Hotel Europa has a good location with some good restaurants nearby (Vienna for example). It has amenities of a five stars but prices much lower. For US120 we got a large room with TV, AC, soundproof windows and bathroom with a tub and heated floor. Included in the rate was a delicious breakfast with a lot of fresh fruits, eggs etc. It has also has a wonderfull swimming pool and a gym (open from 10AM to 10 PM).

We had two one night stays here on our way to/ from Uyuni. Both stays were on the 12th floor - enormous rooms with lounges. the 12th floor is well above any street noise so adjacent schools were no problem.
Check in included a welcome drink and coffee at the bar - a nice touch.
We found the proper breakfast excellent and the serve yourself continental breakfast at 5am perfectly adequate.
Buffet lunch in the cafe (full of locals) and bar snacks were very good value by European standards.

I stayed here my last two nights of a 3 week South America trip. It was a nice break from some of the 2 stars I had stayed in along the way. Very nicely appointed, modern, upscale and with a great restaurant. Just what I needed to unwind before the long flight home. Very centrally located just off a nice walking and shopping street. Very large rooms with nice luxurious bath. Stayed on the 8th floor which had great views of the breathtaking canyon walls and mountains. Would definitely stay there again should I have the occasion to visit LaPaz.

We stayed here during our recent trip to Bolivia as part of a wonderful holiday arranged for us by Imagine Latin America, the second year running we have booked through this company, and once again they didn't disappoint us and provided a fantastic experience. The hotel is big and modern, rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast very good. The main problem we had was with the noise from the school next door from around 7.30 a.m. until after 9 p.m. also on arriving on a Sunday evening we found that the bar closed around 8 p.m. so we couldn't get a drink or snack. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the city centre and so is fine for a short stay.

We stayed here - in La Paz - for 3 nights after almost 2 weeks travelling around in Peru and over Lake Titicaca (which is about 2 hours away by car). It's conveniently located - on one of the main thoroughfares. It was comfortable enough but the breakfast (which was included) was pretty basic - and you had to hunt down the egg lady/egg man. The gym was awful - we stayed here instead of another place because of the gym but the equipment was old and only had one treadmill and was broken. Also - the fitness centre (which included a reasonable swimming pool) was closed on Saturday mornings which seemed crazy!

Wifi was included and it was reasonable

Overall - stay was ok but don't expect a European quality hotel

We stayed 2 nights on a tour. Compared to our previous hotels in Peru this was a palace. Saying that it was better than some UK hotels I've stayed in. The room was large, beds big and comfy. Pillows were small but there was more in wardrobe. Had pool, sauna etc. My wife had 45 min massage for approx £20. Can't comment on food as didn't eat there. Hotel situated near to town. My only criticism was the safe was a little small for iPad and rest of valuables. I would recommend the hotel for its cleanliness and location.

This hotel is very dated.
Our room was furnished in the most curious way. A fitted desk arrangement gave very little room at the foot of the bed and a chair and table were wedged between one bed and the window making it impossible to use either the chair or table or access the window.
The room was stifling and the bathroom had underfloor heating which was on full blast. It was like a sauna. We were unable to adjust the heating temperature so our first task upon arrival was a request to the front desk to either fix the heating temperature or move us to another room. A guy came up and told us that he had disabled the heating but the room was so hot it was difficult to tell whether he had succeeded or not. We slept with the window open which was not too bad considering the central location of the hotel. It could have been noisier.
While we were waiting for the room to cool down we met friends downstairs in the restaurant for a casual dinner and drinks. The service was dreadfully slow and the food was not great.
La Paz is a vibrant and busy city so the location of this hotel is good to get around and enjoy the place. I am unsure whether there are better hotels in the city or if this is it. Bottom line if you choose the Europa is don't expect too much. Use it as a base and get out and enjoy the city.
