Around 300 metres from the lift base, but the hotel will shuttle you in the mornings (and probably in the afternoons....but we always walked back)
First night we had an opportuniity to join the astronomer in the sky observatory. We looked at the Milky Way, Mars and Saturn....where we could actually see the rings around Saturn !
What a way to start a ski holiday !
Our room was reasonably spacious, with slate floors and floor heating. The open fireplace was stacked with a small amount of wood each day, which we lit every morning to warm the room (the floor heat seemed insufficient in the mornings).
A large corner spa bath overlooked the mountain....which we actually used most afternoons.
Continental breakfast is actually bought to your room every morning at a pre-agreed time. And, they were punctual every day !
Our room had a small refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, plates and cutlery...you could easily make up a small meal (we didnt bother) . We found it much easier to order Room Service, where again these great people deliver their restaurant meals free of charge to your room. Steak 85 pesos (AUD/USD $17), salad 35 pesos (AUD/USD $7). There is a great little wine store next dooor where you can pick up great Argentian wines for around AUD/USD $8 to $20 a bottle. (Do not buy your wine from the mini market....it is a rip off.)
Galileo staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Look closely though, and there are a few "tired" fittings in the bathroom and bedroom....however these did not distract from a wonderful experience.
We were here to ski, and we really enjoyed this place !
