Think we were the only ones staying in this huge colonial hotel. The building has character and is based around 2 colourful patios. Comfortable en suite room + good TV with standard Bolivian breakfast included. Wifi down during stay unfortunately. Very helpful staff who arranged our mine tour through American Tours.
B$150 per room.

Again, not very happy about it, we both had a soup as well as some cold pasta for Aurelie, and an egg roll for me. With not much else to see in this town, we went back to the hostel and rested some more (I fell asleep again) before trying again to find somewhere to eat. The evening ...
