The yard isn’t very inspiring but for a night a good place right in town. Also got it down to 80 bol for two in the van. Good shower, good internet, good safety

Report Check-In

We chose to stay here as it was the only place our truck would fit in. The gate is 3.8m heigh and 2.2 width (aprox). They asked for 100bol/night for two people regardless if we would sleep in the truck or room. In the end we managed to negotiate 80bol/2 people as we would sleep in the truck. The showers were very good, hot. The internet very good too. Nothing special besides a quiet and safe place to sleep before the border crossing with Argentina.

Report Check-In

We were lucky and scored the room #103 which is downstairs, next to the outside restroom. We had our vehicle parked just a few meters away. Room was good but hot as it gets the afternoon sun. Luckily for us we had fan in our motorhome that we used in the room. Kitchen is good for cooking. Wi-Fi is outstanding. You can use the swimming pool at the main Mitru hotel and we even got a discount at Tupiza tours for staying there. Price was 90 Bolivianos for two people. Location is good, just across the street from the black market. The shower had very hot water and it was amazing. They keep everything very clean.

This is the left over from Hotel Mitru.It is cheap and you can camp in the parking for the same price of the room if you like.It is not the cleanest or the best option in town but is for sure the cheapest.As an overnighter worked fine for us

Very friendly. We stayed in a room and used our camper too, in their parking lot. Very clean bathroom and room. Nice hot shower. Pet friendly- our cats enjoyed the garden/parking lot. Paid 100 Bol.

Report Check-In

Very secure parking at the back of the hotel, with room for about 4 vehicles. Centrally located with a good market across the road. Paid 80 bolivianos for a room (2 people), with shared bathroom. They initially said 100 but we took a tour with Mitru so got the price down. Not sure if it is still the same price to sleep in your vehicle. There is a bathroom accessible from the backyard/carpark, and it looks like there is a power point you could use. Still no wifi but no problem to use it at Mitru, just show them your room key. Having a full kitchen to use is amazing!
