For the value we were happy with this hotel. The walk into town is pleasant 10 minute stroll so nice location. Rooms large and clean and safe. Nothing fancy but basic. The garden is soothing. Wifi excellent. Breakfast ok. Service friendly but disappointing - would not recommend to use them for trip planning. Fyi we got a taxi from here... More

Initially I was surprised when the airport bus took me to an area away from the town centre, but it turned out well. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the restaurant, shopping and banks area, but the bonus was being near the lagoon where there is a well kept nature reserve, with hundreds, if not thousands, of...

Had a nice stay at this property. The rooms in the next building are much larger than the ones in the main house. But rooms in general are small. The beds are firm and comfortable. Each twin bed is provided with two pillows to allow you to adjust as needed. The twin beds are a bit on the narrow side.... More

We were there for one night, it's good location for walking to to lake, but little bit far walk to the town center. Service is good and hotel is cozy with style. Breakfast is just OK. You can pay Pesos even you book in States by Dollars, Exchange rate is very compatible ( $1 = 12 Pesos)

"Downtown" Calafate (if there is any :-)) is a bit of a walk but the hosteria has a wonderful warm atmosphere. It is very welcoming and the food is nice as it is like eating at home which is a great change if you are on the road a while and eating out a lot! The rooms are nice, warm... More

Nice and efficient reception upon arrival, reasonable wifi, could be a bit stronger in terms of signal, cosy feel, upstairs the restaurant and breakfast room, small but clean room, good beds, decent breakfast. A little bit out of town, but wonderful views on the lake in return. They also do lunch boxes which were quite complete!

Nice place and nice people. Rooms are decent sized and very clean. Breakfast and diner are served in a beautiful restaurant. They offer free use of bicycles but ask people to give a fonation for that... a beautiful idea, because the donations go to the national park around here...

It's a nice, sweet, clean and comfy lodge, 10-15 mins walk to the main street where plenty of restaurants and shops are located. The city is safe. The staff are helpful and nice as well. Just a thing not that good is about the key. It is attached to a large wooden plate with a card. The card has to... More

It is a bit of a walk into town but an interesting one through a local neighbourhood which highlighted how the area is changing from small semi rural homesteads to more up market housing. The hotel is very comfortable and very hospitable. We had a spacious and very comfortable room in the annex to the main building-built out of corrugated... More

Thank You for the commentary. It's good to remind that the Hosteria is near the Laguna Nimez, an ecological reserve with migratory birds. For those who like nature, it's the ideal place to be. Just 5 minutes walking from the Bahia Redonda, where we can note, for example, flamingos, but also 5 minutes from the coast of tha Argentinan Lake,... More

this is a sweet B&B at the edge of the Nimez reserve in El Calafate. What makes this place so special is the front desk staff who are helpful in every way my husband and I have traveled the world and Lena and Alina were as helpful, if not more so than any other place we have ever been.
