“The best bar in La Paz, by far....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

CasaBar is the top-floor bar at Casa Grande hotel in the southern suburbs of La Paz. At CasaBar you will find a great setting, decor and ambiance and the music selection is perfect for the fine cocktails and good food. Highly recommended in La Paz....

Modern, light and trendy. In a nice area of town with a huge supermarket a few mins away. There is a fab bar on the 8th floor and the downstairs restaurant does great food (though too large portions). Everything we asked about or requested was dealt with efficiently. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. I'd highly recommend this oasis of calm. The only negative was that the internet speed in the rooms was painfully slow, so when sending a photo in an email I needed to go to reception. There is a nice indoor pool too and a fairly good gym !

Room Tip: Ask for a room far away from the lift as it does quite a loud ding noise when it arrives at the floo...

Amazing hotel.. Fantastically decorated... Brilliant food... Very clean but service at reception was awful. Everything took twice as long as it should! If they improved this it would be a fantastic hotel in la Paz!

We just spent two nights there. Great value for the price. Comfortable beds, awesome shower. The location is perfect. The staff are polite and professional. It's a boutique style hotel. With lots of little of little details. The restaurant YerbaBuena is very good and make a very good dry martini. Breakfast is included with the room and is quite pleasant just some of the pastries aren't the freshest. There is a bar on the last floor that has great view and atmosphere.
Internet is horrible! It cuts in and out like every minute and made it impossible to do just about anything online. It didn't have enough velocity to even video chat on FaceTime or Skype or send a simple email. Very very frustrating! If you need good internet that's reliable, you should stay somewhere else. That's about only negative thing about the hotel. There are other little details, but we are in Bolivia and it's a new hotel, so they have to still work out all the details.

Room Tip: Don't get a room under the bar cause u can hear the music till late at night.

Spent 2 nights, brand new beautifully designed hotel with nicely appointed and ample rooms, way over average service by warm, smiling staff. Nicely equipped gym that most of us will require at least a day of altitude adaptation before using. Very nice pool, good bussiness center. Had very good dinner in the hotel restaurant and the breakfast offer is fresh and reasonably varied. Internet speed is OK, plus there simply is no high-speed internet in Bolivia.
Would confidently recommend this hotel.

Great place to stay. Drops 1,000 feet for those people that arrive in El Alto at the Airport. Every foot lower helps! The staff is great--but dust off your Spanish skills as their English is practically non-existent--but they try to be helpful. As discussed in another review, the internet quality was hit and miss. Huge problem for the business traveler--which we had one in our group.

The restaurant in the hotel is excellent. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served and we loved every meal--and the staff was excellent.

The room is very nice, and the light in the hotel during the day is stunning. It is also all about location. Close to any kind of store and restaurants abound in the area. Only 20 minutes from downtown La Paz. Locals say that La Paz, in the city, is not as safe as it has been in the past--especially at night.

Be sure to visit the open air markets, enjoy the journey from the city to Calacoto with its beautiful gleaming bridges and new roads. We lived in the area many years ago, and it has changed immensely. Our little Zona Sur is one of the big boys, with it's gleaming skyscrapers and new office buildings.

for a luxury business hotel, it has excellent decor but for the poor task lighting.
It is a total letdown on the 'terrible' internet quality in all rooms and public spaces ...
the staff recognise that and seem frustrated themselves
no concierge, and poor english-language skills with front desk staff

Room Tip: terrible inernet, so as a business traveller one wastes a lot of time
