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 This outdated hotel is not worth even half of what they charge nightly.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.

I felt this hotel was badly underrated so thought I'd give it a review based on our experience there. We stayed for 1 night. The room we had was massive with 2 double beds. Loads of radiators so heat was not an issue and hot water present in the shower. There was no breakfast included but we didn't miss it,... More

Stayed here twice, before and after a three day Salt Flats tour; had the same room each time. Winter was just two weeks away, but heat was non-existant. Shower panels were broken, causing bathroom to flood and never dry out. On first stay, no soap provided. Only one small towel during both nights. On the positive side, the bed was... More

I stayed here one night after the three day tour of Uyuni. The service is okay, there is internet in the lobby, and the room was big. I was looking forward to a nice hot shower, but the shower pressure in my room was weak, so it was not very enjoyable. I really don't know the quality of other hotels... More
