The hotel is large with an amazing view from the balcony of the breakfast room. Breakfast buffet was ok but there were no eggs. Room and bathroom were spacious, bed was comfortable but the mattress was uneven. First night the shower was cold, second night it was hot. Heater was available. Window could not shut completely so we had some... More

We stayed in the Hotel Berlina for a bit of luxury having had a bit of a nightmare in northern Chile. The hotel is on a busy street which can get frustrating in the morning when the Bolivian drivers career along honking their horns for no reason other than to check to see if they are still working. However frustrating... More

It’s a great location in the centre of the tourist area, but there is a plethora of much cheaper hotels and hostels in the same area (many not listed on TA). There’s not much difference between many hotels charging around US$30 and the Berlina which charges $60. We found a decent room on Sagarnaga (slightly better location) with bathroom in... More

I stayed at Hotel Berlina 4 times (1-2 nights each) during my 3 months in Bolivia and was always happy to return. They remembered me after just one stay and always greeted me like a friend each time. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I had to print and scan some documents for a tour I was taking the... More

We wandered past this place after staying for a couple of nights in a place a few doors away and, having decided to stay a bit longer in LP wanted somewhere a bit nicer. A very good location close to the main areas of interest. The lady on reception was exceptionally helpful and had just one room left on the... More

Berlina is a great place to stay in the central part of La Paz. The rooms are beautiful, clean. They provide a small electric heating which is enough to keep people warm. There is a oxygen cylinder available for the customers who feel sick due to the altitude. Wifi internet is fine, although sometimes a bit slow during evenings. The... More

If you only want to spend a limited amount of money in La Paz this is a good choice. Rooms are oldish but are sufficient. Hot water, in-room heating and wifi are reliable. There is a lift. Breakfast is substantial but no hot food and no heating. Staff are mostly friendly but English is limited.

The hotel doesn't look particularly inviting from outside on Calle Illampu, but once inside the welcome is warm and although the decor is dated, everything works and rooms are neat and clean (and large). The free breakfast, served in the 8th floor restaurant is plentiful, varied and good, with spectacular views over the city and surrounding mountains. Location-wise it's great... More

We checked into the hotel and were impressed with the staff and the hotel in general, it was the most expensive we had stayed in since Rio. We had high expectations. The internet was a bit intermittent. Looked connected but did not work a lot. The worst part was the bed. We got into bed and it was clear it... More
