This hotel was located only two blocks from the main street which made access the small town great. It was very clean and the staff at the hotel were very kind and accommodating and spoke perfect English. If I were forced to pick one thing I didn't like I would say the eggs at breakfast were runny and I didn't... More

We stayed here as part of our Imagine Latin America holiday. From the majority of the reviews we were expecting great things. Staff were not welcoming on arrival at all. The breakfasts were disgusting. We had breakfast out after the first morning. There was no hot water one morning as well although I think that was a mains problem, but... More

The most quaint and desirable place to stay in Calafate. From the moment you enter the lobby, you are transported to an alpine/Patagonian retreat. Service impeccable, decor and rooms superb, breakfast beyond expectation - the muesli and freshly baked facturas are a must and wonderfully brewed coffee. Thank you to all the staff at Kosten Aike, cannot say enough about... More

From the moment we entered the hotel we were made welcome by the warmth of the staff and their attention. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was simple with a good choice of cereals, breads, pastries and a hot food option. We were out on tours most days and took the packed lunch option... More

The hotel is centrally located, we could walk to everywhere, even when it was rainy and windy. The hotel lobby had a nice welcoming aroma to it. The top floor has a small gym and an cabin like Jacuzzi that has nice city view to it. The service was hit and miss, the front desk was not too friendly, however,... More

The Hotel Kosten Aike is centrally situated in the picturesque small town of El Calafate; But, yet in a quiet area within a 5 minute walk to all restaurants and shops. The hotel has a homely feeling, breakfast is excellent, rooms very comfortable and the Hotel Staff, especially those at the Reception Desk, are very helpful and freindly. I strongly... More

Well run hotel two blocks from the main downtown area, don't forget this is a small seasonal tourist town. Walk to shopping, restaurants. They gave us a spacious room with a separate foyer and sitting area, perfect for using as a base to explore the area. They serve a hearty full breakfast buffet and they do have a pool and... More
