A Treasure Hotel in Valparaiso

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 18, 2005

Just opened in September 2005. It is located on the side of La Matriz Church, the place where Valparaiso was founded, in a former school from 19th century renovated by an austrian architect. In 6 minutes walk are the funiculars and other main atractions of Valparaiso; even one block from a stop of the Trolebuses and bus line O that takes to Nerida´s house..

In certain times of the day (mainly 12 PM - 3 PM) there is pickpockets in the nearby Echaurren Square. Just use common sense and during the night prefer lighted areas.

The rooms are huge (40sq meters/400 sq ft) in two levels and includes beds with duvet cover. Each room have kitchenette, private bathroom, shower, hot water, furnitures. They told me that from october they will also have wireless internet for free.

It costs app. $55-65 per room (1-3 persons), but in september 2005 have $35 as a special opening rate.

I would recommend absolutely to stay there, the closest lodging to the main attractions and even to the market, where to find fresh fruits. But it is also a unique way to experience the feeling of a old city still alive it ´s customs; at two blocks you can find flags from around the world.

And a room of 400sq. mt it is a experience difficult to refuse.

Unique Quality: Each room have natural light coming either from the main windows or windows in the roof. Internet Wifi. In most of the rooms fantastic views of the church La Matriz.

The main characteristic it is how huuge are the rooms (400 sq. ft) incompletely equiped kitchen

Directions: Between Aduana (Ascensor Artilleria) and Plaza Sotomayor/Muelle Prat, at two blocks from Plaza Echaurren Square. Buses stops in Blanco esq. with Marquez, then 3 small blocks to Church La Matriz. Trollle´s stop at Bustamante/Serrano with Clave.
