This hotel is average. It is not a 4 star hotel at all. The service is fine and helpful. But the room I was given was super-small! It was all clean but everything needs a bit of an update. The bed was far too soft for me. The only plus was the view of the ocean. The breakfast was really...

We only stayed there one night but the room was adequate. The location is great for a walk along the corniche and beach. The breakfast was fine and the hotel was quiet. I would stay there again but would prefer being closer to the main part of Valparaiso.

This is a nice hotel, great location to restaurants, the casino, and waterfront. The staff was excellent, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about locks places. Easy to get on subway/train to Valipraso or beaches to the north. The rooms were clean and comfortable, nice sized rooms.

We chose HSM because of its location on the waterfront and in the middle of a locally visited tourist area. We paid a little extra to have an ocean view which paid off with gorgeous views of the bays and the sound of the surf throughout the night. There were street sounds until pretty late but I think that's true...

My better half and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. We got there too early to check in, but the desk offered to hold our luggage in a secure area until our room was ready. This was perfect after a 9 hour flight and another 1.5 hour drive. Once our room was ready, we quickly checked in and...

My first impression of this hotel was an angry parking attendant.. Hmmm not an auspicious start. This hotel is in a great location, right on the ocean but it feels very touristy and various staff seem a little burned out from the crowds. The room was fine, nothing special and the amenities were average. The breakfast (food and area) was...

We booked junior suite for 4 nights and were very happy with our choice. The bedroom and adjoining sitting room were large, each with patios and ocean views. I am happy to say the TV has more than one English channel. The linen was of a very high standard, the staff were extremely helpful. The hotel location is perfect being...

While this hotel is older it is in very good shape and so are the rooms. The hotel was really clean which is important to me.
