We stayed here for three nights. The owner was extremely helpful in organising day trips and helping with our flight back (which was cancelled). The rooms are simple, with good heating and very comfortable beds. There is only a small breakfast, no other meals served. You can use the dining area to eat your own food, and they will keep...

Very good value for money, very nice, attentive and helpful staff. Super clean rooms. The lady in charge helped us with all the tours/tour companies and was super nice and patient about it. Only downside, it is not super close from the city center; about a 25mn walk. But if you're not staying too long, it's definitely worth it. Definitely... More

I wish I could write a glowing review of this place because the staff was amazingly warm, helpful and kind. The rooms are quaint with heated floors, soft king size beds and nice views. The location is ok. It's about a 15 minute walk from town (on pretty dry and dusty roads): close enough to walk but just far enough... More

Spacious rooms, clean, good breakfast with excellent croissants, and very, very friendly and helpful owners. The rooms were warm and well isolated, not bad when the Patagonia wind blows outside at 50 km/hr. we would suggest this place to anyone.

This hotel is a new, very beautiful building, but it has two killer problems: 1. It's fairly distant from town down a long, dirty road with a decent hill that you can't walk without being enshrouded in dirt clouds. And 2. The hotel is complete with beautiful tile floors in all the rooms and hallways, which are as decorative as... More

The hotel itself is fairly basic, but it's clean, the rooms are large, and the bathroom was fine. The tv service was good- I got to watch Monday Night Football in Spanish! The breakfast was pretty good, but breakfast is never really good in Argentina as I understand it... coffee (good), tea, croissants/medialunas, oranges, cornflakes, yogurt, and Tang (which seems...

I loved the lake view from the room and during the breakfast time. The owners were very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay there even better.

We stayed at Glaciares de la Patagonia for 2 nights and found it very friendly, clean and quiet. The owners were very helpful with providing information. It's a bit out of town, that's true, but we had a car, so this was no issue. We had a king size bed and there was even a view of Lago Argentino. Breakfast... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hosteria. It is a little out of town but still in easy walking distance to the city (15min max). If you can't stand the dusty roads, a taxi into the centre will only set you back AR$8. The rooms are generously sized and clean and the water pressure is excellent. We did miss... More
