“wonderful house with view of sea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Hotel Sutherland House is absolutely charming, spotless and has fabulous views over the city and harbour. The owner was very helpful and was kind enough to take the time to tell me all about the house and Valparaiso and to suggest activities. This Hotel is a wonderful place to stay, easy walking distance from all the interesting places and I would recommend Hotel Sutherland to anyone. A real highlight of my holiday!

Room Tip: Sea view is well worth it

Stayed in the Hostel part with seven friends for one night when we visited Valparaíso, could not fault the staff or room. Well priced and very modern looking. The bar is very nice, and the breakfasts are absolutely superb! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

European-style old mansion on hillside overlooking the bay of Valparaiso on some of nicest real estate in the city. Beautiful woodwork throughout building. Immaculately clean and quiet. Room view of whole panaromic scene was breathtaking. The owner/manager is a retired professor of physics--a real gentleman who could not be more attentive. Other staff members equally helpful and professional. Full service breakfast. A real highlight of our travels through Chile.

Hotel Sutherland House in Valparaiso excells in all respects: Great rooms with a magnificent view over Valparaiso. The breakfast is very substantial and delicious. But above all: The owners and the staff are cordial and welcoming in the most sincere way. This is the place to stay in Valparaiso.

We loved the Sutherland House during our 2 night stay in Valpo. The hotel is in one of the few upscale neighborhoods (Cerro Alegre) which was nice for walking to and from restaurants safely at night (and there are several great ones about 10 minutes down the hill on Almirante Montt and the side streets off of Montt.)

The taxi from the bus station is a little under 6,000 pesos but after arriving the hotel we used the city buses 607 or 612 a few times. They stop right in front of the hotel and will take you all the way to Vina del Mar for only 450 pesos. They are a great way to see the city and its people and definitely the way to go to/from Vina.

As others have noted, the hotel is a beautiful old restored house with modern renovations in areas including the bathrooms. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast each morning on the terrace was a highlight of our stay in Valpo. Claudio speaks almost no English but he had a couple friendly college age boys working the front desk who do speak English.

I recommend walking to Pablo Neruda's house from the hotel as it is a flat 25 minute walk across the top of the mountain on Avenida Alemania past a number of interesting houses and with lots of great views of the city and harbor.

We stayed here for 2 nights during shoulder season, and almost had the hotel to ourselves. The hotel is a renovated family property that stands out amongst the neighbouring building, and has excellent views across the city (not just of the docks, as offered by the hotels further down the hill). We didn't speak any Spanish, so we're only able to understand a very small portion of Claudio's and the Sutherland story.

Sutherland House is a 5-10 minute walk to the top of Cerro Alegre / Concepcion, a great area to wander around with a fair selection of restaurants, some shops, and plenty of colour in the buildings that scatter the hillside. Be warned that the area is all relatively steep and stepped, so if you can't handle hills you probably can't handle Sutherland House or Valparaiso.

Sutherland House is about 6000 pesos from Terminal bus station.

Our room had a balcony and excellent views across the city, we loved being able to watch the sunsets, evening lights, and dawn. There isn't a safe but the drawers are lockable. The room was small, basic, clean, with an exceptionally comfortable bed. The bathroom, equally basic and easily a little on the small side, but it did the job. Generally the space suited us as we were travelling light with just two small duffel bags; larger cases might have been a struggle.

Breakfast in the mornings was a simple selection, with the option of eating out on the small terrace. This was a great way for starting the day, and the coffee was good.

The area itself is quiet and we generally slept really well, but the plumbing in the building is a pretty loud. If someone in the building uses the shower or toilet in the middle of the night; you're going to be woken by the shuddering pipe work.

Service can be a little Fawlty Towers.  It's over 50 steps between reception and the roadside gate (which needs to be electronically released by reception), and several times I had to run back up to remind them to release the gate.

Overall, this is a fairly basic offering (more B&B than hotel), we found it a restful place to stay and enjoyed the convenience to Alegre / Concepcion.

After a 13 day cruise, we stayed at this wonderful place. Claudio is a superb host. Comfortable beds, good breakfast, and the view is simply amazing. One must go up over 60 stairs but, the view is worth it. Sunset from the terrace is spectacular. Claudio is most helpful with anything one might need like transfers or tours.
