Spent a couple of days in El Calafate at the Esplendor & I was quite impressed. It's a big, stylish place but unlike chain hotels, the design of the rooms & public areas is very tasteful & with a touch of Patagonia, and the staff are friendly & helpful. It's fairly central; about 10 mins' walk to the main street... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Esplendor for two nights in May 2014. The rooms and public spaces were spacious and well-decorated, if a bit dim, but the beds were comfortable and it was hard to argue with the views. Some of the hotels in El Calafate are actually located pretty far from the downtown area, we learned,... More

We left the hotel with very mixed experiences. The design concepts are excellent, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the lake views are lovely. The lobby and other public areas are also attractive and welcoming. The walk to the main street of El Calafate is not far, although it's not via the most scenic parts of town. It would... More

I stayed at this hotel in the end of my stay in Argentina, and it was like a cherry on the top of the pie. I had a room on the third floor and with lake view, it was totally awesome. Even though i was told that this hotel is a little bit far from the central street, it totally... More

We spent 5 days there in February. We loved it! Yes, as was mentioned in some reviews, the hotel is on the hill, may be 8-10 minutes walk to the city center. But not too far!!! And you get beautiful view from the hotel. Stuff was excellent! Not all of them spoke English, but they were friendly and very helpful.... More

The hotel enjoys an elevated position three blocks south of the main street and convenient for the bus station. It is tastefully decorated throughout and the spacious lobby creates a very good impression. Bedrooms are similarly large, we had a top floor room with lovely views of the bay. Very comfortable bed and the bathroom is well equipped with good... More

This was not really our kind of place, to be honest.
