I stayed at this hotel 2 separated nights. First night, another guest came to complaint that his hot shower is not working. My room, the floor drain was clogged, the heater was not on. The handy man came to fix the heater, but cannot fix the floor drain. I had to shower like that. The second night , I check... More

I loved this darling hotel! Wonderfully decorated, large comfortable rooms, good service. A perfect base for visiting the salt flats, and they have heaters!! We had a wonderful stay here and would return.

This place is great. Fantastic place to relax after the drive from San Pedro. They made breakfast early for us so that we could eat before our early departure to La Paz. Clean, plenty of hot water. Wifi a little slow. Would stay here again.

I booked the day before by phone from Potosi quite easily. Due to some loose planning on my part, I ended up staying at Los Girasoles for 2 nights before my 3-day tour of the magnificent Lagunas and another 2 nights before flying back to La Paz. The husband and wife operators ( with their beautiful baby) were all class,... More

Unsure if the bed was actually comfortable or I was just exhausted from 15hours in transit from La Paz and it was comfortable in comparison to the bus & train seats. Bathroom was not clean, taps didn't work, television didn't work, wifi didn't reach the room I was staying in. The hotel has potential but I don't think the owners... More

Outside looks terrible, but inside is relativity clean, of course, Uyuni is the only way in to the Salar, and to be there it worths the sacrifice. You have to be adventurous and definitively you won't be disappointed because this enormous, wonderful and never ending place is amazing. We went in their winter !! so cold and windy, that you...

This is a basic, clean hotel that is much better inside than it looks from the outside. More so if you have arrived in the dead of a cold night, exhausted by two days travel. It has a heating system of sorts although it is not particularly effective. To the management's credit they did supply a fan heater upon request.... More

As my title suggests, this place is great for Uyuni but don't expect a great sleep. The arrangement of the rooms means that the slightest noise carries. Saying that, I think some guests were just plain inconsiderate when closing their doors, almost to the point of deliberately repeatedly slamming them to make sure they were locked. All that's needed is... More

Very good: Our room was clean. It had wi-fi. Hot shower (absolutely wonderful after our Uyuni adventure tour!). This is a nice looking hotel, with a pretty good sized lobby and a light-filled courtyard area. Not-so-good: The electrical outlets and connections threw out sparks. Breakfast is included, but it is not anything special - instant coffee instead of fresh, for... More
