Truly an amazing stay. I studied abroad in Buenos Aires during the fall of 2013 and went on several trips throughout Argentina while I was there. Staying at La Cantera made this trip stand out for me. My mother came to visit me for this particular trip and we were so unsure of how to go about planning everything. My... More

This hotel has a very nice staff and is clean. There is a rustic charm to it, the rooms are a bit older, but the bathrooms are modern and clean. We stayed here over Christmas, and the only disappointing thing was that the Christmas dinner was over $100 Prixe Fixe for the meal. While I am a huge foodie, and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Cantera. The reception staff, Carolina behind the bar, and the chef (Augustine?) were so very friendly and are great representatives of this hotel. The general feel of the hotel is rustic, which fits the setting well. The views from the lake view bedrooms and lobby were incredible, overlooking Lake Argentino. Our bedroom was... More

The immediate vicinity of this hotel is not very elegant. However, the view from the lobby is stunning. The staff are very welcoming and during our 3 night stay they were exceptionally helpful at all times. The breakfast was adequate but the big plus factor for this hotel was the restaurant. It is not fancy but the food was some... More

The staff and service in this hotel are first rate. Very friendly and attentive staff, plus the drinks prepared in the lounge by Carolina are great. They help you on choosing what to do and see in the Glacier National Park and the other local attractions. If you don't want to walk the 5 blocks between the hotel and the... More

...and if the rooms had been better soundproofed this would have been excellent. The staff were very good, providing advice on local restaurants for which there is a free shuttle service.

This hotel is a short walk to town but far enough above it to be quiet and peaceful. The common areas are perfect for meeting fellow travelers or finding a private corner if you would rather. Breakfast was included and offered excellent selection. Our room was very nice with king bed and a view of the lake. Manuel at the... More

We stayed here on one end of a trip to El Chlaten. If we hadn't already booked a different hotel for the other end of the trip we definitely would have come back here. It is an easy walk to town. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the dinner was one of the best meals I had in... More
