“Friendly and Chic Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

I just was sleeping in this hotel. Its Friendly and Chic.
Good service, nice rooms and great Breakfast.
You feel the South of Chile Spirit. Is very close to the "Costanera" so you can walk from the Hotel.

We had a large room, at the end of the corridor on the ground floor, which was large, clean and quiet (no lake view). Since the rooms are on several different levels and the house is a bit higgeldy-piggeldy, perhaps the views etc. will differ a lot. Staff very friendly, breakfast good and plentiful, although the tables fill up so arrive early! Located on the higher, middle part of the town, between the two eating/shopping centres (5-10 mins walk from both)

Room Tip: At the end of the corridor

I had a fairly rainy time of it my three days in Puerto Varas, but it was always nice to come back to Casa Kalfu. Good breakfast buffet, very friendly atmosphere, comfy top floor room with a view. No wi-fi in the room, so you had to go to the lobby. (Not a problem for me, but might be for some people.) A beautiful 10-minute walk to the center of town along the coastal path (or the street, if you prefer), and a couple of nice restaurants and cafes within a few blocks.

Stayed December 2012, traveled solo

Casa muy bonita, la gente muy amable y siempre dispuestos a ayudar. La habitacion muy comoda y muy limpia. Casa Kalfu está muy cerca de la costanera y tambien cerca del centro (10/15 minutos caminando) y tiene una bonita vista.
El desayuno es delicioso.
La unica cosa no tan buena es que en la habitacion no hay wifi - wifi solamente en la sala.

I had a great stay at Casa Kalfu.
Everybody is very kind and helful; delicious breakfast, nice view. The rooms are very nice and clean and the staff makes it a priority to make you feel at home. Although not in the center of town, it is well located between downtown (10/15 minutes walking) and the beautiful "costanera".
There's free wifi but only in the living room.

We had a great stay at Casa Kalfu, great service, yummy breakfast and spectacular views. The rooms are wonderfully appointed and the staff makes it a priority to make you feel at home. Although not in the center of town, it is well located between downtown and the beautiful beach bordwalk section of Puerto Varas. A magical city, and a great place stay while exploring it

Casa Kalfu is really charming. It was decorated really nicely and felt homey rather than "hotely." I'm guessing the decor was meant to be German, but it reminded me more of a Scandanavian lodge. The rooms were nice, along with a helpful staff - there's not much to complain about. I would recommend this place for sure.

Also, there's a nice cafe/restaurant less than a block away called The Gringa. Good soups, salads, sandwiches, coffee, juice, and wine. The downtown area is probably a 10 or so min walk away. Check out another restaurant called Cassis near the beach/pier on the main downtown road.

So, this is for those looking for a clean, friendly, and very comfortable place, a 5 minute walk from center of town,and the lake. We were budget conscience, and we were very happy with everything. Yes, there are fancier places to stay in PV,but for us we thought it was just perfect.
