This small hotel is in a very pretty town house convenient for exploring Valparaiso by foot and public transport and near some good medium priced restaurants. The hosts are welcoming and very helpful. They gave us good advice for walking tours and local transport. The hotel is very attractive with antique furnishings in both public rooms and bedrooms .

Beautifully appointed hotel with romantic charms. Our room was spacious, light and full of old world charm. The only problem we had was the heating did not work. The staff were incredibly welcoming, energetic and helpful in making our stay amazing. The breakfast was disappointing, however did not overshadow our experience staying at Somerscales. It is positioned perfectly for dinning... More

Loved this hotel, a great little garden at the front to sit in the sun or shade after a day around town. Comfortable, traditional bedrooms, love all the antique bits around eg old hats on a hall stand! A little roof terrace to get some good views and photos. Breakfast was special, tables laid out with beautifully prepared fruits, breads... More

We stayed in February, 2016, before going on a cruise. Hector was a delightful host and made sure our visit was a good one. Having tea in the parlor and out in the garden was very soothing. Everything in Valparaiso is up and down because it is all built on the side of a hill but the shops and cafes... More

The staff are very welcoming. This is a very comfortable hotel. The bedrooms are well equipped with good beds. Breakfast was a delight. There are many restarants close by. The streets are very hilly. But tere are quirky ascenceurs nearby. Rooms at the front look out over the arbour.

We spent three nights here in January and loved it. There are only about eight rooms, all different, very comfortable and charming. It is easy to walk from here to several restaurants and shopping areas, even find a great empanada around the corner. We were in a nice room next to a large veranda and we made very good use...
