Popular budget hotel with a bright blue wooden façade and cosy rooms.
With its charming exterior inspired by traditional local architecture, Casa Kalfu is a popular budget choice. It looks like a large, rambling Chilean country house, with the unusual addition of a coat of bright royal blue paint (its name means 'blue' in the Mapuche language). Inside, the 14 cosy rooms are unpretentious, yet appealing, with simple furniture and a few Patagonian handicrafts. Downstairs, you'll find a homely breakfast room and there's a selection of places to eat within a 10-minute walk.

Excellent place to stay, comfortable and stunning views of the volcano though we suspect this may change when the building work across the block is completed.KB, Esher
A reasonable hostal.GM, London
Beautiful old-fashioned hotel with character.RT
Stayed two nights, three nights apart. First room was quite basic and small. Second room much better. Is a fairly simple hotel - but clean etc, breakfast adequateSA Loughborough
"Lovely boutique hotel on the edge of Puerto Varas. We had a view of the lake and also the volcano - when the mist had cleared. Two lovely and very friendly hotel cats in residence in the lounge. I hope everyone there is OK - especially the friendly hotel cats - after the recent eruption of Calbuco."JS, Nottingham
"Had character but room rather small and breakfast a bit limited."PF, Falmouth
