very friendly and helpful (even charming) staff at the reception, very chic and stylish interior design, very comfortable, excellent bar, superb views of the city panorama. we had a great stay here.
great location, close to restaurants and shopping areas.
i would surely stay there again.

Room Tip: la paz is a noisy city. even at floor 12, there were 2-3 car alarms that annoyed us a lot at night...

I stayed in room 1215 for two nights.

pros
- really friendly and help full staff. stuff is young and refreshing.
- i got the impression that the staff really want to do the extra mile regarding client service
- as you can expect from a new hotel, everything is working fine (tv,internet, toilett)
- if you like to have a good view, stanuum is on the 12th floor of a mall
- breakfast very good
- gym excellent
- well working business corner

cons
- rooms (windows) are not sound-proofed. so you here the traffic even on the 12th floor. mainly early in the morning when traffic starts again, this is not nice. for that price category i would have expected sound proofed rooms.
- price: internet (e.g booking.com) rate is USD 126 per night. this is reasonable compared to other boutique hotels with similar services I stayed during my travel (including Chile and booming Peru). The price range was always USD100-120. Nonetheless, regular price at Staanum seems to be around USD 180. According to my experience, this is an outlier and the extra value of USD 60 would not be clear to me. Have a look at internet rates.
- single bed room (1206) is very small. two bed room (1215) has a fair size. some rooms are very close to the reception, i think this might be a source for further noise

Further comments:
location: its quite a way walking to iglesia san francisco and plaza murillo which i consider as center. 10-15min per cab (10 bolivianos). but the neighbourhood is good.

charisma/charme: mac-donalds principle: you know what you get (modern, chic, functional rooms with the typical lounge music), but boutique hotels (tend to) look similarly. Not very personal environment. Rather business style. If you want to compare with an more personal approach, have a look at La Loge which is close by.

To sum up: if you like the boutique principle and you are not very price sensitive, give it a try. If you want it more personal and "thats my home" feeling and/or more in the center. I recommend to check other solutions.

Clarification
average for value: depends on which price you get
average for rooms: depends on if you get a smallish or a well-sized room

Room Tip: if you like it quiet, try to get a room as far away from the reception. maybe the rooms at the back...

Stannum is an amazing hotel, the personnel is super friendly, the location is very good and Ingrid on reception was very cool and helpful.

The food in the menu is really good as well as the breakfast. You should definitely give it a try.

This was by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. The room is a bit small, but the staff is extra friendly and the bedroom is very comfortable. Also, it is located on the 12th floor of a mall and amidst many embassies, like Norway, US and Brazil, which makes the hotel safe and conveniently located. There is a supermarket right across the street and an Aleksander Cafe downstairs, which is very helpful. Very friendly staff and thoughtful service compensates the lack of experience.

Room Tip: View from the mountains =)

Stannum blew us away. The views, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast including lots of fruits, hot choc & omellette! Ingrid on reception was incredibly helpful & spoke English very well. All the staff were helpful & looked into all sorts of requests for info from us, and gave us handy safety tips. We enjoyed the use of the gym in the complex every day. We extended our stay four nights as we loved it! Thanks in Australia we would pay much more for the standard of this hotel.

I stayed here in januari-februari 2013 working for the Duth Embassy in La Paz. As stated by other reviewers± it is small but very comfortable hotel with a lot of personal attention and a great morning breakfast. The rooms are very well decorated and the beds are always crispfresh. On the groundfloor there a center with a a lot of small restaurants, a Cinema and toyshops. I went to see three movies there.

Room Tip: The room at the frontside was a bit noisy from the cars in the the streets.

The hotel is on the 12th floor of a skyscraper with a shopping mall on the first floor and offices in between. What this means for the traveler is that all the rooms have great views and are high enough up to be away from street noise. The staff was truly wonderful, helpful and happy. I was here on business so I can't speak to how a tourist would fare here but my acid test for service is the Wake Up Call. Half the time you never get one, but some poor soul called me precisely at 4:15 a.m. and had a cab to the airport arranged and had coffee ready. Bless them. It is brand spanking new - opened in December 2012 - so everything is in tip top shape and the staff was always professional and eager to help. It's in a quiet part of town which I also came to appreciate after a long day and has great wi-fi and a good working desk, necessities for me. A real gem.
