Sin dudas fue el mejor departamento en el que he pasado mis vacaciones en familia. Excelente ubicación. Todo relucía de limpio.Equipamiento completo, más que mi propia casa. (juegos de mesa, tostadora, linterna de emergencia,adaptador para enchufes y hasta costurero y paraguas!!!) Pero lo mejor de todo fue el recibimiento y la calidez de Fidel y los presentes con los que nos encontramos ( desde chocolates hasta jaleas, jugos, cerveza fría y muchas cosas más!!)Por todo esto,para mi, vale mucho más de lo que cuesta!! Seguramente vamos a volver.
My husband and I stayed in Fidel's apartment for 3 nights. The apartment was clean and in a great location. The area was safe we were close to the metro as well as the market. Fidel was a great host. He and his wife met us as the apartment, gave us great suggestions of where to go and where to eat. Upon arrival we were having problems with our rental car. Both my husband and I speak little spanish so Fidel offered to call the rental company and help us get our car fixed. Communications with the rental company went into the next day and Fidel took care of everything. He is a great host and his apartment is a great place to stay.
Our stay couldn't have been better. Fidel and his wife came to greet us and answered any questions as well as recommended places to see and eat. They were so friendly and helpful and had excellent English. As others mentioned we had a small bottle of wine, water, milk, juice, and a couple snacks and beers! The apt. was clean and had a washing machine, drying rack, and iron. It is conveniently located near the bus station and cruise checkin building. I am happy to recommend this apt. for couples or families!
Fidel was a very good host, helpful, responsive & attentive. Apartment & kitchen were well equipped and in good condition. There was even a washing machine. The quality of the beds was good. A bit of cleaning on the floor and the slide windows would be good, but everything else, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, were well clean. The location is approx. 5 min away from the bus terminal, 5-10 min from the market or metro, 20-25 min from Cerro Concepción (walking distance). We felt very comfortable here and would return to Fidel's apartment on another trip to Valparaiso and can recommend this place to other travelers.
What can I say? When your host is leaving the place after giving you large copies of good maps highlighting all the main attractions, after coming personally on the weekend to give you a warm welcome... he says: There are two beer cans in the fridge... enjoy! Fidel is awesome.
The neighborhood is not as pretty as the upper city, but is definitely a great place. three rooms, two bathrooms, one of them with a decent bathtub, garage, washing machine... etc. awesome!!
Fidel and his wife were great. They returned emails quickly and met with us exactly when they said they would. They even let us check in a bit early because my daughter was not feeling well and needed to lie down. They left beer in the fridge and snacks to nibble on. As much as I recommend Fidel as a host, we did not enjoy the apartment. Although comfortable in size, the apartment was located in a questionable area that we did not feel totally safe in. Also, the place is in need of a good cleaning; the baseboards, window sills and walls were very dirty. Secured parking was a nice feature.
Fidel's apartment was exactly what we needed for our weekend in Valparaiso. He greeted us at the apartment and was flexible in terms of our checkout time. All in all, a great airbnb experience. I would highly recommend
Fidel and his wife were so kind and hospitable, it was an absolute pleasure to stay in their apartment! They picked us up from the Bus station and gave us some great local tips on the way to the apartment, one which included a beer festival (we had a great time there of course). They went above and beyond in their service - with beers in the fridge for us - thank-you! We would stay in one of Fidel's places anytime - we highly recommend him as a host, very easy to communicate with and great place!@
We were enjoying the fiestas patrias in valparaiso and had such a great time! The appartment was perfect for our group! Fidel and his wife did everything they could do make this stay the most enjoyable and we feel really blessed to have met them, they are great! The location of the appartment was great, on saturday there was a market right outside the building and almost everything is in walking distance or otherwise there are many micros driving by, taking you everywhere for just a few pesos! We can highly recommend this lovely space with the great terrace where we enjoyed all our meals in the sun. Thank you so much!
My friend and I stayed in Fidel's apartment in Valpo for a few days. Fidel was extremely communicative and kind throughout the whole process. He ended up picking us up from the bus station, which is only about 2 block away from his apartment (very convenient). He showed us maps of Vina and Valpo, and walked us through things that we should see during our stay there. We also were able to meet his wife, who was as lovely and nice and he was. The apartment itself is very safe, spacious, and Fidel even left chocolates, beer and a few other food items for our arrival. We would definitely recommend Fidel's place for anyone who wants to see the "real" Chile.
