“Excellent stay for the weary traveller”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We have been roughing it up for a few weeks and decided to splurge for two nights. Excellent room with a view. The shower was the best that we have had since arriving in South America, good pressure and nice and hot! The bed and pillows were just amazing. We had a problem with our reservation, but the staff fixed everything quickly. Excellent location to wander the street.

Only annoyances were that breakfast wasn't ready on time (normally starts at 7 but was ready at 7.30), so we missed out on the second day. Also, I ordered honeymoon decorations for the bedroom and they weren't done. THe staff tried to rectify the missed decorations as soon as they heard but unfortunately it was too late at night.

Despite the above, definitely worth a stay.

Room Tip: Room 1213 had an amazing view and was nice and quiet.

The hotel is located on the 12th floor of a building that houses a shopping center and movie theatre. The hotel has a dedicated elevator so guests do not need to wait long. The views from the rooms are spectacular.

The staff is extremely attentive and will accommodate any request you may have.

The breakfast is excellent, with a wide variety of local foods.

The Wi-Fi is free and good speed for a hotel connection.

Great rooms with excellent views. Very helpful staff and a business center with quick computers where I even managed to edit a video.
It was the first hotel where we could choose any drink from the list as a welcome drink (caipirinha) and not just some juice or house cocktail.

As a mature couple still travelling to places which challenge our senses and our physical abilities, we appreciate luxury where we can find it. At 3000+ metres, the hurly burly and ups and downs of La Paz is challenging to people in their sixties. That's why we were so thrilled to have a place like Stannum Boutique Hotel to call home for three nights. The room is beautiful and spotless and a perfectly comfortable bed and a fantastic view. We appreciated the WIFI, chocolates, excellent toiletries and soft toilet paper. The breakfasts were varied and tasty, with the offerings of pancakes or eggs and bacon supplementing the fruit, pastries, and cereal offered. We had dinner one night in the hotel which was a treat for the eyes, but a bit over-priced for its quality... but certainly acceptable. The location in a good business district with a mall and cinema below was convenient for "taking care of business" as well as sightseeing with taxis cheap and plentiful. As good as the hotel is, I have left the best for last. In all our travels to countless hotels in almost 100 countries, I cannot remember a staff who were more welcoming and genuinely friendly. They made us feel special, and enhanced our enjoyment of La Paz, We cannot say enough about this hotel.

Room Tip: As for a view of the mountains.

Incredible, one-of-a-kind view instantly puts you at ease. Friendly, helpful staff, great breakfast. Location is 20 min walk or 5 min taxi ride from Witch's market, but is directly on top of a shopping mall with restaurants, shops,gym, and movie theater. Boutique hotel-- so there are few guests, a lot of attention, impeccable service, cleanliness, and care. Definitely will stay here when I will return to La Paz.

Room Tip: All rooms are on the 12th floor with an incredible view.

Staff were brilliant, with personalised service, the rooms are perfect and food and drinks at the restaurant was top class and great value for Le Paz. Do yourself a favour and stay for a night or two.

I stayed at the Stannum Boutique twice and was impressed both times.
Modern and with stylish decor, it is a welcome retreat from the busy streets of La Paz.

After we had some trouble with our flights, the staff could not have been more helpful and even found us another hotel to stay at as they were already full.
Needless to say our one night at the Mitru (closeby to the Stannum) did not come close to our experience at the Stannum.

I would also well recommend the restaurant which was very reasonably priced and served delicious Bolivian cuisine.
