Hotel Kosten Aike is an enjoyable place to stay. El Calafate is a small town, so most hotels are not far from the main strip. Kosten Aike is no exception. It appears to be an older property, but is well maintained and the decor is charming. Our room was quite spacious and comfortable, and we slept well. The hot water...

We stayed in a very comfortable and spacious three bed room. The beds are really comfortable.The hotel is a very short walk from the main street of El Calafate and located on a quiet street. We absolutely loved the hotel. The staff was so friendly and accomodating. We arrived on a very early flight, so were at the hotel around...

About location, rooms, restaurant, bar and other amenities, most reviewers will agree this hotel is OK. What we would like to highlight is the friendliness, helpfulness and resourcefulness of the staff at the reception desk (in contrast to some other reviewers. We stayed 3 nights, we had the impression the staff treated us as family.

Wooden beams and timbers, high ceilings. Our room, (third floor) had almost an Austrian feel in design and space. Sure, it's not a totally modern place, but certainly it has a European charm to it. My wife and I liked it very much. Upon the seamless check in, we learned the elevator was broken but we had hiked backpacks around...

We stayed here 4 days and 3 nights and totally enjoyed the experience. From the outside it looks like a large Swiss Chalet, the inside doesn't disappoint. The spacious lobby smells of fresh baked cookies or bread, the staff, especially Victoria were totally accommodating. The biggest and best surprise was our room, large, beautiful, comfortable and very well appointed with...

Very nice hotel. Rooms have a decent size and are clean. The hotel is Not new but in good condition. It is 5 minutes walk from main street on a quiet street so location is great with many restaurants around. Good breakfast.

The hotel is clean and well located but the decor and feel of the place is basic and very dated. This hotel is good if you don't expect too much, as the food is very poor and the Wi-Fi is terrible but it is close to some good restaurants, who also have better Wi-Fi too!

We arrived after a week in BA and were greeted with a refreshing non-alcoholic cocktail on arrival. Our room was spacious, clean, and warm. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and a couple of dinners. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. We would not hesitate to stay again or recommend it to others.
