We took a quick getaway here from Santiago less than a week after the tragic fires hit Valparaiso. We are glad we went through with our plans.
The hotel is $10, 15-minute cab-ride from the central bus station, and is located about a 300 meter walk from the main road by Cerro Alegre and another 100 meters from a funicular. The rooms are exceptionally large, quirky and comfortable. We had one of the lowest priced rooms, and although we had a window, there wasn't a view. Still, the room was comfortable. Some have complained about the lack of TV, but they have free, fast wifi and our 2-year-old daughter was content with the iPad/Kindle. The restaurant is great and the view amazing --- especially in the afternoon. You see all the way to the harbor/coast and all the surrounding hillside. There is even a telescope to us. The food was good and interesting and affordable. The included breakfast was wonderful --- fruit, scrambled eggs, fresh-squeezed juice, homemade bread and jams. The hotel was glad to call a taxi to pick us up for our departure. The location is excellent. It is about a 10-minute walk using the funicular to the "plan" of Valparaiso; the immediate neighborhood is dotted with tiny restaurants and shops. The rooms were very clean and a good value. There was some noise from the restaurant above our room, but nothing noticeable.
