The Space

On offer a guest bedroom with a double bed that accommodates up to two persons in the apartment in which I live. Guest(s) will have a bathroom with a glass door walk-in shower for exclusive use (you don’t have to share it with anyone else). There is also another half bathroom which you may use.

The apartment has a water heater which means that you'll get hot water 24 hours a day in your bathroom and the kitchen. You'll appreciate it when the temperature drops at night in winter and unheated water is ice cold. It also means you'll get good water pressure in the shower as opposed to showers that don't have water heaters.

The apartment is in a third floor (there is an elevator).

Clean sheets, bedding and towels are provided and changed every week (if you stay for more than a week) and your room will be cleaned and bed made Monday through Friday if you wish.

There is free wireless internet in the apartment and cable TV in your room. The bedroom has a heater in case the temperature drops and you feel the need to use it, although the apartment gets lots of sun and is generally warm.

To wash and iron your laundry you can use the washing machine as well as the iron and ironing board or pay the cleaning lady to have it done for you.

The kitchen is fully equipped, you can make use of it any time you want, space will be provided in the fridge as well as shelf space in the kitchen for your supplies.

For breakfast you’re welcome to any cereals, bread, yogurt or fruit that may be available when you get here, as well as to coffee, tea or milk upon arrival and any other time.

The living-dining room is a quiet, comfortable hang out.

As your host I’ll be happy to assist and help accommodate any needs/requests as well as point you in the right direction for tourism, shopping and entertainment.

Check-in/check-out time is flexible. Please tell me before booking though if you are arriving early in the day or late at night; likewise regarding the time that you may be leaving.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is located in the south side of the city, Calacoto to be exact, one of the best residential neighborhoods of La Paz, so it is very quiet and safe.

Calacoto is about three to four hundred meters less in altitude than the center of town which is 3,600 meters above sea level, which means it is two to three degrees centigrade warmer and there is more oxygen! (La Paz is between 3100 and 3900 meters above sea level, depending on what part of the city you’re at; that translates to about 10,170 feet to 12,795 feet, or between 1.93 and 2.42 miles. Denver is left far behind! (Or should I say below?).

The apartment is ten blocks from San Miguel, a prime commercial and shopping center and the trendiest neighborhood of La Paz, where you’ll find a number of cafes and excellent restaurants of all kinds, featuring local as well as international fare.

One of the 20 best restaurants in Latin America, Gustu, is just a block away. It offers one of the finest combinations of fusion/local food anywhere.

Six blocks away you will find the Green Line cable car (teleférico) station. The best views of the city can be had from it, really special. Plus it´s safe and cheap.

Five blocks in the opposite direction from the apartment you can find a couple of the most popular bars and pubs in town. There is also a mall with a multiplex and more restaurants and pubs, as well as commercial outlets of all kinds, bank branches and ATMs, about twelve to fourteen blocks away.

There is a small supermarket nearby and a much larger one within walking distance (five to ten minutes) and there are a couple of tiny grocery stores around the corner.

There is a very nice pub/restaurant that goes by the name Risky Business that also serves breakfast some fifty meters from the apartment. Three blocks away is the five stars Camino Real Hotel with the La Tranquera restaurant that offers fine Bolivian and international food. Also three blocks away Cafe Arco Iris is a good alternative to Risky Business, it serves sandwiches, salads, pastries and more beginning at 8am. There is a drugstore diagonal to the Camino Real Hotel.

Getting Around

From the apartment there are all kinds of public transportation from Avenida Ballivian. It is the South Side´s (Zon Sur) main thoroughfare which is just three blocks away, which means you can get to the center of town in 20 to 40 minutes depending on traffic. There is also a taxi stand around the corner from the apartment.

If you want to take the cable car to the city the Green Line station is only six blocks away. You will get the best views of La Paz from it, really spectacular!

Parking space for one car is provided in the building.

The airport is 15 kilometers away (about 9 miles). The most convenient way to get to the airport from here is by taxi.
