Lousy hotel, there is no internet, no air conditioning and the oldest box of the TV . You pay good money for rubbish. The breakfast is also lousy. Do not bother with this lousy unpleasant hotel. Even reading the reviews hardly anyone praises this hotel. My mistake was not reading the reviews before, such s pity as it really was... More

Positives: The views from the hotel are gorgeous, over Lake Argentina - just stunning. Clean and secure hotel. Negatives: Staff, were cold and didn't seem to enjoy their job at all. Packed lunch: don't bother spending the money on the packed lunches they offer, buy your own in location or from supermarket. Location: Far from town, 45 minute walk (and... More

I came here on our honeymoon and was'nt disappointed. The hotel boasts a fantastic view over the lake, has beautifully doctorate rooms and hosts one, if not the best restaurant in town. On the downside I can only mention two things: it's a bit far off the center so you'll need to get a taxi wherever you go. Plus, during... More

The view was incredible!!! The 2 person jacuzzi tub with view over lake with moonlight!! The room was very large and clean. The sinks where very modern in design, very pleasing to the eye but useless as sinks. The queen bed was 2 singles pushed together (with a gap in the middle). Pool and spa were wonderful. Reception were very... More

I've been staying at the Hotel Design Suites in El Calafate. Initially I was delighted with the view of the Argentine lake and mountains that can be seen from the restaurant. The hotel is new and modern design, the reception is willing. However, on entering our room we had great difficulty because the room has only a small window and... More

The good: Really lovely setting, about a mile and half from town; breathtaking views of the lake and hills. I wished I could have spent some quality time in that bar with a book, a cocktail and that view. Rooms were decently sized, beds comfortable; safe in room. Again, lovely view from our room. Breakfast was generous (the bacon as... More

We've stayed in this hotel on two different ocassions during our time in Patagonia. Both time I was completely satisfied. 1. Rooms are good. Bathrooms are modern and well equiped. The only thing that took me by surprise was an old TV, which didn't go well with a room at all. 2. Hotel staff was amazing! I've seen a couple... More

It was probably great when opened. Today it looks outdated. We had a junior suite, and the "king size bed" was made out of two twin mattresses, the jacuzzi on our bath never worked, the TV is so old you can hardly understand what comes out of the speakers. But the most important is that is totally understaffed, the food... More

I am not used to write reviews, especially bad ones, but this tme I felt that travellers need to be informed about this hotel. The first impression was good. The building seems new, the view from the lobby/bar/restaurant is amazing. Once in the room, I immediately went to the spa because I wanted to sweat in the sauna ... which... More
