I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The room was spacious with a spectacular view. The dining room and food were excellent (Desayuno = 15 Bs, Almuerzo = 17.50 Bs and Cena 21.50 Bs). All are served buffet style and desayuno comes with the room. The gardens are lovely. There is a nice pool and sauna. There are games and a playground for kids. However, three things keep me from recommending this hotel. First, the toilet seat was filthy when I arrived. Secondly, the owner's young daughter came into my room using a pass key without knocking, supposedly to turn on the porch light. Thirdly, we were watching TV in the lobby when one of the staff came in with another guest and changed the channel, without asking us, in order to watch a movie (BTW, the other guest apologized himself). See also a separate travelogue under Coroico.
Unique Qualities: The view from your room and the dining room are unsurpassed. I understand the climate is like Spring year-round. If you want to just relax, this is a great place to do it. I was on a tour but the regular rates for a deluxe room were $13-17.
Comparison: about average
Directions: Through town and up the hill
Price: less than US$20
