Central location, back to the 70s

by David V on 05 Nov 2016 (Business Traveller)

An ok hotel near the central plaza estudiantes and the Prado. Once a fancy business hotel, now a bit outdated but still with a lot of his old charm. Ok breakfast, prices around 250 bs. Good for business trips or short stays in La Paz.

Experience not worth of a three-star hotel

We did not originally intend to stay, and so did not reserve rooms, at El Dorado Hotel in La Paz. Instead, we were sent here by Hotel LP Columbus (for a review of Hotel LP Columbus, see my profile). We stayed at El Dorado Hotel for three nights (02-05 July). The accommodation at El Dorado Hotel was subpar. Despite living on the sixth floor, its central location meant that we could often hear traffic noise, even during the night. Areas such as the windows and heaters were visibly dusty and may ...

Great location and value

Bed sheets don't fit the bed at all so you slide around - We slept so badly! - decor is very dated. Bathro...

Not bad for a 2 star hotel

by Dajoma on 25 Jan 2015 (Friends Traveller)

The place is a bit old and run down. But, everything is clean and works. The WiFi in our room worked well. The breakfast of bread and jam was OK. The hotel is well situated centrally in town. The street can be a bit noisy, but we slept well, probably because we were tired after the long bus ride of the previoius day. The hotel is good value for money.
