“Fabulous little guesthouse”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Absolutely perfect, we extended our stay in Sucre by 2 days just to stay here! We didn't want to leave the house! Wonderfully designed house, big, light filled rooms. Edo is wonderful and has all the information you on Bolivia, Sucre and the surrounds. Huge breakfasts, great kitchen. Beautiful views out across the city to the hills. Great value!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the upper floors, great views and great light

We stayed at Casa Al Tronco for two days in December 2011, and wish we could have stayed longer. It's a small place (three rooms in a private villa), and lovingly decorated and maintained. The family is exceptionally friendly and helpful, and my friend and I both thought that this was the perfect bed & breakfast and great value for money.

Room Tip: paying the extra money for the top floor room (a large double) with a view is very well worth it!

My stay here was really lovely. The interior decorating here is superb, and it's a quiet, peaceful stay. The disadvantages for me were: no restaurant service. Location is far from the center of town and if you take a micro on the way back (it's uphill) they are usually overcrowded and very slow. I also didn't have hot water the first night (electric water heater didn't work). The next day it was fixed. However, they offered no discount from the bill to compensate for such a huge inconvenience to a hotel stay.
Nonetheless, for Bolivia, this is an exceptionally nice place.

What a wonderful eagles nest this place was! My husband and I stayed for nearly 2 weeks in the end- we couldn´t leave!
We were greeted by a sunny sitting area every morning! The best place to do our Spanish homework in the afternoons..
Owners very friendly and helpful- helps that we were close to the Mirador cafe (only 2 minute walk)- the best food and views in Sucre- all meals we had (we had lots) were outstanding.

We stayed in Sucre for 2 nights while travelling through Bolivia, and booked one room at Casa al Tronco. It was one with shared bathroom, but it's only 2 rooms that share that bathroom, so no problems at all. Warm water in the shower, which is not always the case in Bolivia.

It's a small guesthouse with only a couple of rooms, but it's very friendly, clean, well run and modern. Being in Bolivia, it was a very high standard! Could have been in Europe.

It has some great views over the city, from the communal kitchen balcony.

The entrance looked a bit strange, but once you get into the court yard, everything changes. So don't be too put off when the taxi driver drop you off in front of Casa Al Tronco.

Highly recommended place, one of the best places we stayed at in Bolivia, and the value is unbeatable.

It gets cold in Sucre during the nights, but the place kept an OK temperature indoors, and you get plenty of blankets, and a real duna.

This place is absolutely amazing. Not least for the stunning views from the immaculate kitchen which is a world away from the usual hostels you find yourself in. The only problem is you won't want to leave. Check out the Italian mirador cafe 5 mins away too - great food and proper coffee.

Casa Al Tronco is close to the Plaza de la Recoletta on a hill in Sucre! We had the suite which is their best room... with stunning views of Sucre, a big bed, heaps of space and an ensuite! The other rooms are nice enough, but this one will blow your mind! There is a very good equiped kitchen on top of the building which also offers amazing views! All in all there is only 7 beds in 4 rooms in this place which makes it very homey! Ebo and his wife Tania will do everything to make your stay amamzing! They also do serve breakfast: the muesli is lovely!
