This hotel was perfect for our family and very roomy and nice. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the treat at the end of the day was a welcomed surprise for our kiddos. Compared to other hotels it was definately worth the price.
I traveled to Bolivia to see the Dakar and spent three days at the Ritz Apart hotel. It's an all suite hotel whose rooms are cozy and well appointed. Each suite has a self contained kitchenette and it's adequate to prepare a small meal if needed. In January the weather is a bit chilly and the rain can drop the mercury a couple more degrees south. And here is about the only grouse I had with the room, there are heaters but they don't function. I had to ask the hotel to provide me with a heater. The first night we got in late and to a cold room, not the best night. Things however got significantly better. The breakfast next morning was reasonably good, I've eaten better but other than the waffles which were a bit disappointing, nothing really to complain about. The Ritz Apart also has a small cafe/bistro/restaurant that serves some spectacular pizzas. Service all around is acceptable, not too prompt but you will get served. Denny who can be found at the front desk was a big help. Since the front desk is managed by very limited staff, check in and check out will take time so plan accordingly. The hotel was entirely occupied during my visit to LA Paz, everyone was there for the Dakar! And everyone's plans coincided, so at the time of check out, well everyone descended on the front desk. The hotel isn't prepare to handle that load and though they did work quickly it was still a long wait. Ideally plan this out, probably check out the night before, if the hotel is crowded. The Ritz Apart is quite conveniently located, you've got supermarkets close by as well as the university a few blocks north west. Even the cable car, Mi Teleférico station is a 10-13 Bolivianos ride away if you want get some stunning views of the city. A reasonably decent option if you're on a budget.
This was part of our tour in July 2016. Suite - 10, very roomy and clean , hot water was always available. Bar up front - 5 , served delicious gelato but food was terrible Restaurant downstairs - 7, breakfast buffet was nice , dinner entree not so great
Nice property but poorly managed by manager Rodrigo. Upon reaching for toilet paper. I found NONE. I had to use hand towels before walking into the shower. I was charged for the towels during check out which i refused to pay. The manager, Rodrigo,actually told me that it was my responsibility to check for paper before using the toilet. I canceled 4 days of stay there and moved to another 5 star hotel. It was a humiliating and rude expeience. My first with a toilet paper crisis in 35 years , 7 continents and 110 countries of travel.
Look, this is my first stay in a Ritz, much less a Ritz in Bolivia, but I must say it appears to be overrated. The food for breakfast was average and the dinner at the restaurant was also just average. The bed was comfortable enough and the shower had good pressure and hot water, but this hotel charges way too much for minibar items, dental kit, slippers, water, etc. The laundry was 5 USD to wash and 5 USD to dry. Staff was friendly and helpful, but that should be expected. The location is pretty good but you should be able to find other less expensive options that compare well or better.
I went with a friend, and the service was very good and the staff were very polite. The breakfast could improve considering the price being paid. We had a small problem since the person that was next door was kind of crazy, because we just opened the door because we wanted to see who had ringed the bell and then he came out and started screaming at us, telling us that we should go to sleep and we are disturbing his sleep and started shouting bad words at us. And I felt very annoyed since we didn't do anything to make him mad, and well the person in the hotel didnt do anything to fix this. But other from this the hotel is amazing in rooms and location.
Expensive compared to the hotels around. On top of this they charge you for using the accessories in the room without notifying you. They told me about the charges and now I'm listening to people argue about paying for amenities around the suite. One man from Japan just stormed out refusing to pay. He oped a pare of cheap slippers which were on the bed. I almost opened them. They charged me for a tube of toothpaste I put in my bag for future use, and they said I had to pay for a towel they thought was too dirty. If it were really cheap here I'd understand, but it's 40 dollars more then the hotel down the street. GO HERE IF YOU WANT TO FEEL RIPPED OFF.
Luxury apartment hotel located outside the city's bustling center.Excellent service, breakfast slightly below expectations.10 minutes walk from the nearest shopping center.There are not many restaurants around the hotel and the hotel restaurant was closed most of the time.
We stayed at the Ritz on two separate occasions as part of a bird-watching tour. The first night we had an actual apartment with separate sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, and bath. The second night the room was just as elegant but much smaller, more of an efficiency apartment. We ate in the dining room the first night and the food was excellent. The dining room was closed the second night so we at in more of a lunch room -- OK but nothing special. The hotel accommodated our need for early departure by providing pastries and coffee.
I was booked in this hotel thro one of my Business Associate from Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The rooms are good, so is the location. While checking out, the reception guy ripped off saying the room rent was without breakfast (not complimentary) and charged us more. Since we were in a hurry to reach Airport which is quite a distance, just payed back and vowed never to return to this hotel again.
