ESPAÑOL You'll find all types of hotels in Bolivia, from cheap discount to hostels to luxury hotels and resorts. Knowing which hotels in Bolivia are worth booking a reservation is another matter, as many have "self-appointed stars". Hotel chambers do their best but have trouble keeping their hotel lists updated. Usually "hoteles" are 3-5 star hotels by US and European standards. Anything under that, even if it has the word "hotel" in the name is most likely a hostel (hostal), a "residencial" (short or long term cheap rooms) or an "alojamiento" (mostly used by truckers and bus drivers). In Bolivia you'll also find many beautiful resorts and eco-resorts (called the same in Spanish), vacation rentals ("cabañas") and even campgrounds where you can pitch a tent ("campings").
