“Peaceful and quiet place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

You should stay alert that things can seem nicier and bigger at their website, but, all in all, it was a good place to stay, in a nice and peaceful neighborhood. It is a little out of the main drag, not enough to be considered too far. Our room was fair, everithing was in order, heater worked well and the bed had a firm mattress. Breakfast was also fair, well prepared, but limited in amount. They advised us on a very nice place to have dinner.

We had an amazing 3 night stay here whilst visiting the glacier. The hotel staff are fantastic and always on hand. The hotel itself is very basic but incredibly Cosy and warm, ideal after those long days trekking over the glacier. Packed lunches were prepared for us and were perfect for the day. Would love to come back to el calfate and will be staying at Cauquenes de Nimez.

This is a lovely, inexpensive place to stay. It's about 15 minutes' walk from the centre - maybe less - but it's worth the walk because the location is stunning. It's right on a lagoon and the hotel makes full use of the view - the restaurant is on the first floor and has stunning views on all sides over lagoons, lakes and mountains. The downstairs common area is comfortable and pretty with free tea in the afternoon. Best of all though are the staff who are an absolute delight. Polite, attentive, kind and good fun. Highly recommended.

An excellent hosteleria, in a quiet location. Just right for walking near the lagoon and birdwatching, whilst only a short ten minute walk to town.
The staff were helpful, caring and supportive when my partner contracted bronchitis and they looked after us really well. Its a lovely place to relax and unwind.

Could not agree more with previous reviews. Cauquenes is a new hotel with a very cozy feel to it. Calafate is extremely touristy, this place has clearly decided not to be part of that. The service is indeed excellent. The rooms are, as said, new, great bed, lovely view of lake, nice showers with warm water and enough room to unpack 2 backpacks. The only downside is that it is a 10 min walk into town, which did not bother us at all. If you want to eat at the hotel in the evening, you have a practically private restaurant, with wonderful views and good, home cooking. The wine is also nice. All in all, a very recommendable stay!

The "Hosteria Cauquenes De Nimez" is a beautiful small hotel with a staff that makes you feel like you're Home.
We came to El Calafate as part of our Honeymoon and stayed in "Hosteria Cauquenes De Nimez" for 3 night, We had a very nice Welcome with Hot Tea and cookies, Flor helped us alot before we even came to Argentina and aranged the 2 trips we did with great companies.
The room isn't big but very clean and comfortable, there's a living room dowstairs with TV and DVD, computer that we were alowed to use, and a beautiful view everywhere!
Also there's a small lake with Flamingoes and other beautiful birds about 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
We enjoyed the walk from the hotel to the main street, it's beautiful with fresh air! it's only a 10 minutes walk and if you want a taxi is only 10 pesos maximum.
Was really worth for the low price they charge! Will definitely recommend to my friends.

Thank you girls for making us feel like home, we enjoyed our stay very much.
Sharon and Gidon.
