“Would have liked to stay longer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

We really liked this hotel and would recommend it for your stay in Puerto Varas. We only stayed one night as we were passing through on our way to Santa Cruz, but we would have happily stayed longer here. The staff were very friendly and helpful suggesting a lovely day trip to some nearby waterfalls. Our room was spacious and very clean, with good wifi. Breakfast was good with plenty on offer including delicious cakes. The location couldn't be better in the centre of town

The Weisserhaus is a family hotel with a very good location, only one block from the lake. Walking distance from shops, sights and restaurants. Parking is free, but you have to arrive semi early since it gets crowded.
Rooms are basic and adequate size, super clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and big.
There is free wifi included and worked really well.

Breakfast is included and nice and they offer home made kuchen.
This is an excellent place to feel just like home. Jorge and his family are very nice and always are trying hard to please their guests. It`s like staying with family. Thanks for the nice stay!

This place is well-located, has wonderful guest service, provides a comfortable room and a good breakfast. Top-notch in service, comfort and location. Well-priced too. There's a restaurant/cafe across the street (el barista) that is nice to go to as well.

Puerta Varas isn't very big but there are some hotels out on the edge of town or at the top of the cliff. This is two blocks from the lakeside and two blocks from the high street. Reception staff all spoke good English which is good because my Spanish is average. Buses run from PV to other towns on the lake and to Puerto de Montt (nr the airport) and are very cheap so you can easily get around

Room Tip: Both our rooms were excellent.

The Weisserhaus is in a good location one block from the lake (other buildings block the view, however) and near many restaurants and shops. Parking is provided by the hotel, a definite advantage in this part of town because during the day street parking is monitored and requires paying an attendant. My wife and I stayed here for three nights in mid-March, ‘13.

The hotel is a small family-run operation and the name demonstrates the strong German heritage of this part of Chile. The architecture and decor, however, don’t really convey this connection.

The small reception area opens to a small lounge area where breakfast is served, and beyond to a stairway that leads to the second floor guest rooms.

Our room (#8) was moderate in size, comfortable, but had little character. The furnishings were simple and utilitarian, with a comfortable queen bed and also a twin bed (though we had booked just a double room), two night stands, and a built-in closet with a safe. Although the room was generally clean the carpet was stained in high-use areas and need to be cleaned or replaced. We weren’t bothered by street sounds or by people talking in other rooms, but the plumbing was noisy and we could clearly hear each time the tap was opened next door or the toilet was flushed. The bathroom was adequate sized with a pedestal sink and a tub/shower combo.

The included wifi worked well in the room and in the common areas.

Breakfast was barely adequate and definitely the skimpiest of any hotel during our month in South America. A few pieces of fresh fruit (one morning none at all), a piece of coffee cake, toast and jam, dry cereal. The coffee was so weak I supplemented it with packets of instant. Not a great way to start the day.

All in all, it seemed to us that the Weisserhaus did not offer very good value despite its low price, and there are likely better options in Puerto Varas for a bit more money.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night following a flight from Santiago and before the lakes crossing to Bariloche (1 day trip). We paid about £48 per night for a double room in early April 2013. We had a large double room with a spare single bed. A great thing about this hotel is the location - very close to the lake and a nice bar nearby (Cafe Barista with a great happy hour!!). Staff were friendly but they didn't speak a huge amount of English. The room was clean, comfortable and the shower powerful and hot (which is much needed after a long bus trip and flight!). Only slight niggle was the room was very cold when we arrived but it warmed up after a while....

This is small, very well kept up and clean B& located perfectly for exploring Varas. It's just a few blocks from the lake. The owner and his daughter were extremely kind and helpful and their command of English was excellent. The rooms are clean, but VERY small unless you get a room for 3. The single beds are VERY small. It was very noisy in the front where our room was. Breakfast was paltry.
In searching for another possibility while there, we came upon 3 excellent fairly large hotels whose prices were the same or LESS than what we were paying. Given that it is high season, we had no choice but to stay put. It is a good choice for overnight, but no more.
