“Good find”
Reviewed April 29, 2006

The Apart Hotel Alcalá seems to be a fairly new and relatively unknown hotel. It has fully furnished apartments with bedroom, bath, dining/living area, and kitchen with gas stove and refrigerator. They provide you with pots, pans, and dishes.

It's a rather simply adorned place without a lot of frills or amenities. But the rooms, appliances, and bathroom fixtures are modern and very clean. The layout is rather peculiar. It is actually two buildings that sort-of twist around each other. But my apartment had lots of light and windows on two sides.

The hotel is very quiet and secure. It's located on Plaza España in Sopocachi, which is not as convenient for sight-seeing and tourism, but not bad for many business travelers as there are quite a number of office buildings nearby, including many international aid and cooperation agencies. The drawback for tourists is that the center is a very steep 20-30 minute walk from the hotel. The good news is that taxis in La Paz are quite cheap and a ride downtown will only cost you US$1 or less.

The only other drawbacks I see our the fact that it doesn't really have internet access(Although it is advertised for US$3/hour, I never could get it to work.) and breakfast is kind-of lame. The restaurant's food is uninspiring, but fine--general international fare. But, you have your own kitchen, so if you're there long enough it would be easy to stock up and prepare breakfast or dinner in your apartment. The internet problem is relatively easily solved by the presence of an internet cafe only 3 or 4 doors down from the hotel.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. In general, the area, though quiet and residential, has most of what you need (dry-cleaning, copy shops, internet cafe, office supply store, bread and snack shop, and a few cafes within a 10 minute walk).

I would definitely recommend this hotel for business travelers or for those on extended stays. At $50/night ($60 for a double), it is a better value for the price than most of the downtown La Paz hotel's I've been inside.

Dear Lisa, Thank you so much for your comment, we like you to know that now, we improved our services, First of all, we changed some furnitures, we made apartments more comfortable and bought more appliances, Breakfast is now a buffet and is always getting improved. The entire hotel has free Internet Access, we have two providers, just in case. We are near to yellow cable car line, (just two minutes away) so, our location is more accesible, and you can get a sight-seeing and one of the most beautiful view of La Paz city, we hope that you can visit us soon, best regards, Luis Gutierrez
