My partner and I stayed at El Mirador at then end of our journey and we were extremely happy with our choice. Maria the owner is incredibly friendly, open and great at what she does. Her breakfasts are wonderful to kick off your day and she can give you all the info you need for getting around town. The property...

Me and my parents stayed at the Mirador for two nights and we really enjoyed it. The hospitality was awesome and we felt really welcomed. The house is a beautiful old one and the family put so much effort in it, which you can see. After spending the day in the crowded tourist mountains it's like coming back to a...

This is a large and sprawling B&B around a courtyard and has a lovely balcony patio with a view of the city and ocean. The owner is a lovely woman who takes good care of her guests. Since we spoke no Spanish, she insisted (gratefully by us) on taking us on a dry run with the bus system. She wouldn't...

I stayed at El Mirador only one night (Thursday 11 August 2016) but found it very comfortable. It is opposite a school. The accomodation is in a beautiful,100-year old mansion, with bedrooms opening onto a sunny courtyard with roses, etc. Large, wooden paned windows allow the sun to stream in and the owner (Marisol / Maria Soledad) grows attractive flowing...

This was our first accommodation after arriving in Chile from the UK. Maria made us very welcome and we communicated well enough despite our poor Spanish. Room was comfortable and accommodation secure, with fabulous views from the back terrace. Reasonably close to Artilleria funicular and regular, cheap buses to down town. Breakfasts were lovely- better than on offer at some...

This was comfortable and reasonably priced. It was friendly, caring and very ready to go to the trouble to give that extra help. A good Chilean breakfast was also provided. Care was taken by the proprietor to inform on the various city attractions.

Very friendly and helpful host, comfortable rooms and good breakfasts. A little out of the way but very frequent bus service to downtown. Sometimes no hot water. Excellent coffee nearby (Cafe Republica). Restaurants in the area are okay but not great.

Dear guest, I need say sorry. When you were gone we saw the hot water was off. But the other guest who used the external bathroom turned it off. I will look for a solution so this doesn't happen again. Thank you for telling us.

I stayed 2 nights here and was very pleased. The rooms were decorated in an eclectic style that I enjoyed. I really liked the high ceilings. Breakfast was simple but good quality. The owner also joined in the conversation with our group and several tourists from other countries. The view of the city from the outdoor balcony was spectacular, especially...

I stayed at this bed and breakfast with my family in early January 2016. It is located on a quiet street not far from the historical center of Valparaiso. The views of Valparaiso from the back terrace are pretty amazing- not so impressive in daylight but wonderful at dark. There is a charming courtyard with rose bushes and a place...
