Casa Higueras ● Valparaiso ● Chile
Originally built in the 1920’s, this attractive mansion underwent a thorough restoration in 2006 before being re-born as Valparaiso’s top boutique hotel. Situated in an ideal location in the historic Cerro Alegre neighbourhood, the hotel enjoys a privileged spot with excellent views of the hillside and the bay. There are several spacious communal areas including an indoor lounge with lovely big windows and beautiful tiered gardens featuring a spa, sauna, outdoor jacuzzi and a spectacular infinity pool.
“This sophisticated boutique hotel combines a fantastic location with unbeatable panoramic views and one of the best restaurants in Valparaiso.”
The rooms are spread over four floors, some of which come with views of the bay and private terraces or balconies. All rooms feature a minibar, room service, wifi and LCD TV but only some have air conditioning. The Maralegre seafood restaurant is widely regarded as the best in Valparaiso and takes advantage of the special location with a superb terrace offering sweeping views of the hillside and Valparaiso bay below.
