We enjoyed our 2 nights at Casa Higueras. It was a little difficult to find (we drove from Santiago), due mostly to the winding roads on the hill. I recommend having an iPhone map (GPS is available, of course, but pre-load your map as there was no cell coverage for us), along with a paper map that the hotel can email to you ahead of time. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with a view of the port (we had a nice balcony). Valparaiso is a working port, so you'll hear the clanks and motors all night if you keep your window/balcony door open, but it's not disruptive to sleep. The bathroom was clean and modern, but the bathtub is very deep and difficult to get into if you're short.
The breakfasts were nice and served in a dining room with a view and on a balcony when weather allows. The wifi was available in our room (#10). We were happy to pay the $30/day extra to park our car in a locked parking lot so we didn't have to worry about it. We did use the car once to get to Pablo Neruda's house, but otherwise walked. The staff recommended excellent restaurants for us. We did not get a chance to try the hotel's restaurant, which is supposed to be good, but we loved our other 2 choices (Pasta e Vino and La Concepción.
The hotel is a little pricey, and we also saw a room in a nearby hotel, Zero, which was also very nice and less expensive.
We enjoyed walking around Valpo, and recommend it.
