We travel a lot and this is one of the best hotels we’ve stayed. Casa Galos looked plain from outside but the inside exceeded our expectations in every way. The location on the Cierra Alegre hill is perfect, safe, close to many restaurants, artisan shops, best street art places and other attractions. Breakfasts were excellent, eggs made to your taste, fresh fruit, great coffee, it felt like visiting your grandma. The hotel has a rooftop terrace with breathtaking views of the town. We stayed there one night and sipped wine and watched the sunset. The hotel’s design is tasteful, with reused wood and a lot of natural light, full of character. Rooms are well appointed and big. We believe that our room was the best. We stayed in Room # 5 ( Bellavista). It’s a corner room with sweeping panoramic views of the town. At the end of the day we were running to our room to enjoy the views. The bed was huge and comfortable with good reading lights. The bathroom was enormous with an excellent shower and a big stand alone tub, great for evening soaking. Our loft also had a kitchenette with a cooking top, microwave, refrigerator and a supply of tea and coffee. We used it to make a cup of tea at night. But above all is the staff at Casa Galos, always helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, absolutely brilliant. Besides, all receptionists speak excellent English!

Gorgeous hotel, with large stylish rooms, excellent breakfasts and a huge roof terrace overlooking the city. The perfect place to spend a few days in Valparaiso. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful.

I don't know where to start. 3 nights here in heaven!!! Fabulous location (in Templeman, so plenty of street art around to explore Cerro Alegre & Cerro Concepcion...old Granny is around the corner and We are not Hippies/happies just down the stairs); cafes, bars, restaurants within 100mtr radius; galleries nearby. Our 3rd floor room was spacious, clean and quiet, great window views, tasteful décor (thoughtful touches) with the most comfy bed in all of South America (for us, that is!!). Wonderful hosts (thanks Ingrid & Max), supply of maps, helpful hints and shortcuts to funiculars. Breakfast was included in room rate and it was freshly perfect, served in the little dining room downstairs.The Rooftop Terrace is amazing. Everything about this place is a 10 plus plus plus. After the steps, steep hills up & down and a good workout on the calf muscles, Casa Galos was our special home!! Gracias.

We had a perfect two day stay at Casa Galos. The hotel itself is splendid, the rooms are large and very comfortable and the rooftop terrace offers a spectacular view of the city. The service is equally splendid, and it is clear that everyone was going the extra mile to ensure that we had a perfect stay, which we did! We highly recommend it, and hope to go back again!

My husband and I spent two nights at this lovely hotel in early January and loved everything about our stay. We got the upstairs loft room - large, oval shaped, very nicely done up with a of natural light pouring in. It also had a tiny kitchenette. The place was centrally located on the hills within easy walking distance to many restaurants, shops, bars. We felt totally safe venturing out despite the civic tensions that had plagued Valparaiso and other Chilean cities around that time. The staff was extremely warm and friendly and informative. The day we were checking out, we had to take an early bus to Santiago so the staff set up our breakfast in our room the night before. That was so very thoughtful. One of the highlights of this place was the rooftop deck. It was so very special to sit up there at night and admire the twinkling lights of the city while sipping on our wine! I am so very glad that we did not follow our friends' advice and cancel our Casa Galos booking (due to the trouble in Valparaiso) and find a hotel in neighboring Vina Del Mar. Have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this hotel. Great location, wonderful staff.
