This beautiful old Bolivian house was once the home of a President of the Republic. It has 2 shady patios and all the rooms open to the courtyard, so is very quiet and nice.
Rooms are simple but clean and the WC (shared in my case) was nice with hot shower and all that stuff.
They have internet connection free for guests and a pleasant bar.
Single room: 10 USD with shared bathroom
This very popular gringo hotel offers clean safe rooms right in the heart of the city. The rooms are a bit small but you feel secure leaving your things there.
The staff is very friendly and they offer very secure luggage storage if you are going on a trek or down to Uyuni.
Our friends stayed here while we were at Happy Days and it was half the price so we tried it on our return. The rooms were nice enough and ours had a great view of the mountains.
This is an Israeli hotel and attracts a lot of young Isreali travelers, who seem intent on partying till all hours, and coming home with little regard for anyone that might be sleeping.
So, it was not always the best place to get a night's sleep. As I said, it's cheap and if on a budget, it's good value but if you have some extra money, there are more quiet places to rest your head.
Disappointed by the want of bus to Puno, we had to find a hotel for one night in La Paz (where we will return !!!). This hotel, close to the bus station, is very cheap and run by a sympathetic old man. So, why not recommanding it ?
Decus par l'absence de bus pour Puno, nous avons du trouver un hotel pour une nuit a La Paz (ou nous reviendrons !). Celui-ci, pres du terminal de bus, est vraiment pas cher et son proprio est un vieux bonhomme bien sympatoche. Aussi, pourquoi ne pas le recommander ??
Cheap : 13 bolivianos (less than 2 USD) per person. Clean.
Pas cher : 13 bolivianos (moins de 2 USD) par personne. Propre
Hotel Rosario is a good tourist hotel, located in a busy shopping street in the centre of La Paz. The building is old, but charming and the common areas are nicely decorated with exposed beams and wood staircases, doors, and windows. Room was clean and spacious, equipped with three single beds, TV (with international channels), Wi-Fi, safety box, and a mini-bar. The breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold items, and we also had a steak for dinner one night at the restaurant. It was not cheap, but very good... The staff was friendly and helpful. Free coffee and tea was available in the lobby during the day, a computer room with 6 computers for free (high speed internet), and a small travel agency in the hotel lobby (but didn’t use their services). I would stay here again anytime…
I decided to built this page. before starting i`d like to say that the tips that i tell you about hotels and other acomodations in la paz is not my personal experience. As i live here, why should i stay in a hotel???jeje...so, i will tell you and describe the experiences of my friends and passengers who stayed here.
Good staff, excelent location, elevator, a restaurant inside, tv cable and private bathrooms, parking. ok, i can say all the things that a hotel of 2 start must offer.
Here you can see my room at Republica. At the left there were huge windows through which all the light of the patio came in. But it had dark courtains for the mornings too!
I didn't sleep here, but walking around the centre I noticed in this street there were many cheap hostels, backpackers style, and a lot of agencies offering trips to El Salar de Uyuni and so. So I think this should be a popular place for backpackers...
A la Maison is a brilliant place to stay in La Paz. Our host Ludo is welcoming and full of suggestions for where to go, where to eat and how to do so safely.
We'd booked one large apartment for our group of 5, but were offered two separate apartments instead. Good idea, more space and 2 bathrooms.
A light breakfast is supplied
Each of the Apartments is different. We found the facilities excellent and the space great. Furnishing (beds, seating etc) are comfortable. There are basic cooking facilities.
The top floor apartment is light and airy, and has views of Illimani from the windows.
And then of course, the wonderful Ludo, a brilliant host
The good things:
Clean large rooms arrange along a long patio, some with private bathrooms and some with shared facilities.
Decent kitchen and clothes lines outside to dry your stuff
Secure entry via buzzer
Price was reasonable
The bad things:
The arrangement of the rooms around an outside patio means that the rooms are cold. Like all hostels in Peru or Bolivia there is no heating and we were absolutely freezing. Going to the toilets in the evening meant going outside from a freezing room and inside freezing toilets - not nice.
Very poor sound insulation between rooms.
OK option for a hostel but cold and noisy on occasions. We had a cold so moved on somewhere much better and warmer with private bathroom for a handful of bolivianos more.
The Hostal is a couple blocks from the towns main square and short up hill walk from the city center. Friendly staff and clean rooms.
Friendly staff with some english spoken. Travel agency available for tours and bus tickets (although it is cheaper if you go to the bus station yourself). Internet and a small restaurant is on site. Rooms are available with either shared or private bath. Rates as of 2003 where as follows (In US$):
with private bath
Here, you may get a suite for $20.00 / night
range $10.00 - $20.00 / day, for a suite.
Quiet , in the center, so you must choose the room behind the main street.
Big rooms with private bathroom, kitchen and lounge
Near the markets and the center.
Hotel Torino (on right in Picture).
Price varies, but they have dirt cheap deals in the upper floors.
Rarely is there a chance to stay in such a historic hotel. This hotel is a mere half a block from Plaza Murillo, the heart of Bolivia's government. Plaza Murillo is the main plaza in La Paz and probably Bolivia.
$17/B's115 For double room, see above.
Price seems very reasonable: $17 for a double room (2 beds) with bathroom and 24Hr hot water and TV and satelite.
Also has large restaurant but set menu.
Owner friendly and speaks a little English.
