“Great, I loved”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

I loved, the very friendly management, good cleaning, hot water, has wifi, has improved from the last time I went, the price affordable, giving you very good advice, in my opinion should go, this hotel has been a long time, it's like a legend of Uyuni (1920) I think I've also heard when I left his own tour of this hotel do routes to salar

I arrived in Uyuni with no hotel reservation and went to Hotel Avenida with travellers I met on my way to Uyuni. We paid 35 bolivianos each/night for a room with 2 bed and shared bathroom, with hot water. Considering the location and other options available, I can't complaint about our choice. No TV, or wi-fi connection, but if you're heading or coming from the salt flats, you won't need to worry about it, right?

If you ever wanted to know how staying in a prison cell must feel like, this is your chance. At the Avenida you'll get a freezing cold, dark room with walls that are plastered with cardboard and sexy calendars to cover all the fungi. Your private bathroom has a constant and very strong smell of someone elses urin - probably inspired by the scent of Bolivian public bathrooms. To top everything off there's also a shower that might just give you a nice little electric shock. But then at least you'll feel warm, right?

Room Tip: There are no good rooms.

Should be called a hostel def not a Hotel.

Good for one night and you get what you paid for.

-hot showers
-clean
-good location next to the railwaystation and restaurants

Unfortunately no heating in the rooms (it was very cold!!), no wifi, no kitchen, you have to buy your own toilet paper and I think it is allowed to smoke in the rooms...

Its a completely no frill cheap value for money place with comfy bed, clean rooms and hot showers. There are plenty of blankets to keep you warm as there are no heaters, no wifi no nothing really. I did find power sockets in my room and toilet paper was complimentary.The location is great and the owner was friendly enough.

Most people only stay one night here - before and maybe after you have been at the salt flats.
The rooms stink of smoke, but the owner smokes so you get that.
This is a family affair.
Mum and grandma, and the big man - son all work here.
He speaks english which is good.
you have to buy your own toilet paper.
There is no kitchen.
Showers are locked at times - so plan ahead.
I would pick elsewhere next time, but it served it's purpose.
i saw the ladies was all the linen by hand in the troughs.
Basic Bolivian.
No wi-fi or internet access.
Should be called a hostel - this is no hotel.
Showers do have hot water - this is about the best thing!

Room Tip: Rooms are cold. No tips. Maybe the back is quieter?

So cheap. At £7 for a double room with shared bathroom I can't complain. We would stay here again, but Uyuni is not somewhere you want to hang about. Super basic room, no heater but enough blankets to suffocate you. Shared showers were hot and powerful - a bonus in Uyuni. No WIFI and not even a power socket. I wouldn't have wanted anything else though. In Uyuni to get a nice hotel you'll pay over the odds and it won't even be worth it. The layout did kind of make it look like a prison but hey, it's cheap. It's hard to give a star rating so I'll do it based on value for money. I think if you go knowing what to expect you'll be fine. Another couple we met walked in and walked straight back out.
