Lovely clean room, if a bit on the small side. Our bathroom was across the house from our room but was always clean and was no problem that it wasn't ensuite. Hot shower and modern bathroom.
Breakfast was great, loved the homemade biscuits!
The house was in a quiet area but was a bus ride from town. No restaurants close by that we found.
The owner was nice but a bit quiet. I would have liked a bit more information given to us without asking, especially about the area - suggestions, do's and don'ts. I know you can get that from a guide book but I like to speak to people when staying in someone's house like that.
I was a bit disappointed with Valpariso. I had heard such positives about it, but felt as if I was in the wrong place, it didn't live up to expectations. We ended up getting the bus back to Vina del Mar because we liked it better!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This is our home. It was built in 1956 by my father and I have lived here since those years, raised my daughters and over time, tended close ties with this quiet residential environment, in the best sector of Placeres Hill. A space built up with all the affection of the world, we want to share it with you while visiting Valparaiso and its environs. Quite simply, a home away from home. Welcome.he house is located in Rosa Riquelme Street, Placeres hill. This is a neighborhood located between Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, just 5 minutes driving to either cities. It has plenty of access to a range of public transport accesses such as bus, taxi, and train. Moreover, we are located just three blocks from Santa Maria University and the INACAP institute.In walking distance from our home our guests have a wide range of gastronomic possibilities. The centenary restaurant El Parrón (meat) and Portofino, Doña Tatito, Los Compadres y Caleta Portales all provide excellent sea food. There are other popular options near the beach like the Fisher’s man restaurant. Also, located close to our house is the Paseo Weelwright, a nice two kilometers pedestrian walk that connects with the Muelle Barón and offers beautiful views of the hills and the coast. ... more less
