I wrote a very positive review about this place over a year ago and am happy to report that it still remains the best place in Sucre. It's a gorgeous historic property only a block away from the main square. The staff is friendly, helpful and the free WiFi in the rooms very fast. Room service was a complete surprise... More

Absolutely gorgeous hotel! Filled with history, art and antiques! We stayed in room 211 which has a Louis XVI king size bed! Our group was given a private tour by the owner Luis Pedro Rodriguez Calvo who is so personable and obviously very proud of his hotel. We had a group dinner in a magnificent setting in the hotel the... More

My stay didn't start out too well as they had no record of my reservation. Not sure if this was a problem with the hotel or with Expedia which I had used to make the reservation. But fortunately they had a free room even though it was a long holiday weekend. I had a room on the third floor with... More

The Parador Sta Maria la Real is a luxurious hotel in the middle of the city of Sucre. It is very conveniently located. One can walk to most of the major sights of Sucre. I had the misfortune however of getting a room on the third floor, as I recall, and had to navigate through stairs and alleys to get... More

This charming hotel was my favorite during two weeks in Bolivia. It was an unexpected luxurious treat. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious but still retained its charming original features. There was excellent cable television service and a lovely balcony. There was free wi-fi which was available in each room as well as in the common areas. The service... More

Sucre is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and without question the Parador Santa Maria Real is the most beautiful, historic, and intimate hotel in the city. The decor is exquisite, the service impeccable, and the breakfast is wonderful. I have stayed there many times in the past few years, and the quality never varies -- always... More

The most framing word for this hotel is exceptional. In any possible way it is stylish, interesting and with good service and perfect location. Stayed there for 2 nights with my wife and was blown away by its charm. I have travelled all over the world, and this hotel is with no doubt in the absolute highest end.

I totaly enjoyed my stay. AASANA people at the airport took us to a hotel that turned out to be a dump. We asked about the best hotel in town and they said "Parador Santa Maria". They were right. We stayed 2 nights and it is a great hotel. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast buffet was good.

This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in, rather it be in the USA or the other 50 countries we have visited. The rooms are exquisite, the service excellent and owner very friendly. The owner has remodeled this privately owned manor and has included their privately owned collection of artifacts. As for location, it is only a block... More
