Lovely hotel, a little small, but the views couldn't be beat and the location is quite picturesque. I stayed on the top floor so nothing got too loud. The bed/closet space were totally fine and the bathroom was immaculate - looked like it had been recently redone. While the top floor was preferable, be careful of the staircase as it's REALLY narrow (I had to go down it sideways and was extra careful in heels!) But the very helpful staff will assist you with luggage, etc, so it all works out.
Location-wise, the Gervasoni is on one of the most picturesque overlooks in all of Valparaiso so there are always a lot of tourists during the day. They dissipate at night so it's not too loud. But it's in a very cute and very safe area - always felt comfortable venturing out alone at night as long as I stayed within a few blocks of the hotel. Other areas didn't feel as hospitable in the evening!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel is the fruit of lengthy restoration work to recover one of the homes of greatest cultural value in the hills of Valparaiso, measuring more than 11,000 square feet. This house was built by European immigrants circa 1870. The imposing building, now transformed into a boutique hotel, uniquely portrays, through its welcoming setting, the lifestyles of the generations of families that lived on the hill. The house’s architecture takes you back in time to the mode of life at the end of the 19th century. Luxury refurbishings concordant to the comforts of a five-star hotel interweave discreetly throughout the patrimonial air in the house, creating just the right cross between tradition and modernness. ... more less
