The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, and it was a very quiet hotel in a good location close to the trails and a bit away from the busy part of town. The shampoo and conditioner came in small packets, like large ketchup packets, which were really hard to open but otherwise fine. The water pressure was amazing... More

We originally had booked Rancho Grande - the next door hostel for our first part of our stay in Chalten, but since the Internet is so terrible, they had not received our reservation from Booking (this happened to us twice in Chalten, it may happen to you). However, the owner of Poincenot and the hostel are one and the same,... More

This is a very comfy hotel with a staff that always have a big smile for you, it was our first time in La Patagonia and the hotel definitively helped to make a one of a kind vacation, hotel location is great to be in touch with the nature sourroundings. I would definitvely come back.

Our visit was sadly a bit disappointing. The staff weren't helpful or friendly especially those doing the breakfast. The room was clean and the bed was comfy however. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. A bit more work and attention to detail then this place could be good

We came to the hotel expecting a stay in one of the best placrs in El chalten where we can be pampered after long day hikes. The hotel's infrastructure is good, the lobby is beautiful and the front desk personnel are nice and have great English. However, during our stay there were few problems you would not expect to find... More

Overall, a good stay at the Poincenot. The rooms are nice (comfy bed). However, the first room we had smelt of smoke from the previous stay (we were promptly moved to another room) and the wifi was unreliable to a point where it wasnt even worth trying. That said, given where you are, its somewhat expected. Good stay in a... More

I liked this hotel it was well placed for both the Laguna torre and Laguna tres trails, good restaurants and supermarkets close by and the staff were freindly and very helpful. The rooms were clean and the breakfast plentiful. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and fully recommend at least three nights in E Chalten. As others say the... More

The Poincenot, a relatively new hotel, is well located within easy reach of most of El Chaltén's shops and restaurants (those who have been to El Chaltén will now what this means!). It's main desk is manned 24 hours a day, and English is understood. Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are spacious with a separate bathroom with bath, shower... More

Been there at January 2015, it was a very convenient stay. It is located at the northern end of the town and most of the main trekking paths start almost from the doors of the hotel. There is a supermarket nearby and several cafes, though the town is small anyway. I want to thank the staff for being helpful in... More

After a bad weather (1 night) of camping in Fitz Roy, me and my friend hiked back to El Chalten and tried to find a room for additional 2 nights. This hotel is located few meters from the start of Fitz Roy hike. I am very happy with the comfort level of the room, with the size of the bathroom.... More
