“Little Italy in La Paz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Wonderful hospitality in a quiet part of town. Emmy and Mauro will take you around and arrange for any kind of trip you want. Everyone else has mentioned the great breakfast so I don't have to (although don't miss the orange jam) but the espresso coffee is the best this side of Naples.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

We couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay having read all the reviews on TripAdvisor. Our hosts Emy and son George were natural hosts as though we were family and welcomed us to their comfortable home. The rooms face onto a picturesque courtyard containing a pool in partial shade - a treat for the very hot days in La Paz. We decided to take Emy up on a authentically cooked italian meal - she did not disappoint and we thoroughly enjoyed her company over a glass of wine each night. La Paz is unspoilt and quaint with many opportunities for swimming, sightseeing and eating good food (especially fish). We took a recommended tour to the outlying islands with Espirtiu Santo: great value at 790MXP each for 8 hrs of sightseeing, snorkelling, chasing dolphins and orcas including a tasty fish salsa lunch. Absolutely the highlight of our holiday. We liked La Paz and would probably prefer it over Los Cabos with all its hussle and bussle and increasing hotel building - if you're into nightlife and golf, it is for you. La Paz is the poor neighbour but with lovely unspoilt buildings, good food and quiet, sandy beaches with clear warm water.
One precaution we would add is that cards are not accepted (although you can use it to reserve the accommodation), but there is a HSBC nearby. Also, as said in other reviews, it's a bit of a trek to the malecon, but if you don't mind a walk, its not bad and taxis are cheap. It was beneficial being on the quiet outskirts of La Paz espcially when there's a celebration downtown!

We believe this is the most beautiful place to stay in La Paz. Our host and hostess, Mauro and Emy are wonderfully warm people, always with a quick smile or a helping hand in planning anything we wanted to do. The accommodations are extremely neat and tidy and possesses the ambiance of a beautiful villa complete with a pool. We have stayed here twice now and eagerly look forward to a third visit next winter. (Ray and Linda)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2009

We felt very well cared for - a good breakfast every morning in the outdoor courtyard and a genuine, empathic responsiveness to all of our questions. She is really what makes this inn special! The inn itself is simple and clean with a small pool.
The only negative is that it is in the middle of town and there isn't much within walking distance. The Malecon is about two miles away. It would be best to have a car if you stay here. Otherwise, it is a fine home base for exploring La Paz.
