“The real Valparaiso Feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2009

I've been in Valparaiso many times. The reason I keep coming back is its architecture, the hills, the houses, the steep streets, the smell (not always great), and the people.
Artilleria 199 is maybe the best kept late 1800's house to remain standing. The owners are really nice and tell the visitors all about the process of turning this old house in the best hostel in Valparaiso. Our room had a nice soundproof window overlooking the seaport (the busiest one in Chile) and the immense Pacific Ocean, antique furniture (great bed!), and a modern impeccable little bathroom.

Casa Hostal 199 is located at the top of a hill with spectacular views out the rooms' windows. The house is a beautiful old Victorian, well kept and decorated with cool original art by the owners and their family.

The rooms were immaculate and extremely spacious with comfortable beds and stylish modern bathroom fixtures.

Don't let the location "on the edge of town" bother you - Valparaiso is small and very easy to get around by bus, taxi and on foot.

The owners are a delightful couple who give great advice regarding restaurants and sights to see. Breakfasts provided include wonderful fresh baked bread, REAL filter-drip coffee (hard to find in Chile!), and fresh fruit juices.

Casa Hostal 199 was the high-light of our stay in Chile!

This is a lovely place to stay: very clean and elegant and with stupendous views across the bay. Alejandro and Trinny take care of you and are full of ideas so you can get the best out of Valparaiso. You have to do the walking tour with Mike, the German Pirate. I don't normally like tours but this was fantastic. Many thanks to all of you!

I loved this place. Everything about it, from the amazing friendly welcome from the owners, the breakfast, the views, the art work, the decor. As a solo traveller they just made me feel so at home.

Casa Hostal is highly recommended. I stayed in room number 4 (single). Magnificent views and a comfortable bed. I could stay in bed a see the sunrise everyday. Make sure to eat breakfast outdoors and try the fish soup at the blue house next door. The hosts are wonderful people. They will make the best out of your stay. Don't miss the Hamburg restaurant downtown.

I stayed at the room "Flores guajiras" on a Winter day. The house is beautiful and cozy, and the room itself has a magnificent view over the harbour and Valparaiso bay. Its romantic decoration with flowered wallpaper, iron furniture and white linen made my stay very pleasant. It was a cold day outside and I was received with a hot tea into a warm house. The guests (Alex and Trini) were kind and nice, and gave me valuable tips about the surroundings. The morning breakfast was diverse: fresh fruit and juice, yogurt, milk, coffee, tea, fresh bunny bread... The house is located on the top of a hill, next to the funicular and one of the belvederes of Valparaiso, quiet accessible. I would definitely recommend it to a friend. Actually, I already did it!
