Imposing 1920s mansion on one of the city's most beautiful hills: an excellent location with fabulous views and many nearby restaurants.
This imposing 1920s mansion is located on Cerro Alegre, one of the most beautiful hills in Valparaíso, where the city's wealthy families built their homes. Its location is second to none, with numerous cafés and restaurants nearby.
Casa Higueras has 20 bright and airy rooms with spacious modern bathrooms. The main difference from room to room is the size and the view – some look out to the hills and some to the bay; a few have a private terrace from which to admire the vista.
The hotel's five floors languorously slope down the hillside – the entrance is on the third floor. There's a breakfast room and restaurant, and on the basement floor is a swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. The roof terrace has stunning views of the city and the bay.
