I arrived at the hotel after a flight change and did not have a reservation. Staff helped me find a room I liked and mosquito proofed it on request with a spray. The rooms are functional and surround a leafy courtyard. I would have liked blinds instead of see through curtains but chose a room in the back so there... More

I stayed at the Oriental twice, before and after an amazing trip to Berraco del Madidi - an excellent eco-camp in the jungles of Madidi National Park (possibly the best place in South America to experience the Amazon and see amazing wildlife with superb guides). Hotel Oriental is right on the plaza, so it's very central. All the ground-floor rooms... More

We liked this place. Decent rooms, breakfast included (though typical buns and fruit), wifi worked well (better closer to front of hotel), water in showers was hot. Nice hammock area for relaxing. We stayed there twice on either end of pampas trip and would recommend it to others.

I stayed at the Hotel Oriental on a Saturday night and regret it deeply. For 100 Bs, the hotel was adequate but it is next to a bar/disco that blasted music until 5 AM. Loud dance music until midnight. Then Latin until around 3 AM. Then loungey Latin from 3 AM to 5 AM. It was almost hellish, even with... More

Upon return from the Madidi Jungle, I had to stay in Rurrenabaque for one night before taking the next morning flight to La Paz. I met someone on the trip who recommended the Oriental Hotel, so I booked a night there. I was given room 17. After I put my luggage in the room, I noticed a lot of ants... More

The hotel has a great garden with even mango trees and you can relax in the hammocks. Also the breakfast is simple but good. The rooms and bathroom were dirty. You must alwas turn the ventilation on as it is really hot. Wifi signal really bad in the back rooms.

We stayed just one night in a double room before going on a tour. For the price it was great value and whilst no frills it was clean and comfortable. Lovely shady outdoor space with some hammocks. A decent breakfast and very nice staff. Great value.

More backpackers than 5 star but still beautiful. Basic, clean rooms where you are woken by birdsong, beautiful central area with hammocks and swinging chairs to relax in. Very safe. Breakfast basic but fine. Lots on nearby restaurants for dinner. Beware of traffic on the square on a Friday night cruising around seems to be a major pass time and... More

For the price its good value. Rooms are very simple but clean. Family run by friendly folks. Breakfast also simple does not even include an egg. Common area / garden is very pleasant and why you should go. Wifi poor. Good spot in Rurre close to the nice quiet square.
