On 4JAN I reserved a room online for 6 & 7JAN at $140 per night. I arrived at 14:30 on 6JAN and the price was $190. It wasn't worth it and it was not the quoted price. Told them I didn't want the room. They said 'read the contract'. Complained via E-mail to Booking.com After a number of E-mail exchanges... More

But the staff full of young people was very helpful and attentious. We could walk to town but would get a cab to come back, because of... More

For example, to pay the minitrekking excursion, we had to withdraw 900 pesos in downtown to booked it; - The food... More

I stayed here with my sister last year and whilst it is not on main drag it is only about a 10 minute walk downhill. You can always get a taxi back from El Calafate as you save a lot by staying here and it is a good value option if you can't do or feel too old /shy to... More

It does not provide transportation. So, you walk or ask the receptionist at the front desk to call a taxi. Cost 10 PESO one way. Rooms are... More

With a family of 4, I prepaid for a triple room for 3 nights. Upon arrival and having filled in the registration form, I was shown a room with a king size bed. Even though the price of the room was different from what I had paid, and that there was no way of fitting the family in, I was... More

My husband and I had an excellent time at Hosteria Lupama. It is small--only 12 guest rooms--but clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely pleasant and accomodating. Every morning we had a traditional Argentine breakfast and always shared a bottle of wine in the evening. We stayed over New Years Eve and were so surprised to be offered a very... More

Staying at Lupama was great!!. Its location is perfect for the magnificent view at the Argentino Lake and at the Calafate Mountain. Our room was very comfortable, the staff very polite and the owner very helpful when giving us tips for all the excursions. Breakfast was delicious with homemade bread and pastries. Highly recommended for everybody!!
