The room and service are excellent. Really exceeded my expectations. Great breakfast too. It is a bit far from the city center, and they only have transfer (every 30 min) from 5 pm on. This happens cause during the day everyone is away taking the obligatory tours in Calafate. Still, it is a nice mile and a half walk near... More

The overall rating this hotel should receive excellent except for the restaurant. We ordered an onion soup with a few slices of onion swimming in a strange broth. It is is not horrible but strange. The next dish was the noodle with strange herbs. Oh my God the noodle was so hard and very broad and thick. It was decorated... More

We were on a conducted group tour from India and had stayed here for 2-nights in October, 2014. Our room on the upper floor facing the lake was nice, clean and comfortable. The hotel being small is quite and has a cosy feel to it. There was free internet available. The breakfast which was complimentary had variety and was good.... More

The hotel itself is beautiful and its surrounding are even more stunning, and this should be expected from the price it charges. The two rooms I stayed were both excellent. The restaurant was very nice, too, with excellent food for both breakfast and dinner. However, this hotel is located quite far from the city center, and it's quite a walk... More

This is a small hotel on the outskirts of El Calafate. The staff is very nice and tries to be helpful. However every request apparently goes to their central office in buenos aires. The Internet is basically not existing even in their business center. The only place with a stable signal is in the business center itself and veeeeeerrrrrryyyyy sssssslllllooooowwwwwww.... More

Very good hotel. Hotel staff gives you good attention in everything you need. Hotel is a bit far from downtown, but hotel have a very convenient and free transfer server to cover that distance. They have a bar and a restaurant inside the hotel, very convenient. All hotel areas are very well cleaned. They have to fix the Internet service,... More

The Rochester is located out if town although it is peaceful and they do have a regular bus route to town it wasnt a problem. This hotel is very formal. We haven't found it warm and welcoming at all. The rooms are far too warm and we had to call staff in to turn the heating down. Our children (ages... More

I booked a room there online, showed up there on the right day and they did not have my booking. I could not speak Spanish very well and the receptionist could not speak any English. She was rude. A passerby translated for us and said that the hotel had booked the wrong dates so that the day I arrived was... More

We got a cheap rate here and were really happy with our experience. The reception area and restaurant are very tastefully decorated, the room was a little basic but clean and had everything we needed. The hotel is not in the center, but has a reliable half-hourly shuttle service to town from the late afternoon. It is not that far,... More

We stayed 3 nights. Strange that we had to pay our stay upon arrival (with a final balance for extras) but the price is convenient. The hotel is very nice and the view of the lake is great. The heating was a bit too high and there was no way to reduce it. The personnel was very nice but somebody... More
