I stayed 2 nights at La Chakana in July 2015. The rooms are large with comfortable beds and hot shower. Wifi was free but a bit erratic. The owners seem to be rarely present. The managers (a couple from Putre) are friendly, but do not speak English and are not very helpful to arrange transportation and visits. The main drawback... More

The rooms aren't normal rooms but little cabins, which are spacious, really clean and tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable and cosy - although it was cold at night we were plenty warm enough with the duvet provided and didn't need extra blankets. The breakfast was pretty good - yoghurt, cereals and bread with ham, cheese and jam. Plus... More

I stayed at La Chacana for 20 nights in April and May of 2015. I had planned to stay an additional night, but I changed my plans. Instead of thanking me for my long stay, I was charged a 50% fee for canceling the last night. WiFi was out for the first 6 days I was there. From then on,... More

The cabin are spacious, basic shower/toilet but everything clean. Bed was comfortable enough for a rest after visiting the surroundings. The cabins are a bit outside the town of Putre, we were by car so no issue. The breakfast is quite basic, a bit of fresh juice or scrambled eggs would have been nice.

This place was great - a small walk from putre itself but lovely and quiet with gorgeous views. The rooms are actually individual cabins with bathrooms - bright, spacious and really clean. Very comfy bed, small heater to keep the room warm. Not the most powerful shower but hot water (which can run out if you shower too long but... More

A number of cabañas (cabins) located on a field on the edge of Putre - actually a bit out of town. Only one bus company will get you to the centre of Putre - it's La Paloma from Arica. All other busses will stop on the Arica-La Paz road 4½ km from Putre and the La Chakana cabins are a... More

This little hotel offers clean and spacious bungalows with also spacious bathrooms and working hot showers. There is even a radiator (really necessary - at an alttude of 3,500 m, it can get quite cold at night). Each bungalow has a little bench outside under a roof, which is quite comfortable if you are a smoker. ;) The hotel is... More

We decided to stay in Putre for 2 nights to acclimatize before heading out on some exciting tours. I cannot recommend a stay at this place and will present the reasons below. I would suggest that you only consider staying here if you have no other choice. On the positive side, the place is dead silent at night! The first... More

Nice place made of independent cottages all with bathroom, hot water and AC for 24h and even and electric heater. Rooms big and clean. Definitely one of the best place in which we stayed in our Bolivia/Chile trip. It is a little bit out of town, so it is very quiet, but is better to have a car to get... More

It is in general OK but what could be annoying is that if you don't speak spanish you feel lost here. Nobody speaks any foreign language but spanish. Another problem is that if you don't have a car you must walk more than 1 km uphill to reach the restaurants in the village and at night it is really dark.... More
