We liked the location of the B&B, which is on a hill, a few blocks away from the busy areas. So, it is close enough to walk downtown but far away enough to be pretty quiet at night. The house is beautifully restored. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. Brian and Lya are super friendly and helpful.... More

Located in a 19th century mansion, this B&B caters primarily to single and couple travellers seeking a warm and friendly environment close to the action in Vina. It is located 2 blocks from the miramar metro station, which connects to Valparaiso. Easy walk to downtown vina del mar. Brian & Lya, the English speaking hosts, are incredibly hospitable and helpful.... More

We stayed at Hotel Genross while visiting our son who was in the midst of a study away program for his university. We chose this hotel based on the great reviews from Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Brian and Lya are most gracious hosts and provided much personal attention and many helpful recommendations during our visit. We loved... More

The hosts are knowledgeable and friendly. The hotel is lovely. The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. It is the perfect quiet spot. I really enjoyed my stay and would stay there again. The hosts love classic American rock and roll and if you sing Mustang Sally Brian will sing along :-)

If you are on your way to Valparaiso for a cruise, or want to visit Valpo, stay in Vina del Mar and stay at the Genross. Valpo can be treacherous for the traveler, especially if you don't look like you're from Chile. You need to guard yourself and your possessions quite closely in certain parts of the city, especially at... More

Just a half block up the hill from the midst of the loud, busy craziness of downtown Vina del Mar sits this little gem of a restored, cozy and quiet small hotel. It's more of a B&B run by a really friendly, welcoming English-speaking couple (Brian is Canadian, Lya Chilean) who are available for advice, directions, even the occasional glass... More

We spent just two nights in Vina at the Genross. The location is great, right in the downtown area, close to everything and very handy for the Metro and restaurants are just a few mins walk away. We were 'fortunate'? enough to experience our first ever earthquake here so we will never forget the place! Brian was a charming host... More

We could not have found a more perfect place to spend our time in Vina del Mar. This beautiful Victorian home was a quiet, peaceful haven in an otherwise bustling city.

Having checking TripAdvisor reviews, I thought the Genross would be perfect to 'recharge my batteries' after a week of serious wine tasting! By car, the Genross is easy to find from Valpariso direction but relatively tricky from Concon or Limache so best to get directions in advance. However, there are plenty of buses and taxis available, if needed, plus the... More
