This hotel lies outside of the colonial centre, but it is an easy uphill walk to the main plaza. The rooms are off a central courtyard, and ours was 002 on the ground floor. It only had windows onto the courtyard, and the double bedroom had no windows and was very stuffy. The room even had a lounge area with... More

Our room was a flat, two bedrooms, good space. At 2nd store we did not have a window as such (looks like at 3rd store they have). The patio are was great for our son to run around. Breakfast was basic, missing the good boliviano pan, but ok. That said, what really made the difference for us was the friendly... More

I was very disappointed in this hotel as its level of cleanliness was not good and the rooms poorly equipped. The only good thing to say is that the bed was comfortable. The hotel could be attractive if the owners spent some money bringing it up to an acceptable standard.

We stayed in one of the mini apartments . The rooms are tired and a bit shabby. The rooms are a bit cell like with small high windows It is a fifteen minute walk uphill to the centre of Potosi. The breakfast was adequate but not amazing

the hotel was not clean at all, dusty the rooms and the blankets were spotted that you don't want to imagine what happened. although it was presented as the best accomodation in Potosì, it was an unexpected bad surprise. breakfast was minimal, brought by the waiter some juice and coffee.

We found this a nice hotel near the centre. The staff helpfull and fit carrying our luggage to the room. Because of the height that was too much for us. The room it self was not big but we had two bedrooms and a small living. We used one room to store our stuff and the other to sleep in.... More

Best thing about this place is that is is warm, centrally heated, and has good hot water. Rooms are a little bit cell-like with no external windows, but they are spacious enough. Perhaps a little tired in decor. The hotel is a 5 minute taxi ride from the centre.

What I enjoyed about this hotel was the overall design. Quite stylish and modern hotel with some historical aspects. The room was of medium size. Cable-tv, wi-fi, ref and good size bathroom. Comfortable bed and rest. The restuarant was pretty basic. The food was ok. Breakfast was a la carte with eggs, juice, coffee and bread. The service was friendly.... More

We only stayed in Potosi for one night and the Cima Argentum was fine for our purposes (as a base for our visit to the silver mine). In its hay-day, it must have been a lovely hotel, but sadly that day has passed and it is now tired. Staff very friendly, room clean (althugh bathroom needs updating/worn out), restaurant OK...

This hotel is like most of the city: a lot of potential, but a lack of basic maintenance. Cleaning is basic: Curtains are dusty, bathroom not fully cleaned, walls are far to be clean. After this first looks on your room, your are not sure the sheets are clean... You just have to guess they are! We stayed there for... More
