Loved the location, the old fashioned decor, the cleanliness, the staff, but hated the beds (and they let us try many different rooms). Price is OK considering. WiFi is decent but doesn't work in the rooms.

Very well located, two steps away from the main square. The room we had was spacious and pretty clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative point would be the shower; the water was never really hot.

We found the Grand Hotel by chance as we walked around the central plaza of Sucre. The hotel is listed as a three star and it is actually a three star. Hot water, clean, cable tv, and WiFi plus a friendly staff. Less than a minute walk to the central plaza and near major attractions in Sucre. We would stay... More

We came across this hotel by chance and were very happy with our luck. The room we were given looks out on to the first courtyard and had two huge beds, a big bathroom and a separate sitting area with comfy chairs. What luxury after the tiny cold rooms we were used to! The courtyard itself is very pretty and... More

The hotel is seriously run down, and it's a pity, as it could be so much better. The internal patio is really nice. However in my room everything seemed to be broken. The hot water didn't work. The lamp had a broken bulb. The door handle was broken. When I inquired about the need to change the bulb, the receptionist... More

After traveling in Bolivia for awhile we came to cherish a good how shower, and the Gran Sucre had the best ever. The room was OK and clean, wifi worked well. The breakfast was good by Bolivian standards. All in all a good value for the money and the location in the city was convenient.

I stayed at the Grand for two weeks, with a weekend break in the middle while studying Spanish in Sucre. The hotel was perfect for this situation. The building has a great colonia ambiance, there are two courtyards to read, relax or study (one with better WiFi than the other) and a friendly helpful staff. The location can't be beat,... More

Disappointing place. - made me move room - no hot water in either room - barely lukewarm. No pressure either. - staff forgot to send my laundry to be washed despite me filling out the form in front of them - breakfast should be included - it's OK - papaya juice was nice, but the coffee sucks, and you could...

Stayed 3 nights and the room was only serviced once. The room was average and could have done with some redecoration, looked a bit grubby too. Bathroom was swimming in water after a shower and didn’t drain so was wet and a mosquito breeding ground.They serve breakfast, if you want, which you pay for but I wouldn’t recommend it. The...
