I really liked the hotel. I was arriving late the first day and leaving very early on the 3rd day, so I thought it made sense to stay close to the airport. It worked fine, but it is really in the middle of nowhere. The only night that I was there, I ended up ordering room service, because it would... More

NOT a five star hotel but adequate for an overnight close to the airport. The access to the hotel is difficult to find coming from the airport. Where's the driveway?? We arrived late at night and the receptionist could be mistaken for the garage mechanic... also, there were no towels or toilet paper in the room. Things were better in... More

Following up on my first review from 2015, I have stayed at the Sun another 2 times with the same impression: clean & spacious lobby, restaurant & rooms with friendly staff to either take you into town (if you wish) or call you a cab (about 10-15 minutes away).

This is an excellent place to stay. It could not be better located (literally on the corner of the main square with a view on the cathedral). My room was clean and spacious. Service was super friendly and efficient. I think past reviewers are forgetting that this is Bolivia and with this in mind, in this country, this is one... More

When we arrived I saw 5 stars under the sign in the lobby. It's a beautiful lobby and pool area and the rooms are also decently designed. Our overall experience was more like 3.5 stars. I can't really say how things work in Bolivia since it was my first time there but it was definitely different from actual 5 star... More

Stayed there several times. It appears at first to be a nice motel. The minute you walk into any of the rooms you can smell the black mold from numerous water leaks from the roof and leaky plumbing.The cleaning staff tries their best to mask the unhealthy smell with bleach water, which only adds to the horrible smell. The only... More

I just got back from a night at the Sun Hotel. The room was very nice and comfortable and the breakfast was nice. The staff at the main desk were not too friendly and insisted on speaking English. The bellboys were friendly and helpful. I thought the place was not worth $140 a night. I essentially stayed here because I... More

The people are very nice and helpful. Since I arrived early in the morning after 12 hour trip and having trouble at the airport, they gave me a free massage which was very good and needed.

This is a good, clean, convenient hotel close to the airport. Great place for a sleep over layover, but too far from the city if you want to do sightseeing. be sure to request the courtesy pick up from the hotel. it is free. included breakfast is adequate.

It's not a bad hotel, the service and the rooms are good. You can make you own BBQ and they will give you the implements. The only thing y don't like about this hotel its that is located too far away from the city. The massage it's highly recommended.
