We stayed for 4 nights with Brian and his wife and loved every minute of our stay. It was such an honour to meet such lovely people and for them to open up their home to us. The house was beautiful and I would have been happy to relax there all day! However we also found Vina del Mar to...

The Genross B&B was a perfect start to my Chilean vacation. Brian was waiting for me when I arrived at the front gate, and was full of advice and conversation all during my stay...and it was very helpful to get all the hints in English! Brian and LuzMary are very congenial hosts, asking when you'd prefer breakfast and what you'd...

Hotel Genross, actually a B&B, is in a lovely 100 year old villa, tastfuly decorated and very comfortable; the hosts, Brian a Canadian and Lya his charming Chilean wife make you feel at home from the moment you arrive and are always there to assist and advise on local arrangements. It is a 20 minute walk to the sea side...

We used the Hotel Genross as our hub in Vina, making trips to other parts of Chile and returning for a day or two each time. Proprietors Brian and Leah were accommodating and friendly. The house is a beautiful turn of the century home that has been well cared for and is located within easy walking distance of the city...

I posted a review when I returned but don't see it here so something may have happened to my computer. That is why this is so late. I was a solo traveler in Chile. Booked a stay at the Genross and was met by Brian upon arrival. One of the nicest, most helpful proprietors I ever had the pleasure of...

Our B and B owner, Brian Genross, was outside to welcome us to his home, which he assured us would truly be our home, too, for the next three days. The Hotel Genross is a lovely house, which is over 100 years old, located up a hill from downtown Vina del Mar. This makes it cozy and set apart from...

Arrived from Santiago via bus then a short taxi ride to the Genross. Brian was waiting for us and suggested a wonderful restaurant Cap Del. Nice walk, great food, full moon, the ocean right out the window. The Genross is spotless, great breakfast and a nice opportunity to ask questions to an English speaker.

We spent 3 nights at Genross and were delighted. It is clean, bright and spacious. The proprietors are fabulous - friendly, knowledgeable and talkative. Credit cards are not accepted, though, so I had to make a daily trip to an ATM in order to accumulate enough pesos to pay for our 3 rooms.

Recommended by Marilu's B&B in Santiago. Close to all you need, easy train trip to Valparaiso. Wonderful, relaxing experience. Spent many hours at night sipping wine and talking with Brian and Luz.

We came to Vina del Mar after edgy Valparaiso to find Brian and Lea at the Hotel Genross helpful and welcoming. We felt at home, from the beautiful breakfasts (fresh fruit, absolutely delicious coffee, hot bread) to the sunfilled common rooms furnished artfully with comfortable seating, lots of books and paintings, and a sense of peace throughout. The 10-minute walk...
