A beautifully restored mansion on the hillside in Valparaiso.
At this Relais & Chateaux-operated boutique hotel you'll get a real sense of place, as well as fantastic city and harbour views from its elevated position. The city is dotted with colourful Victorian-style mansions – this is Chile's answer to hilly and bohemian San Francisco! The hotel itself is housed in two of these historic buildings – one of which is a palace and national monument – both of which have been lovingly restored. The restoration meant the addition of a small spa with hamman and massage room, and a swimming pool.
In regards to location you will be right at the heart of the city's historic district and within walking distance of the bars and restaurants that can be found here (remember this is a very hilly city – something to take into account when deciding on your eatery of choice!). There's also a restaurant on site where you can enjoy local and international dishes; while for drinks head to the Piano Lounge Bar or book a tasting in the Wine Cellar.
There are just 23 rooms here including the comfortable Standard and Premium Rooms and the more spacious and highly recommended Junior Suites. The latter are located on the second or third floors and have a living area with sofa bed.
