This should have been a 5-star rave as it is a beautiful property in a glorious location. However, our chaotic reception left a bad taste with disfigured our 4-night stay. A Jack-the lad, hopelessly untrained young staffer showed us to two rooms, neither of which remotely fitted the photographed description of what we had booked. Luckily with the presence of... More

What sets Hotel Charming apart from other luxury hotels is the very kind, helpful, and friendly staff. They also have a spectacular view, delicious food, and comfortable rooms. If you get the massage in your room, make sure there is an opening for your head on the massage table!

Charming is an ideal place to stay when enjoying what Bariloche has to offer. It sits in a great position on the lake, meaning we had stunning views from our room and giving the hotel a really relaxing feel. Although it is situated slightly outside of the city itself, it is only a 10-minute drive to the centre, with a... More

Everything well arranged with very high comfort level. Nice, spacious but still cozy and comfortable rooms with fantastic bed. Direct access to the beach, beautiful view on the lake, good overall service by all staff members. All necessary info given with a smile. Bus stop in front of hotel to bring you in 15 minutes to the center. Two topics... More

It was an amazing experiece. The rooms were beautiful and this hotel has an amazing view. Highly recommended. They have great staff and great services. I just found the restaurant a little weak, I mean the food was delicious, but the menu was short. This hotel is a must if you are planning to go to Bariloche

The lodge has a great location - around 6 miles north of the too touristy city. With great views and quiet, it punched my ticket for what I seek when relaxing on a vacation. Front desk helpful, hospitable with great English, if your Spanish is rusty and/or lacking.

We stayed in the Charming Suite for our honeymoon. It had a beautiful view and charming wooden suite with a steam room and sauna. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and funny! The restaurant has great food. Definitely worth the stay.

Bariloche was the third and final leg of our 10-day trip to Argentina to celebrate my 50th birthday. Charming Lodge looked and sounded absolutely beautiful, and it was! It is cleverly designed in mostly apartment-style units (well-suited for families), some of which can be subdivided into separate rooms and/or suites. Our travel agency booked us a suite; unfortunately the description... More

Outstanding views. Lovely staff. Big bath tub. They upgraded us for view without even asking. A taxi ride to any sights or town center. Several restaurants within walking distance. Owner is on site and approachable

Every thing you want in a small hotel for several days while exploring the Bariloche area. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Views from almost every room and the restaurant are spectacular. We enjoyed the meals enough to eat there every night.
