We stayed here for one night on the way through to Chile. Make sure you let the hotel know what time you are planning to arrive. We arrived at lunch time to find La Petit Porte locked, the manager was out at lunch, which left us hanging around on the street during the heat of the day for about 45... More

This small but tasty place is a hidden gem. There is nothing to see or to do in Uyuni....bit boring town....But this small place made us feel at home. The very charming friend of Christophe (who was not there at the moment),knows all our names, helped us to look for a restaurant, even get his car to bring us to... More

Hidden behind "a little door" this was truly a sanctuary of refined taste and excellence in every respect. Our bedroom offered every possible luxury and appeared to have been completely refurbished just before out arrival. It was immaculate. Charming host.

II am sure there have been many like us that have come to the front door of this wonderful little hotel and asked themselves what they have let themselves in for. But it is on oasis. The bedrooms are comfortable. There is no tv but a great range of DVDs to borrow. The wifi was great in our bedroom. David... More

This hotel has gone way beyond my expectation in terms of surrounding, environment, food and services. Absolutely loved everything in this place, and its owner Christophe is a very kind and helpful man. I planned a surprise proposal to my long time girl friend at Uyuni and there were a lot of uncertainties - from finding the travel agencies, to... More

I can only repeat what have been said before in many reviews... Lovely stay: smooth checkin, tastefully decorated common areas (pc & printer available), great/ big/ modern matrimonial room (free tea and water in the room), spacious bathroom without doors ;), great choice for breakfast, amazing strong WiFi ;)) An oasis in Uyuni! Thank you for the great stay!

Very comfortable stay with nice and clean bed, toilet, shower, everything. Stayed here for 2 separate nights before/after our Uyuni tour. Since we had to leave early in both occasions, we were left with ready to go breakfast by Janet, Chris' wife. From the outside one couldn't imagine there's this hotel which has such a nice and charming interior, so... More

La Petit Porte is the right place to stay in Uyuni, I could not make a better choice. Hotel decoration is flawless, very cosy and charming. The room heating and the hot shower is a blessing, considering that Uyuni is very cold. After rough days tripping in the salt flats, getting back there was the rightest thing to do. The... More

This is a really beautiful hotel in downtown Uyuni. My husband and I stayed here for one night in July after taking a day tour of the Salt Flats. It's a little bit of a walk from the main drag, but not too far. Our room was very clean and comfy. The beds were great and the heating was wonderful... More
