We stayed here for three nights in Jan/Feb. Esther, the Swiss-born owner, speaks at least five languages, and made us feel welcome. She was extremely helpful in our stay here.
El Angel Azul was originally a court building. It has a charming couryard with lovely flowers, cacti, birds, etc. Esther has decorated the courtyard beautifully; it was our little oasis in the middle of the city, and we spent hours relaxing in the courtyard each day.
El Angel Azul is located centrally, two short blocks from the main Cathedral, and just a few minutes walk to the coastal promenade, the Malecon. Keep in mind that because you are located in the central city so you will hear some traffic at times; I am sensitive to noise but found the noise level in my room to be acceptable.
You will have a very basic room. Don't expect fancy furniture or decorations. The rooms are extremely clean, though, and owner Esther's workers are busy keeping the place spotless.
The price of a little over $100 for two people is reasonable considering that you will also get a nice breakfast.
One suggestion: While you are in La Paz, take the 3-hour snorkeling tour of the harbor where you will swim with whalesharks, the largest fish in the world. It is quite an experience.
