Valparaiso and Vina del Mar: Palacio Astoreca

Palacio Astoreca

The two striking buildings composing the luxurious Palacio Astoreca, with bold red and white façades, have made a bold impression on the hills of Valparaiso, Chile’s foremost port. This is style, comfort and service at the very top of the range: our clients repeatedly recommend it.

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’s haute cuisine.

What our experts say

Perhaps what stands out most in my memory of this hotel was the view over the colourful houses and port of Valparaiso, especially when seen from the terrace at sunset. The property feels bright, stylish and modern inside but original architecture features and the carefully restored facade give a sense of the Victorian mansion it used to be.
