Hotel Gran Concepcion
Mid-range colonial style hotel on the main square opposite Concepción's restored mission church.
Concepción is the principal town on Bolivia’s Jesuit missions circuit. Like the other towns in the region, it has a grid of quiet adobe colonial streets around a vast grassy central plaza dotted with fruit trees accommodating entertaining toucans and parakeets. This charming colonial style hotel is the best in town.
It sits on the main square opposite the restored church, with two patios, one featuring a small pool. There are lots of plants and flowers in the interior and carved wooden columns reflecting the design of the mission churches. The walls in reception feature photos of the Spanish Royal Family who have visited. Rooms are very comfortable, simply furnished but with have excellent shower, a/c and a cable TV with a few English-subtitled channels.
An American breakfast is served in the patio: the restaurant here is particularly attractive, with pristine white tablecloths on tables enveloped in luxuriant foliage.
What our clients say
The landscape in Bolivia was more stunning than expected. Uyuni was the highlight.MO, Liverpool
Highlight: “Seeing the physical geography of Bolivia and visits especially the silver mine and the mint.”KS
Bolivia is very spectacular in terms of scenery but both food and hotels leave something to be desired. Not a problem for us but some might find it below expectations.MW
Highlight: Oh PLEASE !?? How can we do that. I think the early Hito Cajon border of Bolivia to Sucre had to be the highlights - the Salar, etc. the views all the way, our guide must have got tired of us oohing and aaahing !RH, Carshalton
The flight with Amazonas felt v safe. The plane is brand new CRJ200 Bombardier, the staff is helpful and v efficient and the pilots seemed v highly skilled and trained. So of all companies that provides short haul national flight in Bolivia I would highly recommend using Amazonas.JO, Borough
Bolivia - just stunning.PG, Northwood
