Casa HiguerasValparaiso, Chile
A number of new hotels have recently opened in Valparaiso which have greatly improved the quality of hotel accommodation in the town. One of the first of these was the Casa Higueras which opened in 2005 is located in the heart of the Cerro Alegre, the most visited of the historic districts on the hills behind the port.
The style of this restored 1920s mansion, perched on the hilltop, is that of an elegant but cosy boutique hotel with dark panelled walls and well furnished rooms. There is an outdoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi located in attractive, well-planted terraced gardens with a great view down over the port. The drawing room/library area and the restaurant also benefit from the view, and there is space to sit outside on the panoramic terrace to dine, or just to relax during the day. The Mediterranean cuisine in the restaurant is of a high quality and the service throughout is excellent.
The 20 modern rooms, arranged over 5 floors, vary in terms of size and outlook and we would can request specific ones according to your preference. We can provide you with room details for you to choose from (although we recommend getting a room with a bay view if possible).
