After reading all the reviews, we booked 2 nights there in view of exchanging with the family. Unfortunately dinner could not be arranged and the interaction we had with the hosts was to show us our room and then to pay them. There was no further communication nor cultural exchange. We decided not to stay for a second night, definitely... More

We spent two nights at La Casona del Rio in January 2014, and if it wasn't for the flight back to Europe, I would definitely have stayed longer ! La Casona del Rio is the perfect place to relax and enjoy 'dolce farniente' in a beautiful old house, surrounded by impressive landscapes. Perfect also for bike tours or walks, kayak... More

I knew this was the right place to stay just as soon as I sent off an enquiry to Casona del Rio. The response, from Yanina, was very prompt and I felt welcomed immediately. She was even willing to engage in further email conversation as my dates and arrival times changed. It was an online service that I was not... More

We stayed here two nights at the start of our tour to Paragonia tracing our Welsh history and had a wonderful experience, especially on the second night when we had had fantastic Welsh/Argentian night arranged by the family who arranged a surprise byminviting two local Welsh speakers. The welcome by the family was fantastic and the accommodation was simple, clean... More

We stayed at La Casona del Rio for 3 nights, while visiting peninsula Valdes and Punta Tombo. It's a wonderful B&B in a charming location just outside Trelew. The owners are extremely welcoming and warm hearted and we felt treated as if we were part of the family. We spend one night with the family for dinner which was such... More

Not being the sort of people who are excited by tea-houses, we had not planned to spend much time in the Trelew/Gaiman area. But last minute changes to our itinerary in the Peninsula Valdez had us scrambling for a place to stay in Trelew before our flight, and the only place available in our price range was La Casona del...

We were looking forward to staying there from the pictures on the website. It really was nothing like that! There was no swimming - except in a mosquito infested, algae covered water tank- pumped river water. No horse riding, despite the advertisement, as they did not have insurance. It was dusty and hot and no grass -lots of bugs and... More

This is the home where Norma was born. Full of lovely antiques and tresures. Pretty far from Valdes Peninsula but the paleontological museum is outstanding. Memorable hike up 30,000 years in Geoparque Bryn Gwyn. Had the worst meal of the trip at El Viejo Molino in Trelew.

We spent two nights in the Welch community of Trelew at the charming Casona del Río, an old Welch-style home that is now a bed-and-breakfast. We had two of the best dinners of our one month trip in Argentina at the Casona del Río. During and after dinner, we chatted (mostly in Spanish) for hours with the friendly family and... More

We stayed for one night in this B&B. The hosts are very nice people. The room we got was the worst we encountered during our trip through argentina: though it was big and had some " antique" furniture, it was very basic, the bed was very small and not comfortable at all, let alone the cushions. The bathroom was less... More
