“This hotel had bed bugs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2009

We booked one night in this hotel after reading a recommendation in Fodor's Argentina and 2 favourable reviews on trip advisor. We had less than 24 hours in Bariloche, and no car, so it's proximity to downtown sights was the reason we selected this hotel. The price ($80 for double room) seemed reasonable - or so we thought. The room itself was a bit dingy on arrival, lots of wood paneling and 70's style heavy orange curtains. The bathroom(s) were odd - the bathtub, shower and basin in one room, and the toilet and another basin in another. Not the best design. However, given the short length of our stay and the ok price, we decided to stay. I wish we hadn't. In the early hours of the morning I woke up to discover a bug in the bed. Given the hour, and the fact that we were rushing to get an early morning flight, I didn't request to change rooms, or have the opportunity to report this to the hotel. I didn't notice any bites etc for the next 7 days. However, last night my body became covered in huge bites, which, when I visited my doctor, were diagosed as most likely to be the work of bed bugs. She confirmed that a reaction can take up to 9 days to appear, so I am positive that I owe my current itchy, painful and ugly condition to the additional occupants of our bed at Casita Suiza. This hotel needs to call pest control ASAP. GROSS.

Very nice hosteria in the centre of Bariloche. Nice, bit old fashioned and standard rooms, but very clean. Also it has a great restaurant (swiss oriented food like cheese fondue). It is not anexpensive hotel, around 55 US dollars per night, and really worth the money.
