(driving on a rocky road for 17 km), what you find is a magical place to spend few days while you do some hiking in the area. I never thought I'll fall in love with a mountain, but I guess Fitz Roy does it to you time and again. We were extremely lucky with the weather, so we picked and... More

We spent a night in El Pilar and hiked back to el Chalten. The hotel arranged for the transport of our luggage. The hotel is at the starting point of where many trekkers take a shuttle to start their trek back to town. Staying at the hotel enables you to get an early start. The views from the hotel are...

Everything about this place is special. Surely the highlight must the setting; it is magnificent at the base of Mount Fitz Roy. But then there's the food... Our room was tasteful and warm and comfortable, the staff super friendly and efficient and the food...

Rooms are gorgeous as is the setting. Really nice staff, especially Sebastian who helped put with lifts into town. This place is lovely but it IS a long way from town. No wii-fi - not a problem unless you HAVE to stay connected to the world! It is at trail head for some lovely walks.

My husband and I were looking for a place in Patagonia to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Our plan was to find a place IN the mountains, close to a lake or stream, away from civilization. 'Hostería El Pilar' has everything we were looking for: excellent location, fantastic view of the Fitz Roy, very friendly staff, simple and cozy rooms,... More

Perfect location for several great hikes. staff excells at making you feel at home. It s a no-nonsense place with still a touch of luxury provided by three course dinnermeals of a more than decent quality and tidy rooms. Another plus is the assistance for transport to el chalten and the lunchmeals. In short, they deliver a perfect combination of... More

Stayed here one night because my camera batteries were dying and needed electricity. This ended up being one of the better placed I stayed in Chalten. Dinner at the restaurant was really good, the staff was very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to accommodate me, and the rooms were very nice. It's a bit more money... More

No TV, radios, phones....relaxing and completely off the beaten track. My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and would go back in a heartbeat. It's a 20-30 minute drive outside of El Chalten and located at the start of the trailhead where many set off to start their trek to Fitz Roy. There are many other hikes you... More
