    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.

  • 4.0.Fair

    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.

    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.

    Pleasant stay in a tiny town.

    Decent hotel in walking distance to the sights. There was WiFi and warm water for the shower. Hotel has no heat and it gets cold there but they have heavy blankets and offer you more. Just bring warm clothes anyway.

    Restaurant closed for dinner and very hard to get food in the town. Exposed wires in room and bathroom. Internet not good in room. However,if you want to stay in Tiwanaku, there are not very many choices. It was ok.

    No hubo nadie al hotel

    We showed up at 4pm and the hotel was completely closed. After ten minutes of knocking and calling, a painter came down and gave me a phone number to call. It was disconnected. We left. We are not being charged for this, right?
