Visited Kosten Aike in El Calafate in late April of 2016. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast included with the stay was excellent (everything from fruit and pastries to eggs, cereal, freshly-baked breads, and cold cuts), and rooms were spacious and comfortable. Furnishings were comfortable but not deluxe. Hotel is located just a couple blocks from the main street,...

The hotel has friendly staff, welcoming drinks and good food. The rooms are roomy and the bathrooms good. The setting is excellent and the town's facilities are all in walking distance. There are great restaurants with lots of meat :) and lots of great cakes :)

We stayed at the Kosten Aike for three nights after checking out of a hotel that we hated. The staff were unbelievably helpful and welcoming! We were not only relieved to be in a more than decent hotel - we were actually pleased with our rooms and the location, which cannot be beat. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfast was...

This was a very nice hotel with the El Calafate "feel" to it. As mentioned by others, is in a great location--just a couple of blocks from town. However, the room we had was just a bit small. It was given to us as an accessible room for handicapped, but the bath was a board across the tub rather than...

Stayed here a total of 4 nights. 1 night at the beginning of our Patagonian trip and 3 nights at the end. What I Liked: The location is great - right in the center so it was easy to get to the main drag. They let us check in early so we were able to visit the glacier. Breakfast was...

Excellent location, only a couple of blocks from main street. On arrival a very nice fruit juice is brought from the bar and check in is very easy and efficient. Wifi is excellent and room spacious and comfortable. However, power points for charging aren't plentiful. Drinks and food in the comfortable bar are reasonably priced and a good buffet breakfast...

We walked into our room and thought we were in a suite as it is huge. Very comfortable bed with a large lounge area with a sofa and desk too. The bathroom has good amenities with a hairdryer and there is a safe in the room. No water is supplied but the tap water in Calafate is good to drink....

Everything about this hotel was fine. Very convenient to shopping and restaurants. The only negative for was that our room faced the street and a bar across the street played music until very late. There is a terrific ice cream shop two blocks down on the main Street.

We only had two nights in El Calafate and this hotel served us extremely well. The room was very comfortable and, as we had been advised, we requested, and were given, a room at the back to avoid the noise of the bars opposite. Very helpful and patient reception staff.
