“Value, Charm and friendly staff... nice room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

We stayed a couple nights at the Austral and I have to say I'd come back if I were in town, therefore also recommend it to anyone seeking for a good and unexpensive place to stay at. As usual, fund ut about this place via Tripadvisor, because not too many people knew about it when I asked for references.

Facundo and his wife (the owners) were very helpful and always gave us great advice on the activities, transportation, tours... The helped us with the cabs whenever we needed, too.
The location is also good, just a couple blocks from the main street and minutes away from the marina, most restaurants and shops. Though one of the blocks is quite steep, the walk is great and not difficult.

The rooms are spacious and the sleep quality very good, too. That's very important and it was a nice thing to hav during our stay.

Breakfast was not the best, but it was good enough to get a good start. keep in mind Ushuaia is really far, so havn fresh fruits to make it better, at all times, is a bit difficult. That's the only thing I missed from other hotels, but not a big deal.
Would recommend this place!!!

Room Tip: I guess all of them are quite good and about the same.

We stayed here a few nights while in Ushuaia.

he hotel was clean and spacious. It is family run and the service was very nice. The hotel is close to the main street in Ushuaia but not super loud or busy.

The included breakfast was super nice and personal with the staff actually asking what you want to eat and drink.

There is one computer there to share which is nice and the wifi is pretty good in the hotel.

Would recommend staying here.

We have recently returned from a great holiday in Argentina and while in Ushuaia stayed twice at the Austral Hotel.
Oringinally we were to stay 4 nights and then another four nights. Prior to our first arrival there were airline problems and we were advised by the airline that we would be staying over in El Calafate before flying to Ushuaia the following day- I therefore cancelled our room. ... After doing so was advised by the airline that we would be going to Ushuaia that evening! I phoned the Austral back advising that we would be coming after all - however they had by that time rebooked our room. The Austral were extremely helpful and found us an alternative hotel for the night.

We then stayed at the Austral following that.They were extremely accomodating allowing us to leave our baggage with them on several occassionsl and to use the internet before we had checked in the second time.

Both rooms we stayed in were lovely - warm and with plentry of space. The showers had good water pressure and lots of hot water. There's an in room safe as well.

Breakfast was excellent and hot toast cooked for us and brought to our table each morning.
Assistance and advice was given to us on what we could do, where we could eat and so on. They also have free internet access which was great as we dont travel with a laptop.
Great hotel and great service from a lovely family. Highly recommend this hotel. They have limited rooms so advise prebooking.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be fine. Small hotel and not much street noise. A block back from San Martin.

While definitely not a "5 Star Hotel," we have to give them five stars because we enjoyed everything about the hotel, and the room rate was awesome. The hotel is ideally located, just a block from the main street in Ushuaia, and just a few steps from a wonderful Irish bar.

Our room was very large and comfortable, and the bathroom was great as well. The dining/common area is not very inviting or decorated, but the breakfast was very good, and the bar in the hotel is good as well. One of our best nights in Argentina was drinking a couple of beers while looking out the hotel's large glass window that overlooks the Beagle Channel and the surrounding mountains. There was enough light to watch the view until nearly midnight. Amazing.

The hotel might not have all of the amenities of a larger hotel, but its location, comfortableness, and value, make it an excellent place to stay.

LOCATION
Be careful when choosing a hotel in Ushuaia because the city is on a slope. Hotel Austral has a good location in dowtown Ushuaia: just 2 blocks (or 2 minutes) uphill from main street.

ROOM
We booked a double room and it was really big with a queen bed, a small table and 2 armchairs. No frills. Neither new nor old, but clean and very comfortable. No noise. Free wifi. The room was a bit dark because it faced an inner courtyard (as the rest of rooms).

BREAKFAST
The breakfast is buffet style but not very extensive compared to other hotels in Argentina.

RECEPTION
The attention at front desk is very friendly and sincere. When we asked about the alternative of hiring a taxi driver for a few hours to go to the Natural Park, the hotel owner himself and his son-in-law offered us to do the tour in their own car. The tour had the same duration, it was cheaper (300 ARS) than taxi drivers’ (450 ARS) and explanations came from someone who has lived in the town for many many years. We were lucky, I know it is unusual for them to do something like that; ask for it, just in case.

OVERALL
Good value for money, good location and excellent attention. I would stay again.

Small family run hotel in Ushuaia. We booked early and despite inflation still received the quoted room rate. Very conveniently located only one block from the main shopping street and restaurants. Friendly and helpful proprietor who speaks excellent English. Our room, number 6, was quiet, spacious but overly warm for our liking. Breakfast was adequate but no savoury options. Good value and highly recommended for a few days in Ushuaia.
