We spent three nights at the Gran Hotel Gervasoni and found it an excellent choice of hotel for Valparaiso. It is in a perfect location for exploring the Cerro Concepción and the Cerro Alegre and is in walking distance of many great restaurants, bars, shops, etc. The Ascensor Concepción is right on your doorstep to get down to the main part of the city. The hotel is certainly a quirky building with character, perched on the side of the hill and therefore on many levels, the rooms all being different from each other. We had a lovely room with a small balcony and window overlooking the city and the harbour, the bathroom was on the level below. The room was very attractively decorated, the bed was comfortable and, despite being on the main floor of the hotel the room was not at all noisy. We really enjoyed the view from the room although the balcony was not large enough to use.
We found the reception staff friendly and helpful, a parking space was found for our car right outside the hotel, the breakfast waiter was extremely attentive and the owner of the hotel, who was around most of the time, was charming and gracious.
Breakfast had a great selection of fruit, good eggs that were replenished frequently and the usual breads, meats and cheeses. Coffee was not the best but there was an espresso machine as well. We did not eat in the restaurant as there were so many others close by to try. Overall it was a very pleasant stay.
- 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
