The hotel is central to most sites in the old part of town and is within easy asking distance to these. There are many eateries nearby to. Staff were very helpful and spoke English, making the stay very comfortable. There are open areas (terraces and lounge areas) to sit and relax without needing to be in your room. Rooms are... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found it very good value for money compared with other options in La Paz. A great location, with most major sights within walking distance, a large double room with hot shower and cable TV, along with a fantastic breakfast selection make this a top choice. The top floor restaurant has great... More

Stayed 8 nights at Estrella Andina for work and travel. It's good value for the money in my opinion. Next time I may choose another location just to have a varied experience in La Paz. This hotel is in the touristy area. If you go towards Plaza Avaroa direction then it's not so congested. Pros: good location for tourist attractions... More

The rooms were clean, colourful and comfortable (and not even that cold). The showers were hot and the water pressure was great. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was really good with lots of choice (coffee, juice, cereal, fruit, bread, optional eggs, pancakes etc etc) and a great view over the city. A great first port of... More

After 3 weeks of gritty hostels and campsites, we found ourselves in Estrella Andina! The staff was very friendly and even gave us an extra breakfast when we arrived early for check-in. Breakfast itself is amazing with a variety of fruits, grains, juices, and a cook that will make eggs just how you want them! Wifi is strong in the... More

I think I like everything about this place. I go with groups, so I went there about 6 times. The desk staff is helpful. The breakfast is very good. I really like that in every room there are different wall paintings. Shower and bed good too. On the top floor where the restaurant is, you can grab a good view... More

We were not convinced by this well-located, albeit noisy, highly decorated hotel. Front desk staff is competent but the place can be quit cold and not that good-value for Bolivia. Next time, we shall look for another option.

Hard to find at first, this hostel is perfectly situated in the heart of La Paz near the Witches Market, numerous restaurants, the beautiful cathedral, shopping and more! The travel agent inside the hostel helped us to book the Barracuda Biking Tour which was the highlight of our trip. Although the wifi was slow and construction was taking place during... More
