We had the good fortune to have wonderful weather and a room with a stunning view. The room was quite spacious and fine for our needs. The bus to the town was efficient and we ate quite well in the restaurant. Breakfast was fine, but far from the best we had in our three week stay in Argentina. The spa,... More

The hotel itself is pretty nice. The lobby is very nice with wood and a home hearth type fireplace and nice big leather couches. The restaurant had the best food we ate in two trips to El Calafate. The hotel rooms were like a nice Motel 6 - but they had great showers. Great view. Fun little pool. Good shuttle... More

This is a newish hotel offering good but not great facilities. It is a couple of miles outside the town, but that is not a problem if you use the shuttle service.

The hotel was really nice, quiet, quaint, clean, and comfortable. The staff was really helpful and accomodating (Front desk greeter, Belen & the Bellhop, Juan Manuel were GREAT!). I only wish they would have changed our room so that we could've gotten some wind. The transportation to and from the hotel was very convenient so we didn't need to rent... More

MY wife and I stayed at Alto Calafate for three nights in December 2013. THe hotel is very nice but a little isolated. The only way to town is on a hotel shuttle bus that runs every hour. That said, the rooms are clean, the staff helpful and the restaurant is very good..

Alto Calafate is a pretty structure when you approach it. It's right on top of a hill that overlooks the centre which is just a 10 minute ride. It thankfully provides an hourly shuttle that you need to pre book, in and back from the centre. Our room was initially set up as twin beds so we asked them to... More

The hotel has very good facilities, rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff was not very friendly but they were ok. The main disadvantage is that the hotel is 2 - 3 km distant from the centre and restaurants, so we need to depend on the shuttle service that runs from 10am to 11:30pm. Restaurant is ok, but do...
