My sweetheart and I spent 4 nights from Monday to Friday in the first week of April 2013. The loft apartment was very beautiful and in great condition. We could tell that everything inside was decorated tastefully in a way that used the space very well.
We received fresh bread for breakfast at 9 AM every day. The bread was left outside our door for us to pick up when we were ready. The other ingredients were put in our fridge and on our kitchen table the day before when the loft got cleaned and our beds made.
There is someone on staff 24/7 and each person was incredibly helpful and kind to us as we needed special help due to having been robbed of all our valuables and IDs in Santiago the week before reaching Valparaiso. We asked the bank to mail new credit card to this hotel and it didn't get until after we left yet Juan-Carlos was incredibly helpful in calling FedEx to make sure the card arrived.
Take note that there is a little farmers market that springs up once or twice a week a block further up on Galos Street. So if cooking with tasty vegetables is your thing that is very is easy to do. There are also restaurants of all types a few blocks down hill from Galos Street in case you prefer eating out. The area also felt very safe and well lit, which was a welcome feeling compared to some of the more remote hills of the city.
