“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

What a great place! Far exceeded my expectations, as did El Calafate. This hotel is convenient to the center of town, is clean and well kept, and the staff is excellent. Pablo, the desk clerk, handled everything from tours, to transportation, to information and recommendations in the town. Included breakfast, great coffee. I highly recommend this hotel, you will not regret it.

Note to owner: whatever you are paying Pablo, it's not enough! He is excellent!!

This was a great little hotel
Strictly non-smoking
If you are doing the glacier trip the day after arrival then book packed lunch BEFORE you arrive at hotel - we arrived late and had to buy dreadful lunch from local grocery store
Small rooms, good breakfast, very clean, garden outside
Very light at night of course, take an eye shield

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. Very clean with wonderful wood work all around. Breakfast was the typical argentine standard and good. It is about a 10 minute walk into center of town. Would stay here again!

Stayed at this comfortable hotel over Christmas 2013, and had a great stay. Pablo at the front desk was super helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean, comfy king bed, spotless bathroom (jacuzzi tub and heated floor!), breakfast daily, lobby bar and lounge, and in walking distance to most everything in the central part of the town. Recommend this hotel for your El Calafate stay! Oh, and if you're planning to be here over any holidays and want to rent a car, reserve it 2-3 months out if you can.

Mixture of stone and wood very pleasant, but could do with a nice log fire place to warm the atmosphere! every thing in this hotel was good. The reception and help given, the pack lunches arranged(this is important as many excursions are day long and one needs to organize this) cleanliness and space. the rooms were fairly small but there were a lot of areas in the hotel where you could chill out comfortably. no internet in the rooms only in common areas. Breakfast was excellent! fresh fruits, and fresh squeeze orange juice, a treat. Lots of choice on their breakfast buffet and excellent 'media lunas'! for people with walking problems it may be a little way out, but for those who walk comfortably hotel is very central and can walk everywhere, bus station, tour agents, restaurants, shops.

My needs are simple - the hotel must be clean, comfortable, safe, convenient, and with accommodating staff. The Patagonia Queen hits all the buttons. It is a very charming small hotel. The use of wood and the multiple common areas make you feel as if you were in a small renovated mansion. There is a small bar in the lobby as well. Very comfortable. The bedrooms are small, but they are clean and quiet. The bathrooms are adequate and have lots of hot water. The included breakfast buffet was good but not over the top, which was good because I had already eaten far too much on this trip. There is internet in the lobby area, as well as individual computers set up in a nook on the second floor. The third floor has a very nice game room including pool table and ping pong. Great way to spend a quiet evening. This town does not offer much more than some gellato after dark. The location is excellent. This is a desolate area of the world and taxi cabs were few. It is a very easy walk to the main part of town as well as banks, restaurants, and supermarkets which are all located on the one main street. There are many large hotels in the surrounding area but they are very isolated and you would need your own car or depend on local transportation, which is spotty. That alone makes this the best choice to stay in El Calafate. The staff were all exceedingly helpful and friendly. Thanks for all of your help Pablo, Jonathon, and Rafael. My original afternoon flight was rescheduled for a very early morning arrival. I had planned on wandering around the town for hours until I could check in. However the manager very kindly found an open room and allowed me to check in early. This was a great kindness that was very much appreciated. The staff was also very helpful in arranging some great tours of the surrounding areas (glaciers, mountains, etc.) This hotel offers everything you could need during your stay in El Calafate and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I suppose a second floor room might be a little quieter as the first floor rooms are just off of the...
