Very nice, quiet, and peaceful place to stay in El Calafate. It's very close to Laguna Nimez, hence the name of the place, and it only a 10 minute walk to the center of town. Our room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The service here is wonderful, and the people that work there are extremely friendly and go out... More

The hotel is at the quiet periphery of El Calafate, close to the lake. It is a beautiful house, furnished with much love and attention to detail, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We highly recommend it.

Nice hotel, big room but we could hear every step from the neighbors in the room above. Breakfast was average. The hotel does have a small fenced yard to play in for the kids. Good wifi. Friendly staff. There is a small park just outside to take a walk but it requires an entrance fee.

So glad that I chose this lodge for my four nights in El Calafate. The room I had was very spacious and beautiful. The bed most comfortable, the bathroom spacious and the view from my windows overlooking the nature preserve and nearby homes and green space. The breakfasts were generous and nourishing and the hotel staff very helpful and friendly.... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel. It is located somewhat outside El Calefate ( appr 15 minutes walking to the center) near Lago Argentino. The rooms are ok, the breakfast is good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only disturbing thing we experienced is that in the morning it can be very noisy due to the... More

I stayed at Cauquenes de Nimez this December while travelling through Patagonia. I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel to anyone staying in El Calafate. The Pros: -Homely: The hotel is lovely with wooden floors and colorful decoration. There are less than 15 rooms so it really feels small and cozy. We were always received by Lina, one of the owners,... More

This charming hotel is located close to the Argentino lake bay and next to a wildlife reserve. Rooms are spacious and clean. We stayed in the annexed building, with a view to a lovely garden. The only issue is that the rooms have carpet flooring, probably not optimal for people with dust allergies. Breakfast is good and the hotel provides... More

It is a small, cute and cozy hosteria located 10min walking from El Calafate centre and 5min from a flamingos' reserve in Lago Argentino. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The breakfast basic but nice. The dinner was also very nice at a reasonable price! The hotel also gives the option (at an extra charge) of providing its guests... More

My husband and I were really disappointed with this hotel. We were woken at 7:30am each morning with the cleaners vacuuming the rooms,and by reception speaking loudly-there was no consideration for guests. We had booked for 3 nights,but due to our flights changing,we had to leave at 5pm on our third night. The hotel had the audacity to expect us... More
