Stayed here before and after my Aconcagua attempt. The service and atmosphere are absolutely unparalleled. I can't personally say enough good things about the owner (Steve) and his staff. The food was outstanding and the breakfast provided every morning always started the day off right. The rooms were warm and comfortable and it was evident the amount of work that... More

comfortable, simple, elegant. great place to see the andes, to start a trek, or just to relax. The rooms are small, but the showers are strong. Great views out the balcony. Food was outstanding, breakfast included. Quiet place to relax.

A fantastic place to start and end an adventure in the Andes. The Ayelen has the charm of an old European chalet with Steve and his team providing wonderful hospitality to their guests. The food is great, the drinks are cold and the atmosphere is fantastic. The rooms are on the simple side but it's clean and that's what counts... More

If you want to start your climb of Aconcagua in a very comfortable way go to Steve in the hotel (not the hostel) Ayelen with the beautyful athmosphere, the fine meals, the cool drinks and the best service you can find in Los Penitentes. After climbing Aconcagua you will enjoy the old styled and good assorted bar at the hotel... More

I stayed at Ayelen hotel for one night on the way to climb Aconcagua with a group of climbers. The location is very convenient as it allows to access the Aconcagua park via both Horcones and Vacas valleys. The hotel is nice and clean ans the hosts are friendly and helpful. But the biggest surprise was the restaurant. The selection... More

We stumbled upon the Ayelen hotel late night in the Andes and were greeted by a wonderful receptionist whose smile was genuine, instructions accurate and english impeccable. We later meet the hotel owner and manager Steve. He obviously hand picked his staff who all were extremely bright, well educated and congenial. Steve's young professional staff said and did the right... More

Steve and Mecha have done and continue to do a lot of renovations to this lovely inn Their food was great. And what made the place was Steve and Mecha. They gave... More

Great hotel for before and after Aconcagua. Staff and food are the strengths of the hotel. Staff is friendly and knowledgable. I wish I could have the empanadas now. Location is right next door to Grajales Expeditions, and a short ride from the park entrance. The rooms aren't fancy, but if you're going hiking/climbing in the area it has everything... More

The Hotel Ayelen is the best one in the area; the renovation looks great and we had 3 excellent meals. The proprietor Steve & his wife make you feel at home & go way out of their way to help. I would go back.

This hotel is an excellent base for trekking in the nearby Aconcagua Park. The staff has been very helpful to us, with excellent advice on the treks. In particular, do not miss the 2 or 3 day trek to Cerro Penitentes: it's a must, it's free access (outside of the park), you can start the trek from the hotel, and... More
