We were headed out of Valparaiso on a cruise and could so easily have missed this city (many of our fellow cruisers just transferred directly from Santiago). We are so glad we didn’t as we had a terrific day.
The hotel is lovely and located just at the right level on the hill to be able to walk to restaurants without having to climb. Really special views and a lovely outdoor restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The bed was super comfortable.
We were in room 8 which had a nice living area – more of a junior suite than a room – but did not have a balcony. We found the bathroom very dark and the shower (in the bath) a bit of an undignified clamber to get in and out of. I slid and a week later still bear an enormous black and yellow bruise down the back of my thigh. At night we had the window open and there was some noise from the port but with it shut the room was a bit too warm. Fortunately we had our ear plugs so slept like babies.
The highlight was a walking and public transport tour arranged via Casa Higueras with Macarena. She only works at weekends so we feel very lucky to have had her as our guide. She had such passion and enthusiasm for her subject it was totally infectious. It was great fun to travel on the funiculars and on a local bus. I didn’t think looking at graffiti could be so enjoyable.
