This Pousada has the best homemade jams, bread and cake for breakfast, fantastic hosts, and the best sleep we've had in months! The location is a 10-15 min walk to the centre of town but it isn't far at all and totally worth it because it is so quiet! The dinners we had were spectacular and reasonably priced, and the... More

The owners manage the place and although it's not right by the centre, they offer home made delicious food for dinner. Breakfast is delicious too! I really enjoyed my stay there and would certainly go back

Federico and Claudia are excellent hosts. They help us when we wanted to book a tour, visit an estancia, to rent a car and even when we wanted to eat since they cooked wonderful rabbit and lamb stews. We will be back, Grazie, arrividerci Federico!! Gilles

My wife and I stayed there for one night and it was very comfortable. It was a busy day for us in El Calafate but the managing couple were very nice and comforting. We just came back from the glacier and had to go to our dinner reservation right away. The couple took our luggage and put them in our... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with our (almost) one year old. I have NEVER had such a lovely warm experience. Claudia and Federico were absolutely wonderful. They organised our excursions and taxis for us and were so kind with our baby. Everything was just great! We also ended up eating dinner there every night and the food was excellent.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night in March, and had an enjoyable stay. We had a slightly rocky start when the owner didn't have all the details from our booking, but once the issue was resolved we were shown to a lovely double room overlooking the garden. The room and bathroom were pretty much hotel standard, and... More

Good welcome and very helpful advice from English-speaking couple who own Karut Josh. Rooms are fairly basic but with good bathrooms and heating. Excellent breakfast with home baking, etc.. Quiet location.
