We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. The room, the restaurant and the backyard were spacious and clean. It took about 10 minutes walking to get to the town centre. The staff were nice and were willing to help but none of them could speak in English. Therefore, we found difficulty in communication. Hot water for shower was provided... More

We stayed here only one night. Paid what we pay for a 3 star in La Paz (540 BSB for a 2.5 room). Nice, clean rooms and spacious. But that is about it. No wifi in the rooms, warnings all around (1000 fine for this, 1000 fine for that - what a nice atmosphere.....) hot water didnt function and worst... More

We only stayed here one night, but found the rooms to be spacious and clean. The hotel has a very local and authentic feel. The front desk was helpful, and were happy to arrange a taxi or us to the airport and provide directions into town. I would recommend.

PRO: Not very cheap - but fair price for Uyuni (where everything is more expensive than elsewhere in Bolivia). Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely, large rooms. Good beds. Comfortable armchairs. Space for your suitcase; no wardrope though. Quite good breakfast. Very good bathroom with space for your stuff. Fast and good laundry (not cheap). Very, very quiet at night. CON:... More

Good hotel, but spoiled by the hardness of the bed!! My wife and I had sore hips for days. Informed staff when checking out, but no interest was shown. Good location and breakfast was OK. Hard to get wet in the shower!

Great surprise after a day riding dirt roads from Chile and just before visiting Salar de Uyuni. Staff was very friendly but there was no attention in English at that time. Wi-fi signal was best at the lobby - not so good in the room. Great breakfast!

we stayed one night in a double room with private bathroom + cozy and well furnished room, very clean + free wifi + good breakfast + well situated in a quiet area (5' walk to the center where all agencies are situated) what could be improved in our view: - make sure that the hot water works at all times...

This is a small property but the rooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable. There is a radiator in the room. I was very concerned for the cold but I did not use it in May. Wi-fi is only in the lobby and there is no computer for customers’ use. Staff speaks very little English or none. Breakfast is good... More

A transit hotel, here to go to Salt Flat and for no other reason. Get in late and leave early which is fine. Hotel basic services. Frustrated that our print out confirmation of a matrimonial bed was met with indifference. Given a double but she was without care that the room was not what we were confirmed to have. Set... More

We arrived on the evening train, the heater was already on in the room and we could keep it on all night. The beds had fleecy sheets & plenty of layers to help keep warm. Shower was hot, best shower I've had in Bolivia. Breakfast room had a small gas heater which struggled to heat the room, but better than... More
