This hotel was a haven after freezing for several nights in other hotels. It was the only place I stayed that had true heat, rather than a space heater. So nice to take an amazing shower and be warm. You do need to book ahead and pre-pay, and when arriving at the little door, are worried. But once inside it... More

We had booked this hotel after reading the rave reviews about Christophe and the service. Our experience with the new manager, David, was below expectations. We arrived in the evening after touring the salar and within a minute of checking us in, David wanted to leave. We had an early flight to La Paz the next morning and he informed... More

Well It has been a long time before a bad comment! As Tripadvisor let me the opportunity to give an answer (and thank you for that), I will do it. The lady is wrong (not to say lying) from the title. The hotel did not change ownership. I am still the owner (I am Christophe by the way). I just... More

When you ring the doorbell, you don't know what to expect but as you walk through the small wooden doors, you enter a tranquil paradise. The patio is covered in glass so you feel as if you are outside in the sun without the biting cold. Rooms are exquisitely designed and extremely comfortable. Showers are wonderful. Breakfast is out of... More

We spent two nights here before we start our three days trip to the Salar De Uyuni. The room was spacious with a beautiful set up, and a very efficient heating system. Due to the cold weather at the hotel's patio, the breakfast was served at the room as per the choices we made. Christophe was so attending during the... More

Clean and stylish lodge. Very passionate and helpful host, plus many DVD selection! Took a thorough rest in this lovely place after a tired long day in the salt flats. I'm sure it's the best choice to stay in Uyuni.

I think this is the only place to comfortably stay in Uyuni...very stylish and a great patio / courtyard area with good breakfast (essential, obviously!). The rooms are clean and comfortable and Christophe is super helpful - packaged us up a little take away breakfast for an early flight, and pointed us in the right direction for some good dinner...Enjoy!

this small hotel is beautifully, tastefully and carefully done. Hot water is plentiful, the made to order breakfast is wonderful and the family that runs this hotel makes you feel very welcome. Worth every penny.

No doubt, the best hotel in Uyuni. Because of the Dakar Rally, we were only able to book one night at La Petite Porte (we had wanted to book another night after our salt flats tour). Lovely decor, comfortable bed, thoughtful touches (hairdryer! dvds!) made for an extremely enjoyable stay. Breakfast was delicious - ask for the french toast! Christophe... More

Christophe (The owner) is very kind and helpful. He is also good chef, he made one of the best breakfast for us. The room is so clean and shower room is amazing!!!! We experienced the most wonderful trip in Uyuni because of the hotel. ウユニで一番のホテルです。 塩のホテルも良いかもしれないけど、このホテルを私は推したいです。 なんといってもオーナーのクリストフが素晴らしい!!おちゃめ!! このホテルのために、またウユニに行きたいと思うくらい素晴らしい場所でした。
