A 20-25 minute walk from town centre which is made up for the fact that it is by a beautiful lake with wide open spaces. Free WiFi in rooms which are a bit cramped. Breakfast is limited. Staff is friendly and helpful.

My husband and I had an amazing experience in this beautiful hotel. We were not looking for a luxury place, instead, we just wanted a confortable and clean hotel in a peaceful and beautiful surrounding, with nice people to welcome us. In all these things Cauquenes went beyond our expectations! The breakfast was delicious, as well as the 5pm tea... More

When we arrived at this hotel, I thought perhaps the driver had made an error. It appeared to be out in the country with lots of horses and dogs and even a baby guanaco tethered on someone's lawn. But no, he assured us this was the right place. It turned out to be not only the right place but probably... More

The area around the hotel is fantastic. You can see plenty of birds and the mighty flamingos are there too. The staff is excellent. We spend there three nights. Good restaurants you can reach within some minutes of walk (1,5km) , but who cares?

Very nice Hotel, located in a quiet area. The staff is excellent. Nice rooms with good views. Good breakfast and we regret that we did not take dinner here. The Hotel has a very nice garden where you can relax with a good view.

Cauquenes de Nimez is situated just outside the little city El Calafate, very close to the shore of the lake. In the restaurant you can enjoy a beautiful view with stunning sunlight enjoying great and honest food accomanied with a fine selection of Argentianian wines. If you like bird watching or photography go to the bird reserve, five minutes from... More

Excellent hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. Prompt airport pickup, arranged two fantastic dinners (one at the hotel). 12 minutes walk to downtown El Calfate, close to reserve, free bikes for guests. Quiet spot, very nice and clean rooms - would return in a heartbeat! Owners really made us feel at home! Free wi-fi, comfortable sitting areas, wine, tea, etc all... More

This has been the perfect location for me in El Calafate. The rooms are clean, more than comfortable with lovely decorative touches. It has felt like staying in a dear friend's home. Nothing has been too much trouble, the staff all charming and the evening meals - delicious and beautifully presented. Wifi has been great and the short walk to... More

If you like to be away from the main touristy area and close to a nature preserve, then you may love this small hotel. We certainly did. We walked to the close-by Laguna Nimez Bird Reserve and really enjoyed the large and carefully planned sanctuary. The entrance fee was 70AR$. We also had a rental car which helped in transportation... More

We do not understand the rave reviews of this hotel: for us it was the only negative experience of our stay in Argentina. We have unfortunately spent 2 nights. We arrived on Christmas Eve on 24. We booked the special Christmas dinner at the hotel, for a fee of 850 pesos per person. Exorbitant sum compared to the dishes presented,... More
