My wife and I were spending a couple of months in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. We were traveling alone, beginning in Buenos, and on a circle route ending back in Buenos Aires.
After a lot of hiking, among and on the various types of terrain, dodging ice bergs and glaciers we were looking forward to some "down time"
This precious little hideaway on one of the many hills of Valparaiso provided the ambience we needed without being isolated.
The staff made us feel as welcome as the comfortably layed out rooms. The unique understated elegance of the building was as charming as the neighborhood, which is so perfectly located relative to the funicular to the lower port levels.
We would highly recommend this charming spot.
