Yes it is 62 steps from the sidewalk to the room, but being in the room at the top front of the house is one of the most magical I have been in. Room number 8. We arrived early and our room was ready. The rooms on the second floor (American) are huge but I wouldn't trade the top. It has windows on two sides and a terrace overlooking a panoramic view of the bay and the hills of Valparaiso. The light in the room is hard to describe it is so beautiful, not to mention the view. There is even another terrace at the top of the stairs with views toward the east. Hector was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. The walking is easier than it looks. Valparaiso is a magical place.
