“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I stayed at the Sierra Nevada hotel for 3 nights and found it a very relaxing, friendly place with spacious comfortable rooms and a wonderful buffet breakfast. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and spoke very good English to offset my embarrassingly poor Spanish ! I also enjoyed a fantastic evening meal in their restaurant and a great packed lunch for a day's excursion. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this hotel if I was ever lucky enough to return to such a beautiful part of the world.

Clean, comfy if a bit worn in places. Good location, right next door to Pura Vida restaurant and only 5-10 mins from downtown. Easy walk to lake.

Two things let this hotel down in my opinion, first the breakfast buffet is very limited and of poor quality. Secondly, I really dislike sheets and blankets for bedding and would prefer a duvet.

There is some noise from a nearby road at night, so bring earplugs.

Sierra Nevada has a great location on the main street and within walking distance from the primary shopping/restaurant areas. The room was spacious and the small balcony was an added plus. The breakfast was very good and the view of the lake from the restaurant area is great. The common areas (reception/lounge) free computers/WIFI were nice and the staff was very helpful. The hotel even stored some of our luggage while we traveled outside of El Calafate for two days. Overall a very nice hotel in El Calafate!

This is a very pretty hotel and in a good situation from which to visit the city of El Calafate. Unfortunately we were let down by the uncomfortable mattress and pillows on the bed. It was also rather noisy as the main street is outside and the two nights we stayed there were a lot of "boy racers" in town. Breakfast was also unmemorable.

I spent two nights in peak season, and Sierra Nevada Hotel was a very pleasant welcome in the nice little touristic city of El Calafate. The personnel was kind and professional, the room was very large and pretty quite, wifi perfectly working, breakfast ok and the location just excellent: right on the main street but just enough away from the noisy summer time night life. Highly recommended.

We stayed there for 3 nights 2 weeks ago and enjoyed every moment. Everything was fantastic from the room, staff and food and the area. It was one of the few places on our visit that it was sad to leave. I would definitely consider coming back to stay.
