Although no longer used as a hotel, you can still visit it and now it functions as cafe where you can sit on a bench made of salt and put your coffee on a table made of salt. The whole building and hotel furniture are made of salt, something hard to believe until you see it with your own eyes.
It is in this hotel,at the edge of the salar, where we spend the first night, and dawn comes about 5:30 am which to see the vastness of the Salar is unique and invaluable. The hotel is simple but quite comfortable, especially compared to the second night, which we spent at almost 5000 meters above sea level.
In Uyuni, the starting point for all excursions to the salt mine and the surrounding desert, I stayed at the Hotel Avenida. This is a clean hotel, well run and cheap (rooms with bathroom for 5 €, and without bathroom € 3!). In contrast, the hot water is not available after a certain time.
A hostel that offers little more than a bed and a shower. The rooms are 50 bolivianos for a single room with shared showers, 70 bolivianos for a double room with shared showers, and up to 220 bolivianos for a suite. It is expensive, very expensive compared to what you can find in general in Bolivia, especially given the non-existent services.
Private room with shower: 50 bolivianos. 25 bolivianos for a night in a shared bedroom with shower and hot water. A small, colourful guesthouse in the heart of the city. As a bonus, there is a sauna, jacuzzi, and kitchen. They boast of having hot water at all times - something that not all the hostels in the area can offer.
A little hotel where you can have a room for 80 bolivianos a head, including breakfast, but without any other services. Suffice it to say that it's quite expensive - about 10 euros - for Bolivia, even if the prices are much lower than what you'd find in Europe. It's true that it's located in the heart of the city, but the sheer unfriendliness of the staff means that I must recommend that you go elsewhere.
This is a hostel with modest facilities. You can sleep for 40 bolivianos if you want heating, or 30 bolivianos without. The winter is particularly cold here, so if you do want to risk staying without heating, bring a sleeping bag. If you have a shower, the rate rises to 50 bolivianos. You can stay in similar places more cheaply elsewhere in Uyuni.
It is one of the best and nicest hotels in the city, with cozy rooms arranged around a courtyard, with furniture carved from huge blocks of salt. Its central location, hot water at any time, and the opportunity to book trips, make it the perfect place to stay.
A small hostel, bright, and relatively inexpensive, on Avenida Potosi. You can sleep here for 30 bolivianos, and breakfast is 16 extra. Very good value. Tours can be booked for 600 bolivianos, including three days in nearby parks. Or you can spend 180 for a day trip, not including the parks.
A small, rather charmless hotel, but very cheap. You can find a single bed here for 25 bolivianos. There is no concept of decoration - it's really just a place to sleep and shower. There's no heating, so bring a sleeping bag!
I stayed for 3 nigths and the hotel is beatiful, great experience and nice staff
This hotel is the only one to offer a spa in all región, that is wonderful because you can relax and enjoy a great massege.
The food is local and tasty as well the decoration are unique.
This hotel is made all with salt.
