“Great location and friendly staff, but small room for the price”
Reviewed February 8, 2010

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.

Thank you for the review and I want to take the opportunity to publish that we had an e-mail exchange after your comments. I think it is correct that the the public knows that you happened to
rent our smallest room ¨Syros¨as explicitly stated on our homepage. I am happy that you liked
everything else and are looking forward to your next stay in one of our other 8 larger rooms.

I am just back from 6 weeks traveling in Mexico. Before I tell you about my lovely stay at the Mediterrane I want to dispel some notions about Mexico. The media have been seriously rubbishing Mexico. Do not listen to them.

1. I did not have my head cut off by a nasty drug dealer.
2. I felt incredibly safe.
3. The Mexicans are welcoming, respectful and honest.
4. The buses are comfortable, run on time and inexpensive.
5. The streets are clean.
6. I did not catch swine flu.

OK, now for Norbert and Saul. Their hotel is 100 metres from the beach where I swam every morning. My room was clean, comfortable and well priced. All the staff were charming and Norbert and Saul were great company.

La Paz is a lovely city and well worth a visit. You have to do the boat trip to Isla Espiritu Santo and swim with the sea lions. Truly awesome.

Thanks guys for a great welcome and wonderful stay.

Abrazos to all at the Med.

This hotel is very convenient to the waterfront as well the heart of the old city. We stayed five nights in the "Mykonos" room at the end of January, and we were pleased overall with our stay.

The room was clean and there was a shower. Linens were plain but refreshed daily. We even had a bit of a view of the Malecon from the balcony. Despite this, we did not notice much street noise.

Their cafe serves hot breakfasts starting at 7:00 a.m., so you can get a good start on a full day's actvities. They also have a wonderful swiss meusli if you prefer.

We ate dinner twice at the adjoining restaurant, La Pazta, and enjoyed both meals. Entrees were well prepared and an excellent value. A dessert highlight is the nusstorte.

Some things to consider -- the bed was quite firm, which took a bit of getting used to. There are no phones in the rooms, but they do have a wi-fi hotspot so you can stay connected.

They're open and welcoming to a diverse mix of travelers. Overall, a good value!

We chose this property for 2 nites, purely for the fact they'd take our pooch. We were assigned the Paros room. When I walked in the first thing I noticed was the broken floor length mirror and the curtains sagging from the rods. The bathroom 'mat' was actually an old mexican throw rug that should have been tossed along time ago. The shower was badly / permanently stained. This room was in desperate need of a remodel. The king bed sat on a wood platform that squeaked with the slightest motion. Neither my husband nor I slept either nite. They had place mats on the night stands which were stained .

We are not 'travel snobs' and have traveled all over Mexico. For the money, we felt we could have done better. There was a minifrig and TV. Other amenities: bar of soap and a bottle of water. If you've never been to Mexico, often shampoo is not included and never hair dryers or irons. You're right off the malecon so it's noisy all night. If you're deadset on this property, ask for an upstairs room. The young guys who worked the front desk were extremely helpful and this is the info they gave us...stay upstairs next time. We had breakfast there (I see this hotel is listed under B&Bs but it is not...) and it was okay....

  • Liked — Accepted pets.
  • Disliked — Bed was terribly uncomfortable and noisy.

We spent 8 days in April at Hotel Mediterrane and were very pleased! Nicely decorated rooms, friendly, cooperative staff and they allowed pets! We found the hotel quiet and no traffic noise at all! Very secure setting. Also great restaurant with wonderful pizzas and other Italian selections! Great location in center of town for walking on the malecon and exploring downtown area!

  • Liked — location to city center, allow pets
  • Disliked — sometimes lack of parking in front of hotel

We were to stay at this site for 14 days. We arrived early afternoon and went to our room. The street noise was so bad that we could not even take a nap. The hotel is about 1/2 block from the very busy malecon (main street) and has 2 other streets near by. The windows are not thermalpane and therefore do not block the noise. The staff are friendly and we tried 2 other rooms, but were still noisy. This 2 hour process cost us $93 USD and we then moved hotels.

We then wandered down the malecon looking for another hotel.

We stayed for four nights in January 2006.

This is a Greek-themed hotel, very near the beach, with plenty of character. Our room was quite small but comfortable and clean.

The hotel is set just off the Malecon and so is relatively quiet but has easy access to the main attractions.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

The hotel has a great coffee bar (the best coffee we've had in Mexico - authentically Italian - and great breakfasts) and an excellent restaraunt, serving great value, Italian and Mexican dishes.

There are some steep steps up to the rooms on the first floor.

We enjoyed our stay and would return.
