“Casa Higueras, a perfect stay”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

We booked several nights at Casa Higueras as part of a three week trip in South America and it was our hotel of the entire trip. Not only is the hotel beautiful,a restored historic home set up high the hills, but the staff made our stay absolutely perfect. We arrived at the hotel with some travel issues and the management did everything they could to solve them even though it was nothing to do with their hotel.
Our large ocean view room had a spacious terrace and the room was nicely appointed. The large bathroom was filled with plush towels and high end amenties..
We usually don't dine in hotels but Casa Higueras served exceptional meals on their outdoor terrace.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room.

We came here in part of our honeymoon, we were recommended by another hotel which could not accommodate us. Just as well, really as this hotel far outshone the expectations we had. Staff were extremely helpful, the room was a good size, with a nice terrace overlooking the port.
Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom a good size and well equipped.
The star must be the restaurant though, one of the best meals we have had in our tour over the last two weeks, highly recommended to eat there and is good value considering the quality of service and food we had.

A real feeling of a country house in the city, very fine restaurant, lovely views over the city at night from the restaurant terrace. Room a bit on the small side, good sized terrace but could have benefited from being a bit bigger and maybe could do with airconditioning in the rooms.
Fascinating city, full of surprises and Casa Higueras is a good palce to base yourself for easily touring the city.

A charming and atmospheric hotel in the heart of the Historic area of Valparaiso. Rooms are good, there is a splendid pool and the restaurant is recommended for dinner. (There are also good restaurants and bars within 10 mins walk) Unfortunately, the breakfasts are dull and uninspired.
The staff were friendly and helpful, but we found it surprising that quite a few did not even have the basic English words for what they were serving (though there are some good English speakers on the staff.)
The house is on many levels on a steep slope - there is a lift, but if you have difficulty with stairs, this is not for you (nor is Valparaiso).

I liked CH a lot, especially its fine restaurant. It is definitely a boutique hotel, and, as I was on business, I did miss some big hotel conveniences (for example, there was no coffee available when I had to leave for an early flight--but the hotel graciously packed a meal "to-go"). Booking and cancellation rules were also much more complex than would be the case at a big chain. Still, the staff was great. The views are phenomenal. Let's be honest--Valparaiso is not much of a town; it looks much better from afar. Up close it's gritty and somewhat sad without any of the sidewalk cafes and lovely promenades you come to expect in the cone of South America. So having this little charmer of a hotel was refreshing. The walk back up from the port is a bit of a challenge--and wrong turns take to you into some dodgy neighborhoods. So do be careful on that score. But the pool looked great (too cold though when I was there in November). Rooms are traditional, and a bit creaky, but still up to a high standard (as are the bathrooms). Even if you don't stay here make the effort to have a meal, as the food is terrific (and fairly priced). Plus, as mentioned, the views are spectacular.

Room Tip: There can be music at the restaurant, so if you are early to bed, pick a room that doesn't face...

We recently stayed at Casa Higueras in Valpariaso just before new years eve of 2011 and had a truly wonderful experience. Very well positioned in easy (if hilly) walking distance to a good chunk of what valparaiso has to offer the hotel was very clean and well run, the staff were exceptionally helpful and polite, and nearly all spoke very good English. Particular note were the waiters in the restaraunt, very proffesional and easily the best service we had in all of our Chilean trip. Great view out over the bay from the pool\spa, good breakfast, and a great pisco sour :). If I had to pick one issue the hot water ran out once during our stay but it was easily forgiven.

Highly recommended.
