My booking was at Hotel Julia but I saw the sign of this hotel and decided to take a look. The door was closed and I knocked at the door. The lady from the reception opened the door and was very friendly and helped me look on at a room that was vacant. She spoke reasonable good English. It is... More

It is a small hotel, but really amazingly well kept and maintained, in a dusty and dirty town of Uyuni. You fill find a refuge from dust and gloom of the city in this hotel, with excellent beds, down blankets and all other small things that make your stay enjoyable.

We stayed here before and after our 3 day salt flat tour and absolutely loved it, with only 4 rooms it was gorgeous, small, tidy and very well kept. The service was amazing and breakfast was very good. Lovely hot showers and warm rooms which is great when it's freezing outside. Would highly recommend this little hotel to anyone travelling...

We stayed at the Hotel La Petite Porte in Uyuni for 1 night after a 3-day trip through the Salar ($100). When you walk through the little door from the gritty streets of Uyuni, you fall like Alice in Wonderland into a world of tranquillity and beauty. From a lobby crowded with potted plants you pass into a long, glass-roofed... More

I always claim that reviewing hotels and else makes sense only in comparative terms. If you are in Uyuni, Bolivia the best bet in terms of hotel is this small, boutique-like little place. Great service, English-friendly, comfortable bed, hot shower, and costumized breakfast in your room. I really recommend it. For my head, though, the pillow could have been smaller... More

This is hands down one of the best places. It is truly an oasis in the middle of Uyuni. The entrance is inconspicuous, but you won't be disappointed by what you find when you make your way through the doors. Every morning they make breakfast to order for you and they have a selection of classic VHS movies to watch.... More

Anyone going to Uyuni(town) with high expectations in accommodation, they will be disappointed. However La Petite Porte is with no doubt the best accommodation Uyuni as to offer. The lady (Georgina) that welcomed us was the super friendly and provided us with everything we needed. Despite the rooms being quite basic, which is perfectly fine considering where you are, the...
