DIAS ESPECIALES EN LA PAZ

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Gloria La Paz
Rooms are vey tiny. Heating controlled centrally and is way too hot for comfort and the pipes must run under the floor so the floor is hot too.

There is 1 hair dryer for the entire hotel and it has exposed wires. The best thing about this hotel was leaving it.
