4/10 Fair

This property advised as a 4 star hotel. The rooms are cold, no heat. Uncomfortable bed, no tv, old furniture, not even hangers for your clothes. Expedia overcharges for the room, saying that the hotel is fully booked. I think I was the only guest, haven't seen anyone else. In the future I will avoid using Expedia because they always overcharge for hotel rooms.

The staff was excellent and went out of their way to make sure everything was fine The property was located at the best location for visiting Puma Punku and Tiwanaku. Heating could be better.

2/10 Poor

37 degrees out and no heat. Our room was filthy. Garbage left in room from previous guest. No staff in hotel after 10pm, lights turned out in hallways,etc. very flimsy door, and people knew which rooms were occupied because other rooms had keys in keyhole. Felt unsafe. The heat was the biggest problem though. Froze to death

We have been the place 2 years ago. It was packed. This trip, it seems we had arrived in off season. The gigantic hotel only host a few international travelers, which is not a bad idea. The Hotel is just right next to the Tiwanaku site: walk out the door in 1 min, you are at the ticket booth. We were planing to take 2 days to enjoy the sites ( 2 museums and 2 sites), however, the expensive ticket seems valid for only the same day. We talked with the guard and mentioned we stayed at Hotel Akapana, it actually worked out. This is Hotel designed for hardcore Tiwanaku fever enthusiasts! Enjoy the breakfast which having the Sun Gate and Moon Gate in your sight. If Owner Rosario is at Hotel, she was in New Jersey 20 plus years, it will be easier to communicate in English. Kitchen can provide lunch and dinner, but we have to mention it before hand, they will need to prepare the materials fresh. If you go, don't forget to grab a local beer or wine from their inventory. $10 a bottle of wine...not bad! Don't forget to explore their big court yard, there is a friendly dog who is very happy to meet new friends. If you ran out of Bolivianos, Wilie in the hotel can help you. Veronica and Ms. in the kitchen, will try to make a pancake for you in the morning, if you mention it to them. If you like star gazing, it is fairly quiet during the night!

This hotel places you one block from the entrance to the archeological site of Tiwanaku. Willy, who is managing Hotel Akapana, is knowledgeable about the history and significance of the site, but further, is a really nice guy who does whatever he can to help you with your stay. Very nice meals are available at the hotel as well. I recommend.

It was close to Tiwanaku and the museum. It also looked nice on the outside. The roof leaked in the lobby. I took a shower and got shocked by electricity when I tried touching the water valves. I had to get out of the shower, dry myself off, put my rubber flip flops just to be able to turn the water off. It was the only shower I took, it is 220 volts here and it kind of hurt. I did tell the manager.

6/10 Good

Is a bit run down. Maintenance is clearly not a priority and the design was such that problem were to be expected. Water in the shower doesn't drain. Hotel is a bit noisy. Staff is OK, but a smile here and there would be nice. Internet OK. No secure parking, but it's on the corner of 2 quiet streets. The Tiwanuka ruins are about 200 m, walking from the hotel.
