My fiancée and I stayed in Hotel Independencia in Sucre for a few nights as part of a tour. The hotel and grounds are lovely, with open courtyards and comfortable areas to sit and enjoy a drink. The building is in Spanish colonial style and has a fascinating history if you ask at reception of check online on the very unpredictabke WiFi.

Hotel Independencia is a classic 3* hotel - basic, cheap, mostly clean and located well in the centre of Sucre. It needs lots of maintenance so don’t expect the Hilton, but perfectly ok on a budget. The bathrooms in particular need some fairly urgent work to hide exposed wires and repair pipework (see photos).

The breakfast is ok, although nothing special. There’s the usual and tasty range of bread, jams, eggs, meat, cheese and fresh juices. Sadly, to add to the experience there’s a particularly surly staff member taking room numbers and policing the breakfast area. This includes telling you off for wearing the wrong footwear (clean socks not ok) and shouting at the waiter whilst you eat.

All-in-all, stay somewhere with nicer showers and food if you can afford it, otherwise this hotel is ok!

Less than one block from the Plaza 25 de Mayo. Very convenient hotel for restaurants and anywhere you want to visit. We changed rooms 3 times. The first one was with a new leak in the bathroom and they offered us a better room (but the one we had was spacious, clean and enough for us). The second one was facing the inner beautiful garden of the hotel. We accepted changed to the 3rd one just for one night because they were going to receive a soccer team and they wanted to be all together. The 3rd room was also very nice and the stuff prompted to pack our stuff and move our luggage, but we prefered to do it by ourselves.
Old historical building. If you look into details, you will find that renovation is in order, but the charm of the place paid off.

This hotel clearly used to be an old palace or at least mansion as it has a ballroom and is tastefully decorated. It is unbelievably close to the city centre and has friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was excellent. Unfortunately it can be noisy as some youth groups use it when touring Bolivia and not all of them are quiet - to be fair: some are quiet.

The hotel has a Spanish colonial feel about it, which was quite a nice change after having been in La Paz beforehand.

It’s located centrally, which is convenient for getting to the square, where there are some nice cafes/restaurants.

Rooms were clean and comfortable and staff were friendly.

DO NOT STAY HERE! They steal your stuff! I just stayed here and had USD @210.00 and an expensive watch stolen from my room while I was out for a few hours. (Other people in my group also had large amounts of money and possessions stolen from their rooms.)
