Our first visit was fabulous,our second visit, a disaster -- though the service was not quite 5-stars, the first time, it was enough to bring us back a second time despite the fact that a nearby 4-star offered rooms for half the price at an equally old restored home. We wanted the same level of attention, however, but were shocked... More

Not only is this hotel blessed with its beauty and location, it probably has the most charming and dedicating owner and manager Luis Rodriguez, that I have encountered in a number of years. His hands on approach and attention to detail to restore this fine old lady was breath taking. It was the best hotel we stayed in, in Bolivia.... More

We stayed twice at the Parador Santa Maria la Real in November. What a nice hotel. The first time I stayed in a room on the ground floor and that I did not like that much as I had no view from my room. On my second stay I had a room on the 2nd floor with a beautiful view... More

As the title captures it all, I do need to say that the conversion of a colonial spatial home was magnificently done. One walks in and feels he is in a museum. Then to find out that it does have a true museum of the history of the building and era. The dueño don Luis Pedro Rodríguez was so kind... More

This was just about our favourite hotel in four weeks in Bolvia. It has great staff and is very well located just a block from the main square, but on a reasonably quiet street. The hotel reeks of character with new and old combined very tastefully. There is some very interesting art in the public areas and a nice little... More

We spent two nights here on our travels to Uyuni. This hotel has an amazing homely feel, whilst being taken back in time. Our room was delightful. Everything is old and continues with the same feel and theme of the hotel. My only gripe is you can feel every spring in the mattress because it's that old. If I was... More

We spent two nights in this lovely, historic property two weeks ago. The staff, especially the proprietor and bartender (Rene?), made our visit very welcoming and comfortable. It's not every property where you are greeted by the proprietor, and he was visible throughout our stay, clearly proud of his fine establishment. The decor is very well suited to the history...

The hotel staff were warm and welcoming. A wonderful example of Bolivian hospitality. Amazing views of the white city from our room and luxury hottub. The adjoining travel agency supplied us with suggestions for restaurants, like El Solar, coffee shops,maps etc enhancing our stay in their beautiful city

The building has been lovingly converted into a hotel while retaining its original beauty. The decor includes a classic blue courtyard and yellow cloistered walls that draw in the city's wonderful light. Our room was spacious and elegant with a fantastically comfortable bed! We loved the antique writing desk. Breakfast was fine if not as varied or featuring as much... More
