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 also sat in the sun on San Francisco square soaking up the the hustle and bustle of city life here while eating ice cream. We bought our last few trinkets before going back to Cafe del Mundo for our last supper here. In our defence we did try to look around at menus in other restaurants to shake things up a bit but we were tired and dusty and we just wanted food that we knew was good quality. We werent disappointed either, the food in that restaurant just seems to ...
... Israeli friend from Lima, Netanel, recommended called Hostel Inti Wasi. It's a great location and a good price at 30 Bolivianos (US$4.50) so I've made my home base here. I really haven't done too much, all things considered, though I did take one of the telefericos (cable cars) to the top of the city with some dudes from the hostel where there was a giant market that happened to be taking place that day. I've played some music, walked around a lot ...
... ll stay in touch, hopefully with some kilo climbing. On the plus side I miss the welcome meeting which sounds delightful. We are told we must mingle, cos we are of course, antisocial. And that he cannot believe we're not going out - I suggest he comes to share some toilet time with me and he may realize why. My tummy sort of settles over the course of the day but a lovely cold develops - do I have aids?! I make it down and manage to meet the new guys who seem nice, if a bit ...
... our table, people trying to take a seat. That must be the moment that one of the guests decides to pick Maartens telephone from the pocket of his jacket, hanging over his chair. Our first meeting with La Paz matches the Lonely Planet description and the signs on the wall. Beware of petty crime. The rest of the evening cannot be spent on finding beer and a proper restaurant. We have some administration to do, like changing passwords and blocking the ...
... Lake Titicaca was diabolical and cost us an hour to negotiate. Then there were road works leaving town and we missed the turnoff. Twigged some 25 km later and set a course on dirt roads to correct. This was fun with two fords and a variety of farm type tracks. Disaster!!!! Colin's side bags fell down and he lost most of his contents. The bags don't look to good either.
The GOOD points - The day was fine and the ride around Titicaca was blissful - Then unbelievable good news - ...
