“Small family hotel with great views and personal service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

12 bedroomed hotel, all with great views of lake in quiet neighbourhood on hill, but close to lots of good places to eat at and drink at, and only 5 minutes walk downhill to the central town area.
Friendly staff, and Oliver had lots of good recommendations both for activities and eateries.
Continental breakfast with fresh orange juice and lovely croissants, as well as cereal, toast, fresh fruit.
Great place to enjoy our 5 days in Bariloche from, would come back.
We really enjoyed the local Cerveza Manush, great beers and nosh and would thoroughly recommend the walk from Los Cohiues to Playa Munoz with side trip to see the waterfall(return trip 10 miles with some steepish climbs)

Room Tip: All 12 rooms over 2 floors have good lake views

The View Hotel is a middle sized hotel on a hill overlooking the beautiful lake in Bariloche. You need to climb some steep streets from the city centre to get there, but it is worth the climb and the location therefore is central but in a quiet neighbourhood.
If you arrive in the afternoon you will be welcomed by the British owner. Very nice for a change to talk some English after many half-Spanish/half-English conversations. The owner and the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful with booking an excursion, but also with preparing an early breakfast at 06:30 hours.
The room is spaceous and the beds are good. There is a small desk, wardrobe and modern bathroom. The wifi-signal is good.
One disadvantage of the hotel is the staircase which is not separated by a door from the aisles. This lets through noise from people walking on the steps, but also from conversations on the ground floor. There is no lift, which wasn’t a problem for us.
Breakfast is very good with very nice croissants, toast, cereal with yoghurt or milk, a fruit basket with apples, kiwis, bananas etc.
One thing to bear in mind is that when you book through Booking.com (or likely other online travel agents), the VAT (IVA) is not included in the rate mentioned on the voucher. The VAT-rate in Argentina is 21%, so this could be a considerable amount. As this was our first hotel stay in Argentina we were somewhat surprised by it, because we hadn’t read the small print carefully.
The View Hotel is not a bargain, but the price is fair according to us.

I stayed for five nights at the View Boutique Hotel with my husband on our vacation. It is a little charming hotel in a good location - just five minutes from downtown, shops and restaurants. The staff is very helpful and friendly - Oliver helped us with hotel and tour recommendations and reservations and was allways very nice. Our room was very clean and comfortable - it was not a big room, but had everything we needed - and the view from the window is wonderful.The bathroom is also very clean and modern. The breakfast service ist OK, with juice, coffee, bread, cereals, some fuits and medialunas.
I would certainly recommend the View Hotel.
If you go to Bariloche, make sure to have dinner at Butterfly - a small charming restaurant by the lake at Playa Bonita - it is absolutelly wonderful.

We stayed at the View Hotel way back in April 2010 but still recall our stay with very fond memories. The room was exceptionally clean and very comfortable and the view from our room was sensational! It was with this gorgeous view at sunrise in the background when my now husband proposed to me on the last day of our stay! You really cannot beat the ambience, comfort and intimate nature of this hotel for a special getaway with your significant other. Ignacio was very accommodating and attentive and the breakfast was fantastic! Just what you need to fuel you up for the day's activities. Although you have to climb up a rather steep hill to get to the hotel, we thought of it as earning the wonderful chocolate in the region! Close proximity to the main streets and lots of food places around, we found the location quite convenient, quiet and away from the main thoroughfare. Just perfect! When relaxing in the lounge area and on the balcony, the size of the hotel means you were not swarmed with other guests or competing for use of facilities. A homely, cosy, welcoming and well presented boutique hotel which surpassed our expectations! Thanks of for the beautiful memories and unforgetable views!

We stayed one night at this hotel en route from Argentinia to Chile . We recieved a warm friendly welcome and excellent advice on a restaurant and other services. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and was well located within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend this small friendly hotel to travellers.

Hip hotel not too far from the town center. Oddly seems to be the nicest building in the immediate area. Helpful staff will give you reliable recommendations for your stay. Breakfast wasn't much, but it was alright. Worth your stay.
