We went to this hotel having read about it in Lonely Planet. On arrival, the staff were unaware of our booking, and we were eventually taken to a room where they were still in the process of cleaning it and changing the bed sheets. The 'double' bed was particularly small, approx a 4 foot job. The bathroom rarely had hot water. The roof has great views of La Paz and the location, particularly for the surrounding markets, is great, and quite untouristy. When we asked about the rate, we were given different ones by every member of staff - this is definitley negotiable. Additionally, when asking female staff to order taxis, they went out into the street and pay the taxi driver around B/5 and then charge you B/25, pocketing B/20 for themselves. We returned to La Paz twice in the following month and stayed elsewhere both times in much better places.
