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).
What our clients say

Wonderful old building with a history and great location. Some practical aspects on the restoration, our room was small, the cutlery was not entirely practical in the restaurant(too much emphasis on the design rather than use)JW, London
Very good location and we were well looked after. Hotel has no change or exchange facility and requires extras payment in exact or more USD or CL peso.EC, London
Super building and accomodation with good service. Really enjoyed being there - an oasis from the grubby atmosphere of the city! Did not use the restaurant but had excellent meal at La Conception nearby.SB, Milnthorpe
Nice room with a decent view. Bizarre furniture, especially the bed. Nothing for veggies except a salad sandwich.PH, St. helens
