Hotel Gran Concepcion
Mid-range colonial style hotel on the main square opposite Concepción's restored mission church.
Concepción is the principal town on Bolivia’s Jesuit missions circuit. Like the other towns in the region, it has a grid of quiet adobe colonial streets around a vast grassy central plaza dotted with fruit trees accommodating entertaining toucans and parakeets. This charming colonial style hotel is the best in town.
It sits on the main square opposite the restored church, with two patios, one featuring a small pool. There are lots of plants and flowers in the interior and carved wooden columns reflecting the design of the mission churches. The walls in reception feature photos of the Spanish Royal Family who have visited. Rooms are very comfortable, simply furnished but with have excellent shower, a/c and a cable TV with a few English-subtitled channels.
An American breakfast is served in the patio: the restaurant here is particularly attractive, with pristine white tablecloths on tables enveloped in luxuriant foliage.
