            Loved the decor... it is all made of refurbished or recycled materials. Had a really cool, old vibe to the place.

            It is probably more for younger folks. Did feel a bit like a hostal.

            We had a very warm welcome at the Fauna hotel. You enter at the top of the hotel where there's a reception/café/lounge leading on to a sunny roof top terrace with views of Valpo and the bay below. The hotel is a stylish mix of natural wood clad walls, exposed concrete where it clings to the hill-side and painted rough plaster. The rooms are all down below the top floor and ours was 2 flights down. We chose a standard room on the hill side which was lit by a large window from a light well. We felt cocooned here but others may feel it's dark. Our bed was big and comfortable (for us that meant medium/soft) with crisp fresh white bedding. The bathroom painted pure brilliant white with slate floor and monsoon shower did what it should. The WiFi worked very well.

            We thoroughly enjoyed our three Nights at Fauna. Those who are sensitive to noise may prefer to stay elsewhere as you can hear heavy footed guests in the rooms above and sometimes the distant sounds of music, chat and good times from the café/bar above.

            The room was extremely comfortable, well sized and with a fantastic view over Valparaiso. The design with exposed adobe walls was also very stylish. The staff were very friendly and we also ate in their cafe restaurant on two occasions, lunch and dinner and both were very good. The quirky decor was fun and on the right side of line.

            On our last night we were disturbed by a group of teenagers sitting outside the hotel at around 4am having loud conversations and drinking. This is not something the Fauna was responsible for but perhaps double glazing would have reduced the impact.

            its location and very good restaurant and one very helpful member of staff in the whole building he is practical and helpful and even got an outside number so we could call a cab to get to hospital he deserves so praise

            its generally miserable staff except one who was very helpful. my girlfriend became ill during our stay- the hotel lacked a working telephone and from that location mobile calls were impossible- we were in a emergency room for around 7 hrs because she had high blood pressure, the hotel lacked any empathy or helpfulness in this situation. they said they had made an error in payment on the day we asked to check and move to a hotel with a working telephone internet and air con- as my girlfriend had needed a cardiology specialist to asses her before we could leave the ER at hospital- the receptionist argued about cancellation for an hour before saying he would give it to us half price after discussing with his manager in the most patronizing of tones. Then called us up to say we had not cancelled the booking and even phoned us at are next hotel after are 12 hour ordeal with casualty. They sent threatening e mail and took a payment for the full amount after saying the would agree to half the price. They made a forced payment from my bank account without permission after getting a signature to the amount the promised avoid at all costs, they are liars and incompetent and less that helpful in difficult situations my girlfriend is seeing many specialist doctors and i am considering writing a letter on her behalf to shame them into taking some honest action. Unreliable untrustworthy and they sent threatening e mails before i could confirm what the amount was that they withdrew , they may have a swipe machine that shows you a number on the receipt and displays another. They lied and cant keep there word only stay for the minimum of time and go to there cafe and dont risk a night there, the food is excellent and cheap

            Beautiful boutique hotel, very helpful and knowledgeable staff, great food, perfect service. Very convenient location on a quiet pedestrian street at the top of Ascensor Reina Victoria, easy to find and perfect location for exploring Cerro Alegre and Concepcion.

            Top room (no 6) can be noisy due to kitchen, stairs and walkway.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            This was a beautiful hotel with a great location. There is a hip vibe, but I brought my parents and they were fine with it too. There is a terrace on the restaurant with great views of the ocean and the city, the rooms were clean and creative, with big comfy beds. The breakfast was included, had great coffee and was a great spread. The owners were around a lot and showed us pictures of how much work they had put into renovating the building. I would definitely stay here again.

            If you are a light sleeper, request a room that does not face the street.

            Locaton was ok for a visit to the old city of Valpariso

            Spent two hours looking forthe hotel. There were no directions given. Even Google Maps and Google Earth did not help. Hotel is on a ally off a street that was under construction and closed. The hotel should be advising guests of this issue. The hotel is just at the top of an Ascensor. Yo would think that would be a great way to tell guests where it is. I asked at least a dozen local people including local stores about the location (in Spanish) and none know of it.

            Fauna is a very artsy boutique hotel and provides us with a fabulous view of the sea, port & the city of Valparaiso. The hotel provided us with personalized service. The hotel has a good vibe and atmosphere.

            Hotel facilities are basic and Breakfast is quite simple.

            Hotel was nicely located in the bohemian area of the city. Nice place to use as a base to visit the city.

            The staff couldn't have been nicer. Gizelle was the chef and prepared us a delicious dinner, Gabriel chatted with us about Valparaiso and Chile, the view from our patio while we ate was magnificent. Daniel lugged our huge bags to our rooms. All spoke good English, and made us feel at homer.

            The only thing hard was that our room was three stories down, no elevator, but I guess that's Valparaiso! It's quirky, funky, great fun, and extremely comfortable otherwise.

            About the only thing this hotel has going for it is its friendly, helpful staff and convenient location. The bed was comfortable.

            Hotel's amenities were not commensurate with the outrageously high nightly rate charged. The hotel did not have an elevator so we had to make numerous trips up and down several flights of stairs with our luggage. Room did not come equipped with telephone, tv, mirror, hair dryer, luggage rack, or even a small cupboard where we could store our suitcases/clothes. The only space available to put our suitcases was the floor so there was barely room for us to walk. No telephone meant having to ascend the stairs to the Front Desk whenever we had a query. Room was tiny and very, very dark. Bathroom lighting was so bad you could barely see yourself in the mirror. Bottom line is this place needs a lot of work before charging what it does.

          • Couple
            3.2

            Large rooms, nice decoration. Breakfast was good.

            Fauna Hotel is a rip off. We chose this hotel based on the reviews on Booked.net, even though is was the most expensive during our 2 months in the region. We did not care that the rooms are basic (no airco/fan, no safe, no tv, no minibar, in one room not even a dustbin). A hotel is a place to sleep in, and that is the main problem of this hotel. It is a wooden hotel, with only 6 rooms. We slept in 2 of them. The first one was situated below the kitchen. This is cleaned at night, so we had to wait until 4am to get some sleep. We changed to a room below, but this is next to stairs. At night many people use these to sit, drink, shout and sing. So, the next 2 nights we did not get much sleep either. The staff is friendly but they don't seem to understand the problem. "'This is Valparaiso"' is their answer. And why have a few nights of live music per week in a wooden hotel? Do you want a bar or a hotel? Our suggestion to them is to cut prices in half and call it a hostel. That way, the price would match the quality
