Testimonials

This is not a five star by any means but is a nice and comfortable place to stay if you find yourself having the good fortune of visiting the charming city of Tarija in Bolivia. The breakfast buffet had a nice simple selection of items and even a do it yourself bar for making pancakes and eggs. The bed room while small had a nice double bed and a little television with some English shows. The bathroom was very clean.

Spaarpook - Simple Room

Came upon the hotel by accident. We actually meant to stay across the street based on Lonely Planet… but very glad the other one was full. Hostal Carmen has super friendly staff that wouldn’t be out of place at a high-end hotel. I woke up a bit late for breakfast, but they were ever so accommodating. When we asked for directions to wineries, they gave us detailed descriptions of where to go…and where not to go, and how to get there. We stayed in hotels across multiple price ranges in Bolivia (from inexpensive to pricey). By far the best value was the Carmen.

caballeroviajero - Double Room

“El servicio fue excelente. Nos resolvieron todas nuestras dudas. Habitación confortable y limpia, con calefacción. Sin lujos innecesarios que el viajero no usa pero terminan encareciendo la estadía. Tuvimos habitación con baño perfecto, camas confortables, vista a la calle Ingavi, habitación muy tranquila. (…) La ubicación es tranquila, a pesar de que está a escasos 400 del centro de la ciudad. No puedo hacer comentarios negativos sobre algo que no me haya gustado. Recomiendo el Hostal totalmente.”

Rainer1940 - Habitación Triple

“Debido a un viaje de trabajo me alojé en este Hostal, mi habitación muy limpia, el baño impecable, pero sobre todo la atención de la dueña, muy amable y muy proecupada por sus huéspedes. El desayuno ni que decir, tenía absolutamente de todo, desde todo tipo de panes, cereales, queques, huevo, jugos, yogurt, etc. Muy recomendable e ideal para descansar por la noche ya que no existen ruidos.”
