Housed in a converted 1920’s mansion, Casa Higueras is a stylish yet comfortable boutique hotel, and the first boutique hotel to open in the UNESCO World Heritage town.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

Perched on the hillside of Cerro Concepción, this hotel is one of our favourites in Chile. The location allows for outstanding views of Valparaiso bay and the Cordillera and Concepcion Hills.

The rooms feature lots of dark wood flooring and panelling, complimented by minimal, yet well-placed, designer furniture. The hotel aims to combine modern touches with the warmth and charm of the past, and the result is a nostalgic comfort that reflects the rhythm and character of Valparaíso.

The excellent restaurant specializes in seafood and has a very good selection of Chilean wines on offer. There is also a swimming pool and fantastic spa at garden level, complete with sauna and an open air Jacuzzi.

Why we love it
