“Amazing hotel, great city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2012

I loved everything about Casa Higueras. The location and views are absolutely stunning. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The restaurant on site is good if you want a fine-dining experience and there are many casual eateries within walking distance that are quite good. The lounge is luxurious and has incredible views of Valparaiso-- great spot to relax with a bottle of wine after a day spent trekking the hills of the city. Same goes for the infinity pool. The staff goes above and beyond-- everyone was friendly, accommodating, and super helpful with travel plans, recommendations, etc. Casa Higueras is a beautiful and modern escape amidst a city that is interesting and full of character, albeit a bit run-down.

We only stayed for a couple of days at the start of a South American holiday where we wanted to visit Mendoza so chose a flight to Santiago and thought we'd take in Valparaiso which sounded interesting.
Well it is interesting although more run down than we expected and was made really interesting by hiring a great guide(see German Pirate).
Arriving at the hotel after seeing the state of some the city was a wonderful experience. A lovely small hotel in a good location with good views down to the port and great service. You could walk around this part of the city with no problems although a couple of days would be enough. Shame we didn't get to use the pool which looked good but the free internet was handy just to let folks know our first impressions which were very favourable (of the hotel).
Very hilly and lots of colourful houses and graffitti around the city. The hotel is as most things on a hill and a few steps in the hotel which is on a number of levels but worth it.
No aircon in our room but we asked for a fan which was no problem.

Room Tip: Ours was great, number 2 I think; on the same floor as the restaurant and pc's.

We booked several nights at Casa Higueras as part of a three week trip in South America and it was our hotel of the entire trip. Not only is the hotel beautiful,a restored historic home set up high the hills, but the staff made our stay absolutely perfect. We arrived at the hotel with some travel issues and the management did everything they could to solve them even though it was nothing to do with their hotel.
Our large ocean view room had a spacious terrace and the room was nicely appointed. The large bathroom was filled with plush towels and high end amenties..
We usually don't dine in hotels but Casa Higueras served exceptional meals on their outdoor terrace.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room.

We came here in part of our honeymoon, we were recommended by another hotel which could not accommodate us. Just as well, really as this hotel far outshone the expectations we had. Staff were extremely helpful, the room was a good size, with a nice terrace overlooking the port.
Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom a good size and well equipped.
The star must be the restaurant though, one of the best meals we have had in our tour over the last two weeks, highly recommended to eat there and is good value considering the quality of service and food we had.

A real feeling of a country house in the city, very fine restaurant, lovely views over the city at night from the restaurant terrace. Room a bit on the small side, good sized terrace but could have benefited from being a bit bigger and maybe could do with airconditioning in the rooms.
Fascinating city, full of surprises and Casa Higueras is a good palce to base yourself for easily touring the city.

A charming and atmospheric hotel in the heart of the Historic area of Valparaiso. Rooms are good, there is a splendid pool and the restaurant is recommended for dinner. (There are also good restaurants and bars within 10 mins walk) Unfortunately, the breakfasts are dull and uninspired.
The staff were friendly and helpful, but we found it surprising that quite a few did not even have the basic English words for what they were serving (though there are some good English speakers on the staff.)
The house is on many levels on a steep slope - there is a lift, but if you have difficulty with stairs, this is not for you (nor is Valparaiso).
