La Guanaca is situated close to the entrance of the city, close to bus station. Also you have a nice view on Fitz Roy when there are no clouds. And family who runs a place is just amazing! They are always eager to help you to find solutions for any situation. A perfect place! Totally recommended!!!

Lovely hosts, great location. Stayed for 6 nights, one night in a double with private bath and the remainder in a room with 4 twin beds and private bath. Both rooms were very nice, tastefully decorated, clean and cozy. The room with the twin beds had so much room for the two of us, that we opted to stay in... More

This place was just what we needed. Nice and warm rooms, good service, bathroom with warm water, very very nice owner, kitchen. We stayed longer than we thought. The owner was really flexible and did not charge us for the nights we went for 2-day hikes. She also changes money and is ready to help with organizing your trip. Would... More

Really nice room, warm and comfortable behind a simple frontage. Friendly welcome. Cheaper than most of the others. Clean bathroom with hot water. Small but useful kitchen. Good breakfast with medialuna. Well situated in the middle of the city

Room was large with a good shower. Location was in the town of El Chalten not too far from the bus station, centrally... More

Comfortable mattress, warm bedroom, hot shower, cosy kitchen, awesome view, cool owners with expertise in trekking, climbing, cooking and any local activity you might ever want to do. All you need after a hard day of trekking in Chaltén. Qualification, five grinning faces: =D=D=D=D=D

This was a very random booking as I decided to spend 3 days trekking in El Chalten the night before arriving. It turned out to be the most welcoming place I stayed at in Argentina. La Guanaca is a small family lodge with 5 rooms, owned by couple Marcelo and Victoria who moved away from the hustle of Buenos Aires... More

The hotel room was small, but cozy. Victoria, the hostess, put her heart in the decoration. The dark green wall, light orange pillows, and smoke grey quilts. When I first enter the room the heating was warm enough to chase away the cold outside. Clean towels, wooden side table... I fell in love with it immediately. There is a small... More

My husband and I got some much-needed rest here after a long day of travel. The husband-wife team who runs Guanaca were very friendly and welcoming -- some of the nicest people we've met in the country. The rooms are not fancy, but everything was clean and our room (#2) had a unexpected view of Fitz Roy. The shared kitchenette... More
