Flat screen tv in the double room 4. Good fruit selection at breakfast 5. Friendliest staff ever!!! 6. Laundry! But fresh... More

Stayed 4 nights at Posada El Barranco in the cabin for two in El Chalten. The cabins are exceptional. Super clean, well heated, excellent kitchen with everything you need to eat in. The location is excellent, one block off the main road, close to supermarkets, restaurants etc. The location is also very close to all the trails. This was my... More

I really enjoyed staying here because I had a room that was clean, comfortable and quiet. I could easily walk to the local restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful. After the 23km hike to Cerro Fitz Roy, you need this sort of place to relax!

Rooms were very modern, warm and clean. Positioned behind Main Street centre of town (2 minutes distance). Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Only negative was the breakfast. They serve you a few slices of toast and a piece of cake. No buffet continental breakfast that you can choose. Option of self service for orange juice and cereal but that's it.... More

What a little gem! My married daughter, and I reserved rooms here while visiting El Chalten to hike the Laguna de los Tres trail. The rooms and public areas are attractively and simply decorated. The morning complimentary continental breakfast was more impressive than many others that I've had, and the staff was most helpful. I was asked if there was... More

We stayed 2 nights at El Barranco. We were lucky that there was only one other guest when we were there because the walls are paper thin. The rooms are outfitted like a prison cell (no furniture except for the bed). The worse part was that the flat sheet covering the mattress was clearly too small for the size of... More

My wife and I tried to book the cabanas for 5 nights but first night was unavailable, so we stayed in hotel 1st night. Room very clean and shower very warm and welcoming. We moved to cabanas afterwards and it was very well equipped. Very warm, so much so my wife felt need to turn it down. Very rustic and... More

My husband and I stayed at El Barranco in March and were lucky enough to meet one of the owners, Sylvana. She gave us travel advice, tips on great restaurants and activities, and she even joined us for dinner and drinks during our time there. We did the Fitroy hike amongst others and fell in love with El Chalten. It... More

Posada El Barranco is a really nice place in El Chalten. Located in a small street, it is quiet but closed to restaurants and shops (everything is closed in El Chalten...). The hotel is really clean as well as the rooms which offer good comfort and good beds. Rooms are equipped with a safe. The bathroom are really good as... More

We booked the cabin for 360 pesos (3 people) but the heater did not work (due to the wind, we were told...). It was freezing cold the whole night and we all felt a bit sick in the morning. The front desk lady apologized and decided to move us to the main hotel (where the rooms are warm and beds... More
