We stayed one night and even if we were not expecting much comfort from such a remote place, well this hotel is even lower then our low expectations . The hotel (or BB) is in the center of pueblo and nothing much around. Restaurant was closed so we skipped dinner / breakfast starts at 730 even if tours have to... More

First of all, the room was clean and nice and we did get hot water, contrary to other reviews. Thats where it stopped. The heater for the size of the room was grossly in-adequite and we would have been better off with a hair dryer, plus im quite sure they turned the gas off in the middle of the night... More

Hotel Magia de Uyuni is really a magic hotel: things there disappear very easily... At the reception a group of four organized robbers entered the hotel through the front door left open and stole my new expensive camera while I was registering at the counter. The scene was recorded by two videocameras, one inside, one outside. In the video I... More

We stayed at La Magia for 2 nights, before and after our salt flats tour. Our booking was for $20/night however upon check-in, the clerk said not the price is actually $70. I even pulled out the printed copy of our booking. And the clerk insisted that that was incorrect. I had to email the booking agency to clarify the... More

The hotel is very comfortable. Good breakfast although was served late. The hotel is a bit overpriced but so is everything in Uyuni. Good Wifi. The staff was friendly and our two rooms were very large and spotless.

This was the better of the two places in which we stayed in Uyuni. We had a large room, it was clean and quiet, but nothing special. The location was good, although Uyuni is a small town and everything in the town is fairly close. All in all, a forgettable stay, although for one night it was satisfactory.

Ridiculously overpriced is right. This outdated hotel is not worth even half of what they charge nightly. The rooms are old, the bathrooms moldy, and the service unfriendly. Save your money and choose anywhere but here.

Positives: Was close to main square, ATM, bus terminal and laundry (as are most places - Uyuni is TINY), Kept our luggage while we were on a 3day/2night salt flats trip, Good pizza in on-site restaurant, Main female owner was quite helpful. Negatives: Arrived to find no one on the front desk at 9am (there never seemed to be anyone... More

Well I think we had one of the better rooms in the 'new block' which didn't look particularly new actually. Some of the other rooms on the ground floor, supposedly the original, looked very pokey. Our room was one of extremes - very elaborate in some ways but shabby in others. For example an elaborate white porcelain toilet with an... More

Nice and charming hostel with big rooms, a lot of picturesque elements. The shower was really hot (likely depending number of concurrent people showering). There was enough heating available. And nice enough bar available. Service was fine.
