“Highly recommended for any stay in Valparaiso/Vina”
Reviewed March 18, 2011

I was extremely pleased with my stay at Cirilo Armstrong in March 2011. I was in town for a wedding in Vina but was not impressed by any of the hotels in Vina. This hotel was a much better value with much more personality than any other I saw in Vina or Valparaiso. The hotel is new and has great views. The staff is excellent. Breakfast is delivered to your room every morning and it's very good. The location is about perfect- not completely touristy yet very easily walkable to the tourist destinations/restaurants/etc. The rooms all have beautiful balconies and are lofts. I traveled with a 2 year old and the hotel was very accommodating. There is a full kitchen which is always helpful. The loft does have some pretty steep stairs and dropoffs so if that's going to make you nervous, keep that in mind, but otherwise it's really a wonderful place to stay, a great value, and a great experience.

I highly recommend this hotel in the Cerro Alegre neighborhood of Valparaiso. Everyone who works there is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is modern and comfortable, with amazing views of the city. It was a treat having breakfast in our room. It was quiet and comfortable, modern and trendy.

The previous reviews really said it all. Its perfect! The hotel is admittedly a little hard to find at first. We didn't have a map but after walking around for a bit, asking some locals and cafe staff we eventually found it. There is a small circular suspended sign out on the street about the size of a dinner plate which we had walked past initially without noticing.

We where struck with the 'WOW' factor when walking into a modern spacious foyer and was greeted with a friendly face and a cheery "Buenos Dias"..The staff are amazing and very curtious. All through our 2 night stay they where always fantastic with directions and advice. That includes the day and night staff. My wife and speak Spanish but there a couple of staff members with flawless English so don't despair if you can't speak the lingo.
Room was awesome and we loved the loft containing the bedroom. There is a TV with cable mounted to the wall (not that we used it) and a wood stove down stairs. What really made the place was the floor to ceiling windows. So great waking up with views of the city. The balcony was amazing to be out on at night for all the lights etc.
Maybe the only thing, and its a small thing but the down stairs area in the room is a little plain. Maybe a coloured rug or a painting would be nice but thats just a personal thing and doesn't subtract from the wonderful experience we had.
Breakfast is a simple but perfect combination of Coffee, fresh juice, toast and jam, cereal and yoghurt and fruit salad which you can have in your room or in the common area. I really can't fault this hotel.
If we are ever in town again we will be back.. No question!

We loved our ultra-modern two-story room with private balcony -- the ideal place to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy Valpo's amazing landscape. The staff was incredibly helpful, arranging for messages and offering spot-on directions and dining recommendations. Would definitely return.

We really enjoyed our stay!
Taxi had some trouble finding it at first but friendly Chileans got us there without much delay. The hotel is a steep walk back from town which we didn't mind at all and loved exploring the immediate area, including the many restaurants.
The staff were all wonderful and truely wanted us to enjoy our stay in the hotel and city. We even got a hand drawn map and metro card to make sure we got to the best spots on a day trip to Vina.
The rooms and facilities were comfortable and clean.
This hotel does feel like a hidden secret with it's location, and it is away from the noise of the city streets. You can't get away from the noisy dogs though, but I don't think that matters where you stay (locals seem to agree!) so a pair of ear plugs are recommended!
