Brilliant introduction to ChilePosted Oct 14, 2014
Doris and Carolina were extremely hospitable and told us lots about Chile. Breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. Nothing was too much trouble! Easy to get to town centre and sights on foot but recommend taxi on way back up the hill. Very good value for money.

Staying at Grandmas housePosted Jul 16, 2014
Cons: Less stuff in rooms.
Location: Beautiful view from the hill.
Great value but a little cluttered like grandmas house. Lots and lots of antiques all over the place. Super friendly ladies running the place and helpful info. Nice to be in the hills over the city.

Great view!Posted Apr 12, 2014
We were catching a cruise and had a night to spend in Valparaiso. Wanted something unique to the area. Found this lovely old house....now hotel/bed and breakfast. The building is close to 100 years old and high up the mountain. The house is full of family heirlooms almost to the point of clutter. Doris is a lovely young lady who runs the B & B with her twin sister. She went out of her way to assist us in whatever we needed or wanted. She picked us up from the bus terminal and took us to the pier. The rooms are decorated in Victorian Style and have great windows that overlook the city and ocean. Breakfast was tasty and ample. I would definitely recommend to those that like to get acquainted with a new city.

Very nice hotel with a lovely sight of ValpoPosted Apr 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
The only complain I could have is that it is a bit on the expensive side, but the rooms are all very nice and clean and most have a nice view of Valpo. Owners are very friendly and the breakfast they serve is very complete. It's easy to get back to the hotel after spending the night bar hopping; just take a "colectivo" (shared taxi) from Plaza Italia and tell the driver to drop you off at an specific ascensor (ask the hotel owner for the specific name). If you are new to Valpo and get there by car I would suggest arriving when there is still daylight as the streets up the hill are very confusing and you will need to ask a local for directions.

Fabulous hostesses Carolina & Doris.Posted Mar 26, 2014
Location: Good workout going up and down the hills.
Have never felt so welcome. These two ladies have done wonders with this house. If you are into antiques you will be awed with what they have. They couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely see them again. We were there in the fall and are sure if you are there in the summer the flowers will be spectacular.

Visit march 2014Posted Mar 18, 2014
Pros: Friendly owners
Cons: Reduce the clutter and provide hot water. Local street noise can be a problem
Location: Ok for an overnight
Just like pictures advertised. The owners love their grand house and it shows. Remember it is a house. Dining is far away however the sisters prepare a nicely served breakfast and will serve up a lovely chowder and sandwich upon request. Valporasio is a place to visit once but the view from the patio is lovely.

DisppointingPosted Jan 28, 2014
Pros: The view
Cons: remodel the house
The hotel (it is a bed & breakfast) is at the top of the mountain. The road led us to the hotel was very narrow and steep. Very very very hard to drive. There is no sign on the house indicating it is a hotel. We had to stop to ask someone in the neighborhood (shaddy) to find the place. Once we got in and found that the hallway had old and dity carpets. Everthing is old in the house. The view from the house was excellent though. However that was not the hotel I was expecting. We did not want to stay there anymore. I asked the manager or the owner if I can cancel the booking. She refused and charged us one night without stay.

Likely one of the best B&Bs in Cerro La CruzPosted Nov 30, 2013
Pros: Doris and Carolina were both very nice and extremely helpful. They treated us like family/friends. They're also pretty good with English!
Cons: Update/repair a few pieces of hardware/fixtures, as necessary, to get everything in top working order. Keep up the professional and personal touch!
Location: Convenient, ten-minute walk down the hill to the flat area of Valparaiso. Near restaurants, a cathedral, park, and other forms of transportation.
Overall, very positive experience with this hotel and its Staff (Doris and Carolina). The neighborhood around this B&B is kinda shady in appearance but during the day it felt safe and in the evenings we'd simply take the collectivo, which is like a lower cost taxi at about 450 pesos/person (like $0.90 USD). When heading to the Grand House we were worried about the surrounding environment. The house, however, has been well taken care of and it shows. When you finally enter the house and see it, you will breathe a sigh of relief.
