We had the great fortune of staying at Zerohotel on the first night of 19 days across Chile and Peru. Valparaiso is about 90 minutes from Santiago airport. The drive is easy and beautiful through several valleys - including the Casablanca wine region. The hotel is in the center-city set up on a hill that seemed to be a touristy area. Valparaiso appears somewhat to be a city left behind - an older port city. The hotel overlooks much of the city and the port below. There is a beautiful and relaxing garden that overlooks the harbor and city (we spent several hours out there).
The room was very comfortable with large windows that opened fully. The beds were comfortable with very nice linens. The bath was very large with a great shower. The only complaint I would have - and it is in NO way the hotel's fault - is that we stayed there on a Saturday night and slept with the windows open. There was a very loud party somewhere nearby that went until at least 3:30. Even once we closed the windows it was still quite loud.
The owner and staff were all very gracious, welcoming and helpful with restaurant and activity suggestions. On the lower level, where they serve breakfast either inside or out, there was an honor bar with a nice selection of wines and other cocktails and beverages.
This boutique hotel hit the mark in every way. I am not sure when my travels will bring me back to Valparaiso, but if they do, the Zerohotel is where I would stay.
