Unless you want to stay in dorm style rooms in a local house sleeping with people you don't know this hotel is pretty much your only option in the area. One might expect that the hotel would use this advantage excessively but really, the place is decent. The food was good, the staff were friendly and the room was cozy,... More

It depends on which trip you go. This village mostly is visited by people who sleep in the Tayka Hotel. The cost is mid class to high but very well. The village itself; actually you can see 3 different era. The fortification Tojota abandoned, actual village and the new village built for attention of the 3rd rally Dakar in 2016... More

We stayed for 1-night at the Tayka de Piedra at the beginning of October this year, booked for us by our tour organiser. On arrival we were allocated room 1 near the reception. I think this must be the best room as it is a very big size and has a great view over the village below and towards the... More

Very pleasant hotel. View to the hills is great but the other way over looks a small town and is not very pleasant. Dinner was very good and there was an excellent breakfast. Although the weather was fairly cold outside the room was well heated considering how big it was. Thought this was a great place to overnight. Few ruins... More

After arriving from Hotel Tayka del Desierto, which provided a lovely experience, I had high hopes for this hotel, but I was soon brought back down to earth when I set foot in this place. The rules were surprisingly the same, rather strict ones, of the other hotel - fixed dinner time, limited hot water - with the difference that... More

Such a pity that this place is run so badly! The location is awesome, in the middle of the desert, and the construction style quite nice, all in rocks. But the staff has no interest in keeping it in good conditions. Dusting the rooms, cleaning the bathrooms (the sink had a gray layer of grease accumulated for months), instead of... More

When you are there you have to realize where u r. Close to the border to chile in the far south of the Uyuni desert. As all the other writers here, we stayed there for a night during round trip . The staff is highly motivated, to make u feel as comfortable as they can. From the beginning we got... More

This hotel is lost in the middle of the desert 100 miles away from a city. Knowing this, it is a very charming hotel with an authentic feeling and international standards. The rooms are spacious with a nice view on the valley (the hotel is located on a hill). Diner was nice made from local products as well as the... More

We havent expected there is a "hotel" in the desert. But when we got there, it really surprised us. Very nice hotel, all made in rocks, very special, and service is very good. Room is clean and with hot water for shower. Dinner is good also. In this kind of environment, run a hotel this chiqui is a miracle:)
