You could not find nicer staff in the entire village! Santiago, the front desk manager, went above and beyond any expectations you could have imagined. Shortly after arrival, due to kidney stone, it was necessary to go to the private hospital emergently! Santiago accompanied me, acted as my interpreter, gave me his cell phone for the night, and returned the... More

At first we absolutely got a WAUW feeling entering the hotel. The design, the look, the interiour, it feels warm, modern, yet trendy. We got a suite with the same feeling. So why 3*? Several things were dissapointing, for exempel, the temperature inside the hotel was much to high, (28' Celsius, o boy! It felt like a sauna) english spoken... More

Just a 5 minute walk from the center of the village. Very well decorated, rustic modern but with a few touches of local art. Standard rooms are a bit small but suites are very large. Breakfast buffet included. The bar has atmosphere. The food at the restaurant was good but not excellent. Service was very responsive but not proactive. Very... More

Nice comfortable hotel, wifi was slow, buffet breakfast was okay. Biggest drawback was the location, town centre was a 10 min walk downhill okay during day but not on a cold night. It would be nice if they had a shuttle service.

Upon entering this hotel and after staying at some questionable lodging in el calafate, I thought wow, this hotel is nice. It reminded me of a "W" hotel.The decor featured lots of glass, metal, shag type carpeting, antlers and oddly mushrooms (only in the rooms). This hotel is 3 stories. Our room was on the third floor- there was no... More

We stayed 3 nights here. Service was absolutely fine. The bar and restaurant staff were as you'd want them to be. The drawbacks included - 1) being a little bit out of the way (albeit only 500m), but you do get the sense that the money ran out in Argentina at the hotel boundaries 2) transient guests- everyone was using...

We had a lovely stay. We followed the recommendation of another reviewer who suggested asking for a room on the top floor. We did, and we enjoyed a very nice room with amazing views.
