    Don’t really recommend

    Staff very friendly, good hospitality. But beds were not comfortable and too small for 2 European persons. Shower was a disaster: Water heated electrically was extremely hot but with 3 cold beams... very annoying.

    The front desk lady was very accommodating to us. She allowed for an early check in, was extremely thoughtful & kind. She organized a taxi to the airport & met us prior to us departing very early in the morning. The room was extremely cold, the procedure of paying & reserving on Expedia seemed unfamiliar upon check in.

    Les conditions extérieures dans la ville de el alto fu très difficile (véritable guerre civile), impossible de sortir de l’hôtel pour notre sécurité. Le personnel a été incroyable, aux petits soins, j’espère que la situation va se remettre pour eux. Je recommande vivement cet hôtel.
