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

Stayed here twice while climbing Aconcagua and can't fault the place. Looks a bit like a Scooby Doo set," the old abandoned ski resort" but once inside it's just gorgeous. Lovely spacious and spotless rooms, great restaurant and the coolest playlists in Argentina providing a relaxing ambience. Still to summit so will be back.

After coming down from Aconcagua tired and hungry was given a very warm welcome by the owner Stephen, he looked after us so well, fed and watered us out of the kindness of his heart and it is something I will not forget. As I did not summit Aconcagua on this trip I will return and stay in this hotel... More

I stayed at the Ayelen before and after climbing Aconcagua. The rooms are large and comfortable, very quiet. Hot water is consistent and free flowing. The best part of this hotel is the food. Every meal was excellent. Service and staff and really cool. You will have a nice time at this hotel.

Pretty cool hotel. Steve the owner is a 1st class guy. He will go out of his way to make sure your stay goes well. He even drove me to the Aconcagua mountain road. The cast and crew of the movie "seven years in tibet" with brad pitt stayed there while shooting at the nearby aconcagua mountain. Restaurant has good... More

Our room was clean and cosy, food was excellent, all the staff are brilliant, and Steve the owner really helped us out a lot- especially... More
