Ube runs a great spot in Garivalpo- comfortable rooms and lovely breakfast. She is also willing to give plenty if info on Valparaiso itself.
B&B is a 10 min walk from bus station and about 25 mins walk from old part of town.

My boyfriend and I have traveled a lot and stayed many places and this is definitely one of the best stays yet! The Bed and Breakfast is located on an enchanted hill quite close to the bus station (easy walk). The location is optimal with a great view of the city and with a look over the ocean. One of the best features of the rooms are the fantastic beds and pillows, which are extremely appreciated after a long trip. The rooms are also quiet and dark allowing a relaxing stay. We planned to stay 4 nights however stayed five.

Breakfast is delicious as well, fresh fruit, bread, juice etc. and the best part is, it is prepared fresh whenever desired! (11 or 12 in the morning) I didn't have to wake up early to get breakfast, which is one of the best parts of vacation- sleep and a great breakfast.

Service is spectacular, well-run and very friendly.

Room Tip: There are two options for matrimony, the one that is slightly more has the most enjoyable view- pay...

I can’t begin to tell you how positive our experience was. The beds, linen, etc were exceptionally clean and most confortable, with the name Garivalpo embroidered on all the linen. We felt very special. The accommodation was very clean and Ube the female owner was so friendly but not intrusive. The breakfast was great, catered to your taste, with real brewed coffee, fresh fruit, bread, etc. She helped us when we asked for help and gave us tips on where to go and what to see. It was only 10min walk from the bus terminal, close to shops and transport (metro to Viña del Mar) but far enough to have a nice quiet night. Beautiful views.
We stayed at Garivalpo B&B for 3 nights during May 2013, 5 people. We occupied 2 different accommodations. A single room with a double bed and own bathroom and the loft (small apartment) down stairs with 2 bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, lounge.
I would recommend the Garivalpo b&b to anyone wanting to stay in a beautiful, clean and homely atmosphere away from home.

Room Tip: The loft is a small apartment with master bedroom, single bedroom, kitchenette, lounge with a futon...

A very friendly and warm hearted lady runs this place, truly as if you were a guest in her own home.
Cotton sheets and down filled duvets, and an excellent breakfast, plus plenty of advice on getting the best out of the town make you feel truly welcome. The location is good, only ten minutes walk from the bus station and twenty minutes from the port but away from the main traffic.

We had an amazing stay in Garivalpo around new year Eve, with a bottle of champagne in present!
The room was extremely cozy overlooking to the cerro and the sea, The lady is the kindest person ever, always attentive to any problem and always happy to help. The breakfast was very good and adapted according to our tastes day after day.
Just perfect! Thank you again

Very attentionate host and great breakfast. The location is great because it is close to the centre, yet far enought to make it a little quieter. We decided to stay the 4 of us in the appartment, which is great for 3 people (one double, one single bed). There is also a futon for an extra person...which is not comfy at all. The kitchen did not have a stove so not great for cooking but the included breakfast was definetly better than any other B&B we`ve tried in our 7 weeks long trip in Chile. Pretty and very clean.
