“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

This is a beautiful home located in a residential neighborhood about half way between Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. It has views of the harbor. It is located only a short walk from the Portales metro station and both Valparaiso and Vina del Mar are only few short stops. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Veronica, the mother of the owner, (Claudia, which we did not get to meet as she is mostly there on weekends) is a nice lady who made us feel comfortable in her house. The breakfast was wonderful with warm buns and biscuits, freshly pressed orange juice and French pressed coffee with warm milk. It was a great stay and we highly recommend this B&B. It certainly deserves its high ranking on trip advisor.

The cleanest place we stayed in South America! We booked for three nights and ended staying for seven. Veronica very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts superb, including real coffee. Overall, excellent value. Note it is not walking distance to Valpo, but convenient for the cheap train which will take you either to Valpo or Vina del Mar in a few mins.

This is a cute and very well kept little house in a quiet neighborhood. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. You have a nice view over the Valparaiso harbour bay and can reach the beach in few minutes walking. The rooms are lovely decorated. And it was definetely the best breakfast we got in our whole time in Chile, with freshly pressed orange juice, home-made bread, real coffee.

Veronica keeps her home very clean and welcoming and I felt at home during my stay at Valparaiso. She has a cheerful disposition and is easy to talk to, keeping the ambience in the house friendly and conversational for guests. I felt safe in her home and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful, enjoyable stay in Valparaiso. It's also extremely close to the Portales metro station and several good seafood restaurants on the beach.

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!

Thank you very much for your review. We are happy you enjoyed our breakfast and the stay in our house!. Sorry that you experience with Valparaíso was not 100% good, and we will improve the point of giving more information to our guests. Indeed, there are plenty of restaurants around Cariño Porteño (like 10 minutes walking from home), I'm really sorry that you didn't get this information on time. I really hope you come back to Valparaiso some day to make it up to you.

Best Regards,

Claudia

We stayed two nights here. Veronica was helpful and the house beautiful, quiet and tidy. Good restaurant at the bottom of the hill and easy to get the train into either Valparaiso or VdM. Breakfast was great. Good value all around. Sonia & Keith

I travel a lot, both for business and leisure. I have stayed at many, many hotels, resort hotels, B&B's, hostels before. Carino Porteno is simply the best B&B experience I have ever had so far. The rooms are nice and clean, and, most of all, the owner genuinely cares to make each guest's stay an unforgettable experience. And, yes, the breakfast is truly amazing!!!
