This is a quaint and cosy boutique hotel in the heart of the old town of Valparaiso. An excellent spot for those looking to enjoy the city, its views and experiences.

Excellent location. Beware of using Google maps to access this hotel, it may take you down some ‘interesting’ roads. Floors creak a bit

A 7 stars historical and romantic location
This has been by far, the best option as a stay in Valparaiso. With their peculiar colonial setting and decor, this place is magical. Their rooms are comfortable yet historical. The breakfast is nice and satisfying. The staff is absolutely delightful. I would say, in fact, this is the best hotel I have stayed in Chile. The view towards the sea and the Cerro Alegre. Wonderful location for either business but especially for personal travel. 10 starts and more!

Seriously, stay here
Location, location, location. This place is AWESOME. If you're looking for a great Valparaiso experience, this is the spot. The top floor has a balcony that looks out over the bay and Valparaiso, awesome for both sunrise and sunset. The property sits on one of the main hills in the old part of Valparaiso and is walking distance to anything you'll want to see. The employees were awesome, and most all spoke English. The hotel itself is gorgeous with lots of character, and the room was comfortable. Parking is a bit sketchy. You'll either park on the street, or they have a lot nearby you can pay to park in. I chose to park on the street, but was worried about the car because of all the break-in stories. A few things could improve: the breakfast left a lot to be desired (cold meats, cheeses, grains and yogurt). The coffee was good though! I also thought the shower might be tricky for some people to get in and out of. But really, you're not coming here for the breakfast or the shower, you're coming here for the view and Valparaiso! I will be back!

Perfect location for a boutique with a view!
Booked to spend the last 3 nights of a 3 week Chile Argentina tour here. Booked a room with a balcony and the view of the bay. The view is stunning, with the balcony perfect for lazily watching the sun set with a glass of wine. The hotel as a whole is nicely furnished, with various bits of furniture. Fruit and drinks are available as required for free from the downstairs open lounge diner. Staff very helpful, including an elongated translating series of phone calls trying to sort out a hire car problem! The hotel is on a narrow ish street (though not the worst that there are around there) and there is usually a couple of places to park. They also have access to a couple of 3rd party-owned off road parking spaces which cost 15000 peso/night (book ahead). The location allows you to instantly wander out into the historic, heavily be-muralled Cerro Allegre. Most of the nicest parts are within an easy walk, easier going down than up obviously! Breakfast is fairly limited, which reflects the small amount of people staying. Scrambled eggs are available if you ask. All good for me.
