffee, fresh cut fruit and freshly squeezed juice. No Nescafe and no canned fruit cocktail.

We really liked el Mirador and highly recommend it to anyone staying in Valparaiso. If you have a rental car its a bit difficult to find as Levarte Street deadends and then continues or re-starts somewhere else. I would email ahead to get directions.

Room Tip: Can't imagine that there is a bad room to be had in the place.

Classic fin de siècle neighborhood house - three wings built around sunny courtyard - open to the downhill overlook. Room was spacious and bright, with private bath and kitchen just down the
hallway. Best of all, though, was the truly warm welcome we received - and breakfast, except for the fresh bread from the bakery just down the street, was entirely home-made: fruit cocktail and jam, with freshly-squeezed orange juice... A winner..!
