The hotel's absolutely fine. A little bit soulless, which is odd given the effort they've gone to with the decor. Decent sized room with nice bathroom. The pool and sauna area is nice. Location is fine. It's about 10-15 minutes from the town centre, albeit we only walked down there once. There's not a lot to El Calafate apart from... More

The design elements are the most stylish we've seen in Patagonia. The rustic wood tables, soaring ceilings, and nods to rustic Patagonian style create quite a first impression. Nowhere in Patagonia has true luxury hotel concierage style service, but the staff here is friendly and very helpful with booking excursions and private taxi service. There is hiking directly behind the... More

The front desk team, especially Rodrigo, were awesome in helping us make reservations, find places to change money, and make our stay in El Calafate enjoyable.
