Fodor's Expert Review Fauna Hotel

Pasaje Dimalow 166, Valparaíso, Valparaíso, Chile

As the name suggests, Fauna stays true to its natural surroundings: the floors, stairs, and handrails are made from recycled native wood, adobe is used generously in the architecture, and the span of the hotel's interior street-side wall, extending some two floors, is actually the exposed containment wall originally constructed to keep Cerro Alegre standing. The three-story house, dating back to 1870, is a short walk from the ascensor Reina Victoria. Many of its rooms, as well as its restaurant, with its large windows and long outdoor deck, offer unobstructed views of the bay. Room No. 5 has a view of the hill's rock foundation, which juts in. The Fauna Restaurant, right next door, also has an impressive view from its second-floor terrace.
