Ho­tel Pala­cio As­toreca oc­cu­pies a re­stored hill­top man­sion in the lively Cerro Ale­gre neigh­bour­hood. Stylish rooms fea­ture mid-cen­tury fur­ni­ture, gi­ant bath­tubs and bay win­dows with views over the rooftops of the city (from £190; hotel­pala­cioa­s­toreca.com). A ride on the As­cen­sor Barón costs around 10p. Other fu­nic­u­lars worth a visit are the As­cen­sor Ar­tillería (30p) which has ex­cel­lent views as it scales the hill to reach Val­paraíso’s Mar­itime Mu­seum, and the As­cen­sor Con­cep­ción – one of the old­est in the city, soon to re­open fol­low­ing restora­tion.
