Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is a great place to stay if you are touring Eduardo Alvaroa National Park and Uyuni. We stayed here the second night of a four day tour that started in Tupiza. The water was super hot and plentiful and the electric blankets on the bed much welcomed after a long day at such cold altitudes. The accomodations were definitely superior to the Tayka hotel that we stayed at the night before and on the subsequent night. The food was good and the management very attentive. As many people have said, you won't find luxury accomodations in these parts, but this is truly all you need and then some.

This hotel is on the outskirts of a small village. It is very tastefully decorated and the walls are exposed rock which give it lots of character. It was very cold in our room until the heating was put on. We had read that electric blankets were provided but there weren't any in our room. There was a very low lintel to the bathroom which my husband managed to hit his head on. Unless you are very short be very careful. Nice breakfast and friendly owners.

Our second night of our 4 days trip we stayed at beautiful hotel mallku cueva. it is built just at a huge rock which gives the hotel a special atmosphere. the rooms were very nice decorated with lots of nice details. the barhroom was very new and clean with hot shower. the heating was working the whole night so we felt great!
the food was ok, nothing special. the people there very attentive and friendly!

Compared with other hotels in this very remote region, this is a very nice hotel : very clean, nicely decorated and recently renovated. Bedrooms have good lighting, comfortable comforters on the beds, real heating that the owner turns on at night. Bathrooms are nice and clean, with real toilets (and not 'ecologic" ones..). The food was good, warm, in a warm and welcoming dining room.
People who wrote bad reviews of this hotel should go to Los Flamencos at laguna Hedionda (same region), there they will experience what is a very bad 'hotel', ( rather call it a bad refuge..), expensive, dirty, cold, with terribly smelly toilets and awful food, and last but not least, very unwelcoming owners!

I don't expect anything luxurious in the middle of a desert in Bolivia, and I was really surprised with this hotel. A very friendly staff, always trying to help us. Bedroom and bathroom were ok. After a day cruising bolivian desert, all we needed was a good bath and a warm bed, and this we surely got. They provided hot water for coffee and tea, and some bread for snacks, and later offer us a restoring dinner. The next day we were able to continue our journey trough this wonderful Country.

I REALLY liked this place and principally because the owner operator paid attention to our party and provided what we needed. We arrived after dark and it was COLD (and I'm from Canada). I was with a travel party of five as a single. Hot tea was ready, dinner was hearty and filling and even the wine was good. The proprietor had what I think is the best single invention for cold Bolivian nights - electric mattress warmers - which were brilliant. Look this is not a "destination" hotel but considering where it is the owner has done a stunning job.

Room Tip: Try the white wine and enjoy the warmth of the bed.

Compared to the Tayka del Sal (Tahua), these owners seem to work just as hard, but the result of their efforts made for a much more enjoyable stay. The room was quite small, but each bed had an electric blanket. There was also a wall mounted room heater.
Cold in late July ???....NO, we weren't !
The cosy dining room had an open fireplace and gas heating.
For its isolation, the food was very good.
I've read the previous reviews, but we have to say that we enjoyed this place more than many other Bolivian "remote" accommodations.
