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.
If you open the window the fumes and car horns keep you awake.
There is 1 hair dryer for the entire hotel and it has exposed wires. The best thing about this hotel was leaving it.

The half day tour was more than enough before we headed on to La Paz by bus. For some reason the bus company insists on running an impossibly tight connection on the the Bolivian side of the border (given the lack ...
... behind us and in front the driver and a young man in the passenger seat. The three hour drive across the new death road was still treacherous with our driver over taking cars on blind corners and we had a near miss with an oncoming car. Early on in the journey we stopped at the bit where the driver has to pay a toll and so all the cars crawl along. On either side of the road are women in matching blue aprons selling fried chicken and boiled corn. I bought three pieces of fried ...
... nature and 'Pachamama'- we burnt some gifts and then received a blessing for good luck. We found this very humbling and amazing to experience the culture of others.
It was now that we headed back on our catermeran- here we had a lunch of quinoa soup, chicken and Bolivian potatoes, and mango ice cream! We also decided to spend this journey on the top deck as the weather was gorgeous and we had a panoramic view of the lake!
