“A perfect way to experience Valparaiso”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

This boutique hotel has a very homey feel and is located on one of the hills that is so characteristic of Valparaiso. Make sure you ask for a room with a view - the rooms feel more like mini-apartments and come with their own private terrace. My personal favourite has been the room service - the steak sandwich is one of the best I've ever had! The staff here are incredibly friendly and you can use all common areas of the house. I would definitely want to return.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a corner room so the terrace feels a little larger than most.

Valpariso now has a wide variety of hotels on offer but Casa Higueras is the only onw with real style, and has clearly been lavishly restored.

The public rooms are very comfy and the restaurant is very nice as well with a charming terrace with town and sea views. Without doubt this place is an oasis of tranquility for the decerning traveller.

The rooms very in style but are all elegant and very comfortable. Clearly the owners have an eye to detail.

The restaurant is OK but expensive for the offering and there are better places around. Sorry.

Outdoor space is limited but it boast a very nice pool and loungers

Highly recommended for a romantic stay.......

Room Tip: Make certain you request a front facing view of the bay

This 1920’s restored mansion converted into a boutique hotel is a real gem. We stayed in a deluxe room, with separate sitting area, and enjoyed wonderful views across the bay of Valparaiso. Staff were wonderful. The restaurant is very good. The “house” is very interesting in its own right, lots of sitting areas and quite spacious. The location is in the heart of Cerro Alegre, one of the many Valparaiso hills; close to the hotel are some very nice silversmiths and other boutique shops worth exploring. But the really nice thing about being up on this hill are all the interesting houses nearby, in all sorts of condition, some restored, others not, built by British, German, French and Italian immigrants in the early part of last century. Certainly an experience worth having; and the Casa Higueras hotel is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The Deluxe room is spacious with excellent views

We spent only one night at Hotel Casa Higueras in Valparaiso but found it a lovely small and stylish hotel. It has wonderful views across the harbour and the outside areas are stunning. We loved walking down the hill past all the interesting arty little shops and then getting the ascenseur back to the hotel. The restaurant in the hotel was also very good. We had to leave early the next morning to return to Santiago so the hotel brought us in an early cup of tea and made us up a lovely breakfast pack to take. Not many hotels would go to that effort!

Room Tip: Ask for room with a view

Valpo is an interesting town. It's beautiful but a hilly old gal. Thank god we had a fantastic local driver that picked us up in Santiago and delivered us here via a stop in Casablanca! If we were driving ourselves we would have never found it. Chris brought us to the front door even with the road construction. After our short tour of Valpo we were not sure what to expect. We loved the place.

Upon arrival the hostess offered us two different rooms and let us pick. She offered that one was larger than the other but one had a better view. We took the view and the terrace and never used it.

After we got in and squared away we walked the property a bit. Once we found the pool we decided to take the day off. It was BEAUTIFUL and EMPTY. We sat out side and watch the view till sunset. It was hard for us to believe but we never actually walked around Valpo until dinner. We usually walk till exhaustion.

The harbor constantly changes and I found each time I looked it was different. The surrounding neighborhood is ... not luxurious but picturesque. From our view point the colors of the homes were beautiful and never ending. I just kept looking and looking.

We opted for an excellent massage near the pool to compliment the afternoon. We never saw another soul at the pool until housekeeping came to clean up near sundown.

Our room was small but comfortable and well decorated. I noticed old wooden floor panels. Beautiful. The bathroom was nicely done and full of tile. Wifi in the hotel could have been better but it likely hard to accommodate the cliff side location.

Breakfast in the morning was very good and the staff completely professional. You can sit inside or outside on the terrace. Before you leave make sure you see the rooftop terrace. I think it could have pried us away from the pool for just a bit. Amazing view.

Have fun. If you go to Valpo -- this is a great option.

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.
