It's like home away from home, only better! Overlooking the lake, well appointed rooms, great service. Our 'room' was like a small apartment - mini-kitchen with fridge, microwave, dishes (and even a salt shaker and pepper grinder!); living and dining space, and bedroom upstairs. All the windows overlook the lake, so whether you are lying in bed, sitting upstairs on... More

I have come to realize boutique hotels are not for me. In El Calafate, however, I don't see where there is much of a choice, if you want a reasonably priced, kind-of roomy, well-reviewed hotel. Los Ponchos is about a 30 minute walk to the city center. And the taxi meters move at light-speed. Taxis don't just drive around near... More

Great place with views over the Lake Argentina which are stunning. Enormous bedrooms, very attractively contemporary furnished. Toilet and bathroom are down the stair case in each two floor apartment. Not ideal and could be a problem for some, but for a short visit was OK. The breakfast delivered to the room was simple but excellent quality: freshly squeezed orange... More

Small and cosy place to stay in El Calafate. It is far from the downtown but it is located in a strategic position with wonderful view of the lake. It is necessary to have a car to visit the city and the attractions. The windows' bathroom of the room we stayed was positioned inside the hotel (a bit strange architecture).... More

Well apportioned, clean and quiet rooms. If you don't mind a walk, it takes only 20-30 minutes to walk to town depending upon where you're headed. We stayed here twice so can point out that the kid friendly rooms - those with child safety netting, gates, etc. - are markedly more worn. That's not to say that the kid friendly... More

We only stayed one night but they treated us like we were going to be there a week - very friendly and helpful. These are not hotel rooms they truly are nice one-bedroom apartments so if you're staying a little while you can be very comfortable making some of your own meals or just coffee or tea in the morning....

Los Ponchos is an amazing little boutique hotel! My only complaint was that I booked the hotel outside of town since they advertised bikes on their webpage. However, when we arrived, we were directed to a bike rental shop and told the hotel did not have bikes available. Luckily, we're in good shape and could walk the 1-2 KM to... More

This place was delightful! My wife and I came to El Calafate for our honeymoon and this was our first stop. The staff were so friendly that they alone made the hotel great. Our room was also very nice and comfortable. We loved sitting on the lofted second floor and sharing a bottle of wine at nights over a great... More

The hotel is delightfully decorated making it a very homely and warm stay. The room is spread over two floors with the living area, the bathroom and the kitchen on the ground floor, while the bedroom is on the second floor. It really has a 'designer' feel to it, and we felt like we are living in one of those... More
