We stayed at this Hosteria for three nights in late January. Its elevated position overlooking the lagoon and the lake beyond is superb and we were lucky to be accommodated in a room giving us these wonderful views. The room was spacious and comfortable with easy chairs and coffee table looking through the full size window. There was a pleasant... More

First I would like to say that the staff and manager here are amazing. They bent over backwards to help us and accommodate our needs. The hotel is old and in need of some major updates. However, with a 5 star rating, we expected something much different than what we found on arrival. The bathrooms were nice, but the rooms... More

A beautiful setting, bright spacious areas to relax in with tasteful rustic décor, good food and excellent management. We cannot speak too highly of the welcome we received and the way we were looked after, particularly when we needed medical help. Agustina could not have done more to assist. A real ”Home from home”. Would thoroughly recommend La Estepa!

We stayed here in Nov 2013 and it was the most memorable of all the hotels because of the friendly host, Agustina, and her family.It made it feel special. We loved the home cooked evening meals, the little shop selling good quality wool scarves,hats etc, the remoteness of the location, the atmospheric antique/vintage decor, the views over Lago Argentino......

We stayed here for three nights at the end of a two-week trip through Patagonia and found it comfortable and relaxing. Augustina and her staff were very welcoming and helpful, recommending and booking some excellent restaurants in the town and arranging taxis etc. We had a reasonably large room on the ground floor with a nice bathroom and lovely view...

We spent two nights (wish it had been longer) at La Estepa and loved our stay. Augustina and her staff looked after us so well, and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend the Estancia Cristina boat and four by four trip which she booked for us. Good food and relaxed atmosphere. Lovely sitting and decking area with glorious views... More

We travelled around Argentina and Chile for a month and this was one of our favourite places. At La Estepa we stayed in Room 9 which had a king bed and a lovely view over the lake. There is a spacious lounge on the first floor with amazing views and many interesting books and artefacts. Breakfast included fruit, yoghurt, ham,... More

Located 5km out of town, it is set up on a mound and has superb views of the lake. The rooms are a good size and certainly ours had a superb picture window overlooking the lake. The furnishings, and especially the carpets, are a bit tired and the whole place feels like it needs a cash injection to smarten things... More

We stayed here during our 2 month travels in South America and it was one of our favourite places during the trip. Firstly, fantastic views over Lago Argentino adds to the tranquility of the setting. Food is excellent (esp. the Patagonian lamb which we had twice), and the rooms are clean, pleasant and spacious. But what really sets this apart... More

After returning from a visit to Perito Moreno glacier, we arrived at La Estepa and were so impressed by the beautifully decorated lounges and rooms, and the lovely views. We were greeted personally by Mora who introduced us to the hotel and our room. Dining at the restaurant was a wonderful experience and breakfast was delicious. All the staff were... More
