I have been driving in Bolivia. Uyuni is rather rough, I thought the hotel would not a place to recover from long driveling. I was pleasantly surprised, great relaxing night.

Hotel itself is the highlight, nothing around
the hotel itself is the highlight, the hotel and many beautiful decorations are made with salts and salt blocks, do spend some time both in daytime and at night to take some pictures! otherwise, the hotel is near nothing, there’s nothing around. we attempted to walk 30mins towards the salt flats, and it’s a waste of time, there’s nothing close to clear white salt grounds or water pools with mirrow effect near the hotel. from our later tour experience, its like 15-30mins DRIVE distance to get any nice area of the salt flat. So, do not expect to be able to walk over to the salt flats and see anything spectacular. Remember to book dinner in advance or when you check in, as there are nothing around. Nice rooms, warm showers, and nice window with a open view towards the salt flat side.

Generalmente la cena suele ser buffett.... pero esta vez la cena fue pesima(y eso que no esta incluido en el hospedaje es un costo aparte). Ver al personal frente a las gradas matandose de risa tampoco fue muy agradable.... parecio que no tuvieran interes en los huespedes. Reserve 5 habitaciones de la cual 1 el lavamanos desbordaba agua por todos lados necesitan conservar mejor el hotel!!!

L'enfer blanc du Salar
Au bord du Salar d'Uyuni le désert de sel l'emplacement est idéal. Construit en sel, hôtel vraiment surprenant. Après un jour de ballade magnifique dans le Salar dépaysement garanti.. Grande chambre en sel bien sûr mais équipement minimaliste. On top, chauffage quasi inexistant et totalement inexistant la nuit.
