We stayed at 5 different hotels during our trip to La Paz, and the Hotel Ritz was in the top 2! Booking was easy, I did it online and was surprised at the very reasonable rates. I was able to email the hotel and arrange an early pick up from the airport. A driver was waiting for us outside customers with a sign. We arrived on the 5:30 am flight from Miami and were able to check in immediately. We were shocked to find out our room had 2 bedrooms. The second room ended up being my staging room for my suit cases and clothes. I loved it! It also had a very nice living room and stocked mini bar. There were also bath robes which I loved. The bathroom was a nice size, pretty standard looking...it did the job. If I was going to nitpick: the dryer could only be used on the low setting and I wished for a coffee maker, instead of ordering room service. Breakfast is included and it was good. You must try the café con leche. We were junkies after the first sip. As for the location. It was great for us. We don’t mind taking cabs to sights. The Witches Market can be crazy and this hotel is in more of a residential location. It is La Paz, so you will never get away from the street noise and car honking, but a room at the top floor did wonders. Around the hotel you can walk to a Cafe Alexander, Saltena shops, Mongos (restaurant that gets hoping after 10pm) and Cafe Beirut. Also, the double decker tourist bus has a pick up across the street from the hotel. There are 2 restaurants in the hotel: Duke's and the cafe. Dukes was wonderful! I had some traditional Bolivian fare, lengua in picante. My family is Bolivian so I know it was good. The cafe....not so much. Think chicken tenders and microwave pizza. I would avoid it. The staff was wonderful, bilingual and very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
