We had a wonderful stay at Apart-Hotel Anteus in January 2010. There were four of us, so we decided to spend a little extra money for a two floor, two bedroom apartment (with an additional twin mattress rolled into the living room) instead of getting two double hotel rooms. The apartment was spacious, extremely clean, always had hot water and the service was phenomenal. This was refreshing since our first night in Cochabamba we stayed at hotel/hostel that is popular with backpackers, but was absolutely disgusting…erratic hot water and the sheets looked like they got changed once a month (Hostal Colonial). Apart-Hotel Anteus was a welcomed upgrade. The cost of the apartment for each of the four of us was $18 USD a night, about $10 more per person compared to our original hotel, but it was $10 extra a night very well spent (breakfast was included).
It is not located in the exact center of town, but a very manageable 10 or 15 minute walk. However, many of the popular restaurants, clubs and bars are within a few minute walk of the hotel, so we thought the location was great. Plus a cab to the exact center of town only costs $1 or so. We originally laughed at the Lonely Planet when it said that Cochabamba has a very Mediterranean feel, but after staying in this part of town, we realized there was some truth to it (especially after visiting La Paz).
As a side note, across the street is a great restaurant (La Villa) and its owner prides himself as having the cleanest kitchen in Cochabamba. The 3-course lunch special was delicious and it only cost 15 Bs (~$2 USD). We went a couple of times and were very impressed with the food and the ambience of outside patio where the tables are located.
We had an amazing week’s stay at the Apart-Hotel Anteus and highly recommend it for travelers who want to spring for an extra $10 a night to stay at place that is up to western standards.
