Bolivia Hotel Review: Las Palmas Hotel, Santa Cruz, Bolivia
If you’re not into staying at really big hotels and prefer a smaller, quieter environment, this could be a good choice. While most hotels are located on the northern side of the city near nightlife hot-spots or in the heart of the busy downtown area, the Las Palmas Hotel is located just South of downtown. And although it will seem like you shut the bustling city out when you enter, it is still just 10 minutes by taxi from the city’s business center, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and more, and within walking distance of two of the best movie theaters, many museums, and the Tahuichi soccer stadium.
This tropical-style hotel with lush gardens and soothing waterfalls has several meeting rooms, indoor and patio restaurant and bar, a business center, pool and terraces and offers free airport-hotel shuttle service. It has 38 rooms (singles, doubles, and suites), all equipped with mini-bars, cable TV, and internet connections.
It's near the El Trompillo airport, which is a very small airport that has just a few flights per day. It's also located on the southern section of the 2nd ring, one of the city's busiest avenues, but you don't hear the traffic almost at all. It is very peaceful inside and the rooms are very nice. The staff was friendly, and the prices are moderate.
