Though we appreciated the experience (I wouldn't say enjoyed) we would not stay here again if there was a half decent alternative. The salt theme is fine and impressive in the corridors and public areas but, for the comfort of guests, should not be extended to the rooms. These have crunchy salt crystal floors which spread over the meagre rugs. There are heaters but we slept under three duvets to keep warm. We waited ages in the bar area for someone to take a drinks order but eventually had to go and find someone. At dinner the food was not great – chewy meat, cake with milk for dessert -and all the plates were cold so anything which started off hot very soon cooled down. Fantastic views over the salt lake through vast windows – if you can stand the cold.

This hotel has a fantastic location on the edge of the salt flats. We had a room with a marvelous view providing yet more photo opportunities as the sun rose over the salt flats. The room was clean and had a heater which kept it acceptably warm. The food was good but the staff in the restaurant were disorganised and hence very slow. The hotel and virtually eveything in it are built from salt which is pretty unique but the downside is the loose salt which covers every floor and really does get eveywhere!

Reviews suggest this is the best hotel in Uyuni (&/or on the edge of the Salt Flats) and this may well be 100% correct. I have no way of knowing. The location is amazing, though our room had no view whatsoever (apart from a rock-face of salt). There are little sitting-rooms on the salt-flat side of the hotel with good views, including the (on our visit) not-very-inspiring sunsets.

It is very, very cold and the bedding is suitably voluminous; central heating does not work but there are decent gas fires in the bedrooms (but cold bathrooms). A good night's sleep.

You pay for the location - no bar, rather bleak dining room, service is adequate, food is adequate, drinks are expensive and wine not particularly good. The people (mainly women) portering are efficient, and a maid helpfully lit a fire for us in one of the small sitting-rooms overlooking the salt flats. Front desk not very helpful though.

Dinner was adequate but with minimal choice. Breakfast was very much "take it or leave it" until our excellent local guide (Liz from Candelaria Tours) arrived and sorted them all out !

But of course the whole point is that it is on the edge of the salt flats, and the building, tables, beds etc. are all constructed out of salt blocks. That is most definitely worth seeing, and it is an excellent base for setting out to see the superb salt flats. So you can't judge this place by usual hotel criteria. Just a little bit more management attention to detail would make it excellent.

This hotel is gorgeous, very unique and nicely decorated and only a couple of minutes drive to the Salar (you can see its edge from hotel)
The rooms are nice and comfortable.
In August it gets freezing cold during the night and the heating in the rooms is enough to keep an acceptable temperature and the beds have enough covers to keep anyone warm (if you have any problem with the heating in your room, inform the front desk and they will provide functioning heaters).
The worst part of our two nights there was the water problems in the morning. The hotel has enough water and enough hot water but for some reason they only turn it on at a specific hour and sometimes cut it off without warning (variable excuses from the front desk upon questioning). Both mornings we warned the hotel staff and the problem was fixed and we were able to have a hot shower. However it's quite bothering to have to walk out of your warm room into the freezing common areas to reach the front desk (there's no phones) and ask to have a shower.
This is a problem specially if you have to leave early: you can not find anyone at the front desk until around 7am at which time we were already running late!
I could accept and understand if in such a remote location there were difficulties having enough water and enough hot water and you paid accordingly but with a functioning system it is just ridiculous to put guests through this trouble instead of a warning of "no hot water until 7:30am" in which case you'd just opt to take a shower in the evening!
Food was ok, breakfast not so good, dinner was better.
Worth staying there but be aware of these flaws

Room Tip: Few rooms have views to the salar

We stayed in this hotel for one night.Whole hotel build of salt blocks and floor was entirely covered by salt lumps , it was magnificent .From there you may see the Solar it was about 5-8 minutes drive to salt desert . We ask for heather on room,and when we switch it , was warm enough,in spite of bitter cold out. Staff was very friendly and helpful ,food was O.K.
