“Fantastic hotel- dont go anywhere else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

We stayed 3 nights here and are returning in a few days for a fourth. This is a very quiet and lovely place ,one block from the Main Street. Rooms are comfortable with closets, extra mirrors and plugs , bedside tables and lamps - spacious spotless bathroom . The convenience and comfort cannot be beat!

Very well located, great hosts, good breakfast and nice rooms. You can see the personal touch in every corner. One of the owners is an artist and her touch is all over. There is a nice garden. The living where the computer is, has a tv, which we've never turned on. You seat in front of a big glass window watching the birds in the garden. Enough.
Very nice place, and with the touch of staying in a local house, not in a modern cage hotel room.

We had a nice stay at Kau Kaleshen.
The front desk help to arrange a taxi tour to the glacier as we did not have time to take a regular tour due to our departing flight.
Rooms are simple and clean.
Location is great - just a block off the main street.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This was the first hotel we stayed in on our trip to Patagonia. It set the high standard against which we measured the hotels we stayed in during the remainder of our trip. The hotel is simple, but is extremely clean, tranquil and comfortable. The decor is very remniscent of Patagonian culture. The breakfast is good (for an Argentinian breakfast) and is served in the hotel's tea house where you can also have dinner or stop in for tea and coffee. The hotel is also centrally located and you can easily walk to many places in town including the bus terminal. The best part of our stay was the welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. We were sad to say goodbye to them! The only down side to this place is the thin walls.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I stayed here for 4 nights in Nov. 2012 at a total cost of 440USD for a double room. I would recommend it for people who want to stay in the center of El Calafate, within easy walking distance to the shops and resturants "downtown".

The staff is very helpful and friendly, speaking both Spanish and English. The hotel was great about booking excursions and answering any questions I had. The rooms are simple with tile floors and midrange linens and decor. Not luxury, but not hostel. The heating is good! The breakfast that is included is nice with fruit salad, medilunas, cheese, ham, coffee, milk, tea, cereal.

It was too cold to use the pretty garden area, but they have a nice sitting area, like a Florida room, where you can look out to the garden and read or watch TV. They also have a desktop computer with Internet there. I couldn´t get my iPhone´s wifi to work with their connection, so the computer was key. It seemed the other guests during my stay were quite international and in their late 20´s to 40´s.

Although I booked the room through bookings.com, the hosteria (as it clearly states) only accepts payment in cash.

I might suggest requesting a room on the second floor since I could hear my upstairs neighbors from time to time.

The room is somewhat dark and small, just as the beds. Breakfast is oke but limited choice. Staff was very very friendly everytime. E.g they called several places to find us a massage and booked this for us.
