We did not find this hotel very comfortable . First , the access was after a long climb on foot . The rooms were very small , irregular in shape as if drawn out of corners . Breakfast was quite ordinary. The town itself had very few Cambios for changing currency into pesos , and the rates were quite adverse... More

If you can avoid, choose another place to stay while in El Calafate. We were very disappointed firstly because the room was so very noisy. You could hear the cars coming in and going out all night long. The service we received was very bad indeed, we nearly missed our excursion to the all glaciers tour with the boat, because... More

I am sorry to say but this place is just a bit odd, old and smelly. When we opened the room it was smelling like it hadn't seen the light of day and air in few weeks (very bad), so we just tried to ventilate it. Everything was quite old but the room was spacious and you did have room... More

We stayed in room 006 (first floor) from Jan 1 and checked out today Jan 4 2013 (flight is 2 hours late, so may as well do the reviews now :-)). First off - Carla make a BIG difference in our stay there. The Kelta hotel, frankly, has some marginal points, but Carla really came across as a very hard... More

I stayed at Kelta for 3 nights and there's nothing negative that I can say about this place. Carla and Lucas were the ones who were there most of the time while I was there and both are very friendly. If ever I get the chance to go back to el Calafate, I will not stay anywhere but in Kelta.

Overall, Kelta is a decent place to stay but there are several negatives. The staff is very friendly however they do not speak very good English, which was difficult at times especially when I had questions regarding my excursions. The food at the hotel is not very good. I would recommend going out to eat. One night I had dinner... More

A simple hotel with very friendly staff and very good value. It's located around 10 minutes walking uphill from the centre and lakeside rooms have a beautiful view over the town and the lake. Rooms and sanitaries were clean and functional. The hotel is managed by a young couple who was really friendly and helpful. On our first day we... More

Rooms are pleasant, but the hallways smell like smoke because guests are permitted to smoke on the landings. Staff is friendly, but breakfast is stale pastries and cold eggs.

We had a very warm and welcome stay at The Kelta. The hotel is well heated and conveniently located. Tha Manager and his wife were very friendly and gave us a lot of inofrmation about El Calafate and its history, including tips on how to enjoy Matte. I would definitley return to this hostelier.
