We decided to treat ourselves a bit by staying here after a 3 day tour of the salt flats.
The hotel is beautiful, most things made out of salt but you don´t feel like you´re getting covered in the stuff just being there :) We arrived at about 7.30pm after a very cold tour in freak weather of snow(!) and were exhausted so it was a relief to be shown to a room which had a heater and a bed which had an electric blanket! The shower was piping hot which is, as always in south america, a wonderful luxury.
Breakfast was served whenever we wanted it to be (arranged the night before) and it was great. Quite a treat again - cereals, fruits, yogurts, 3 types of bread for toast, the choice of eggs or omlettes if wanted .... perfect. The staff were attentive and helpful. Wifi is available and works best near reception.
The only downside to the hotel is it´s location in relation to Uyuni - it is a good 40 minute drive away right at the beginning of the salar. As such, if travelling by taxis (as we were) it is expensive to get to! From 100-200bolivianos.
Overall though, this was a real treat to have in the middle of the craziness of Bolivia!
