“Great location for peace and quiet in Sucre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was a really nice place to stay in Sucre. The location is excellent, only half a block from Plaza 25 May, the main square. It's also close to a couple of good, gringo-friendly cafe/bars, Florin and Joy Ride Cafe. The hotel is peaceful, with a lovely courtyard and relaxing ambience. The room was good but perhaps not four star - we had a to ask for a second towel and there was a bit of a gap under the door (luckily we were staying in summer so it didn't matter). Service is friendly but brush up on your Spanish as the front desk staff (except one lady) don't really speak any English! Wifi is free and very strong. Overall I would recommend La Posada.

We overstayed at the La Posada due to a stuff up with our bank in Australia and a courier company, a very long story and a very long wait. If you have to wait somewhere, Sucre is a nice town, very sedate and comfortable. And the Hotel La Posada is THE BEST place to stay. The staff are lovely, friendly, helpful - even making numerous pone calls for me to track down the couriers. The breakfast is good, but it´s the beds and showers that really make the place - beds are comfy and the showers are HOT with excellent pressure and fluffy towels! The rooms are clean and airy. There´s also lovely hang-out areas in the courtyard and a great restaurant onsite. Couldn´t fault the place.

Located 1/2 block from main square with friendly and courteous staff (I don't know what quinn88 got up to??). Based on a colonial style house with 3 courtyards it is a peaceful haven apart from some scraping of furniture and clip clop of stilettos on the tiled floors.
Breakfast is good and the restaurant serves very good meals. We stayed here for 4 nights in October and were very happy.
This hotel deserves it's good reviews!! Some people are maybe a little too " picky"!!

We stayed there for three nights in August and had a excellent experience. Great location, just off the square; an oasis of calm after Potosi and Uyuni. Comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, good breakfast buffet-- sorry to hear of quin88's experience as we had very helpful staff. We also did not have a full complement of towels--but they brought extras unasked and promptly. When we had to stay an extra day b/c our flight to La Paz had been cancelled, the front desk staff helped us get into touch with the other airlines in town directly. Lonely Planet calls it "well worth the splurge" and while it is only a splurge in Bolivian terms, it was certainly well worth it.

Room Tip: Adjoining rooms had thin doors between them and noise could easily be heard between them.

Yes this hotel is in a good location and the rooms are OK although the shower a bit tempremental, but that is it. It is the only hotel in Bolivia that we have stayed in with rude and unhelpful staff. True, my Spanish is basic but with sign language and smiles I have managed in Chile, Uruguay, Argentina and Bolivia. Here the reception staff made no effort to try and understand. When we arrived we were given a double room with 1 towel. I tried twice to get more towels but only when I found a nice smiley maid did I manage to get them. I tried to get my laundry back and was blanked. We tried to eat lunch in the restaurant, the outside terrace was full of smokers so we moved inside but they would only serve us if we moved to a small table by the door, close to the smoke, even though the restaurant was totally empty. When we left we were totally ignored when we handed the key in and managed to pay our bill with no eye contact, no smile and no thank you.
The people who have praised this restaurant must have been served by different staff. I would never return and never recommend.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights in July and couldn't find a single fault. Location is perfect, bang in the middle of sucre just off the main square. Friendly reception and restaurant staff, beautiful rooms with the most comfortable beds we have found in south America, and spotlessly clean modern bathrooms with power showers and hot water 24/7. An absolute bargain for such a high spec hotel, with super fast wifi and we loved sucre so much that we stated an extra night. The breakfast offers a huge selection of hot, cold and continental options and the courtyard restaurant is also one of the finest in the city. Would recommend this hotel to anyone above anything else on the city. We miss it already. You have to stay here, you will not be disappointed.
