Amazing staff. Friendly, helpfull and very nice. Location is one of a kind at the foot of vulcani Thunupa. They "upgraded" the restaurant and the chef is making magic there and the service impecable. We go there at least once a year and have visited about 5 times now and it just keeps improving.

This Hotel is an Oasis in the Salar. Made of salt, it offers everything one disires. The food is spectacular, drinks very delicious (try the Singany Sour!) and the staff extraordinary friendly. Manager Rene is always super helpful and knows how to make his guests feel at home.

We stayed here the first night as part of our three day Ruta Tayka tour. We were very impressed by the professional attitudes of the staff. They were courteous, helpful and always ready to be of service. We we were surprised to get a fantastic room which looked like a suite. King sized bed, large sitting area near the windows...

We were happy with this place, though we kept our expectations very low. Our room slept 3, and it was bare-bones -- meaning just beds and a private shower. There was a heater, but didn't work -- so our room was freezing. Though, the whole place (meaning the common areas) was very cold. We had a (set) dinner and breakfast....

The hotel is located at 3,696 m altitude and, at the time of our visit, it was undergoing an extension that will make it look more like the Tayka Desert Hotel, where we stayed the following night. We stayed here as part of our three days crossing from Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama. The room was decent, hot water...

We joined this hotel with our trekking group. The hotel is good located at the Salar de Uyuni and close to climb the volcano Tunupa. The Hotel has hot showers in the morning and evening which is important after hiking. Dinner and breakfast is more then enough and even friendly for veggies and vegans as we. Very friendly and english...

Although not on par with city hotels, this hotel does a nice job in a remote location on the edge of Salar de Uyuni. The staff were friendly. The food was decent. The decor was simple but charming. The room was spacious and clean, and there was hot water until the sun went down (water is heated by solar energy)....

This is the 3rd Tayka property I stayed at during my time in Bolivia and it was the at the bottom of the pile. One can't argue that the location is fantastic and the hotel extremely unique but it seems that this hotel does far worse than the other Tayka hotels I stayed at in terms of comfort, food and...

We rode our motorbikes over dusty roads and through forgotten villages when suddenly this oasis of comfort appeared. It was completely unexpected that you could get this quality hotel in this part of Bolivia The service and food are great too.

We stayed at Hotel Tayka de Sal for one night during a two day tour of the Salar de Uyuni. This hotel is a community project staffed and maintained by the local inhabitants of the hamlet of Tahua (or Tawa). Tahua is an isolated (and very peaceful) spot that lies on the extreme western rim of the salt flats. As...

“Do check with the staff when hot water and electricity will be available. When we were there, electricity is available 6.30 pm - 9.30 pm and hot water is available but probably won't last throughout the night. It'll be best if you bathe while there's still daylight or before all the hot water's been used up.”
