Qhini Hotel Boutique - La Paz - Building
1
9.3 Excellent (294 reviews)
Overview Reviews

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We couldn’t wait to leave La Paz but needed to stay an extra week for medical reasons. And this place essentially saved us. We couldn’t have been happier. It was more like staying with a local family (who became our friends) than a hotel. I can not recommend this place more; if we were ever to come back, this is the only place we’d stay. Thank you guys! See you in Israel :)
Cons: Not a thing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely boutique hotel in a pleasant part of LaPaz. Very secure, with locked gates restricting access to non authorised people. Located very close to the Teleferico gondola station, which is a real plus. Staff are fantastic. Daniel and Joachim and their sister all speak English, so communication for us was easy. They could not have been more helpful. Their father collected us from the airport at 4am, with a ready smile. Friendly, lovely family. Huge room and very comfortable bed, and the room has a great view of La Paz, and the hotel garden. We even saw a hummingbird! Breakfast was included in the cost of the room, and it was excellent. We can highly recommend this hotel.
Cons: Noisy neighbours waking for their early morning flight, and clomping around the beautiful parquet floor in heavy shoes!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly people. Gave many great tourism ideas.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff were super helpful in suggesting stuff to do and how to get around and place was great, clean and nice view
Cons: Was a bit far from the main area of La Paz, but was only a short teleferico ride in
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We booked a transfer from the airport with the hotel. Oscar, who is the father of this family owned business, picked us up and showed us a few beautiful overlooks on the way to the hotel. Joaquin (one of the sons) was exceptionally helpful to give us useful advice where to go, which transportation to take, where to eat. As a soon to be mayor in tourism he also speaks very good English, something you do not find too often in Bolivia. The hotel is certainly not in the center of La Paz but it's easy access to public transportation (the teleférico) makes up for that and the reward is a good night's sleep. Breakfast was good. It had good fresh buns. I would add oatmeal or similar to the buffet.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Excellent room and hotel host. Speaks english and is very welcoming and accommodative. Welcoming beverage and a great breakfast included. Amazing value for money and felt like an oasis
Cons: The place isn't the easiest to find
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Daniel and his family are wonderful hosts! Lovely, quiet area, located within walking distance of Mi Teleferico, providing access to the most visited places in La Paz. Also very quiet, which is difficult to find in La Paz (stayed at a different property a week earlier and experienced 24/7 noise (dogs, taxis, buses, etc.)) Recommended!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent small hotel, with great staff. English speaking family which helped us immensely. They were so good at assisting us with bookings, airport transfers and recommendations. The breakfasts were very good, with fresh fruit and juice, cereals and an egg. A bonus is the closeness of the hotel to the Teleferico, the new cable car network which travels all over La Paz. Can highly recommend Qhini as a place to stay.
Cons: Noisy guests leaving for very early morning flights.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: In total we stayed there for 6 nights and enjoyed every day. The location is nice and in the morning you could hear the birds. Not very common for La Paz :) Daniel and Joaquim were always very helpful and the family is very nice at all. Every morning there were fresh fruits and freshly squeezed juices. We can higly recommend this place.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Lovely owners! The lady who owns the property made up a pot of tea for us when we arrived late at night. Large, clean, comfortable room. Lovely garden area. Adorable cats that live there also. Strong WiFi connection and nice, hot shower.
Cons: The laundry price is very expensive. We did have a lot of laundry for us both after Peru (about 9kg) but came to around £40 which is expensive even for London. I think this should be looked at and revised down. We have scored down for this reason. Breakfast was nice but would be good to have more fruits available and the room was cold.

We also spent most of the day in the SPA area in the steam sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool, so relaxing! The gym is spacious as well with many machines. We also had fantastic cakes in the afternoon (buffet for 15 Bs) and used our free drink-voucher at the bar for a nice cocktail. The cable car (green line) is a 3min walk from the hostel, so easy to reach as well.

