“Nice clean and welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Small hotel in a wooden house very welcoming and clean.
Location is good providing you have a car as it is not in the center of town.
Very good value for money when you have a car.
The last part of the road is not very good but it's manageable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

The pension is located quite far from the center, the nearest shops and restaurants are within a distance of about 1km. However, it is just down the road, in the direction to the glacier, so if you are going there on a trip, with travel agency, they will pick you up straight from the hosteria. The rooms are modern and clean, with a large bathroom. The dining room offers beautiful views of lake and mountains.

A small hotel in Calafate. Simple but with all the comfort necesary to have a wonderful staying. Rooms are quite comfortable, bathroom OK, TV Cable, heating. Very tidy. Owners so nice and always ready to help visitors. It is located 3 km from downtown., in the way to the glaciers. Taxi costs $ 5 argentinian pesos (1.6 U$S).
Typical argentinian breakfast (coffee/tea/milk,bread, butter, marmalade).
Excellent price quality relation.

Los Fresnos is wonderful. My husband and I found it accidentally when we asked our hotel in Punta Arenas to recommend somewhere in El Calafate. They didn´t hesitate and recommended this spot. Firstly the good points:
It has lovely, warm, clean, en-suite rooms, providing plenty of clean towels, nice bedding, television with plenty of selection if you need a lazy hour or two.
The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
It might have a few foreign tourists but the majority of their clients are relative locals (Argentinians/Chileans) who know the good spots (note that you rarely find these travellers in any flea-pits, they are usually reserved for foreign tourists booking blind by phone or in desperation). This gives it a very authentic feel.
Breakfast is included although like most Argentinian breakfasts it wasn´t very exciting.
It offers the services of a boutique hotel (it is a hosteria not a hostal) but for only slightly more money than a hostel. We paid 150 Argentinian pesos per night in peak season. We considered it very good value for money.

There are 2 drawbacks. It is a 20 minute walk or 5 minute taxi drive from the centre. Taxi´s are cheap and we never paid more than 6 pesos for the journey. The staff don´t have particularly good English but we got by okay with negligible Spanish.

  • Liked — Clean rooms, good value.
  • Disliked — Distance from town about 1.5km
