Due to the recent political unrest there were few foreign tourists in Valparaiso hence we were the only people staying for 4 nights. Great for us because we had the corner apartment with an outside deck overlooking the whole city and port all to outselves. Our kitchen had the basic equipment so we were able to make tea/coffee and cook an omelette to eat on the terrace on a couple of evenings after heavy sight-seeing/walking days. There are several little grocery-type shops nearby for supplies. The large and interesting naval museum was 10 mins walk away as was the cable lift - beats a long walk! The Quattre Ventos restaurant is near the lift and great for aperitifs on the terrace - both inside and outside have terrific views and the cocktails are very good. Mariesol, our hostess and owner, is a delightful and charming lady who took great care of us, supplying information and lovely breakfasts. Her large, older house, beautifully kept is within easy commute to the city below via the cable lift. The location is ideal and the view is special. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and can only encourage people to visit Chile and Valparaiso - we felt very safe and saw no demonstrations.

What a beautiful find in the middle of an older neighborhood. The apartment contained a small but quite user- friendly kitchen, and a nice bedroom and bathroom. The view was amazing! Marisol was soooo helpful. She provided a GREAT breakfast, too! Her directions allowed us to walk around the city freely! We'd definitely return should we visit Valparaiso again. When we stumbled upon a bad day in the city, everyone there came to our rescue. Her staff as well as her neighbors assisted us! A REAL JEWEL!

Pleasant B & B in a rather run-down and very scruffy part of Valparaiso. Hostess is a lovely lady who provides a very nice breakfast ans loads of advice. Limited free parking is available but I suggest you try and reserve a space (there's only room for 2 cars). The building is very quirky but its very clean and there is plenty of space. The area it s in is very run-down very dirty, as is a lot of the city. We were warned by our kind hostess not to walk around with expensive cameras, etc and we took this advice. We didn't have any problems but it does look like a dodgy area, particularly at night. Whether it is I do not know. I do recommend staying here despite this.

This old hacienda has several big rooms with high ceilings surrounding a courtyard with a huge shared balcony overlooking Valparaiso harbor. The proprietress is kind and generous—she let us stay quite late on our flight day. Exceptional experience for the price.

We had very good 2 nights in this nicely managed hostel with an amazing view over Valparaiso. The owner is very helpful and we appreciated that we had great discussions with her about Chile. We strongly recommend this place, the cost for value is worthed and even it is a bit away from the main touristic places, you can walk or take bus very easily. It is also perfect if you have a car as you can park it safely behind the gate. Try it you will not regret it! Thanks again for your great hospitality. Matthias and Karine.
