I will preface this review by saying that Oruro is a very remote and underdeveloped city that only really draws outsiders for about 4 days a year, so it would be unfair to judge it by the same standards of a more international city like La Paz. HOWEVER, I've stayed in much cheaper, much cleaner, and much more friendly hotels... More

- USD$36 per night = 240 BS per night = Free breakfast included before 9.30am. They will also give you a call in the morning and ask you if you want to stay for another night. - Breakfast consists of stale bread, cold ham, cold hard-boiled egg and the highlight was the free flow of coca tea bags and hot...

I was there during Carnaval, an event that attracted 400 thousand people to the city, according to media reports. I must say that the cost $450 US Dollars for a double room for 3 nights may not reflect the average rate, certainly demand played a role. The place is clean, well mantained, offers a nimble breakfast but not bad. The... More

A lovely European styled hotel located just across the street from the Bus terminus. In fact, I only decided to try this place after I found out that the place I was supposedly booked in to by Bolivia Travel (and for which a deposit had been paid), was both full, and had not received notice of my reservation anyway. Zero... More

We arrived late at night in Oruro so had to make a quick choice. Not in the usual budget, this place cost us about 22GBP/30USD for the twin room but it was clean, good matresses, cable tv, very hot shower and clean bathroom with soap, shampoo, t.p.. Very comfi over all. The staff were helpful. Breakfast was included and offered... More

We stayed just one night in Oruru to break up our journey from Potosi to La Paz as we didn't want to travel at night. Oruru itself has nothing bus fumes and traffic to offer, but the road trip from Potosi was spectaular and I would recommend it. We decided to stay at Samey Wasi as Footprint said it had... More

“February is Carnaval month, rates skyrocket, book early, advanced payments are required and credit cards are not the best way to go...anywhere in Oruro.”
