Great location is probably it's downfall

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 May 2011
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 internet (it didn't!) and it was just opposite the bus terminal which suited us.

The hotel was standard business hotel, a bit tired, but ok. We had a room overlooking the bus terminal on the main road which meant it was very noisy most of the night with traffic. The room was also stuffy, but if we opened the window the fumes from outside filled the room.
The carpet was warn and the shower doors didn't really shut properly, it was powerful though and hot.

The staff were friendly though and breakfast was quite good, and the location is ideal for a stop over. Didn't feel very safe walking around at night though and there are limited decent places to eat around unless you like street food / aka fried chicken.

Taxi's are cheap, so you might consider staying somewhere a little quieter if you want a decent nights sleep.
Date of stay: April 2011
Room Tip: I think all the rooms overlook the road.
Trip type: Travelled as a couple
