“Amazing hotel in La Paz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We spent two nights at Stannum Hotel on the last leg of our trip and decided to treat ourselves. We were not disappointed. The hotel location is very handy (2mins from Plaza Isabela la Catolica where the hop on/off touristic buses depart) and the hotel itself is amazing. The view from our room was incredible, overlooking La Paz with the mountains as a backdrop, and the room was beautifully appointed, with crisp white bedding and designers bathroom. In addition to the fantastic view, the staff was really professional and friendly (especially Jesus who talked us through the key things to do in La Paz while we enjoyed our complimentary welcome cocktails). The breakfast was delicious too. We had an amazing stay in the hotel and highly recommend it!

We stayed at the Stannum for 2 nights while in La Paz and it was excellent. It is located on the other side of the city from the airport, so takes a while to get to - about 45 mins in traffic, (which can be horrible), but is worth the drive. It has about 20 rooms and is located on the 12th floor of a new building that contains a shopping mall, gym, fast food and movie theaters. We were lucky enough to get a room that is (south facing?) with a stunning view over the city and the Illimani mountain.
From our first encounter with the porter on the ground level, ( I am sorry I forgot his name Jxxxx ), who greeted us with a huge friendly smile, to our interactions with the rest of the staff, our experience was really positive. The receptionists English was excellent. We ate one night in the hotel restaurant, which was very good and enjoyed our complimentary pisco sour before dinner.
We walked, albeit slowly, due to the altitude, from the hotel to most locations in the city and although La Laz is a teeming city did not feel unsafe at any time.
We did not have any wifi issues.
Strongly recommend!

Dear guest,

We would like to thank you for the comment posted and sharing your experiences with all the TripAdvisor followers. We are very glad to know that you had such an amazing experience and that you were able to enjoy our service and the stunning views of the city and the mountains from one of our rooms.
The area where we are located is residential and hosts many of the embassies and corporate offices so, it is safe and since we are close to the city it is quite easy to get there and around.
Hopefully you will be available to visit us again in the near future.

Best regards

Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. The room was nice with some design, was also spot less, and had a great view on the city. Only one small issue, the wifi in my room was quite weak. I stronlgy recommend this place for a stay at La Paz.

I really would have liked to give a rating of 3.5, which unfortunately is not possible.

What I liked about the hotel:
- Unusually nice and helpful staff
- Very clean and well organized
- Good food (We had breakfast and one dinner, which was reasonably priced for a hotel)

What I did not like:
- Our room was quite small, in my opinion too small for a hotel this category.
- The room / hotel design is contemporary (dark wood, small purple color and bright lamps) - the hotel design could be anywhere in any city, I have seem many of those and I missed the local flavor.
- In comparison to other cities in Bolivia (i.e. Santa Cruz), the hotel was expensive.

Stannum was a very good, clean hotel with helpful and friendly staff. We checked in early in the morning, and they were very good about everything. They were very prompt with answering any questions we had prior to our trip. It's pricey but worth it, if you're looking for a comfortable hotel in La Paz.

Just finished a one night business trip to La Paz. SInce I did not know of any hotels, one of the first mentioned to me by a Virtuoso Travel Agent was the Stannum Hotel.

Looking for as little stress as possible the hotel was perfect. They arranged the airport transfer for me. Everything worked in the room etc. The staff was unerring in their willingness to help with anything. There were two very pleasant surprises during my stay. The first was the restaurant, it is small, but never crowded while I was there. The surprise was the quality of the food - very impressive. The second surprise and totally unheard of in most hotels I stay in is that a member of the staff volunteered to translate for me when, unexpectedly, the people I was meeting with did not have their English speaking representative with them. She saved the day! Thank you Marcia!

I noticed the hotel had a fair mix of business and leisure people staying and I can highly recommend them for both groups.

There will be no other choice on my return visit to La Paz!

This hotel was great, the best so far in Bolivia, everything I'd expected and more. It was clean, modern, excellent customer service, and the staff were willing to help with our specific needs. They also spoke good English.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains.
