“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The owner thought of every detail to make your stay unforgettable. Our room was the "Cerro Campanariol", overlooking the lake and the snowy peaks of the Andes mountains. There was a jacuzzi in front of a large window overlooking the lake and mountains. Besides this romantic detail, there was a sauna just for us in the room! The restaurant is wonderful. The service is perfect! The view from the restaurant is spectacular, a dream! The architecture of the hotel resembles an English village. The garden is very harmonious, with beautiful flowers. The hotel is on a hillside on the "Playa Bonita", one of the most beautiful places in Bariloche. There is a gate that leads to the lake Nahuel Huapi. We were there in December 2012, celebrating my birthday. I will never forget the warmth and friendliness of Belen, the daughter of the owner Alberto, a man enthusiastic about your wonderful hotel. My husband and I spent unforgettable days there. We will return as soon as possible!!!

My wife and I recently spent 5 nights at charming(unfortunate name in English), which is probably situated in the most beautiful site for a hotel. Make sure to get a room with a view of the lake and mountains beyond, with a balcony or terrace. The views are simply magnificent, and the location is about 5 miles out of town on the coastal road. Best to have a car to explore the area, and not stay in town, which is a bit tacky. The hotel restaurant is also one of the best in the area, and modestly priced. The menu is limited, but all dishes are nicely prepared, and the breakfasts are spectacular. This is a wonderful place to relax.

It's taken me a while to write this review, but I see that I might not need to because everyone else is singing praise for Charming. We also had a great experience staying with them. Upon check in, we had a seat in the lovely restaurant with an amazing view of the lake and treated to a glass of wine while they prepped the room and took our bags. The owner then came out and introduced himself and showed us our room, which also had a stunning view of the lake! They put a US flag outside our room, and all the other rooms had the national flags of the guest which I thought was a brilliant touch. There were all kinds of great amenities that you wouldn't even expect like a steam shower and sauna. We had gotten in rather late so we ate at the restaurant the first night was delicious. The manager of the hotel happened to be helping out at the front desk and she went out of her way to give us great restaurant recommendations, help us book activities like a cave hike, and overall was amazing to us during our stay. Don't hesitate on booking this one...just do it and you'll be glad you did.

We've just got back from Charming Luxury Lodge and we loved it!!! There were six of us (my parents, my husband, our two young boys and myself) so they offered us a cottage instead of the two rooms I had originally booked and it was GREAT!!! My boys were really excited with the attic they were given and the two other rooms were excellent!! The view was amazing and the spa inside the room (which I originally thought we wouldn't use) was awsome!!! The pool, even though small, was very appreciated by the boys!! It was really warm and a great way to end the day when we got back to the hotel in the evening. We had dinner there once and it was very good (but it took a quite a while for the food to arrive)... Breakfast was delicious and the view AMAZING!!!!

Our room was simply stellar overlooking the lake and pool, the access to the beach was very convenient, the in-room spa facilities were great, the bed was comfy, food was delightful in the restaurant (Stag), champagne each morning for breakfast with rose-petals scattered on the linens, lake-front views for dining in the evenings, Santiago was very helpful at the front desk to suggest excursions, perfect weather...we should have stayed a week vs only 3 nights!

My husband and I stayed here while on our honeymoon. The room was spacious and had gorgeous views of the lake and mountains. The bed was super comfy and we enjoyed playing with the in-room spa amenities. Staff were super helpful and fantastic in arranging our ride to and from the airport, helping us get around town and making sure we were comfortable. We had trouble with noise one night as our room was right under the restaurant, but when we alerted the front desk of this, it was immediately addressed. The rate included a super yummy breakfast. All in all a wonderful place to stay!

Room Tip: We had master suite on the lake, the views were probably the best of the whole hotel as long as you...

We stayed at Charming for 4 nights in December 2012 in absolutely appalling weather. In spite of the conditions, our stay was delightful and very memorable. All the staff were extremely helpful, particularly in very difficult conditions, and the owner Alberto really made us feel at home and part of the family. A highlight of our stay was a special dinner just before Christmas with lamb cooked on an open fire and a party in the hotel that we were invited to join. The room was amazing with every possible facility and a great view. We liked the location; it was good to be out of town and there were excellent restaurants nearby.
