Before being colonized by the Europeans, Bolivia was the domain of the legendary Incan Empire. In 1809 Bolivia gained its independence although it wasn’t until 16 years of war came to an end that the republic was declared.
The country has an extremely varied geography with high mountains (the Cordillera des Andes), plains and plateaus (the Altiplano), virgin forests (the Amazon) and wooded forests in the Gran Chaco. This diversity can also be found in the multi-ethnic population of the country which includes Amerindians, mixed race Mestizos, Europeans, Asians and Africans and where 37 official languages are spoken!
The Altiplano, the region where Bolivia’s administrative capital, La Paz is located, is a high plain in the heart of the Cordillera des Andes. It’s the highest inhabited region in the world after the Tibetan plateau, and La Paz is the world’s highest capital city.
Located on the 12th floor of a building dedicated to entertainment and diversion, the Stannum Boutique Hotel is not only well situated in terms of its beautiful views of La Paz and the magnificent mountains surrounding it. In addition, it provides visitors with access to a wide range of activities. On the ground floor, there is an American style mall with 11 movie theatres, restaurants, cafes, a gym and game areas not to mention banks and other nearby services.
The Stannum is a 20 room boutique hotel where comfort, elegance and design reign supreme. From the lobby onward, guests feel as if they are in a comfortable bubble surrounded by contemporary colors and non invasive modern style furniture. The Stannum links the past and the future with an emphasis on history, as indicated by its name. Stannum is the Latin name for tin, a metal once extracted from neighboring mines. By naming it after this metal, the hotel pays tribute to its past and the people of La Paz who enable today’s visitors to become the wealth of tomorrow in this constantly evolving country.
The Stannum’s rooms are designed to please an international clientele accustomed to the highest standards. They are perfectly organized with unforgettable views of the El Plano Mountains.
A zen like serenity reigns supreme. Although located in a hyperactive quarter, the Stannum offers a venue dedicated to peace and relaxation. Precious fabrics and materials and the latest in technology impress even the most seasoned travellers.
The Stannum possesses a lounge bar restaurant, the Doce where food and drinks are served at any time of day or night. The cuisine is international, and the chef is available 24/7.
The Stannum represents a new type of hotel in La Paz in that it is resolutely modern, trendy and international, offering guests a contemporary and design version of Peruvian luxury, demonstrating to the world that Bolivia is becoming a major tourist destination.
The very design aspect of the hotel is the work of Jorge Avila of A2 Architects and Nholra Quinteros of C.NCQ Design, decorators who work a great deal in the United States, the Caribbean and Chile.
