Nicely situated at river bank with view over to the town of Valdivia. It’s in the proximity of an industrial area but is quiet, nothing disturbing. Rooms are spacey, clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful (except one receptionist). Breakfast is very good. A car is beneficial, parking on site is provided.

Unfortunately located in an industrial district, next to a ship yard, it’s a bit of a hike into the original town/universities which are across the river. That said, it’s set up for conventions and, if they don’t have one, the pricing is right and the facilities are very nice. Not a Kempinski but the breakfast is far, far better (and...

We stayed at this hotel some 6 years back and enjoyed the spacious river facing rooms. This time around we only had dinner at the hotel's restaurant. We are vegetarians and enjoyed the Spinach Soup, Empanadas de Queso, fettuccini and Purée de papas. The food was flavourful and priced very reasonably. We visited on Christmas Day and received great service...

This hotel is a little older, however it is well kept. The staff is nice and goes out of their way to help you. The food is not the greatest but it is ok. You can enjoy the view of the river from your room, with quiet atmosphere as you are on the other side of the river. We almost...

A very nice hotel on the other side of the river right in the middle of the ship building industry.I would definitely stay here again. The decor is tasteful. Shopping and restaurants are only 10 minutes away on the city side of the river.

We went with a large group for dinner at this hotel after a nice boat ride in the river at night. The appetizers were really good and diverse (seafood, empanadas, quiche, etc). The entrees were however, boring and not that tasteful. Had a good time tho.

This is a very nice hotel and very well located. Close to the river, clean, polite staff, good breakfast. Swimming pool and gym (I was not able to use but there was there). Definitely a very good option.

Valdivia is a pretty city, not one of the nices in the south of Chile but its an important business center. The city has lovely rivers that pass through with great sights. This hotel is actually located with a spectaculat view of the river and the city. However. location is probably just one of the plus. Its a big hotel...

If you visit Valdivia, and you do not really need to go downtown, then this is your best option. A quiet hotel ready to accomodate meetings and congresses, with nice rooms and internet service. The breakfasts are great, but what else would you expect in Chile - that is a common feature. The restaurant inside the hotels serves perfect dishes,...

This hotel still lives in the 1960s. It's in an industrial estate and a car or taxi is needed to get into town. We were there during the local festival and catering broke down as the hotel was overwhelmed and unable to offer. Us any dinner. Male waiting staff were rude. The buffet breakfast was poor. The rooms are fine...
