Elegance Hotel
Ranked #38 of 77 Hotels in La Paz
Reviewed August 16, 2010

This family hotel is run by Marcelo Ramos Guzman. . He organised our midnight pickup from the airport and even accompanied us the next day to the bus station to buy our tickets and make sure we got on a safe bus to Cochabamba. Nothing was too much for him. The rooms, especially on the top floor had a fanstasic view over the city and even a private enclosed balcony. The breakfast was simple but adequate - the only minor point.

We stayed here for 4 nights interrupted by a trip to Copacabana for one night. Marcelo the assistant manager helped us arrange the Titicaca trip. Marcelo is very courteous and helpful in every way a manager could be plus extra. For example when we wanted to go earlier than the breakfast time he arranged for the breakfast to be ready for us even though it was outside their breakfast time. The breakfast was very nicely presented too on each day we were there in the Elegance. Because we are vegetarian, Marcelo went right out of his way to find vegetarian restaurants or places serving vegetarian food. It was nice to be greeted so courteously each time we entered the hotel. The safety deposit was good too. Because the managers appear to live at the hotel you can always access your safety deposit 24 hours. The views of La Paz are stunning. There is a very nice atmosphere at this hotel as all the staff are very polite. The location is in Miraflores in Savedra St. When taking a taxi just say Savedra because if you add Bautista it confuses the driver for some reason. Say Savedra cerca futball stadium- then they know right away. In Savedra street there is everything- a supermarket, a phone place for international calls, a barber/hairdresser, a pharmacy etc all within walking distance of the Elegance. Taxis are cheap, I think diez (10) Bolivianos to most locations in inner La Paz. I don't like seeing hordes of Lonely Planet type backpackers so the location being well away from that area was for me a plus. On the other hand you can get to that area quickly and cheaply in a taxi. The views of La Paz are better than Raddison's a 5 star. The rooms are clean and the shower is excellent; the toilets flush well which in La Paz is a definite plus. The view is indeed stunning. Breakfast as well as being good food also has wonderful views of the city. There are other pleasant sitting areas outside the rooms with views assisted by well-placed ceiling windows. There is a lift too. The staff really are great and do things like hail taxis for you in the street. I would recommend this place and will be returning myself soon. Marcelo by the way speaks good English.

Due to a delay in our travel plans we had to chage hotel because where we were staying (Rated number 3 on trip advisor) could not accomodate us we walked down the road to find The elegance Hotel . For 350B we are staying in a Suite complete with a proper sitting area ,a kitchen and the best shower i have have in 9 months of travel in South America We are on the 5th floor with stunning views across LA Paz.. The bed is comfortable and the room has Cable Tv and wi fi (great connection)The staff are super friendly and speak English. I had problems with my laptop they organied someone to come and fix it . It is a family run place and they are genuinly there to help. Very different to some hotels
The Lobby lets the place downa little but who spends time in the lobby? Everywhere is less than a dollar taxi ride from the hotel or a 15 min walk to themain plaza. First time that I have writen one of these but the pace was so good I had to write about it.

The hotel is a little away from the action but is clean, spacious, has WiFi and cable TV in the room and there are computers free to use and breakfast is included. The staff really went out of their way for us and I`d recommend this hotel. Price wise, it was 270-300 Bolivanos which is higher than a hostel but is reasonable for a business hotel.

My group stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks and we loved everything about it. It's in a great location (a 15 minute walk, or 1 dollar cab ride from the downtown area), and the rooms are new and luxurious, with large windows that offer beautiful views of the city. The breakfast is generous, but pales it in comparison to the friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is run by the sweetest family and is very reasonably priced. It's what I'll miss most about La Paz and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
