The hotel is in a nicer part of the city - Sopocachi. Nicer restaurants nearby and traffic on the street outside, Capitan Ravelo, is not as crazy as elsewhere. It is not too close to the tourist attractions, but not too far. The area looks like more for the local middle or upper middle class when they go to the city.
It is an aparthotel - and the size the room is big as it is an apartment by itself with a kitchen and a big bathroom. The sleeping room is separated from the living room, and you can actually live there for months. I stayed here at the end of my trip to Bolivia, after the visit to the Salar de Uyuni and other remote areas, the big bathroom is a real treat with hot showers.
The decoration is not the latest, looks more like early 1990s. The best of the room is that it comes with a balcony with good view of the city. the balcony is huge, and I think on a sunny day, you can actually suntan there!
The lobby of the hotel looks classy, more a business hotel or for longer stay definitely than one for tourists. The hotel charge a very reasonable price as my stay probably is during a low season for business travellers.
I also stayed in another hotel La Casona, and they are two different types of hotels. It is not easy to say which one is better, and I think it is a matter of personal choice and preferences. To me, having this hotel at the end of my visit to Bolivia is a good ending which I prefer.
