We stayed in Garivalpo for two nights in September 2010. The place is amazing!
The owner of the bed and breakfast is the most valuable asset - she and the whole of her family would go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. In addition, they are always keen to assist you with tips about places to visit in Valparaiso as well as retaurants, pubs, etc., so do not hesitate to ask. If you are interested, staying in Garivalpo provides an opportunity to understand the Chilean culture and way of life better - it is a pleasure to speak to the owner and other members of her family who always seem to be there for you, whatever the question may be.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable - we stayed in the larger room with an amazing view on the city. The other rooms, although slightly smaller, seemed to be of the same high standard. The breakfast was very good and filled us up until dinner.
Garivalpo is located on a hill overlooking Valparaiso. The trolley-bus stop is located just five minutes walk away, and it takes just ten minutes on the trolley-bus to get to the main attactions of Valparaiso. You cannot get lost when taking the trolley-bus. And, although they look a bit old, taking a trolley-bus in Valparaiso is a very enjoyable experience in itself.
The bed and breakfast is also offering spa services. If you are interested, make sure that you use this opportunity as the prices are considerably lower than what you would normally expect. The family providing the services would come to Garivalpo at suitable times for guests (even late in the evening).
Staying at Garivalpo is more than just staying at a hotel or bed and breakfast - it is an excellent experience!
