We paid a significantly lower price here than elsewhere on our trip through Chile and Argentina, which is nice. The hostería is located smack in the town center of Gaiman, a pleasant town with still obvious Welsh roots. We used it as a base to explore Chubut. Looking back, we'd better limited our stay in Gaiman, since there isn't much... More

Small but stunning village in Patagonia will take your breath away; this hostel/B&B is perfect with gracious hosts and very comfortable and affordable, more than well kept, neat, shiny clean. Loved it in this town and at this hostel! Peace and quiet like you've never experienced it ...

We stayed for 2 nights in this b&b and we recommend it. Valeria and Mariano were very nice and friendly and gave us a map and good advice about what to see, where to go for dinner, etc, The place has a lovely old fashioned atmosphere. The room was large and provided with air conditioning. The bathroom was absolutely clean,... More

Gaiman is not exactly a cultural mecca, but for what it was, the room was ok. The hosts were very nice and very easy going. The hotel is an ok place to stay if you are going to Punto Tombo to look at penguins.

My wife and I stayed here for one night, as we arrived on the late flight into Trelew and wanted a place to rest our head before visiting the penguins at Punta Tombo the next day. We were renting a car, so the 20 minute drive to Gaiman seemed a cheaper and nicer accommodation choice than Trelew. Small, cozy with... More

We stayed here for one night over Easter weekend. The review in our travel guide described this place as being in need of a makeover, but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was a good size with lots of storage as well as a decent bathroom. The hostess was very friendly and let us stay past checkout time for my... More

This is a very nice B&B run by a very pleasant couple who speak both Spanish and Welsh... Very good value for money and bang in the centre of Gaiman

We got into Gaiman with no hotel reservations and tried a few before getting to Yr Hen Ffordd. May is very low season in Gaiman and many places were supposedly open but in reality they were closed. We stayed for two nights and being the only people there (together with the incredible hospitality of our host) it really felt like... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experiment the passionate lifestyle of Gaiman. “Yr Hen Ffordd”, the Welsh name for “The old Road”, is situated in a unique place only a few steps away from the main attractions of the town. It has renewed rooms with all the necessary services to make of your stay a pleasant experience.The road on which this hundred year old house is located is of great historical value because, apart from being one of the oldest roads in the town, it is only a block away from some of main tourist attractions, such as the main square, Gaiman’s first house and the First School of Patagonia.This old road surrounded by hills provides a unique setting for the history of the Welsh settlers in Patagonia. ... more   less
