“Best hotel in Chile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2009

This is the best (but not the most expensive) hotel I stayed at while traveling in Chile and Argentina. It's a modern oasis in a great city. My room had 2 levels, a balcony overlooking the town, a small kitchenette, and a great comfortable bed. The owners were super nice. Breakfast was great. I wish I had more time to stay there.

This hotel is brand new, and is very clean and modern. Unlike many of the other hotels in town, this one has floor to ceiling windows with amazing views and a great balcony. There is a small kitchen in every unit. The owners are lovely people, and we spent a lot of time talking to them and getting to know their family. We spent an entire evening chatting with them and their parents in the bar of the hotel one night-- what a treat to get to know some locals. It might be helpful to bring earplugs as the city has many dogs-- sometimes they barked for a long time in the middle of the night. This seems like it has to be something you would experience anywhere in this city. Anyway, we stayed in town extra days b/c we liked the hotel so much. It's hard to find from the street, so make sure you get the map from their website.

Great place hidden amongst the amazing winding streets of Cerro Alegre. Extremely relaxed feel. Amazing view across the fascinating vista that is the multicoloured corrugated iron houses of Valparaiso. Right in the thick of some great bars, restaurants. great for walking to many of the sights.

The staff were also warm, helpful and willing to go the extra mile.

I spent two nights at the Cirlo Armstrong Hotel at the end of last month. I should start first with the city: Valparaiso is much more than you can imagine... beautiful tiny streets in a big number of hills. It is like a labyrinth, but there is no problem when you get lost!
The Cirilo Armstrong is in the Cerro Alegre (the translation might be "happy hill"), this hill is not very far away from the main touristic area.
The view from my room was speechless... you could watch the hole city. The rooms and the hole hotel was furnished with very nice style by the owners (a local architect and a local artist). All the rooms are duplex apartments, with kitchen, living room and balcony in the ground floor and bedroom and bathroom in the 1rst floor. It is very nice with a lot of wood everywhere!!
The breakfast is taken at the lobby and it's great.
