“Knocks spots off the Edelweiss across the road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Stayed here for one night after our visit to San Carlos. After our very poor experience at the Edelweiss a few days earlier we arrived with some trepidation but the contrast could not have been greater. Lovely welcome, nothing too much trouble, nice spacious room and very good breakfast. How can to hotels so near to each other be so different? Plus the Alpenglow is half the price of the dreadful Edelwiess.

Room Tip: Could be a bit noisy at times on the road side but not major issue

We chose the Alpenglow based on Internet reviews. The hotel is decent enough but does lack ambience. The location is excellent if you want to be downtown. However the traffic noise was excessive. We stayed for two nights during a hot spell of weather and had to decide between heat or traffic noise as there was no fan in the room. Wifi was ok but no cable TV. The breakfast was basic and they do charge extra if you request something cooked such as eggs. The staff are very helpful and English speaking. We did return to Bariloche two weeks later and chose a different downtown hotel.

I would highly recommend staying here...everything was perfect! The location is ideal, the rooms were nice, and the staff was the friendliest I have ever experienced in a hotel. They make you feel so welcome! All of my tours were booked through the hotel and they gave the best recommendations on where to visit. Also, I had lunch in the restaurant and the food and service was amazing. If I go back to Bariloche, I would definitely stay here again!

The room are very nice, by having a very comfortable bed, a very nice bathroom and enough place to store your luggage. The breakfast is excellent. I am not overexaggerating if i am saying that it was the best breakfast we had on our journey through argentina. But the best thing at this hotel are really the owners paula and barbie. They speak perfect englisch and they do whatever they can to make your stay pleasant.

I finally got to Bariloche (via Esqel) after having my original plans derailed by Puyehue. I had the pleasure of staying in LLenga and had views of both the lake and the city. I can only agree with the other reviewers- the hotel is new, clean, has comfy huge beds, and well located. It is modern, stylish and inviting. It was mostly very quiet- both in noise and number of guests. (One one of the nights I was the only guest in the hotel!) There are only a couple of little things that I would have liked to see- like bottled water in the minibar, an extra hook on the back of the bathroom door, better seals on the door and a clothes line that actually locked- but these are very minor niggles in what was a very nice stay. It is definitely the best of the hotels that I have stayed at in Bariloche over the years. I must also thank the wonderful Barbie, in the cafe, who could not do enough to help and went out of her way to accommodate my erratic timetable.

Almost a brand new property, with only 11 rooms/suites, but with an exceptional and personal service. Stylish boutique style, clean, modern, amazing beds, and a staff that will help you out with anything possible. Simply a gem. Central location, but no traffic or noice. This is where you want to stay while in Bariloche!

Room Tip: They upgrade everyone of available.

We came to town a day early for an apartment we rented and needed a place to stay. We walked into Alpenglow and immediately felt at home.The staff spoke perfect English. Paula the owner treated us like family going out of her way to accomodate our friend's request for flowers and champagne the next morning (it was their wedding anniversary and stores were not going to be open at 8 Am!). She also offered herself and her staff if we needed anything while in town although we were not staying at the hotel after the one night. The rooms are new, fresh and modern; breakfast delicious. Centrally located within an easy walk to restaurants and shops.We loved it and highly recommend it .
