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

When we checked in we were told we were upgraded to a larger room. It was awesome! The room was huge and pretty. We loved it! I thought it was gorgeous, I prefer fancier hotels so this was perfect for us. The guy who checked us in was helpful. He let us order a boxed lunch even though it was... 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. It's very comfortable, if a bit remote at the top of the hill overlooking the town and lake, and it's hard to find anything to actually complain about (although we did get stuck in the lift on arrival, and chose not to eat in the restaurant as it was...

Nice hotel with friendly staff and good location near main street. The spa is a good thing to have after a long day of adventure & trekking. However, the mattress is too soft, and the room does not have AC which makes our sleep uncomfoetable. Even in summertime the nights get quite chilly so we have to close the windows... More
