It warrants a 'good' score, not very good but they don't have a 'good' button. My girlfriend and I struggled with rating this place. This is why. It was built shoddily. The hotel was constructed to a budget price and there are SO many obvious areas of short cuts - loose tiles, crooked light fittings, bad plumbing. The owners clearly... More

Nice finishes. Shuttle to town. Great pool. Buffet breakfast. Nice triple arrangement with separate room for our adult son. For the price, shuttle should run every hour - taxis are available. Upscale interior with sleek contemporary design. If you don't mind not being abke to walk to dining and shopping in town, would be fine.

This hotel has an attitude and most of the employees treat the guests like they are lucky to be there. Extremely slow by American standards and resentful when you ask for the basic items. Nice rooms and breakfast. It's a pity they don't treat their guests more kindly. ALso the shuttle service is ridiculous and only operates every two hours... More

Hmmmm...by NO MEANS worth the price tag unless you have a penchant for scrambled eggs (boiled eggs are not available) and rice for breakfast washed down with cake and watery yoghurt, along with a gym that only opens for half the day stocked with equipment which looks like it was shipped across during the last days of the Soviet Union!...

We stayed here 4nights too many. Having come from the amazing llao llao to this was like black and white. Breakfast, usually decent anywhere you go was awful. Stale pastries (possibly the same ones left out for four days), runny tasteless scrambled eggs the only hot food option, fizzy over ripe fruit, fake orange juice and terrible coffee. Extra charge...

While the hotel was in a good location, I was a little disappointed at the condition of the room. The furniture and floor in the room was very dusty, the towels were stained and very thin and on two occasions in the restaurant I had to use chipped and cracked crockery. A couple of the staff were very friendly and... More

Very nice room, great amenities and friendly staff. Generous breakfast and although the hotel is not in the centre of Calafate it had a free transfer to the town every hour. The only comment I will make is that they did not have the rooms ready until 3pm and they made them late in the afternoon but the rest was... More

If visiting Argentina - a trip to El Calafate to see the Glaciers is one not to be missed. The Imago Hotel is an excellent base to experience the Glaciers and to enjoy the atmosphere of El Calafate. It's perfect location, friendly staff, excellent facilities are highly recommended.

Our flight back to BA got cancelled at 2am and Aerolineas ended up putting us up at this hotel for the day. Absolutely beautiful hotel with fantastic staff and amenities. Generous breakfast buffet, excellent room and service. Highly recommend this for high end travelers

after six weeks travelling through South America, this hotel gets the gong for the worst food and service. The hotel is well located looking over to Lake Argentino. The buildings are good and there is potential for a good place to stay. However, the rooms are not very well maintained and the breakfast buffet is the poorest I have experienced... More
