TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Eldorado La Paz
this hotel was built in the 60s and nothing has changed. The rooms are reasonably comfortable and warm but its very tired.
All of the linens and towels are threadbare and chewing gum grey.
Staff are mediocre - not particularly helpful and everything seems like an effort. Its like they have better things to do (ie stand around gossiping) than help guests. I had a tour company leave a message for me at 6pm - but it was not given to me when i returned at 8pm - instead reception decided to ring me at 11pm to give me the message (WTF?!?!).
There is also major construction going on outside the hotel - which goes from 7am - 9pm. Breakfast is again mediocre - the eggs are always cold (and look like they've been there for at least an hour) and the bread is often hard.

We were then treated to an Awasi style appetiser where they provide drinks and nibbles on a red checked table cloth (and table) right there on the shores of the lake with the sun going down as they wrap you in a warm fluffy bath robe - surreal? yes, did we mind? not at all!! The sun set changed the colours of the dunes every few seconds - from orange to deep reds and purples - just gorgeous. An amazing start to our experience. we then were dropped ...
... late 1990s. Given how integral coca is to daily life in Bolivia (regardless of the cocaine situation), this provoked widespread resistance led by Bolivia's first indigenous president, Evo Morales. His hardline stance on legalising the use of coca led to further trade suspensions with the US, which can't have helped economically. After a dodgy first night in La Paz when I was locked out of my hostel and thanked someone somewhere I keep my passport, credit card and a bit of cash on ...
After a couple of days recovery in Arequipa I headed to Puno to meet Caragh and Rosie (both from PA). It was a nice change to actually see some people I knew!
We were up early the following morning to head to the Uros Islands, otherwise known as the Floating Islands. The Uros tribe moved onto islands made of reeds in Lake Titicaca to avoid conflicts with other tribes. However what is left today is essentially a tourist site, the current inhabitants are ...
