What can I tell you? This is not the French Riviera...
We spent a couple of nights here on a rockhounding trip. We ended up in a smoking room (I think) because we had a large dog with us. The smell of cigarettes was like a punch ion the face when I opened the door. Our luggage smelled for a year afterward.
Anyway, the price was right, the people nice enough, a fair number of conveniences nearby (Gas, grocery, restaurants, etc.)
If you have to stay in Potosi, it will have to do.

One word for this hotel: dirty.

Since I spend as much time in hotels as I do my own bed I can tolerate a lot. However this hotel had all the things that I can't handle. I only stayed one night and there was nothing else available so I put up with the room for the night. I wouldn't suggest you do the same....

*Dirty hotel room floor: hair, and various other things all over the floors meant I never took off my shoes.
*Dirty sheets and bed spreads: hair all over, stains on the bed spread. Clearly they don't wash the bed spread and blankets very often.
*Furniture was stained
*Had a room facing the main street which was very noisy

If I ever travel through Potosi again I won't stay here again!

Room Tip: My tip: don't stay here and if you have to call ahead and ask for clean sheets/blankets. Also as...
