We had a great time in El Chalten and specially at Estancia La Quinta. It's a very nice and confortable hotel "out of town" (easy access by car), so it's very quiet and you'll enjoy a wonderful landscape view. In my opinion, the breakfast is a bit disappointing (which is very often the case in Argentina) but the diner we... More

The owner comes across as very nice, not so, be careful not to cross him and don't get off the trail. Nicer, easier access hotels to stay right in the little town. If you don't have a vehicle it's hard to get into town.

We stayed on the estancia for two night and loved it there. Alfredo is an amazing host: welcoming, charming, helpful - not to mention his great sense of humor. The estancia is located about 45 minutes walking from the town center of El Chalten; there are free shuttles in the morning and evening and taxis during the day. There is... More

As a couple we loved it here!! The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. The location is set out a bit from town, but you can walk there via a lovely trail over the hills behind the Estancia. We loved that it wasn't right in town. The breakfast was amazing, and the dinner they served on-site was also... More

Had a perfect stay at La Quinta, could be taken as an example of hospitality excellence. Gorgeous settings, comfortable rooms, great common areas and lovely staff always ready to assist with a smile (of the genuine kind). The only drawback is to be a bit dependent of the car, which I did not have, but the Estancia supplies a daily... More

Estancia La Quinta was the best place we stayed in our recent two-week trip to Argentina and Brazil! The rooms are welcoming and comfortable with nice bathrooms, great beds and pretty views. We felt snug and warm while the Patagonian wind was howling outside! The family is very friendly and accommodating, sharing the history of the estancia, the rituals of... More

We stayed at the Estancia La Quinta for 2 nights and felt it truly enhanced our visit to El Chalten. The estancia as a whole is a very charming place, and our 2 year old daughter loved the animals roaming about. We also liked that it was outside of town (and chose it for that reason) because we were seeking... More

Great place a few km outside of town. Great view of the countryside with cows, horses, and dogs wandering around the property. You can even feed the calf in the evening. Service was terrific; all employees were nice and helpful. Breakfast was good. Location was nice for us because we had a car and wanted to be in a more... More

We enjoyed our stay and the use of the grounds as there was a nice hike up the back hill that afforded great views of Fitz Roy. Out front of the estancia is another walk that takes you to where you can see Lake Viedma. And there are friendly cows and dogs around which is endearing. We partook of the... More

We stayed here for five nights and although it was out of town, we were very glad that we did as the hosts and the property made for an excellent stay. The property is located just outside of El Chalten town. El Chalten is the capital of trekking in Argentina but if you don't like walking into town from your... More
