Hostal Republica

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

Alojamiento Universo: The cheapest ? Le moins cher ?

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 Happy Days: gringo alley but convenient

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.

El Lobo: cheap but a little noisy

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.

Hotel Rosario: OK tourist hotel

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…

My room at Republica hostel

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!

Sagarnaga Street

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...

Colibri Camping La Paz: La Paz Campsite with spectacular views

This is a superb new mountainside campsite with amazing views over the valley and river below just outside La Paz. It's bathrooms even have chandeliers - it's like staying in a hotel! The site looks over the valley of the flowers and there os a grassy area for tents, a cabin and a couple of teepees for hire. The place is so tranquil, has fire pits and an outdoor kitchen with more equipment than my one at home and loads of hammocks and sitting areas in the gardens for enjoying the views and birdlife.
It is really near the Valley of the Moon, one of the main sites tourists visit near La Paz and not far from the city if you want to visit for a day or night out.
We also went horse-riding and trekking nearby and would really recommend the campsite to anyone who enjoys nature and peace in a lovely setting.

It also has a hot-tub with great views!

Hotel a La Maison: Apartments in Sopocachi

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

Jach'a Inti: Decent hostel but cold

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
Very central
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.

Conclusion:
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.

Hotel Torino

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.