7.0 Good
Pros: Being so close to the Downtown area
Cons: Being in the front room gave beautiful views of the surrounding area but it was noisy due to traffic and the fact it was October 4th and 5 th so lots of parties in the street. Definitely required ear plugs!!!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean room and extremely friendly staff. Linen and towels were exchanged daily! Breakfast was very rich, plenty of fresh fruit available every day. The room was very warm, even if the temperatures dropped during the night - no need to use the electric heater that was already in the room when we arrived. I would certainly return to this pace when traveling to La Paz.
Cons: Breakfast can be served from 6:30 am onward which made it a bit tight for our early departure, but staff made their best to have it ready even before 6:30 am (Many thanks!). Some rooms are a bit smelly from the on-site restaurant, especially in the evening.

Cons: Avoid room looking on the street as it is very noisy all day & night.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We loved this hotel. The best hidden gem was the restaurant on the 9th floor. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The rooms were a good size with very modern bathrooms. The breakfast starts at 6.30, giving you a chance to eat before the tours, it also offered eggs, something that not everywhere has for breakfast.
Cons: The hotel was 100% perfect for us. The only bad thing was the noisy pub next door. The music is very loud and hard to fall asleep too. Considering that most of the tours start really early.

Pros: We loved the design and the love for detail in the hotel. Also the contrast to the city itself. The bed was very comfy, the breakfast buffet huge and delicious and the area very safe. Close to the teleferico, which made getting around easy.
Cons: The staff unfortunately were not very helpful. There were 3-5 people at the reception at all time, with no traffic at all and they were incredibly slow. Felt like they were all trainees. Same with the staff at the pool/bar area. We were among the only 6 guests and noone bothered to ask us for our order. We left. What a shame, as the rooftop area is amazing. The pool is very nattow and shallow, but perfect for a quick dip. The location is in a safe but residential area, so not many tourists and not much to do/see.
10.0 Excellent

Pros: Very nice staff, very helpful! Perfect location. Breakfast with fruits, cornflakes, bread,...
Cons: Very cold in the night
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Friendly welcome, replied immediately to my question when i booked, it was possible to checkin early, the electric shower was warm, bed good, in the middle of the nice mercado lanza and quiet, and not to forget a wonderful breakfast with fruit, freshly made juice, milk and cereals, bread, cheese. So very nice. I also liked that the rooms are nicely decorated with bolivian details.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel staff is very welcoming and helpful. They can also help with getting laundry done, arranging for a taxi. The location of hotel is just about perfect - on the street where the souvenirs are sold, very close to the street where the tourist agencies are, with some restaurants nearby. You can easily walk to all places of interest in Quito. The local market also is very close, in fact some of it is just under the windows - mostly a few ladies selling flowers and fruit. The breakfast is very good. The shower works fine, but since it is electrical, you have to make sure that it turns on - a sort of a hissing sound indicates that it is working, if there is no sound, no amount of letting water will produce warmth, instead just switch it off and on again. There is blow-drier on demand, generally ask and you may be given. Getting a room where sun enters will make for warmer room.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Comfy bed, nice breakfast (eggs cooked to order, fresh fruit, bread, cheese, juice etc) and friendly staff - no iron in room but one of the ladies ironed a shirt for us (and immediately - even though we said we didn’t need it until the afternoon). Transfer to airport really good value at 70Bs. Not a lot of English spoken but basic Spanish is plenty to get by.
Cons: The location is on a reasonably quiet street but still noise from cars and dogs during the night. La Paz in general is very dark and we found the streets round the hotel a bit unpleasant at night even though there are plenty of tourist restaurants and hostels. The room was very cold, in particular the bathroom where the window had to be kept open for ventilation.

Cons: The facilities and bathroom in particolar where below average, with no soap or shampoo and the whole bathroom doubled as a shower, which at least was hot. No personal heater in the room but they let you keep a shared one for half an hour before going to bed.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was really good! I got I’ll during my stay (food poisoning), and the staff was so friendly and helpful, made me tea and everything!
Cons: The bathroom was a bit small, when showering I flooded most of the bathroom. Wifi didn’t work very well in the upper floor.
