Hotel Latitud 33 Sur
Ranked #18 of 35 Hotels in Valparaiso
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights and were hoping to relax and enjoy the city! The location is great and the general decor of the hotel is amazing, however it is very noisy. We stayed in room 7 and could here people walking, going to the toilet , taking showers, going up stares, etc. It woke us up several times during the night and at 6:30 we were 'forced' to start our day as we could not sleep anymore due to the noise. Breakfast is very weak, not many options and difficult to get coffee (which is much needed). The owner/manager is friendly but the staff doesn't speak english and it is difficult to communicate. The front door of the hotel is kept locked and sometimes we had to wait for 5+ mins to get someone to open it for you (even during the day!).

I have been to Valparaiso a couple times before and I have stayed in both hotels and hostels, but I would recommend Latitud 33 Sur to anyone coming to Valpo because it is a beautiful boutique hotel at the price of a hostel. We stayed in the grey room after the receptionist showed us 4 rooms to choose from. Each one was very different, so if you do not like your room, see if there are others available. I believe we were the only people staying in the hotel, so obviously it was very quiet, but I do not know if the sound insulation is that great. The receptionist gave us lots of advice on where to go and the breakfast was great. It was a wonderful hotel for a romantic getaway with my fiance and the location was excellent. The earthquake destroyed many of the streets around the hotel, but it was still easy to walk to restaurants, art galleries (about 6 in 2 blocks from the hotel) Mirador Atkinson and Gervasoni with the funicular. The art gallery on Templemman at the end of the alley has a great collection and I would recommend stopping in.

Latitud 33 Sur is a renovated house in the centre of the oldest part of Valp. It has been tastfully done, in a minimalist sort of way (exposed beams and brick), but it is light and airy. The location whilst central is down a pedstrian ally way, and to be honest, if you wee a nervous traveller you ight feel a bit uneasy returning a lone at night. That said, my impression was that Val (and indeed Chile in general) is very safe.

The rooms are individual, comfy bed, ensuite showers - all clean and functional. I was rather cold at night - and they could do with double glazing as there are lots of street dogs that brk (incessantly ) at night.

The reception staff (Marcella in particular) were relly friendly and helpful, recommending how I got the most out of my short trip to Valp and Vina del Mar.

Latitud 33 is a small hotel with a lot of caracter and right in the middle of the most picturesque district of Valparaiso, close to a lot of good restaurants. Very clean, good breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff, went out of their way to help me get my camera repaired when it was damaged in a mugging attempt - there are some areas of Valparaiso where you should be extremely careful, they will also advise you on that.

The bottom line is they refused to respect the law in Chile that if paying with a foreign credit card the tourist does NOT pay local tax (IVA). Management acknowleged the law but would not explain to us why multiple different rooms with different prices in chilean pesos had the same price in US dollars - ie they are ripping tourists off. The reception staff were fantastic and agreed with us and offered us the best price she could - then on check out the manager at first refused to acknowledge her error, and then also tried to charge us much more than the price that was agreed to at check in!!!!! something I hate!........ anyway
The rooms have lovely colour schemes, but are very noisy both late at night and early in the morning.
The location is excellent and deserves far better attention than the managers are providing.

We stayed at Hotel Latitud 33 Sur on the strength of one review (another was posted during our stay) that said the place was a gem, and I must say, we agree wholeheartedly! Two things stand out for this hotel: the design and the staff.
The design is a remodeling of an old building in a historic district. Each of the ten rooms is different, each fascinating with unique touches. We were in no. 10, which was very comfortable (once we got the heat turned on...May is late autumn there). The multi-story structure has lots of touches that are well thought out.
The staff members were superb! Some spoke excellent English, others did not, but each was unfailingly courteous, helpful, and welcoming. They were helpful beyond what would have been expected, even assisting with the local police (we got a parking ticket). Their suggestions for restaurants and other destinations were very valuable.
The location is in the middle of Cerro Concepción, one of the best districts for getting the flavor of the town. It's tricky to find, so follow the map posted on their website exactly...don't try to second guess, or you'll get hopelessly lost, like we did. They also have free internet and a comfortable and stylish commons area.
Only downside is street noise...the local cobblestone streets make quite a sound in even light traffic, like rushing waters. I found this oddly relaxing, though not all would do so.
