For anyone who needs to be in the center of old Santa Cruz, this is a well situated hotel. It has a nice pool, good breakfast, and accessible to the town center. Internet is poor. Air conditioning is not always reliable.

We have stayed at this hotel for many years and have always been happy with the hotel. The location is central with the main square and lots of restaurants nearby. If you want to be downtown, this is the place. Rooms are clean and shower is excellent.

This was our first visit to Bolivia and was our first hotel stay and the only bad experience we had in Bolivia. We arrived after a very long flight to be told they could not find our reservation. We sent two emails and called twice before our arrival. The confirmation I had received by email was not valid according to... More

My father and I stumbled upon the Canciller after spending a night at the awful Hotel Viru Viru, a place in which you got electric shocks from the shower. The Canciller has an excellent location with lots of restaurants and services nearby. The hotel amenities are fantastic! Large bedrooms and bathrooms, great pool and sauna areas, an excellent breakfast buffet... More

I went to this hotel and made a reservation for a couple days later after going to Copacabana. When I came back they couldn't find the reservation and the rate went from $35/night to over $50/night. Ended up staying at Hotel Lido right around the corner without any reservation $35 / night with breakfast. Therefore I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

Our room was quiet, good sized and clean. The hotel has little charm but is just a block and a half from Santa Cruz' main square. The pool is inviting as Santa Cruz is hot this time of year. Depending upon why one is in this city, the Canciller, is an option. The dining room is nothing special but it... More

Nice Rooms with all the ammenities. We were given a 'group' discount and paid about 40 USD for a large room with two queen sized beds. The hotel was clean and secure, the staff was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was good... a lot of food. The location is good for tourists as you can walk just about anywhere in... More
