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.

Walking around the ruins was surprisingly hard work. Back down in La Paz, we had an evening of Bolivian folk music and dance - it was a real tourist trap but at least we knew that beforehand and despite leaving before the end, we had a fun evening, ate some tasty llama stew and some of the costumes were ...
... games in English. My Spanish is the best so I tried first. We were directed upstairs to where the vip tickets are sold for a mere 45 bolivianos. They did not have the same session times as signed downstairs so not able to see session. Go back down to double check. Get sent back upstairs to be told the same thing in Spanish again. Repeat twice. Give up and go 10 pin bowling. 10 pin bowling It is clear Bolivians do not bowl often. I heard a lot of balls being thrown in the air ...
... but after giving it a sniff, I can honestly say that whoever wore such a wonderful smelling scent would be guaranteed to have at least a bit of my attention. I wanted to spend longer scanning the shelves because all of this really did intrigue me. But I had to press on. There were so many presents to buy and food to eat and such little time.
I had my breakfast/lunch/dinner in a spacious cafe, on the corner of a road I had spent most of my Bolivianos on ...
IŽd heard so many scare stories about La Paz, about people being mugged and robbed, luggage stolen, pockets picked etc that i confess i did view my journey and time there with some trepidation. Bolivia, while super cheap compared to other South American countries, is considered somewhat dodgy. But i had 3 travel buddies from my Uyuni tour and i think we were all reassured by each others presence. It is one of the poorer countries in SA and you can see ...
