we stayed for three nights. The staff was very helpful. At the time the lift was out of order and I had a broken hip. The staff insisted I use the service elevator. It was not to bad a walk into town. The room was nice and clean and the food was good.

First, the good things: very pleasant lobby and very helpful staff. We also loved the view from the lobby of the lake, and all the birds congregating in this part of the lake -swans, flamingoes, and much more right outside the hotel across the street. No need to trek to Laguna Nimez when they're all congregating right there. The staff... More

As soon as I arrived, I had to deal with a large spider who had taken up residence in the bathtub and I noticed some mold in the bathroom also. Not a great start. It's also an very loud place with congregating areas right next to rooms so that other guests can keep you up all hours of the night.... More

Hotel was booked as part of a glacier tour package. Very pleased with the room, staff have been very helpful and friendly. Location was the only minor complaint. We ate at the hotel restaurant once and found the food reasonably priced and good.

This hotel was booked for us by our tour agent and at first we were concerned that it was quite a way out of town. It was a 15 minute walk in which didn't concern us but could be an issue for some. The communal areas are great, spacious and comfy but our room could have done with a bit... More

We stayed 2 nights. On the outskirts of town in a nice location but a 10 minute plus walk in to town. No complaints but not a great deal of effort from the staff - could have made the place more welcome and inviting

We had booked in Aug and requested a lake view, as the view was worth being out of town. The hotel had confirmed adjoining rooms and view but on our arrival we were told there were no adjoining rooms nor view available. Basic but clean room, the staff was very nice but a bit disappointing as without the view it... More

Lovely hotels and rooms, clean, friendly staff... But the music started around 1 am (separate building maybe 300 ft away!) and stopped around 7 am. Around 4 am, Italked to the clerk at the reception, he told me he would check where it was coming from... Nothing happened and the music continued. I would not recommend this hotel if you... More

We stayed at the Lar Aike at the beginning of October which was the beginning of the Tourist Season. The Hotel is set back a bit from the road and faces a shallow lake across a couple of roads and it is possible to walk along the Boardwalk and onto the Sands and see the Birds and Flamingoes. It is... More

Very nice hotel on edge of town across from Lake Argentino . Good place to stay when visiting Los Glaciares National Park. Free parking in front. The restaurant is Ok but there are better options in town.
