This was the base for the beginning and end of a kayak trip. The hotel staff were friendly, it helps if you speak some Spanish. The rooms were basic and I was surprised they were carpeted which I find unusual in warm climates. The rooms were clean, musty smell (carpets), carpets stained, A/C loud, beds too hard. The food at the on-site restaurant is mediocre, best to head down the Malecon where there are plenty of options. The location is at the eastern end of the Malecon and it requires a taxi or 1.2 mile walk to get to the central area.
The staff is very friendly, although not all front desk attendants are fluent in English, welcoming, and helpful. During my multi-day stay, I used 2 different rooms, and both had the hardest beds I've ever experienced and huge pillows that were as stiff as life jackets. The location is very isolated from the Central District, requiring multi-mile walks or taxis to get around. It's also very dark at night, at that end of the Malecon, which some women mentioned to me wasn't comfortable. Phone broken and cobwebs with dead flies in the bathroom light fixture in one room. Towels are pretty rough but smelled clean; carpets stained. However, the prices are reasonable. With better attention to details, this hotel would deserve a better rating.
This is a professionally run, very clean hotel located across the street from the north end of the malecon, so a quick walk to the beach. The rooms are spacious, modern and quiet, with good wifi. We had a second floor room and could open the window, which was really nice instead of using the a/c at night. The pool area is gorgeous and the breakfasts outstanding. We traveled with another couple and found that booking directly with the hotel was less expensive than booking online.
average hotel, rooms were nice and clean, the breakfast included was great. Nothing fancy but great location. found the rooms not very sound proof, the pool was quite cool, some staff spoke English but not all but we could get our point across no elevator so you carry your luggage up the stairs. Free water for filling your water bottle and free washer and dryers so that was excellent.
Apparently they have refurbished many of the rooms. Unfortunately for me, I was not in one of those so this review is based on a old, undated, and very disappointing room. My room was old fashioned and stank of smoke. The bed was impossibly hard with an under blanket which didn’t even cover the mattress so I was sleeping direct on that with no padding at all under the sheet; the bathroom tiles were cracked and there is absolutely no sound proofing in the rooms. Everything was very old fashioned and needed updating but worst of all was the carpet which was old and dirty and you wouldn’t want to have bare feet. Wifi did not work in the bedrooms. On the positive, the shower power is good and strong and there seems to be plenty of hot water. The room seems clean apart from the carpet but simply age makes it look old and grey. The pool area is nice, though I couldn’t find any towels so assume I was meant to take one from the bedroom which was difficult as I had only one and that was grey and threadbare. Breakfast staff were particularly friendly. I’m being very critical and this place is OK for a day or two if you are having a brief stopover but there are many better places to go and I currently find this hotel very over-priced for the quality on offer.
I needed a place to stay late at night due to an emergency, and Couldn't get a cab to take me to the hotel. Franco, at front desk was gracious enough to provide me with the phone number to a reliable cab service that late. Upon arrival check in was a breeze. It was a short visit but I'll definitely stay here again, clean rooms, comfortable bed and great atmosphere.
My stay here this time was much better than in the past. The rooms have been updated, which were a bit run down before. The beds are comfortable and I appreciate the Seattle channels on the tv. The restaurant is great, make sure to try the shrimp tacos or the tampiqueña. The grounds are well maintained and walking along the waterfront is very relaxing.
A bit of a calmer place to stay in town, but not being out of the way. The sign and the hotel lobby might make you feel this is a too posh of a place, but it's reasonable, and a good place to stay. Good amount of safe parking on the hotel grounds. It was lively around the pool with children and adults, but not at an inappropriate level. The grounds were well kept, and the rooms were nice. Though, the shower head seemed quite cheap compared to everything else. There was early morning grinding that did permeate everything for a few hours. A few bottles of drinking water were nice to have, and extra water was available in the hallways. Breakfast was included with a great quality "American Breakfast" bar. The omelettes were freshly prepared with many fillings. Pleasant and prompt coffee. Everyone at the hotel was very nice and helpful. This will probably be my new default place to stay when traveling to La Paz.
Hi My wife and I went to this hotel about a month ago, the service was excellent, the reservation included breakfast so I thought that the breakfast was going to be simple and cheap (the classical american breakfast), to my surprise the breakfast buffet was excellent very vast and super tasty. The entire hotel is being remodeled, so everything looks pretty new and shiny. The down side is that one day, we saw like hundreds of kids playing in the pool and the noise was too much, the good part is that they stayed only for the day. It is highly recommended that you rent a car since the hotel is a bit far from everything (to the very end of the Malecon). There is a disco (80's style) that I liked very much, made me go back to my old-good days. by the way, the WiFi works pretty good in all rooms, something hard to see in other places. Overall I recommend this place 100%
I spent two days here with my family. Pros: Very close to the malecon, restaurants and night life, excellent pool, good room size, you dont hear the bars and cars noises at night and very relax atmosphere. Cons: Beds not very confortable, food at restaurant low than average.
