“Good hotel except for...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Decent old hotel with 7 rooms in a great location. Nothing fancy. Bed was comfortable, breakfast was fine, rooftop sitting area view was outstanding. So the problem? We had the hotel arrange for taxis to take us to our ship at the port. They arranged private taxis (the official taxis are black and yellow) that are not allowed to drop us at the passenger terminal, of which we had no knowledge. After almost half an hour of arguing on the main road near the terminal and walking to the terminal without our luggage to find no police that day, we got the drivers to take us to the terminal. We also there found out the fixed price fare was about 30 percent too high. When we let the manager know about this afterwards, we got no response.

Stayed November 2012

We found Hotel Manoir Atkinson on a whim and what a lucky find. Our first visit to the Chilean coast and I dont think we could have picked a better place to stay. The hotel is wonderful inside and out and sits in an amazing location. An ideal blend of convenience and beauty. The hotel is perched high above a beautiful local plaza (Anibel Pinto) and is on one of the loveliest streets (Atkinson) that I we saw during our entire stay. From the rooftop you can enjoy a glass of wine and look out all the way to Vina Del Mar. Our room was not fitted to the nines but it was tastefully done and very comfortable. Just down the street you will find numerous cafes and restaurants that offer amazing lunch and dinner options. The hotel staff was very helpful throughout our stay and even entertained my efforts to converse with them in spanish. We didnt want to return to Santiago after our stay in Manior Atkinson and experiencing the charm of Valpo. Beware, If you stay here you will want to come back!

Traveled all through Chile and this was the best place to spend our last few nights in the country. Quiet, nice rooms. Great friendly staff, great breaky, good, safe location, beautiful roof top patio. Close to La Concepcion restaurant which was super nice. The most we spent on hotel rooms the entire trip but well worth it.

This was our second visit to Hotel Atkinson. We found it by accident in 2007. Nice rooms, friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful views. We took TurBus from Santiago to Valparaiso. Good nearby restaurants. We'll definitely return.

We booked this hotel for a two night stay after a cruise from Rio de Janeiro and were a bit conserned about the location. We had no need to worry, the hotel is situated in a completly restored old home and is in a respectful old neighbourhood. We stayed in the top floor room overlooking the harbour, and the price included Champagne and chocholates. The hotel staff were wonderfully helpful and gave some good advice in what to see in Valparaiso. the breakfast room and sitting room was old colinial style, very confortable. The area around the hotel is very safe with good restaurants and bars. It's great to walk down to the town then take one of the areas British Victorian finicular (elevator) railways back to the top otherwise it's a steep climb. If you have time it's worth getting a local guide to show you the rest of Valparaiso also when in valparaiso it's a must to visit Pablo Neruda's house, taxi's will take you close by and it's very safe.

My sister and I spent 2 nights at Hotel Manoir Atkinson! It was perfect! We took the bus from Santiago, which was very easy. The bus was only $30.00 for 2 of us round trip! It was really easy to get a cab from the bus terminal and it was only about $8.00 to the hotel. It is in the best location in the city and we felt totally safe walking around, even at night. We stayed in room number 7, which is the largest room and is considered the suite. We liked this room a lot and used the balcony in the morning and at night. We did look at the other rooms while we were there and they all were very cute, just a lot smaller than Room 7. Our room was located on the 3rd floor with direct access to the 3rd floor terrace and then up to the rooftop terrace. The rooftop terrace was totally amazing and we had wine up there one night. Valparaiso does have a lot of street dogs, which is common in many parts of Chile, but we rarely heard them at night and we slept very well. Plenty of hot water and the breakfast was great! Very European style breakfast, which we liked. I hope to go back to Valparaiso and I would for sure stay at Hotel Manoir Atkinson, again!
