The rooms are adequate, clean but with a lot of wear and tear. The location is very good being a few blocks, easy walking distance, from the main downtown area's shops and restaurants. The service was excellent. We ran into difficulties with our travel arrangements and the hotel staff worked with us to explore options (rental cars, busses, etc.). They eventually found us a tour company (Always Glaciers) that was able to fix all of our transportation and schedule problems. The staff also made great recommendations on local restaurants and they also cheerfully helped us with luggage storage while we were trekking. If you want a luxury room this isn't it. If you want a comfortable base of operations for exploring the area around El Calafate with a staff that is knowledgable and eager to help then this is the place.
