As part of two weeks in Chile, I was advised by a Chilean friend to spend several days in Valparaiso. He also recommended finding a place to stay high up on one of the famous hills. He suggested the Cerro Concepcion and we found this hotel.
From my initial contact with the owner, Don Claudio, it was clear that our stay would be special. Located on the top with a fabulous view, especially from the roof deck, the Manoir Atkinson enjoyed an ideal location. There are numerous restaurants nearby and descending to the downtown is a quick walk or elevator ride.
The house is charming, with an attractive reception/dining area adjacent to the desk.
The rooms are of varying sizes and views, and prices. Ours was on the top floor with easy access to an outside balcony and the stairs to the roof.
Claudio, the inn keeper was enjoying a second career and he and his wife were involved in all aspects of running the establishment. Breakfasts were home-made, generous and often featured special pastries. Claudio was available for consults on the best tourist destinations and provided drivers to take us to" La Sebastiana", the local Neruda house, and on an excursion to wineries and to Isla Negra to another of Don Pablo's residences at a very reasonable cost.
The striking Paseo Atkinson on which the house is located sits just above a number of famous tourist spots, including the Cinzano restaurant and the Plaza Anibal Pinto.
The warmth of our hosts was exemplary.
