“Careful with owner”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2011

The employees of this hotel were very kind and most accommodating. However, please be extremely cautious with Mario, the owner. He is rude, patronizing, abusive to his staff (and wife, who also works here) and dishonest. He tried to play a shell game with our quoted price, claimed to have lost the combination to the hotel safe (where we had foolishly left our passports) and was abusive to members of our group. If you have any other choice in the region, please choose it.

Room Tip: Get quote in writing. Owner is dishonest.

This an old, large house that has various rooms available to mostly Argentinian and Brazilian tourists. The room we were given was dirty, with one low-wattage light bulb. It was hard to see at night, so we could not read. We watched TV instead, but the remote control did not work. Shower was ok with warm water and there were enough dry towels each day.

There´s internet available, but the room is DARK so it´s hard to type.

The help starts to move around at about 630 am each day. The house creaks and the floor squeaks as people walk about.

Breakfast includes ONE cup of coffee or tea, two pieces of toast with jam and butter, a small glass of juice and a yogurt.

Overall, Hotel Vancouver is inexpensive, but I won´t be staying there again. There are plenty of other places to stay around the neighborhood.

Hotel vancouver is within walking distance to the bus station, and the shopping area in Vina del Mar. Just off the main cathedral on Libertad Ave.

My husband and I recently spent three days in Vina del Mar while traveling in Chile. We didn't have an itinerary prior to our arrival in South America, and therefore didn't reserve lodging until actually arriving in each city we visited. After being delivered by cab to a hotel (I use this term loosely) which I can only describe as passable, we ventured out--determined to find a comfortable room for the remainder of our stay. Stopping by a four-star hotel (for those wanting to spend a few extra bucks, the hotel was Hotel San Martin) to simply get an idea of rates, we were given the name of Hotel Vancouver by the kind woman at the front desk. We immediately trekked the five blocks to Hotel Vancouver and wanted to stay, forfeiting our belongings and $40USD to the flea trap we were bound to for one excrutiating night.

Mario, the owner of Hotel Vancouver, was like a second father to us. His hotel is extremely clean, the bathrooms are large and airy, beds very comfortable and clean. Breakfast is included as is free internet service. And, the location is fabulous! His staff, while they didn't speak English, were also wonderful. I can't say enough about Hotel Vancouver: a definite must for those wanting a clean, safe and welcoming hotel in Vina. (Price for private bath, matrimonial was $42USD/night.)
