Perfectly comfortable for one night while en route to somewhere else. Kind of expensive for what it is at AR480 for a double. Rooms were clean and comfortable enough. Shower was hot. Breakfast was basic but good. Wifi only in lobby. Reception staff friendly enough. Other hotel staff not so much. Suggest you ask for room away from reception area... More

We choose this hotel based on the positive review we read in our guidebook, which described it as having won many service awards as well as providing good value in a town where the options are overpriced. The value aspect may be correct (we didn't check prices elsewhere), but we weren't particularly impressed with the service or the hotel itself.... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Ushuaia. Simple basic clean hotel for a good price. I would probably not spend days here but we took a bus from el calafate and needed a hotel for one night on our way to Ushuaia, the bus recommended this hotel. Arriving at 11 pm and leaving the next day... More

We like this hotel because of the nice lobby and good service. Our double room was very cozy and clean. The staff at the reception was polite and helpful. I got sick and the women at reception called the doctor which appeared in 5 minutes and did not charge me for the visit! This hotel is really one of the... More

This is an ok hotel with a clean and bright reception and quite basic but clean rooms. It wasn't anything special, but after having paid a lot more for a hostel with a shared bathroom in Ushuaia, we were happy with it. The breakfast was toasts and croissant, orange ' squash' and hot drinks, and was served very promptly. The... More

I needed a place in Rio Gallegos for my family to spend a night. The guidebooks tend to recommend this hotel but, as you can see below, the tripadvisor reviewers tend to be unimpressed. But unable to find an affordable alternative, I decided to pick the Sehuen after they offered me a rate under US$100 for a family room. Reports... More

The rooms were so small, we could not even open one suitcase. Staff was not very helpful, place left a filthy impression on us. While the hotel was quite busy during our stay (the former President and husband of the current Argentinian President was burried in town that day) it was very noisy most of the night. Impression was more... More

This hotel is quite poor. The beds are outdated and not that clean. Bathrooms superficially sanitized. I stayed there to avoid the other hotel in town recently opened with money fropm politicians, but it really does not offer any service or amenities.

The hotel is fine for stopping a night going/coming Tierra del Fuego. The rooms are reasonable sized and clean with private bath. The people are very helpful and friendly. Location is close to city center/Airport. Breakfast was pretty boring which can be missed. Compared to other hotel in town its a good option. Hotel prices are in general quiet high.... More
