Well-established and popular colonial hotel, offering excellent value and no shortage of charm – one of our all-time favourite budget options.
The Hotel Rosario is a popular and well-established colonial hotel near La Paz's indigenous markets, sights and restaurants. It’s a clean, quiet, well-decorated guesthouse with a pleasant jumble of flowery courtyards, always buzzing and lively with guests.
The small and neat guestrooms are cheerily decorated with bright textiles and furnishings. There are two restaurants and a more informal café, and the top floor has been converted into an internet café which also serves snacks and Mexican dishes. There’s also a well-respected travel agency on the ground floor, which can arrange any off-the-cuff tour or day trip you’d like to make.
What our clients say
"Probably my favourite hotel from them all. The room decorations were fabulous, the bed comfortable, a good sized bath in bathroom. The breakfast was also much better than most places."FR, Perth

"V. nice hotel indeed - super location (near all the shopping). V much liked the colonial style. Good breakfast too!"ES, London
"We arrived late after a delayed transfer to La Paz, and so only rooms at the front of the hotel were available, which were rather noisy. However, on request we were able to move to quieter rooms at the back for our next two nights. Very good restaurant for breakfast and dinner."JS,Worcester
