“Perhaps we were lucky but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2006

We stayed at the Hosteria in late April which is clearly the end of the season for the Park - we were the hotel's only guests! Consequently, it was quiet, cosy and perfect for our needs. The Hosteria is in a great location with fantastic views although the road to reach it is terrible - but that's pretty average for the Park anyway.

We got a puncture on our way there and the Hosteria's staff couldn't have been more helpful. Despite our poor Spanish and her non-existent English, the receptionist managed to help us get a new tyre bussed up from Punta Arenas and delivered to the hotel - at no charge. The Hosteria was clean and comfortable and quiet - although the internal walls did seem quite thin so we can imagine it's noisy when more people are staying there. We'd been so scared by reviews of the food that we only ever had breakfast there but it was adequate and we had the best seat in the house! All the accommodation in the Park is overpriced so you might as well put up with what you can in order to see some spectacular scenery.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2005

On our month long trip through the whole of Chile and a bit of Argentina this was undoubtedly the worst hotel we stayed at. Prices in Torres del Paine are expensive but you should still expect certain standards. The rooms were very small, there was construction work going on outside, check out was tedious and time consuming and the water supply was erratic. However the worst was the food - several people were sick and one does not expect to see the leftovers from the previous evening still in hot presses at breakfast. Do not stay there if you can possibly help it!!!
