    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.

    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.

    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.
