Overall service and attitude of this establishment was exceptionally poor. Location is good. Quite old, but acceptable. Hotel completely empty, bad smells permeated the rooms, no allowance for a late checkout, poor breakfasts, staff barely able to speak English. Not advisable!!!! 1 star no more.

In the room the tv is next to the beds. If you want to see tv from the bed you can't. It's not 4 stars, at least 3. You don't have any restaurant at the hotel and the breakfast is poor. The people from the hotel is really kind. The bedrooms are comfortable but the tv is really old and... More

Well, the Quijote looks pretty nice and is in a very good location, close to the main street in El Calafate. Our room was nice and spacious, clean, comfortable. Because my husband had been pick-pocketed in Buenos Aires, we were extra careful to lock up ALL our valuables in the safe in our room. Unfortunately, the safe malfunctioned and would... More

My husband and I stayed at Quijote twice for two nights each, a week apart. Our first impression was great - the lobby is a standout. It's cozy, spacious, has a bar, and nicely decorated. Has public internet which works decently. Our room the first stay was disappointing. It was on the first room and left of the checkin desk.... More

We stayed at the Quijote Hotel in December 2013 while on a NatGeo adventure, a 2 week hike in Patagonia. This was the hotel of choice in El Calafate. It is a good hotel with a helpful staff. It is close to restaurants and the main street. The breakfast is solid which is helpful when doing a lot of hiking.... More

My wife and I had high hopes when we arrived at the Quijote Hotel. It is well located being only one block off the main street. The front entrance is quite nice as well as the grounds. However, slowly our opinion of the place decreased to the point where I would definitely not recommend this place to a friend. This... More

Although this hotel is certainly well located, near to the Main Street....the room we got fell well short if that advertised on their website.....small, dark and rather dingy where I could clearly make out every word.... That the couple next door were saying....

We had booked Las Cabanitas, but decided not to stay after seeing the very basic room they offered. The Quijote was closer to the main street and, although more expensive, we felt was worth it. The room and service were very good. A couple of small niggles - the TV was old and with very limited channels and, as told... More

Huge and garish, the lobby of the El Quijote Hotel in El Calafate feels like a set from a 1970s movie. Somehow, however, it just works. The rooms are dated as well (only twin beds), but they're quiet and located far enough away from the lobby to give you a feeling of privacy. The beds were comfortable. The Internet is... More
