Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Aranjuez
Av. Buenos Aires E-0563, Cochabamba, Cochabamba, Bolivia
There is really only one place to stay in Cochabamba, and Hotel Aranjuez is it. The beautiful building was built in the 30s but has been nurtured and improved over the years, with particular attention to the now Edenic garden, first planted by the family when they took over 25 years ago. Every space is welcoming and impeccably kept, with interesting art and antique furniture and finishings scattered here and there. The restaurant (particularly the breakfast) has been carefully designed to be healthy and nutritious, using the best of fresh, local produce. Coffee lovers will appreciate the owner's stash of what may be Bolivia's best coffee. Rooms are a little old-school, but spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed.
