On arrival staff were unprepared and unwelcoming, no smiles and they didn't seem to have our reservation so go armed with your confirmation e-mail. We were not told the wifi code, the facilities available, the breakfast times or general rules...I don't know if she thought we just wanted to get into our room but it would have been nice to...

This was a lovely place to stay. It seems to have started out small and has been added to bit by bit so it can appear a little disjointed. But this place has a good location close to the main street, only 2 blocks from the main bus station, and an enormous back garden with many flowers, and places to... More

Hotel is very well located close to Main Street and bus station. Swimming pool, garden, play room and open areas are nice but not luxurious. If the heating is too high with sunny days just ask and they will turn it down. Hotel has a warm atmosphere and feeling, rooms are small. Hotel owners are kind and helpful.

The public spaces in this hotel are gorgeous which is why I think our room was so disappointing. It felt a little spartan by comparison. I did love the free tea / coffee and scones in the afternoon and the free wine in the evening. A nice touch. The people were helpful but sometimes a little direct. Very close to... More

Unfortunately, a lot of the comments I've read on tripadvisor are still true. It is near the center, that's convenient. The website is very promising but in contrast to reality. Here our findings: - small room with a terrible bed. We had to move the pillows to the foot end - continuous loud complex opera music in restaurant and at... More

The hotel itself looks charming, with old fashioned furniture, wooden floors and a 'secret' door in the library. It is also near the main street in a quiet location and the staff is friendly. Our room also was quaint but it also felt unclean: very old carpet with stains, broken tiles and lampshape in bathroom. The bathroom was outdated anyway,... More

I booked this hotel having looked at their website and naively not having read the trip advisor reviews. What a mistake and I am writing this to save others a poor experience. The hotel is dated (to the extreme), ugly and has poor decor. The wooden floors are noisy and wake you early as guests tread the corridors (probably trying... More

We were only here three nights, 2 and 1, in transit to/from Chalten - wish we'd put one of those days toward Chalten, generally, as it has Calafate beat hands down! Modest room with oldish furniture, dusty lamps. Thin towels, and why can't they have shower curtains that keep the water from flowing out onto the bathroom floor. The pool... More

Hotel la Loma is ideally located within walking distance of town. The room u had was spacious with plenty of hot water. If yr room is near front desk you will be woken up by heavy footed guests on the wooden floors! Breakfast was adequate and home made breads added a nice touch. The Internet connection here is worse than... More

We arrived at La Loma with prepaid rooms -- they required that. When we got into our rooms, they were freezing cold, and the man at the desk did not know whether the heat worked or not. The showers are hard to describe -- you go into the bathroom, close the door, and turn on the water. No separate area... More
