A very beautiful, fresh and clean hotel. Our room a loft on the top floor. When we arrived we had to sort out the last issues on the cruise that we would do the next day. The clerk at the front desk helped us so much. We delighted our stay and breakfast the next day.

After two weeks of traveling through Chile and Argentina we found ourselves at Poincenot in order to hike Fitz Roy. Clean, simple, and affordable this was a great place to end after a long day of hiking. But best of all Maria Belen was truly fantastic. She went above and beyond to make us welcome. She not only answered all... More

This great little hotel makes you feel at home in the windy town of El Chaltén. The staff is friendly, and service minded. The situation of the hotel is a quiet spot at the end of the Main Street. If you don't want to hear the wind make sure to get a room on the eastern side.

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
