This hotel is about a 15-20 minute walk to downtown. It's near the train station so it can get loud (at least it seemed like a train station that had its loud speaker on). Our room was a decent size and there was plenty of bedding to keep you warm. The shower was lukewarm at best and our room had... More

Comfortable hotel, spacious rooms with heating and hot showers. The bathroom flooded every single time we showered which was so annoying. The breakfast was average. We only stayed at the hotel for one night on the way to the salt flats so we didn't really go anywhere within Uyuni apart from a pizza shop about a 10 minute walk away.... More

This is a fantastic hotel for it's type it was particularly appreciated after three days in the salt flats. It is clean, comfortable and has hot water! The included breakfast had a lot of choice I especially liked the toasted sandwich maker and juice. The staff were very helpful. Uyuni is not the most exciting of places with most of... More

We stayed here for 1 night as a part of a G adventures tour. The bedroom was clean and OK but the shower wasn't great and paint was peeling off the ceiling. The room was cold, but plenty of blankets provided. The worst aspect though is the location. It's a 15 minute walk to the main square and restaurants which... More

The front desk needs to be a little more trained and prepared to deal with North American clientele. Otherwise I cannot fault the hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful and filling. I would classify Samay Wasi as an Adventure style solid three star property and have no problem recommending it to... More

A stay in this hotel is better than a luxury hotel if one is touring the Salar economically. It prepares one mentally to focus on the adventure ahead. It has fair sized rooms but the shower is not hot or flowing. This is discomforting in winter. The rooms are however secure, the elevator works well and the breakfast is fresh... More

This hotel is fairly basic, the rooms are comfortable but can get very cold during the night so make sure you wrap up warm. The bathrooms are ok but hot showers are hit and miss here. There is complimentary wifi but it wasn't working vey well when we were there. The breakfast was nice and filling. The hotel is at... More

Stayed here for 1 night as part of a G adventures tour. It's a nice hotel. Our room was a good size, very clean and quite new. Bathroom was nice too. Bed was comfortable but the pillow was very hard! Staff were fairly friendly. Breakfast was included and was ok- nothing special but handy all the same. Wifi works in... More

a 10 minute walk from the 'centre' of town. The rooms are small but functional. There's wifi in the public areas (but it is slow, as is to be expected from a hotel in a remote area). The breakfast is decent (but nothing to write home about). The staff was helpful. Overall recommended for a stay as you will not... More

I stayed one night at this hotel in November 2014. My room was clean and comfortable. Wifi worked most of the time. There was always hot water for a warm shower. There is no elevator, so you have to haul your own luggage up the stairs to your room. It seems this hotel is a family business. The house was... More
