The city of El Calafate is just something espetacular, beautiful and quiet, you can find everything of a charmming place. Good climate, fine restaurants, extraordinary wines and from there you can make a lot off interesting excursion, such as, minitrekking glacial Perito Moreno, glacial upsala and others. The glacial excursion is something especial. There are many hotels and hostels available... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights last month (April 2015). We generally travel budget and basic so was pleasantly surprised to enter a classy, luxurious looking hotel. It was booked by our tour operator and I guess they got a good deal, April being the shoulder season. The hotel was grand indeed. We loved the decor and... More

Hate to disagree with you Fernando D, but we had an awesome time at the hotel. The staff was super friendly, most gracious, the breakfast was more than adequate (I guess that´s because we like our eggs scrambled!! :) with all sorts of fresh baked cakes and treats, hams, cheeses, yogurts, cereals, fresh jams...and tasty, coffee which was plentiful and...

The hotel is well decorated and the rooms are large. But we found the rooms really hot (like other hotels in the area they don't have air conditioning). We had to sleep with the windows open but there was an unbelievable amount of outside noise (cars and stray dogs that barked throughout the night). That's not the hotel's fault and... More
