Bare bones. No porter, no elevator, no or spotty hot water, no wi-fi in room, no concierge, no room service, no restaurant when you want to eat. Located in a poorly lit neighborhood so sorta scary walking around at night.

Good hotel and quite cheap for La Paz standard. Great pool, average restaurant, big rooms with comfortable beds. Big and safe parking, free WIFI. Everything is in walking distance from hotel but there are some others (more expensive) closer to city center.

This is a lovely mexican hotel that works great as a base for exploring the La Paz area. It has lovely murals on the ground floor around the walls that open up to the pool area. It helps if you have a little Spanish as few of the staff speak English but they are very helpful, friendly and manage to... More

Friendly staff great unassuming get away for couples, family and friends. Go fishing and have the chef cook your catch. Sit around the pool and enjoy a beverage. Comfortable casual surroundings. Not fancy. Enjoy the dining menu or the chef will make what your heart desires.

We booked a 6-day stay at Hacienda Bugambilias online, after deciding that we didn't need something more upscale (or expensive). For the price, this place worked well for us. The staff is very friendly & helpful, tolerating our elementary Spanish, answered all our questions about the town, and generally provided us with excellent service. The courtyard is beautiful, especially at... More

I don't know what they remodeled, but it surely wasn't the beds and decor. The restaurant did not offer what they advertised as far as the various types of cuisine. When we first pulled up in front of the hotel, I thought it was closed. No curb appeal, and the pool needed resurfacing or painting. Very tacky. My worst fears... More

The pool is fabulous. It was our favorite thing about this hotel. The rooms are average looking, but very clean and spacious. The restaurant on the first floor has nice breakfasts and coffee, and the waiters are more than happy to bring your drinks or food over to the pool-- which is very nice. Antonio and Oscar are the nicest,... More

I used to love the Gardenias and stayed there lots over the years, I was just there Jan 08 and it appears that someone from France bought it and raised the rates from $50 to $70 and tore out the locked gated parking area. They have done some improvements, like paint murals around the interior walls and are putting in... More

Hotel Gardenias is a great place to stay if you're visiting La Paz on a budget, or if you want to avoid American tourists. Management was very accomodating of our 20-person group. The atmosphere is currently a little faded-- you can see how the lobby and pool area were probably glamourous in the 70s. But they're renovating, so it could... More

We spent three nights at Las Gardenias, and I have to admit it was a bit rustic for me. The rooms were simply furnised, but clean. The beds, though, were terrible and the A/C unit was horribly loud. Speaking of loud, we came at the end of Holy week, and this is a big vacation time for the locals, who... More
