The Hotel de Piedra (spanish for Hotel of the Rocks) is made of volcanic rock and is located on the Southern border of the Uyuni Salt Flats, only 170 km from the city of Calama, Chile.
The design of the hotel is inspired by the picturesque environment on the side of which is has been built : an ancient village dating back to precolumbian times.
The hotel is surprisingly beautiful, in a little town called San Pedro de Quemez. There are great views, great local food, coca tea for free (it helps to endure the altitude), warm and clean bed sheets. It is a very good place in the middle of a tough environment.
There is a large reception area with dining room that has a large stove which takes the chill off the room. A corridor with textile wall hangings leads to the bedrooms which are arranged round 2 small covered courtyards.
Guests may want to hike on the Isla Pescado/Incahuasi Island, or visit exotic salt harvesting processing plants.
Not to be missed : a view over Uyuni Salt Flats from Caltama viewpoint at sunset.
Very confortable rooms with artifitial light and hot water using solar panels (4-6 hours/day).
All rooms have comfortable beds with feather stuffed blankets, private bathrooms, heating, wooden floors and running hot water.
Tasty tipical meals.
Don't expect luxury and all the trappings which seem essential to the modern traveller. Enjoy this lovely place with great character and a lot of charm.
