Fodor's Expert Review Somerscales Boutique Hotel

San Enrique 446, Cerro Alegre, Valparaíso, Valparaíso, Chile Fodor's Choice

Perched high atop Cerro Alegre, between ascensores El Peral and Reina Victoria, this palm-shaded mansion has an unobstructed view of the sea. As befits an elegant home from the 19th century, its rambling hallways and wooden staircases lead to rooms of various shapes and sizes. Ask for No. 8, which has lovely French doors and a private terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast. All rooms at this boutique hotel are impeccably furnished with antique armoires and bureaus and beds piled high with imported linens. Dozens of trendy shops and restaurants are steps away.
