First off, I'm a tough crowd; I'm pretty picky when it comes to where I stay, so please read this with that in mind. I arrived into La Paz at night and couldn't find my first choice of where I wanted to stay, so I ended up literally stumbling upon this place. The front desk doubles as the bar for the restaurant downstairs and the bartender was also the receptionist for the hotel; a very nice guy who spoke English and agreed to show me the room before I committed to it. The room was clean but very small; granted, I was traveling alone, so it worked for one night. But had I been traveling with a companion or been there for more than one night, this wouldn't have worked. The bathroom was adequate (also small, but everything worked). The hotel also offered free WiFi, although there was no desk or table to use with your laptop. All this said, the location was great (right off the Malecon), the air conditioning worked perfectly, I had plenty of hot water (and cold water; sometimes in Mexico that can also be a problem), the bed was OK and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. It just seemed that for the size of the room, the price should have been 1/2 of what I paid (even after the discount I was offered). If you're by yourself and have the attitude of "it's just a place to sleep", this place would probably work for you given the lcoation and the fact that everything works. If you want more space, look elsewhere.
