Highly overpriced!!! I payed 49$ for a room with shared bathroom, situated in-between kitchen and stuff room, so it was constantly noisy. Plus, there is a restaurant attached to the hotel, so my bathroom was shared with all the visitors which means that I had to wait a bit to take the shower. I had better accommodation in Bolivia for much less money! I changed it after the first night. Plus is -included is breakfast and one meal (very good one). still in Bolivia 2 meals cannot coast 30$ or so!

So sorry you were not pleased! However, you booked in on a holiday and we always raise our prices (as do most hotels). You received the only room open for that day, one with shared bath as noted on your reservation, You reserved late,only two days before. We urge all foreign tourists to check and see if they are booking their stay on a national holiday and book farther in advance. (Samaipata is full of Bolivians on holidays seeking a long family getaway)We offer free stays for unhappy guests.


The hotel (not a hostel - too expensive for that, and no dorms) is located within a 10 minute walk of town. It's functional not exceptional. The breakfast is OK (you pay more to have more). The internet goes off at night when the router is put away and is not activated until around 0630. The gate is locked (preventing early walks) until the staff wake up. There are more hotels (cheaper too) in the town but they are not on the net hence not indicated on search engines.

1. It takes you 10 minutes to walk downhill 2 blocks to the main plaza? 2. The staff will leave the router plugged in for you until you are ready for us to turn it off. (It is located outside to give better coverage to our large property.) Did you bother to ask the administrator? 3. You paid for a room with an all you can eat breakfast.Why didn't you just ask for more? 4. Your room key comes with a key to the lock at the front gate so that you can come and go as you please.5. Yes we are a hotel.


Rooms are average but beautiful gardens out back provide a wonderful place to relax. The restaurant is fantastic and staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a great place to stay.

Thanks for the good review. To keep prices economical we strive for sleep comfort and general satisfaction. That is not average in Bolivia.


Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent food, great atmosphere... couldn't have asked for anything better! A big thanks to the Posada del Sol team!
