We spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel at the end of December (apologies for the delayed review).
As mentioned previously, the hotel is well located in a nice neighborhood with galleries and restaurants within walking distance. There is a funicular stop just around the corner and down several blocks.
We were in Room 18 which has a huge bathroom and a "parisian view" of the harbor, large free-standing tub, separate shower, high quality towels and lots of hot water. Comfortable bed, large couch. Plenty of room for us and all our luggage. The room is above the entrance to the hotel but the street was quiet at night and we slept fine. No issues with mosquitoes. Furnishings throughout the hotel were beautiful, nice public space areas with alcoves and large windows. We felt like we were guests in a private home.
We had lunch with the hotel’s signature Fig Pisco Sours and a crab casserole that was out of this world. A duo played soft contemporary jazz the night we had dinner, adding to the ambiance. Breakfasts were the nicely set out buffet style and eggs to order were included. Prices in the restaurant were competitive, portions fair in size, the large wine list featured Chilean wines, and the service was spot on.
The pool area and spa were clean and had well-tended lawns, plants, and lounges. In the afternoons, staff came by with fruit on skewers and chilled water. Drink and snack service was also available.
From arrival to departure, we received attentive and helpful service from the staff at the Front Desk, especially from Dina. She was able to score us a reservation at Pasta y Vino on short notice and answered all our questions with a smile which was much appreciated!
We were very pleased with our choice of hotels in Valparaiso and highly recommend Casa Higueras. You will receive gracious hospitality in an understated luxury setting, complete with awesome views.
