Like one of the previous reviewers reported, looked good from the outside, but..... Despite the mild temperature, all the radiators in the room bathroom were on, the room was stifling, and because the handles were missing, we had to get a spanner from reception to turn off. Had to sleep with windows open but still like a sauna and then...

We stayed for three nights. The room was clean, with a pleasant scent and warm. Bed was exceptionally big and we slept well. Lar Aike is some 15 min. walk to downtown, which is an excellent opportunity to stretch your legs after a good dinner. Breakfast was ok, although mainly pastries are offered. You can hardly eat a healthy breakfast...

Stayed here one night.  On the main road overlooking Lago Argentino.   Room was clean and rustic decor, rather on the small side but fine.  Helpful staff.  Breakfast was not that good, consisting of pastries and coffee although I have experienced worse breakfasts whilst in Argentina!

All the basics are fine, breakfast is the same fare you'll find in every hotel in Argentina, as otters have said the walls are thin, and the rooms have 1970's wood-paneled feel to them, lol. other than that it's fine. el calafate isn't a place you go to hang out at your hotel room anyway, so sort of worth the...

Spacious place, rooms and common areas have plenty of space although furniture is outdated. Breakfast is ok for Argentine standard, though I missed eggs. Rooms are not very soundproof, you can hear the people in the other room talking. Location is a little out of the centre but was not a problem(about 10m walk to start of centre).

This sitting and bar areas immediately around the front desk looks nice, but the rooms are grim and the bathroom worse. This hotel seems to have invested into the common areas only and left the rooms to deteriorate. Breakfast was okay. Dinner at hotel restaurant - meh. One afternoon a couple trying to check-in buzzed and buzzed at the front...

we stayed for three nights. The staff was very helpful. At the time the lift was out of order and I had a broken hip. The staff insisted I use the service elevator. It was not to bad a walk into town. The room was nice and clean and the food was good.

First, the good things: very pleasant lobby and very helpful staff. We also loved the view from the lobby of the lake, and all the birds congregating in this part of the lake -swans, flamingoes, and much more right outside the hotel across the street. No need to trek to Laguna Nimez when they're all congregating right there. The staff...

As soon as I arrived, I had to deal with a large spider who had taken up residence in the bathtub and I noticed some mold in the bathroom also. Not a great start. It's also an very loud place with congregating areas right next to rooms so that other guests can keep you up all hours of the night....

Hotel was booked as part of a glacier tour package. Very pleased with the room, staff have been very helpful and friendly. Location was the only minor complaint. We ate at the hotel restaurant once and found the food reasonably priced and good.
