Spent several nights in a top floor room that opened off the terrace. Enjoyed relaxing on the terrace. Room was comfortable; staff were helpful. We appreciated overall atmosphere with plants throughout and filtered water for guests. Location excellent - only a few minutes walk to the central plaza.

Let's say that we had great expectations based on the reviews that we have read before going there. The hotel is well maintained and must of the staff is friendly and helpful, but you have to remember this is a 3 star hotel, meaning basic services and cheap ammenities. Overall it was a good experience, and location cannot be better.

I had a reservation for two nights in October 2011. The quality of the hotel and the service of the staff exceed our best expectations and we stayed an additional night. The gorgeous breakfast included fresh fruit juices and home made cakes, just great! I would recommend it without any kind of reserves.

I was upgraded to a Jr. Suite which was spacious and comfortable. There are space heaters in the room but I didn't need to use it as my room was warm enough. Excellent breakfast including chocolate cake and pancakes. Jug filled with boiled water on the second floor in front of the restaurant so you can fill your water bottles....

El Hostal de Su Merced is a lovely little place. The 4-star hostal is built in a 18th century mansion and decorated with 19th century furniture which really sets the mood for your stay in this beautiful colonial city. The hotel opened up in 1997 and hosted the meeting of South American Presidents - the Bolivian President himself has stayed...

We spent 6 nights here in June of 2011. The weather was really cold outside, but the service and accommodations here warmed us right up. The front desk staff was friendly and always willing to help.
