The one place to stay when in Valparaiso
Just a few recommendations to make your stay more comfortable:
- The hotel is an old (very old) building so it comes with all the "perks" of old buildings: poor central heating, lots of stairs (> good exercise), poor soundproofing, yet beautiful and the team will make sure you're as comfortable as possible.
- The rooms on the second floor are probably a little more quiet than the ones on the first
- Our room (#5 if we remember correctly, with a street view) was a little small for 3 so if you are traveling with a child we recommend you book something a little bigger (and the rooms with an ocean view are totally worth the extra penny, the views are great!)
- Anna, Ettien, Rex and the rest of the team (> the gentleman at breakfast whose name we didn't get!) are purely and simply amazing. They make you feel right at home and will make sure you have a great time in their quirky city.
- The freshness of the products used for breakfast (try the cheese and tomato omelette and the cherimoya juice!)
- The gorgeous terrace, ideal to relax in the afternoon
- The location, on a very quiet yet central street, close to restaurants and shops, where it is very easy to park
- The dinner is a must try at least once. The dinning room at lunch and dinner is rented out to an external restaurant (Apice) whose chef was trained in France. Food and attention to details are excellent. Make sure to get the Valrhona creme brûlée topped with clementine sorbet. If they don't have it anymore, request it, it's a killer dessert :D
- My son sleeps in a baby cot and it was nice for once to have the baby cot ready when we checked in. It was really cute with an appropriate pillow and blankets.
