Allegretto Bed & Breakfast was opened in 2004 in a pair of neighbouring hundred-year-old houses in the Cerro Alegre district of Valparaiso. Cerro Alegre, or "pleasant hill", is the area of the city where the British and the German immigrants built their houses in the 19th century, and they did so on a grand scale. The ceilings in the hostel for example, are four metres high. Today Cerro Alegre, together with neighbouring Cerro Concepcion, is the area of the city most popular with visitors due to its pretty streets, the high standard of its hotels and restaurants, and the views it offers across the bay and the city. Allegretto is perfectly-located in a quiet residential road, literally round the corner from bars and restaurants. We are also five minutes walk from the funicular railway that connects with the city's business district, and from the various look-out points. The hostel has nine rooms, most with private en-suite bathrooms and, aside from the various antiques, boasts a fully-functioning 1960 vinyl jukebox.
