We overall enjoyed our stay Hotel Sierra Nevada. It’s in a good location at the end of town and pretty much next door to the amazing Pura Vida Restobar. Our room had a nice view towards Lago Argentina and some horses, even though our room faced a busy street. Although a little older-looking, the room was bright and airy with a vaulted ceiling. Plenty of space for our luggage, a small TV in one corner, and sliding glass door towards the views. Bathroom was decent too.
The lobby is quite nice with several sitting areas and squashy sofas. There are only two very slow computers for guests in this area. A very friendly calico cat greeted me on morning outside the hotel, and it brushed around my legs as I waited for our bus. Breakfast was average: lots of canned fruits, pastries, and I believe oatmeal or something.
The front desk spoke decent English, but apparently there was enough of a misunderstanding that on the first day of touring, they gave away our paid Tour Lunches to some other couple! We had been provided very clear instructions on what our box lunches should look like, and when the staff realized the mistake, they were quick to apologize and make us one from in-house.
Our stay lasted 3 nights. As we had done a 7-day trekking tour before arriving in El Calafate, we had them do our laundry; However, they forgot to charge us extra for it because we didn’t see it on the receipt after checking out. Oh well, their loss.
I’d stay here again if I ever come back to El Calafate. Since it seemed they had some disorganization regarding our lunches and laundry, be sure to do some follow-up if necessary.
