La Paz is so much more than its best-known accolade of the world’s highest administrative capital city (at 3650 metres breathing can become a challenge!) The city is enclosed by the Altiplano mountain range, providing breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks in all directions. Whilst concrete towers have sneaked into the skyline in places, historical cathedrals, museums and colonial buildings still dominate, preserving the City’s sense of culture. La Paz is also the gateway to many other attractions, tours and adventures, including the Salar de Uyuni (Salt Flats), Potosi mines and the North Yungas Road, aka – The World’s Most Dangerous Road!

The Casa Prado Suites is a charming little boutique hotel located in the heart of downtown La Paz and within walking distance of all of the city’s main attractions and markets. The beautiful renaissance style building from Bolivia’s colonial period has been through many changes over the years, beginning life as a wealthy home before being transformed into an antique museum and now as a boutique hotel; all of these past lives contribute to a sense of character and history that can are rarely found in the larger branded hotel chains.

As soon you arrive and walk up the stairs to reception you enter a unique and friendly atmosphere, with a warm greeting and special touches from the buildings colourful history, like the antique typewriter and ancient parchment map on the wall behind.

The hotel serves breakfast in the stylish Café Urbano on the ground floor.  If your room includes breakfast, you’ll have a great selection of well cooked foods, including bread, fruit, eggs, fresh juice and coffee. The service from the staff in the café easily equals that of the team in the hotel above; always warm, friendly and helpful, even on Christmas morning!
