Hotel Palacio Astoreca
historic old town
The design-driven, 23-room "hotel de charme" Palacio Astoreca occupies a resplendent 1920s-era Victorian mansion that is characterized by the intricate details and ornamental decor of its interiors, and it is one of the few hotels in Chile that can claim national monument status.
Guest rooms are individually sized and decorated, furnished with antiques from the Santiago and Valparaiso region that have been revamped with modern fabrics, and feature bed frames by artist Sebastian Yrarrázaval. Rooms boast original parquet floors, hand-painted ceramic tiles, and stylish wallpaper imported from Europe that contrasts strikingly with handcrafted pillows, rugs and blankets weaved by Andean artisans. Rooms are equipped with flat-screen cable TV, free WiFi and private bathrooms with bathrobes and slippers. Some rooms feature scenic views of Concepción Hill.
Palacio Astoreca's amenities include the Alegre Restaurant, a Wine Cava, an library with an extensive multilingual collection, and a piano bar lounge, as well as original art by contemporary painters such as Ricardo Yrarrázaval and Frédéric Clot, and photography by locals artists Eric Rondepierre and Rodrigo Gómez Rovira, that make the hotel a living and breathing art piece.
Built of dark slate, the chic spa features a steam bath, heated indoor pool, massage, and an indoor wood-burning hot tub backed by a two-story wall of lush hanging ivy. It is a perfect place to unwind after a day of discovering Valparaiso's atmospheric (and steep!) streets.
