“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Very nice place to stay. Large comfortable room (ours even had a slight view of the lake); log fire in lounge area when it's cold; good breakfast with fresh fruit juice; about 15 mins walk from centre so quiet location with very good restaurant nearby.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Great little Victorian-style hotel with nice interior. Very good wifi in the lobby and lounge area (the lounge area is large with comfy couches). No wifi in rooms, as expected. Staff was quite friendly and several had decent English skills. Breakfast area is nice, with typical Chilean selection of lunchmeats, breakfast pastries, fruits etc. One morning they offered me fried eggs, not sure if that was normal or not. Parking was included and very convenient for my rental car. Note: this hotel is a bit of a long walk to the center of town, though doable. Easy driving in this area.

My room was in the lower level, so no view, but was comfortable and I liked the bed quite a bit. LCD tv and a nice bathroom with shower. Only real negative is unusually loud plumbing, probably due to the age of the main structure. Bring earplugs.

Perhaps the thing I liked best, thought, is that Kalfu is bright blue with a distinctive Victorian tower that I could use to find it when I needed to come home at night. Nothing else looks remotely like it. Hey, I was on the other side of the world - I needed all the help I could get :)

We had three nights here and really loved the hotel. The weather whilst we were in Puerto Varas was not great, so it was really good to have such a cosy base to relax in. It feels a bit like an Alpine chalet, and the staff were quite happy for us to snuggle up with a pot of tea (and later on a bottle of wine) in the living room.
Our room was in the basement and was on the small side but well equipped and comfortable.
Town is an easy 10-15 minute stroll away - but best of all, just a one minute walk away, at the bottom of the street, is the best cafe and restaurant in the whole of Puerto Varas - La Gringa

Hotel Casa Kalfu at a quiet neighborhood, within walking distance from the centre of town and Lake Llanquiue. The staff is friendly, there is a parking space, and the rooms are nicely furnished, some in the upper foolr with great views of the lake and the town. It;s a good place to reat after long days traveling around the lake or going on about town.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the upper floor, thet have the best views, also quiet and isolated.

We stayed one night here and really enjoyed it the Hotel has a nice charm and the staff are helpful.It is a good location and you can walk to town.
The breakfast was good and the room was nice and it is good value and clean.
The Wi Fi did not work in the room but I found this a lot in a Chile.

Plenty of parking here at Casa Kalfu and it was easy to find. It’s sort of on the edge of town, but only a 10-15 walk down to the centre.

We were allowed into our room a little early and we were on the top floor. The room had a balcony facing the lake and we had a super view of Volcan Osorno – a stunning sight. The room was compact and the décor was quite spartan, but all spotlessly clean and of course, that fantastic view.

The reception, breakfast room and ‘sitting area’ are all pleasantly decorated and the sitting room is the best and only place where there is a strong Wi-Fi signal.

Breakfast – offered eggs cooked to order (great – no undercooked scrambled eggs!), super fruit selection, salads, cheeses, cakes and good yogurt. A good choice of breads and excellent coffee. Plenty to keep you going with very pleasant service.

We must also give full marks to Francisco, who was very kind and did his best to help us with our on-line check-in – even phoning SKY Airline to find out why we couldn’t do it.

This is a very pleasant hotel and we would happily return to it.
