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
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
This hotel does not serve dinner. There was however good availability of free hot drinks and cookies. The lack of a dining facility at the hotel was not a problem as there are a large number of restaurants nearby.AM, Glasgow
