“Nice modern rooms, good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

Stayed on and off for a week seeing La Paz and doing day trips. Very nice hotel staff, very efficiently run. Rooms were light and bright and roomy. Bathroom was large and modern. Seemed like an oasis after the noise and bustle of the surrounding city.

Not quite what one would expect from a hotel that is supposed to be of 4-5 star quality. Breakfast was a disappointment with the most junior and inexperienced staff being on duty. Would only recommend this place with full knowledge that there are shortcomings.

Hotel is quite centrally located for tours of La Paz

The staff was very friendly, the food was not so great though. The rooms very comfortable and the meeting rooms very comfortable too. The wifi internet was not very good in the rooms, but it was ok in the lobby and meeting rooms

Stayed here 3 separate times during a 2 week trip to Bolivia. Rooms and bath are comfortable. Although my bathroom was warm, my bedroom was sometimes cold at night. There can be outside street noise, music, etc. The hotel has 2 restaurants: a coffee shop and a fine dining room. Both are adequate to good. Service can be slow. The lobby bar has about 8 computer terminals with free internet access.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2008

The Europa is supposedly one of the best Hotels in La Paz and Bolivia. By international standards this is not the case, but By Bolivian standards this is as good as it gets. After you spend some time in Bolivia you will realize it is all a bit dated, just turn back the clock 10-15 years. This is also part of its charm.

The hotel is “modern” and clean with comfortable room and beds. We saw several rooms and they all looked very similar to the photos. We even saw the “Presidential Suite” which is a larger version of the regular rooms with more furniture. It was supposedly renovated a few years ago with what looks like left over dated furniture from the early 90’s. The hotel has great views of the city. There are 2 restaurants in the hotel the one for breakfast (which is not run by the hotel but an outside operator), which is marginal at best. There is also a “fine dining” restaurant in the hotel that server some of the best food we had in Bolivia. There is also a charming restaurant and shop next to the hotel in what used to be a former embassy.

Overall this is a great choice for La Paz. You can walk everywhere (if you can catch your breathe) The staff is accommodating and you will be very comfortable.
