PREFERRED HOTEL: Latin Routes clients will receive a small bottle of sparkling wine and upgrade on arrival (subject to availability).
Located in the historic quarter of Valparaiso, UNESCO World Heritage site, Hotel Palacio Astoreca was built in 1923 as a Victorian mansion, later declared national heritage and then recently converted in a boutique hotel after a 3-year restoration plan. Opening its doors to the public in September 2012.
Stay at one of its 23 magnificent guestrooms most with bay or hillside views; enjoy the library, relax at the spa’s heated swimming pool or hammam and why not treat yourself to a massage; try Chile’s finest wines at the cellar or a pisco sour while watching a stunning sunset on the Pacific Ocean from the terrace. Savour the exquisite cuisine with local products at Alegre restaurant.
Its proximity to the famous Yugoslavo pedestrian walk, the Fine Arts Museum at Barburizza Palace, and El Peral funicular – all in the heart of the popular Cerro Alegre hill – is the perfect setting to grasp the natural amphitheatre-like and colourful layout of this seaport city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, a must-visit touristic destination.
This is most prevalent in the reception area where a modern and brand new staircase has been introduced where the original once stood. Careful and clever, original details have now been given a new lease of life with careful restoration of the cornicing to create a beautiful and intimate space.
There are 23 rooms at Palacio Astoreca and each one is comfortable furnished with a king size (or twin) beds and dependent on the location within the hotel can feature balconies, large bay windows and some of the higher categories even feature an in-room Victorian bath complete with luxurious amenities and lavish bath salts.

"For a 5* option in Old Valparaiso you simply cannot beat Palacio Astoreca, and we have visited most of the hotels in Old Valparaiso. A beautiful restoration that the team are very proud of, and for good reason."
