“Barebones, but sufficient”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

We stayed at the Monterilla for one night while in Vina/Valparaiso. The room was very basic; nothing to write home about. Probably a bit overpriced, but it's very conveniently located and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also nice.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

We stayed here five days in february in a kind of apartment with two bedrooms, bath and kitchenette, very comfortable for four people and with nice decoration. The apartment had an exclusive stair, so we were out of noises of other rooms; although it faces the street, the only noise we heard was the seagulls early in the morning (the hotel is one block from the sea), but we took it as a new experience.
We never had trouble with parking (into the hotel, very safe) even at week end.
The localization was excepcional, very central, near the sea and the beach too.
The only trouble we had was that there wasn't wifi the last 2 or 3 days (and there wasn't a computer in the lobby for passengers); it seemed to be some trouble with their internet service provider, but that kept us incommunicado (we are from Argentina, and in addition, our mobile telephone company didn't work properly).
Breakfast was excellent in quality and quantity.
In short, it was a nice place and undoubtedly we should return to this hotel.

Stayed for one night in March (off season), price was very reasonable for a clean room that included a good breakfast and parking (very important in Chile); it is true that there is no A/C which could be a problem some nights, although temperature and humidity are normally not extremely high in Vina.

I really don't know how this hotel gets as high a recommendation as it does. The hotel is clean, neat and safe. The staff is helpful and their English is passable.

So what is the problem? As one of the reviews stated it is more of a youth hostel. The rooms are clean but spartan. There is no A/C and no ceiling fan. It can get incredibly hot in the room. The hotel is very close to the casino. The action continues late into the night. With open windows it is impossible to get a full nights sleep - car alarms, car honking, sirens, etc. It goes on all night and you need to have your window open because of the lack of A/C.

Stayed for 2 nights in February. The location is good, staff are very helpful and friendly and breakfast is good; however, the room was bare bones, although it did have a modern bathroom.

We visit Chile often, and have been staying in this hotel over the last 3 years. The location is outstanding - close the the Plaza, Casino, good restaurants, etc. We would not hesitate to stay here again. The only comment is that the hotel is beginning to look a little tired.

Hotel is in good location if you want to be near the action. Our room was street side so some noise, but not bad. Unique set up with small kitchen area, two single beds and a separate room with queen and flatscreen tv with many choices of channels. Bathroom and shower relatively small,but overall nice. I would stay again if price were less. Music festival week so premium rates. We paid 200.00. Helpful staff, basic breaKfast, no wifi in room, but available in lounge area.
