The La Paz hotel scene has moved more upscale recently thanks to years of strong economic growth throughout the country. Trendy, modern hotels that would have been unimaginable just a decade ago have sprung up across the city, providing some great alternatives for the affluent traveler who is tired of the same old international chains. Let’s take a closer look at some of the city’s most interesting new digs.
Stannum Hotel Boutique and Spa
Stannum brings New York chic to La Paz’s centrally located, bohemian Sopocachi district. This popular hotel features avant-garde décor with plenty of eclectic artworks, a first-rate restaurant and a fun, funky cocktail bar. Situated on the twelfth floor above a modern shopping and cinema complex, each room offers unbeatable city views. Ask for a room with a mountain view to wake up overlooking the spectacular Mount Illimani.
Located right in the middle of the bustling tourist district, Rosario has long been a hit with international visitors for its charming colonial architecture and exquisite Andean-inspired décor. This elegant four-star hotel features a popular and charming restaurant which serves traditional dishes such as llama steak and quinoa salad.
Casa Grande Hotel
Casa Grande Hotel is modern, stylish and utterly prestigious. Quickly gaining a reputation as La Paz’s go-to hotel for the sophisticated traveler, its main attraction is a massive glass ceiling atrium spanning the entire center of the building. With a picturesque swimming pool, excellent business facilities and an elegant fine dining restaurant, this is a superb five-star option for those looking to stay in the upmarket Zona Sur. Nearby, Casa Grande Suites offers similar luxury with apartment-style rooms.
Camino Real is one of Zona Sur’s most famous and longstanding luxury hotels. Aside from having all the facilities you would expect from a five-star hotel, it offers an innovative altitude sickness prevention program. This includes free 24-hour medical advice, oxygen therapy, a restaurant with easily digestible menu items and personal trainers in the hotel gym. They also have an apartment hotel in the more central Sopocachi district, with both locales cooking up some of the city’s best barbecued meat in their in-house restaurants.
This newcomer to the La Paz luxury hotel scene has been turning heads since its inception in 2016. Located in the heart of the city’s upscale Zona Sur (South Area), Atix aims to take a modern approach to Bolivian hospitality while still paying homage to Bolivia’s proud cultural heritage. Atix is a member of the Design Hotels™ group, a selection of luxurious design-driven boutique hotels dotted around the world. Its highlights include a stylish indoor swimming pool, quirky architectural design and an experimental fusion restaurant run by some of the continent’s most prestigious chefs.
