I stayed here on a business trip and it was such a pleasant surprise! The women at the hotel greeted us warmly and made every effort to keep us comforable. Don't expect everyone to speak English but one woman does and she's lovely. The price was less than 30 dollars a night and they asked for US dollars if you've got them.
You are a short walk from city center and very close to smaller mini markets/bodegas for necessities if you forgot something.
The pool is totally unusable and decor is nothing to speak of. At night you can sit in the lobby of the couches and dawdle but that's about it. The rooms have powerful a/c units which were a godsend on the hot night. The staff will spray your rooms with bug spray to kill the mosquitoes and it's very very strong. So have them do it when you're away for a few hours so smell can go away. In malaria country though, it's a really good idea to keep that.
The bath was small but had clean towels and toilet paper (which is sometimes rare in Bolivia). The shower was small but plenty of hot water (another rarity in Bolivia). They provide soap but nothing else so come prepared.
The breakfast in the mornings made me so stuffed that I could barely walk! 5 courses! They brought first fresh hot rolls with meat inside, then toasts and jam, then slices of banana + pinapple, then scrambled eggs, then hot sandwiches with ham and cheese. Plus, they brought us fresh juice and hot coffee. It was so good!
I think you'll be happy with this hotel. You will find a friendly face, a welcoming clean bed and a spacious room in this tropical town.
