Hotel Mitru, Tupiza

Hotel Mirtu

Basic but agreeable hotel in the centre of Tupiza with a swimming pool and well-kept garden.

The remote little town of Tupiza is not on the tourist trail, and Hotel Mitru is probably the best option around. One of its most attractive features is a well-proportioned outdoor swimming pool, screened by a rustic adobe wall and adjacent to a neat and pleasant garden.

The décor has a certain quirky Bolivian charm, and the facilities, though simple, make for a reasonably comfortable stay.

Our Expert's Opinion

This hotel is a great base from which to explore the amazing rock formations around Tupiza. The accommodation is simple but comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It’s just a short walk from town too, so very handy for the local restaurants.
