We stayed here two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the heat worked well. Internet was rather pretty fast and consistent. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the breakfast was pretty decent.

We stayed at Kau Kaleshen for three nights and we don't think we could bare the thought of staying there for another second. Where to begin... The Room - Nothing good to say here. You are welcomed by a putrid smell that is a mixture of gas fumes and a bad potpourri. Opening the bathroom window and the main door... More

Reading through all the reviews to see if we are only ones with a bad feeling about this hotel, the excuse off staff having a bad day wears thin when you read it more than once. The hotel Kau Kaleshen in El Calafate was a huge disappointment. The hotel is run by people who made us feel being in a... More

Good hotel, friendly staff and good restaurant (particularly for vegetarians). Rooms around patio garden. Close to main street, neverheless quite place. Free parking in front of hotel. Good place to start your trip to the Perito Moreno glacier.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and the staff at the desk is really helpfull and always prepared to help/advice or make a call. The rooms are nice and clean, but not that big. The attached restaurant is also really great and worth it to eat atleast once!

Also you can easiliy walk to the laguna nimez from here, which is a lovely place to visit too. We really liked the room, we... More

Small, charming, everything made with love and detail, comfortable beds and very very quite. Decoration is fine and rustic. I would stay there for dinner/lunch since the area has a lot to offer, but accommodation is excellent

First, El Calafate is a tourist town created to service visitors to Perito Moreno Glacier and park area. It has one main street lined with tourist shops, restaurants and travel agencies. Kau Kaleshan is one street parallel to the main street and is quiet and a good choice. Front desk staff was wonderful and very helpful. Rooms are basic but... More

I stayed here for three nights over six days (another two nights in el Chalten), booked through Say HueQue tours in BA. Location of the Hotel a couple of blocks off the main drag, and with all the rooms facing an open interior courtyard/garden, the rooms were very quiet. The room I had was dated, dark and the bathroom needed... More
