“Big comfy bed, hot shower, and central!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We stayed here for a few nights and were quite pleased with our stay. The location of the hotel was unbeatable - on the main drag, near to plenty of restaurants, markets, and shops. The room was very clean and comfortable. A little rough around the edges. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of heavy blankets to keep warm, which you will need because the rooms were very cold. The shower (electric heater) was very hot. A good bet for a few nights in Uyuni.

Hotel avenida was a good enough stay for one night before my Uyuni excursion. It was clean and comfortable. Uyuni is cold at night but I was warm enough in all of the blankets provided. There were hot showers too (boiling hot), I had to queue for a but I was just glad to be having a hot shower.

The hotel is a good location, next door to immigration, and one block from shops/casa de cambios/restaurants.

The major plus of Hotel Avenida was that a single room (shared bathroom) only cost 40 BOB! Compared to accomodation elswhere in Bolivia this hotel is pretty basic but for a night in Uyuni, it is definitely one of the better options!

We were meant to go on a 3 day trip but my friend was ill so at the last minute we had to find accommodation in Uyuni. Hotel Avenida worked out cheaper than the hostel we visited and they let us check in at 9am. Showers aren't great but rooms are nice and bright. Overall great value for money

Hotel in Avenida falls rather into motel type of category than hotel.
It offers super basic, tiny ( puritan) rooms ( with shared bathroom) and nothing else.
Forget about internet, shared space/lobby or any type of facilities.
So the real choice of this hotel is based on its price ( the cheapest hostel/hotel we found in centre of Uyuni) rather than anything else.

Cons:
- tiny rooms ( but most with window)
- no locker or any furnitures.
- no meals ( free neither paid)
- no internet ( free neither paid)
- no running water in the bathroom ( rather a norm in Uyuni)
- staff doesn't speak English ( but were rather friendly)
- rooms require renovation


Pros:
-location
-price
-free washing sinks ( rare thing this days in hostels)
-relatively secure ( although we manged to get in to the hotel and take a shared shower without being asked a word)

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor are slightly brighter

Clean & tidy rooms. It was about USD $5 p/p for a private 3 bed room. I think all the room types (single/dbl/triple) work out the same price p/p) Bathrooms were shared. Felt safe & secure, really good location close to the best tour operators & banks. Bus terminal about 10 minute walk.

The receptionist was very unfriendly. We had a double room ensuite which was simple but ok. The bathroom was a bit dirty. The wifi was very poor. The price is quite cheap for the rooms.
The location is ok, you can easily walk from the bus terminal.

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
