It was nearly impossible to find a hotel for the Oruro festival. Luckily after much research I found this place. I had to book for 3 days and it was very expensive due to the carnival. I also had to send half by Western Union to reserve it. The rooms were on the small side but nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast was grand and the waitress there was really nice. The wife of the hotel manager, I think her name was Mariele, was super nice and helped us get the balcony of the Plaza Hotel to see the carnival. The Plaza hotel is a dump, but the terrace was the best place to see the carnival without getting paltered by water balloons. We also had the company of some really great Bolivian people that explained the dances and what was going on. We had the buffet lunch there the first day, but they had run out of food and we had to wait for them to make some more. The next day we brought some sandwiches. I didn’t see any other hotels there, but I doubt that there is a better place since this is a new business hotel that caters mainly to business people. Oh, be carful with the sun the air was cold and I was standing in what seemed a mild sun. I got so burned!
