My wife and I are avid hikers and had dreamed about trekking in Patagonia. I looked online for a hotel in Chalten that caters to trekkers and found Pudu Lodge. We were not disappointed. The hotel is only a five minute walk from the trailheads of two mountains famous to climbers around the world, Monte Fitzroy and Cerro Torre. We... More

Pudu Lodge made my stay perfect: easy, comfortable and in direct touch with the patagonian nature! First, it is very close to the access to the most popular trekking routes such as "Laguna de los tres" y "Laguna Torre". It is 15 minute walk from the bus terminal and gives you the chance of crossing the town and see the... More

First point to note is that Pudu Lodge is the furthest hotel away from the bus station. With limited taxi service and dirt roads, this may present a challenge depending on your fitness and luggage. We walked it in 25 mins. On the other hand, being on the edge of town means the hotel is right at the foot of... More

Spent 4 nights over Christmas and were very happy with location, and the friendliness of the staff and owner. He gave us great information about trekking and basically organized our "trekking" schedule for us. Both young women who worked at the desk were great. The dining room is lovely with great views. Altogether we felt at home, very relaxing. I... More

Stayed one night with friends and we really liked this place. Rooms are nicely decorated and the staff was very nice and friendly. I was only expecting a nicer and home made breakfast, but it was plain without many options. Other than that, I really enjoyed my stay and will be back in the future.

Pudu Lodge is located at the edge of the National Park which makes for easy access to Laguna Capri Camp and Laguna de Los Tres Trail. We did not have car like most visitors to El Chalten who are trekkers. The area is safe and makes access to El Chalten's shops and restaurants very easy to access. The location definitely... More

The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful, including making sure we had early breakfasts two days before our early hike and bus departure. Had we understood that the El Chalten Travel bus stopped at Rancho Grando, very near PuduLodge, we could have saved ourselves a long walk through town. But, it did give us a chance to stock up on...

I stayed here during a G Adventures tour through Patagonia in October 2013. Florencia and Gabrielle were lovely hosts - all staff we encountered were very pleasant and helpful. They were happy to help in any way they could and never made us feel like we were just another tour group to have through. The rooms are lovely and well... More

New, modern small hotel located 5 minutes from the start of the trek to the base of Mount Fitz Roy. It's quite a ways from the bus station, however, so don't do like me and walk all the way there with a briefcase that has no wheels, it's a painfully bad idea : )) The rooms are very nice and...

Positive: The staff is really friendly and is trying to do as good as they can! Negative: The staff isn't really competent. Only one spoke English. Plus: The hotel isn't finished yet. Shower curtain fell off. The area around the hotel is partly a construction site. The room safe was just standing in the shelf without being fixed to anything!... More
