I've given this hotel a one star rating not based on any one particular bad incident, but because that's what the Hotel Bolivar is; a one star hotel.
But even one star is being generous. I would call this place a hostel. I am astounded by some of the good reviews here. The rooms were disgusting. The "furniture" dilapidated. The door did not close or properly lock. They provided us with one small bed for two people (not related) who were sharing a room. Dirt and filth everywhere. Bare light bulbs for lighting. A noisy atmosphere that lies somewhere between a college dorm and a prison.
This is the first hotel I have ever paid to NOT sleep in. I had some urgent calls to make, but once completed I checked out, paid the bill and went to the Anselmo Hotel down the street. (Please see my stellar review elsewhere on tripadvisor).
As some of the other reviews here indicate, the location of the Hotel Bolivar is great, but you would get a more comfortable night sleep if you throw a rock though a store front window and spend the night in the neighborhood jail.More
