The suite I stayed has 2 storeys, the guest area and bathroom are downstairs and the bedroom is upstairs. That is neat. I had the windows open all the time to get fresh air. It is a cozy, homey hotel. The dining room is small but nicely decorated. It's nice to sit by the glass windows while sipping tea and... More

We arrived in El Calafate late in the night and I had no reservation. We picked the hotel without looking too much around. It was more that what we needed and a bit pricey, but it was in the center, the room was comfortable and the staff at the reception was very friendly. The breakfast was good too.

The hotel appeared to be perfect from the outside. The lobby is clean and ornate. The location really is ideal. BUUT. The rooms are tiny, ours smelled like mildew and the breakfast is awful. The smell of the rooms reminded me of a shower that never fully dried. We left our window open when we were out and about which... More

On first appearances this looked like a good hotel. However, I returned from dinner at about 10.30pm to find that my room was stiflingly hot and the radiator could not be turned off. I went down to reception and was met with a shrug suggesting that this is what the rooms were like, but given a promise that "the girl"... More

It's on a small street paralel to the main street of the city, like 100m. So the location was amazing and felt pretty safe. My window was pointing to the main street and I still could have very quiet nights. The room was clean enough to me. The Staff was very helpful and gave me very nice tips about the... More

The hotel is a bit dated, but the excellent staff services more than make it up. It is only one block from the main street, very convenient. Price is also very reasonable. My twin bed room was small but clean. The bathroom was European size, meaning rather tight, but clean and the towels are fresh and white as snow.

I was disappointed in my stay at the Quijote hotel for a variety of reasons . While the lobby is nice looking I think that is where most of my complimenting ends . My biggest issue is the bed situation . The hotel staff fully admit that the majority of rooms are 2 single beds. You can't combine them to... More

This hotel is old and needs a refurbishment. The curtain in the bathroom is not what one would expect... The medialunas bread etc are all more than 2 days old. The staff is very helpful and polite. We loved el calafate and the proposed activities on the glaciers, mountains etc. We will definitely go back but choose a different hotel!

We stayed here 3 nights while touring in the region. The room was very large, but dated furniture and two small beds. There is no minibar. That wasn't an issue for me, but might be for others. The staff have poor English and my Spanish is even worse so communications could be difficult, but we managed. It was unseasonably warm... More
