Stayed here as part of Intrepid tour. Hotel is on the edge but Uyuni is fairly small so just a 10 min walk to most of the restaurants and bars Room was comfortable and clean, the first night we had hot water, the second time warm water. There is a portable heater in each room which is needed in winter!... More

The hotel is ok, comfortable beds, questionably painted walls... But it had a free breakfast and wifi in the lobby. But it's SO far from anything, at least a 20 minute walk for someone on a fast pace and given it was bloomin' freezing when we were there it just wasnt pleasant. I wouldn't stay here again, I'd pick somewhere... More

This is an honest and decent place, not more, not less. It is somewhat on the periphery of the town, in a neighborhood where there is nothing at all. The Samay Wasi is modern but basic. Okay for one or two nights.

Stayed as part of a G Adventures trip. Our first one nighter was fine with good breakfast, basic but clean room and a good shower. The return visit, two nights after a 4WD trip in to the flats was not as good with smaller room and a shower that did not work. Breakfast was ok and the people nice enough.... More

Part of G adventure tour, this hotel is very basic, it do have wifi which is good consider we are in middle of nowhere. The resturants and shops are bit far so you would need a taxi which hotel can offer. walk is abt 20mins. Shower - hot water go off for few mins. Breakfast is not much variety and... More

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
