I will preface this by saying that this review may come off as negative, compared to the other glowing comments on here, but I like to be honest and realistic, and manage expectations.
The good: location was great, wifi worked very well, the pool, although fairly chilly and in a low green-house enclosure was nice to have, the patio area even nicer, the breakfast good, the bed comfy. Rene was very helpful. There was also always drinking water available from the large dispensers, which I appreciated to reduce plastic bottle consumption.
However, in my mind, this is really more a very upscale hostel, than a bed and breakfast (although you do of course get a bed & quite a nice breakfast). At the lower end of the price point, I get the sense this place would be a fabulous deal, primarly due to the common facilities, lounge area with TV, fridge, etc. If you have been staying in accomodations at that end of the spectrum, I also would have thought this was heaven.
Having no idea what to expect for my money, at the $40/night for the more "premium" rooms, I was a bit surprised at the pillows that were ready for the bin, with pillow cases that did not fully envelop said pillows, lack of a window that could open and the noise transfer from the lounge area through openings in ceilings, the shower enclosure that had cracked, with dirt coming through - basically, all the little things that you tend to get in budget accommodations.
In summary (and this comment is not restricted to this place), having taken my most recent trip to SE Asia, I was a bit surprised by what you get for your money in Bolivia. At $40/night in Sucre, it seems you are still in "budget" territory. Again, a perfectly nice place, but more of a bargain in the cheaper rooms.
