We stayed at the Best Western portion of Villa Sofia, which has cabin-like units (as opposed to the hotel). First, the pros- nice, secluded guest houses in a wooded area of a quiet neighborhood. The studios are like wood cabins that are very quaint and comfortable. There is a good kitchenette too. Now the cons, we were told that breakfast... More

Villa Sofia is a good hotel, with friendly staff, acceptable breakfast but with no view to the lake Nahuel Huapi and a few details that are not proper for a 4 star hotel. - Location: About 10 blocks from the horrible center of the city and a few minutes walk from the lake.Neighbourhood is not nice though has a supermarket...

The location of Villa Sofia is about a 10-15 minute walk to the center of town so if you're looking to be removed from a busier location this might suit you. The walk feels safe to town - just not the best sidewalks and a little hilly at times if you're an older person. The hotel is off a main... More

We had a fair room for 5 nights in this spa resort. The staff was very helpful and friendly at all times. My only criticism is that the dining room where breakfast is available, is definitely not on standard for a 4-star hotel. The tables are not laid out and the tablecloth on our table was a little dirty by... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our tour of Bariloche with a 5 and 3 year old. The rooms are very large, plenty of space for cooking in the kitchen, have a coffee maker, microwave and oven which is nice in the morning & evening when you don't feel like eating out. There's a supermarket across... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Sofia Resort and Spa for four days this November and loved every minute. The front desk staff was exceptionally helpful and went out of their way to provide us with recommendations, directions, electrical converters...you name it. The room was huge and had ample space, including a loft off of the main area. In... More

Very nice big apartment with most facilities. Heating was good and kitchen was ok. WIFI worked well in the room as well. No toaster or electric kettle, you need to boil your water on the stove and cook toast also on the gas stove. There is a utensil to cook the toast that did the job well. Supermarket right across...

This hotel was the best hotel we have stayed in during our entire trip in ARG. The room is just perfect, clean with comfortable bed and clean bed sheets.

The gym is very old as well as the shower facilities, swimming pool and spa were out of service. Yet we had the pay 120 pesos! Although staff is friendly, the place is not recommendable. No value for money.
