Hotel Acontraluz, Valparaiso Chile is one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in.
Situated in the neighbourhood of Cerro Alegre, high up behind the hustle and bustle of Valparaiso, this boutique hotel is a real haven in this eclectic city.
The hotel is decorated with art works from local artists in a kaleidoscope of colour – which I absolutely loved. 🙂 Beautiful vases, flowers, a piano, huge beams of oregon and oak, old sideboards – this hotel has a warm, welcoming style that will make you feel instantly at home.
The hotel is a family business and the service and attention to detail was second to none.
We were greeted by Javier, a gorgeous young woman who couldn’t do enough for us during our stay. She shared all her local knowledge and was never too busy to help us with a restaurant choice or to phone us a cab.
Our room was lovely with comfy beds and plenty of space for us to unpack some of our gear and spread out after a long day.
The tariff included breakfast, which was served buffet style each morning on the ground level. We sat outside on the verandah, enjoying the food and coffee whilst admiring the beautiful bay of Valparaiso.
The ‘stand out’ of this hotel was the lounge area situated on level three. A huge verandah with a wicker cane lounge was the perfect place to sit and catch up on emails (the hotel has wifi), enjoy a glass of wine and just relax, taking in the beautiful views.
So if you’re heading to Valparaiso, check out the Hotel Acontraluz – you won’t be sorry 🙂
Thank you to all the staff, especially Javier, for making us feel so welcome.
