Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel with my parents in mid January and we couldn't be happier. The rooms have an ideal size (including bathrooms) and were clean in every respect. There was always hot water and heating, which is not a matter of course in Uyuni. The breakfast buffet is sufficient (it has a little bit of everything - sweet and salty) and the freshly made omelets were delicious. We can only recommend this hotel and thank Ms. Melina and co for the ideal service. We wish you continued success! Best regards from Switzerland, S.C.

This hotel was wonderful. It’s new, very clean, has extremely hot water (this takes on new importance after 3 days without!) and the staff is friendly. It’s a few blocks further outside of the main food streets, but worth it given how comfortable it is! We never felt unsafe walking back at night.

We booked here for 1 night to recoup after a long stent in San Pedro de Atacama and the Altiplano. My only regret was not booking longer, this was such an amazing stay.

Location wise it's about a 5-10 minute walk from the main area of Uyuni. The area surrounding the hotel is very quiet. The lobby area was gorgeous, with beautiful couches made out of salt blocks and a really cool fireplace in the centre of the sitting area. The staff had us checked in in no time at all, and were happy to accept payment (cash only I believe) after we had checked in and had time to go to the ATM. The rooms are absolutely incredible. Extremely spacious and warm. They provided 2 heaters which kept the room nice and warm. One of the heaters was a bit loud, but we found out later that the heaters are also fans, and so once the fan is off the heaters just silently heat the room, this was SO appreciated after the long cold nights in San Pedro and the Altiplano. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in bar none. It was absolutely huge (6ft wide) and the mattress was firm but soft at the same time, I have no idea how this was possible. I wanted to ask the staff what type of mattress it was I loved it so much! The TV was a curved smart TV which could play YouTube and Netflix. WiFi was super. Bathroom was large and had constant hot water.

The staff were absolutely wonderful. We told them that we had a bus to catch early the next morning, so they printed all our tickets for free and put breakfast on early just so we could eat before leaving. The woman who works here (I think she may be the owner, I wish I got her name) absolutely defines hospitality. She done everything to ensure our stay was comfortable. She even brought us up some coca cola in the evening just in case we wanted any, she is a credit to this hotel.

The hotel has plenty of coca tea/leaves for the altitude, as well as an oxygen tank at the reception for severe cases. Staying here for a night after the desert was really needed, and if I was to ever return to Uyuni I wouldn't bother looking anywhere else, I'd just go straight to here.

The hotel is perfect! All the luxury I can get in uyuni before going to the Salt flats tour. The room is big with the largest TV i've seen in a hotel room, hot and amazing shower, warm blankets and good breakfest. It costs more than other hotels in uyuni, but it was worth it for me!
Notice: it is a little far from the center, so If you are tired, put that on account

We stayed there in early October.
First the positives: The rooms are nice and spacious, the location is on the far end of town (though that was ok for us) and the hosts are very helpful.

The problem simply is the price charged is too high for what one gets, specifically
- the hotel is being renovated, so from outside it practically looks like a construction site
- the breakfast is really very ordinary. Yes they offer eggs and toast etc but the quality of the product is worse than a hostel charging one-fourth the price

To summarise I would not pay more than a good hostel rate for this place. It does not deserve a hotel pricing.

I stayed for one night ahead of a salt flats tour. The room was spacious, clean and comfy, and the breakfast was one of the best I had in my travels of South America - so much choice. Friendly staff and just a short walk from the centre of town, would not hesitate to recommend.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Just a block or so away from the famous salt hotel (where we had spent a night prior to our salar tour), this place impressed us much more in every way: the staff were more pleasant and seemed better organised, breakfast was tastier, the rooms were much, much warmer and the shower instantly hot...and everywhere seemed well-maintained and spotlessly clean. Overall, a very pleasant experience and on a quiet street too - so zero traffic or passer-by noise (though of course the view is nothing to write home about...but that's Uyuni for you!). Highly recommended.

This hotel is run by their owners. The attention is excellent. The rooms are big and comfortable. They have a heater in the bedroom, which keeps the nights warm and cozy. The hotel is only a year old, nicely decorated. The night includes breakfast. The breakfast is very good, you have a choice of fruits, cereals, pancakes, omelettes, breads, juices, yogurts, tea, coffee, coca leaves (good for the altitude), chocolate and milk.
Since the altitude can affect many people the hotel has its own oxygen tank. They have wi-fi, good television programs and if you need they can lend you a laptop.
When you take a shower it can be uncomfortable to find a good place to put the towels and your clothes. There is only a small hanger by the shower. Make sure you open the packet of soap and shampoo before taking it to the shower. I had to let she water run for a long time before I got the hot water. Once going I enjoyed my shower to the max. Other small detail they do not have a place to put the bar of soap by their sinks.
The sinks are very beautiful, they have used rocks and stones to make them. What makes this hotel special is the way they treat you. In my opinion they deserve a 10 out of 10.

Stayed here for two nights in May. It's a little out of the main town, but an easy enough walk. We were a little concerned when the taxi pulled up, but needn't have been. Inside it's bright, modern, comfortable with the best reception area of any of the hotels we stayed in.

We turned up very early, but there was no issue at all with letting us have the room immediately. Room was large, clean, comfortable. Great bathroom with a nice shower and lots of hot water. Breakfast was decent with a good selection to choose from.

Got to be the best place to stay in Uyuni for the money. It's not completely built yet so looks a bit odd from the outside, but the building work didn't affect our stay at all. No noise or disruption of any kind.

We stayed one night at this newish hotel in Uyuni. Everywhere is very clean. The rooms are spacious and the bed is king size - very comfortable. The pillows are foam, my partner disliked them but I thought they were fine. The bathroom is also new and spacious with a great hot shower. The breakfast is very good, fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juice, breads and eggs cooked to order. No fresh coffee sadly, only instant. All the staff were helpful and friendly.
It is located a few blocks walk from the main town Centre and is located in an area where a lot of building is going on. It’s very quiet for sleeping. The WiFi is excellent.
