The only thing beautiful in the hotel is the view. I have no idea how come this have 4 stars!!! Really. It's totally old and very bad taking care. The walls in the room are dirty. Even my son saw it. They have an old carpet also that you can see dirty again. The installation are old and not taking... More

This 4stars hotel has a great view and a very good transfer service from and to the city center (which is 10minutes driving). Also the Spa is a plus: after excursions on glaciers is a pleasure to have a swim in the pool or a run in the gym. Nevertheless, some details just do not square with the price and... More

I traveled with my boyfriend, my brother and his girlfriend. When we arrived to the hotel we didn't have any idea about the excursions or attractions in the area (of course, we knew we were there to see the the Perito Moreno Glacier but we didn't have anything booked yet), but the staff helped us immediately to find something for...

First things first, this hotel has a nice history. Originally started by Sheraton, they pulled out after the foundation was built and Cristina Kirschner, then the first lady and now President of Argentina stepped in and bought it. So you can truly say this is Cristina's Hotel. Which is why, when you first enter your room, you are a bit... More

My wife and I liked this hotel for the views but not so much with our stay. The service was great and the restaurant has good food but we weren't impressed with the room and we were sweating all of the time inside the hotel. Even with opening the window in our room, the wind was too strong to leave... More

The view was unbeatable, but the rooms are not very comfortable. We stayed here three nights and each night slept worse than one before. The sun came in the room and it would get so hot and stuffy. If you opened the windows the wind was blowing to so hard you couldn't leave them open. Whe it was calm a... More

The staff at this hotel are in need of training. With only one exception (a very sweet bellboy), every person we dealt with was shockingly unfriendly, unhelpful and some almost rude. The first room we were given was very small and depressingly dark. We immediately went back to reception to ask to be changed. We were told we would have... More

Pros: English speaking, polite staff, good in restaraunt dining though it is cheaper to eat out, small gym, better than the pictures look, spa available. They will pack you a lunch for about $13-$15 if you go on the perito merino glacier day trip. Cons: shuttle back from town center never came back to pick us up but we were... More

stayed here for four nights in late November (just before high season starts). Possibly the most important thing is that the hotel is about five-ten minutes’ drive outside the town centre and it’s not really walkable. The hotel runs a free shuttle which is mainly hourly, with a few gaps presumably when the driver is taking his break and taxis... More
