“Regal But Spoilt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Spanish speaking staff, who speak very rapidly made being understood, and understanding them, at times created difficulties.
I am really torn between rating this Hotel as Average or Very Good, even though I probably skew towards the Very Good, particularly when they went to the trouble of providing me with what I assume to be one of the best rooms in the hotel. My room was extraordinarily spacious, and came complete with refrigerator, sofa, coffee table, dining table with chairs, bedside lockers on each side of a Queen bed, dressing table and chair, work desk and chair, and television set on a movable stand (not hung from the wall as so often is the case).
It is also very well located to the Bus Terminus and city centre.
All this makes me feel guilty about giving the hotel only an Average” rating. However, there were a few negatives which I thought serious enough to draw back my rating of this hotel. Firstly, it is located on a main road, and without double glazing, even five stories up, it is very noisy. Secondly, hot water appears to be very scarce if at all existent. Thirdly, while it is a nice touch to have a padded toilet seat, it is smaller than the actual pan, so that you and the seat slip quietly into the bowl.

Room Tip: You may lose the view, but an internal room away from the road wouold be much quieter

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

With the usual accuracy of Bolivian buses we arrived at this hotel at 0430hrs on Sunday 7th August - the day after Liberation Day. O f course the hotel was fully booked and we should have not arrived until much later.

Check out at the hotel was not until 10am so a long wait beckoned. I cannot praise the receptionist highly enough. He sat for an hour phoning every other hotel in town, trying to see if anybody had a a spare bed anywhere. He gave us free range of fo got cleaners in to the room instantly to get it ready for us. yer to leave big rucksacks , gave drinks and let us doze. Basically let us take the foyer over. Thankfully a guest left at 8am and our host
got a cleaner in straight away for us.

He did not charge us an extra night which other hotels do if you turn up early in morning.

the hotel was spotlessly clean with wifi and the staff continued to be very helpful.

a quick word about the breakfast - fantastic. could have eaten all day !!!

very recommended
