the staff was wonderful and the breakfast was good. the rooms were a little small and very simple but they were clean and more then met our needs after long days hiking on the glaciers! Great location, about 2 blocks from the main street and also close to the laguna nimez nature preserve.

Hotel location is good. A couple blocks off the main drag, so quiet but very easy walk to town. Wifi was excellent. Breakfast decent. The staff is lovely, spoke English and were very attentive. The rooms are clean but basic. Good value for folks on a budget.

The hotel is located two blocks from the main street and the people on the reception desk was very attentive. The bed was wonderful, I had a good sleep on there. The wifi worked perfectly and with good speed. However, the hotel seems to be old and "tired"; it could receive an update. In fact it seems to have a... More

The plus is the location, comfortable clean rooms and breakfast buffet. There is not a view, but if you want to be close to the restaurants and shops this is better. The staff was very helpful and there was internet accessibility . The rooms are spartan, bathrooms tiny , but we didn't have a noise problem. We arranged prior to... More

A quite well located hotel but our room looked a little tired and the bathroom was very small. We were at the front which is on the coach and minibus route to other hotels. There was also a dog opposite that barked incessantly and sound travels between rooms quite easily. The staff were all very helpful and the restaurant food... More

For me, this was a wonderful place to begin my trip of viewing the amazing landscapes that have been "Sculpted" and "Painted". A lovely warm welcome. Very comfortable, clean room. No views, but plenty to explore so not much time spent inside.Good breakfast. Available internet. Go for it!

I spent 3 nights here in October and had no complaints other than being able to hear everything in the next room as is common in so many Argentine hotels. The room was clean, breakfast buffet was very good, internet access available from their computer or wi-fi. The front desk staff was helpful, especially Vicky. Had dinner in their restaurant... More

I'm so sorry to have to write that we did not find our room very nice at all. Room 8 overlooks the very small courtyard, so is very, very dark. The carpet has seen very much better days and I wouldn't walk barefoot in the room. The way the furniture are arranged in the room make it look very uncomfortable.... More

Stayed here in June. Room was small and quite dark. Bathroom was clean and water always hot and plentiful. There's a computer terminal in the corridor for general use, could also get free wi fi in the room. Breakfast was a buffet and lovely, plenty of choice and plenty of it. The location is very central, about a block or... More
