“Best B&B ever”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

This is the 4th time my wife and I have stayed at the El Angel Azul in La Paz in the last 7 years. It was as fabulous as ever. Esther is a great hostess. The rooms are very comfortable and the inner court yard is beautiful and serene. The breakfast is wholesome and served by friendly staff. The price is reasonable. We always look forward to a few days of r&r in this wonderful setting.
Pam & Tony L

Room Tip: All the rooms are good as they all face into the inner court yard.

A big thank you to the Inn keeper and owner, Esther, and her friendly staff for a very nice and relaxing stay in the Angel. I stayed here early December for 5 nights with my 18 year old daughter. The courtyard is stunning and visually inspiring. Every little corner has something interesting to look at. Both my daughter and I spent time walking around taking photos. The dog and cat are sweet and make this place even feel more homier. It was quiet, close to town, very safe to walk around in the neighborhood to downtown at night for 2 women. The rooms are comfortable, and you can read other reviews for more information. Highlights were: Esther's helpfulness, her thoughtful tips for trips, restaurants (and even the recommendation for another hotel with pool, because my daughter wanted to be near the ocean and pool for a few days) etc., the breakfast, the mexican christmas decorations in the courtyard. It felt like a home away from home. This was our "base" for a 4-day kayak trip as well and it was comforting to know that we could store all other luggage in a safe place at the Angel. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

My girlfriend and loved staying El Angel Azul.
We had just driven from Todos Santos and were welcomed into the most charming court yard.
It felt like we entered into an oasis after a hot drive.
We found the Swiss staff reall personable and nice, im actualy amazing that people have reviewed this place badly. Everything about this place is charming and feels real and extremly safe.

If your looking for something authentic and don't care and not having shower gel then this place if great.

Room Tip: Take the Terrace room its amazing to have a balcony all to yourself.

Our very first response upon arriving at the Angel was "oh wow!". As we entered the front door we felt as if stepping into a live set of "Frida", the movie. We were heartily greeted by Esther, the proud owner of the Angel. Esther is a hostess through and through; not only is she relentless in ensuring everything looks impeccable and story book like, she also goes out of her way to make her guests feel very much at home with excellent tips on where to dine, drink and (in our case) dive. She arranges everything for her guests (even a movie night on a particularly rainy evening when nobody felt like going out) so you can just sit back and relax.
Esther's staff too, are extremely friendly, always smiling and willing to give a helping hand to tend all your needs.
Our room (one of the "historical" ones) was lovely, beautifully decorated, nice and cool (didn't even need the airconditioning at night) with a great walk-in shower.
Thanks to Esther and all the staff at the Angel we had a most wonderful stay in La Paz that saw us leaving revived and re-energised. THANK YOU!

A beautiful B&B with a lovely and photogenic courtyard, funny and beautiful rooms, a very hospitable atmosphere and a really helpful owner. We spent 5 nights and 5 wunderful days in La Paz, a safe city, where we could walk from the B&B to the Malecom, different restaurants (on suggestion of Esther,thanks!) without any problems. We have spent wunderful hours on the different nearby beaches. We will come back!

Room Tip: We had a look in all rooms. All are very nice, different and decorated in a mexican style.

The first impression was very pleasant as the atmosphere seems to be hospitable and the courtyard is really cute. However, after we dealt with the Swiss manager/owner and paid approx. 110$ per night in advance for a double room, we found on the bed the so called "rules of El Angel Azul" composed by 3 sheets and more than 40 detailed and really strict orders explaining the real "environmental friendly" spirit of the maison. Just to give a very preliminary taste:
1) The first statement of the decalogue is that they "WANT TO EDUCATE THE TRAVELER". This sounds like a very bizarre statement to people in their 40's..
2) They do no provide shampoo nor bathfoam since they say each traveler has to bring its own necessaire.
So if you don't have yours, forget about having a restorative shower...
3) Even if you don't care tto much about foam, forget also about having a hot shower since El Angel Azul do not provide you hot water during the summer...and you know about that only when you are taking your shower.
4) Finally if you want to take a rest and enjoy some cool air from your air conditioning split forget about regulating the temperature as you prefer since the air conditioning system will not allow you to do so but will just moderately refresh the room.
5) And don't be afraid about forgetting to turn off the air conditioning or the lights when you go out, since the management reserves the right to do that on your behalf by entering into your room....

If you are looking for a true military experience go somewhere else and for sure you will pay less....

Reviewed 22 July 2012

My partner and I recently stayed at this fabulous place after 4 straight nights of primitive camping in Baja. It was the perfect respite from the elements. A warm welcome from the owner was followed by ice cold glasses of limeade. The owner also arranged for off street parking of our car (full of camping gear) for a small fee. The room was welcoming, peaceful, simple, tastefully decorated and cool, with excellent air conditioning and a very comfortable bed. The shower was refreshing, although it was interesting that there was no hot water (it is not provided in the summer months). I didn't need it, as La Paz was very hot indeed in July, but the lack of hot water in the summer should probably be more prominently advertised. The courtyard is an beautiful, quiet, colorful and shady place to hang out and unwind. The location of this B and B is wonderful, also, within short walking distance of La Paz's beautiful town square, cathedral and many shops and just a few blocks from the malecon. The summer breakfast of fresh fruit and yogurt was a delightful contrast to a lot of heavier Mexican food we had been eating on the trip. Esther, the owner, was friendly and helpful and the staff in general was quiet, efficient and very hospitable. The combination of the ambiance of this magical place and the delightful spirit of La Paz makes for wonderful memories.
