“Good option in La Paz”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is a small nice hotel in front of the malecon. The room I stayed in was spacious but it felt like it was not well ventilated and the minibar was a little noisy and the beverages in it seem like there were there for a long time and they were also expensive. But there´s a convenience store a block away and you can go there and buy your own beverages. Breakfast was good and well served. Staff is kind and helpful.

The Posada is a small hotel, with only eight rooms. It is a great location - but I would choose a different place to stay on a return visit.

We were on the ground floor in the small building fronting the main building - above us was an open-air sitting area. Breakfast was served in the second floor open-air lounge of the main building (except in case of inclement weather, when service moved into a small dining room). The only access to these areas is by stairs.

Our room was comfortable, but could be improved. Clothes for the stay were stored in a small armoire or in the drawers of a large chest occupying the space under the windows. The windows looked out on the little courtyard, and had light curtains but no shades to draw - so the lights from the patio kept the room fairly bright at night. Other patio rooms appeared to share this problem. Storage in the bathroom for personal toiletries was very limited. The sole bed cover was a heavy duvet - with the invariable problem of "too cold, now too hot." In the room itself what appeared to be a pillar turned out to be the base of a palm tree growing through the ceiling, and through the upstairs lounge! Piped music starts at 8 am - the staff will lower the sound level if you ask. There is no soundproofing, and conversations outside in the patio echoed in the room. Rooms in the main building, on a higher level, are probably quieter. Breakfast options were very good.

There is no parking for the hotel, you will simply find a space on the street in front. We stopped there for several days without problems.

Posada is a Mexican word for guesthouse so as some of the reviews point out it's not necessarily what you might expect from a hotel. It is however a a really good place to stay in a great location right on the Malecon. The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and have good sized bathrooms. The bed was one of the most comforatble I have ever stayed in when away from home. The pool is a little on the small side but there's enough to do in La Paz to keep you out and about over a few days stay. The breakfast offers plently of choice (and they even make decent coffee) and is served upstairs in on the terrace which has the best view you can imagine across the bay. The staff were excellent and really went out of the way to help. For a hotel of this size and price I couldn't review it more highly!

We stayed at Posada de las Flores for 3 nights in January, at the recommendation of many TA users. We had a nice stay, but there is definitely room for improvement. This used to be a personal residence several years ago, and it is absolutely beautiful. Classic Mexican architecture, saltillo tile floors, beautiful wood doors, beautifully decorated and a perfect location on the historic Malecon. We stayed in the best, and most expensive ($300/night) room in the place - room 470. It was a large suite with a bedroom, a sitting room with a HUGE outdoor private patio with comfy chaise lounges and Adirondack chairs, overlooking the Malecon and the bay. My wife and I spent most of our time on the patio, with had plenty of sun - even in January.

From a location and aesthetic standpoint, this place it the best in La Paz.....but here is my problem. There is ZERO service or amenities. And even though it is technically a "B&B", when I pay $300/night to stay somewhere, I expect a few things. The free breakfast was nice, but there is no access to coffee until 8:00am. Not an in-room coffee maker, not a coffee station in the lobby....NOTHING. When I asked the front desk about morning coffee service, I was told to walk over to the mini-mart. When I needed an iron (it was New Year's Eve, and I wanted to iron my shirt), I was told that there was only 1 iron and it was being used. There was also no ironing board - not sure how I was supposed to iron without one. There was no bar service at all, even though they have possibly the best outdoor patio in La Paz. That patio SCREAMS happy hour and bar service. I did not understand this. The staff is nice and responsive, but they are not there full-time and you are out of luck if you need anything late-night or early morning. Parking was "iffy" at best. There is no parking lot, and you park wherever you can park. One day I got a spot in front of the hotel, another day I had to park around the block. Fortunately, La Paz is a very safe town, and I was never worried about my car. Another minor, yet annoying issue was the key and door locks. The room key is attached to a square piece of wood that is obnoxiously large - it reminded me of a gas station bathroom key. My wife could not fit the key into her evening bag - that's how large it was. We painstakingly removed the key from the wood and were able to trandport it. Also, there are no door handles or turn locks - to lock the door (inside or our), one must insert a key and turn it several times. After a while it got annoying.

Let me summarize - this is an absolutely beautiful house with really nice rooms that are cleaned daily - but this is not a hotel. You will get breakfast in the morning - and that is it. You are on your own after that. After a couple days, all I could do was think how much potential this place has, and I wondered why the owners didn't take advantage of it.

For $300/night, I would probably stay elsewhere next time.

Room Tip: Room 470 is worth the money. Bring your own booze, your own music and your own snack food, because y...

This small B&B has location, location, location on the malecon in front of the Sea of
Cortez and the staff was friendly. But that's where it ends. The nice big room we stayed in had a view of a dried palm leaf roof, spoiling the sunsets for which La Paz is justifiably famous. You could lean over the balcony to watch the sun go down, but you could go down with it as there is no railing. Take a dust rag and spare light bulbs; the fixture in the bathroom hadn't been dusted since it was bought and was missing two bulbs.
The chandeliers in the bed-sitting room put out as much illumination as a strong flashlight. There
was no lamp by the sofa or on one side of the bed for reading. The other light fixture had
pretty dicey wiring and could only be turned off by pulling the plug. The breakfast
except for the fruit was pretty bad. Furnishings throughout were tasteful and probably expensive,
but there was no sense of individualism. With a large selection of charming bed and breakfasts in
La Paz, this one for the money was not worth it.

Room Tip: Suite 470/ The only Room with a View of the La Paz Bay

A rather quaint hotel, located on the Malecon and close to many eateries. The staff was friendly, helpful. We enjoyed daily breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the bay and the Malecon. Nothing fancy but certainly adequate. It was helpful to have English speaking staff on board for those times that you can't find the right word in Spanish. The hotel had comfortable beds. The traffice noise was annoying but endurable. The hotel needs some TLC and one area of concern is the locks on the doors to the room. You must lock yourself inside the room with a key...there is only one key. In case of an emergency this is a rather unsafe practise. I think that the owner could spend very little cash and improve the cushions/coverings to spruce the place up..It is a great place to spend a night or two, but a week was too long...no access to morning coffee until 8:00 a.m. This is not a hotel where you will sit for hours by the pool, the pool is an after thought and small, the lounges are crammed into the area. This is a hotel that encourages walking the Malecon and visiting the many local establishments. Worth the stay.

Room Tip: The upper floor seems a little more private and removed from the traffic although be prepared to cli...

Always a pleasure to enjoy La Posada de las Flores. Just accross the malecon it a has great location. Quiet but close to the night life, nice deck for drinks at sunset or any other anytime. Good and generous breakfast made fresh. This boutique hotel is the nicest and certainly most luxurious property in La Paz.
