Elegant mansion converted into a boutique property with wonderful views over the Pacific Ocean.
Once neglected and even shabby, Valparaiso has undergone a facelift in the past few years, as elegant 19th and early 20th century houses and mansions are converted into boutique hotels to accommodate increasing numbers of visitors drawn to this atmospheric port city.
Zero is one of these: a converted residence on a quiet street with wonderful views over the harbour. It has a great mixture of classic and contemporary styles: the outside is vibrantly painted in baby-blue with white-painted shutters. Inside, stylish furnishings and bold colour schemes blend with high ceilings, wooden floors and lovely old bay windows.
The nine individually-decorated rooms are furnished with Egyptian cotton linen, LCD cable television and private bathroom. It is within easy walking distance of numerous places to eat and drink. Meanwhile the hotel's breakfast room has super views of Valparaiso, its wooden floors, and glass-top tables adding to a bright and airy feel. A restaurant opened in early 2018 and serves dinner every day except Wednesday. Outside are beautiful patios, wooden walkways and sun-decks, with comfy wicker furniture and terrace gardens.
