The options in Potosí are pretty minimal and this hotel is one of the best in the batch. The rooms, while very dated with tiny TVs and decor, are spacious enough and heated. (a necessity at night in Potosí) Also appreciate the various layers of blankets despite the fact that they weren't exactly coordinated with each other (zebra print on... More

Positive: - Centrally located within the historical center; - It has a car garage. Negative: - Staff where neither cooperative, nor friendly; - The room we stayed in was in desperate need of renovations; - It had a really bad clorox smell which gave us a blistering headache; - No drinking water in rooms (at 5k meters, it's a MUST);...

Our room was large, but very dark and without view (wall neighbours). The shower was hot, the wifi in the room worked well and the beds were fine. Odd that there was a table with only one chair! Really poor was the breakfast and the service around it. Refilling was not an automatism. The laundry service is expensive. The place... More

The hotel is located in a very good location, near to the central attractions, unfortunately the quality is not good, the staff needs training and the rooms need maintenance. We just took breakfast and the variety is poor, just a cup of hot beverage (just one cup) and piece of bread. Summarizing the hotel have lot of potential, nice and... More

During our 2 weeks trip in Bolivia visting different cities and different accommodation, this is probably the best one - the room is nice and clean and even with heater!! The bathroom is also clean and big. The only small thing to complain is the size of the room is not really enough for 2 people and 2 big suitcases.... More

It looked like a nice hotel, but after making a *confirmed* reservation through Travelocity, the hotel did not honor it and said they didn't work with Travelocity. Be very wary of this hotel...lest you find yourself walking around Potosi with your luggage trying to find another place to stay.

Polite and helpful receptionists taking care of our wishes for a quiet room. Clean rooms with cable TV, free WiFi internet access and comfortable beds. Interesting location close to Santa Teresa’s, city center and 3 minutes walking from the famous CASA DE LA MONEDA. Nice view on Potosi’s roofs. Free in room WiFi internet access. Definitely, nice hotel in Potosi

This is a very conveniently located hotel, situated between the two famous 'downtown' sites - the convent and the mint (both well worth a visit). However, someone needs to bring it into the real world of tourism which is now 'invading' Bolivia. The reception area looks like something out of post WWII Britain with dangling electric wires everywhere and an... More

Pros: Located very close to the central plaza (8 minute walk at most). The shower had consistent temperature water at a great pressure. The breakfast buffet was very good. Cons: The sheets sometimes come off the bed.The rooms aren't very soundproof so you can hear more than you want at times. Weak wifi. We had a few decent meals at... More

Very well located between the monastery and the central plaza within walking distance ( at least if you have some breath available ). But that is about it. Poor rooms with carpet, non-heated and very small bathroom. Kitchen not as good as expected. Only 1 servant could help with the luggage. As a result I was exhausted when arriving in... More
