This hotel is about 40 minutes' walk from the town centre but we loved its location. The views across Lago Argentino from our hotel window were fabulous and the 30 to 40 minute stroll along the edge of the lake with amazing views and incredible bird life takes you into town. The food at the Koi Aiken was lovely and... More

The hosteria has a reasonable price, very good for young travellers. Good points: - Good breakfast - Welcome drink - Available cafeteria and bar - Bathtub - Views of good landscapes just through the windows! Yay! - High skilled and considerate staff Bad points: - Far, so far away... To go to the glaciarum museum: 100ARS Round trip to town:... More

This is the best place ever among all the hotels I stayed at in South America over the past months. The staffs are very friendly and accommodating. Lovely dinner, nice breakfast, cute m clean room, borderless view of lake Argentino. I can't think of any negatives. I m rating my all Calafate trip as 10/10 as koi Aiken plays a... More

About 30-40 minutes out of town. The rooms were clean but in need of some maintenance, the bathroom window fell off the hinges. The bed was comfortable but overall the whole place looks a little tired. Reception staff were helpful and friendly. The packed meal we ordered was excellent providing a salad with various dressings, an apple, a meat filled... More

The room was nice and clean, Comfortable bed, but the water pressure was non existent, barely a trickle came out of the shower. Could have used two big towels instead of just one, since i have long hair and i'd like to be able to wrap it up after a shower The there's no internet in the rooms, only in... More

Thumbs up: Excellent breakfast!!! Room's size is OK, mattresses are pretty good. Sauna is great but you must pay about 8 US$ to use it! Thumbs down: The hotel is located "in the middle of nowhere" about 3 mi/4.5 kms from town. There's no means to get into town except taxi. The restaurant is not worth much, the dishes seem... More

We arrived on Christmas day 2013 & stayed 2 nights, the whole place needs an overhaul, the hotel is old and tired. The rooms incl. bathrooms, reception area, bar & restaurant are old and dark. Not sure what the other reviews meant by the breakfast are great as the breakfast is basically all sugar - being cakes, sweet liquid yoghurts,... More

A bit out of town, but an amazing view from the bedrooms we had. The hotel is in need of some renovations,especially the bathrooms...however it was very warm and comfortable and great, helpful staff. Good buffet breakfast and because of location, we ate in the dining room every night (3) The food was excellent and not overpriced. A pity there... More

Stayed here in February only one night. Hotel is right by the beach. In El Calafate you don`t have many choices. But the hotel interior was beatiful, the bar was nice, food was excellent anf the service ok. Rooms were clean and normal. The hotel lobby was really something. worth the stay if you drop there.

We stayed here for two nights towards the end of our tour of Patagonia. All arrangements were made through our guide service. The room we were given was large with a king bed, view of the lake, clean and plenty of hot water (really what more do you need). We arrived late in the evening from El Chaten and ate... More
