A striking, contemporary boutique hotel offers luxurious accommodation overlooking the pacific Ocean in Valparaiso.
The two striking buildings composing the eye-catching Palacio Astoreca, with dazzling red and white façades, have made a bold impression on the hills of Valparaiso, Chile’s foremost port. This hotel is a fine base for the city, perfectly positioned to explore its labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways.
With 23 guest rooms it is quite large to be called a boutique hotel, but it is idiosyncratic enough to fall into that self-appointed category. Bedrooms look out over the port to the ocean beyond, and are decorated in a contemporary style with slatted wood in pale washed-out colours befitting a seaside establishment. The facilities and amenities are comprehensive and top-rate: there is library, a spa and an al fresco terrace where you can savour the restaurant menu (open high season only).
