Where to stay in Oruro

The main area to look for accommodations in Oruro lies to the west of the central train station. Simple, no-fuss hotels sit on the more residential streets close to the station, providing conveniently located lodgings for new arrivals or those wanting to get out and explore the region. Farther to the west, on some of Oruro's most upmarket boulevards, you'll find boutique hotels with themed rooms and plentiful extras, nicely positioned within the scenic town center and offering good views.
