Guests have the feeling that as they walk through their stone yards, terraces, bell towers, stables and balconies, they go back on time. During the restoration of this boutique hotel, typical regional elements of the Bolivian culture were used such as aguayos cloths, quinua grains, wood, pewter, etc. La Casona is proud to show the creativity and ability of local artisans combined with the modern amenities travelers have come to expect.

La Casona is unique, with rich historical ambiance as well as superb integration into the city of La Paz.

Today guests will enjoy a daily buffet breakfast, as well as Mediterranean and regional dishes for lunch and diner.

Historical Relevance
La Casona has endured the passage of time despite several opposed circumstances, a fact which is heartily celebrated by La Casona. In many senses this living testimony is an extraordinary example not only of colonial architecture and local history, but of the perdurable identity, essence and startling spirit of Chuquiago Marka (pre-colonial name of La Paz City). Boutique Hotel La Casona is proud to contribute to the establishment of the Historic-Touristic Center of the beloved city of La Paz.
