This is a charming place to stay located just a short walk from the main part of town. It has the feel of a lodge or country place, which is highligted by the sheep, cows, dogs and horses on the property! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The bar has a comfortable, relaxing feel to it, tempting you to... More

It is a quaint and relaxing hotel with bicycles that they give you to ride into town (3 minute bike ride). the staff speaks english and they are super helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely hotel which is just a short bike ride from the downtown area. The hotel even provides the bikes! Our room had three single beds and a very large, modern bathroom (with a haridryer.) The breakfast includes scrambled eggs which was a welcome surprise after seeing too much of ham and cheese on morning buffets. We... More

Our stay at Kau Yatun, like our entire trip to Argentina, was perfect! We were warmly welcomed when we first entered the hotel and had excellent service for our entire stay. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. It was comfortable and felt very homey. The breakfast was basic, but was delicious and had enough to get your day started.... More

This is an older lodging and it is a bit run down. Our rug was dirty, curtains were torn and you could hear people talking in the room next door. Breakfast was minimal. But it was a nice location and about a 15 minute walk to town. Radiators warmed the room, the shower was good, but there were single paned... More

I guess reviews have to do with knowing the destination (Argentinian Patagonia, El Calafate)...I´ve seen more than 20 different places to stay in El Calafate & I would choose Kay Yatún & Estancia 25 de mayo again. Staff was extremely helpful & we loved the "country side" atmosphere there. Be aware that it is not located within the town (this... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Kau Yatun. Rooms and bathrooms are very big, but dated. Service is horrible: no smiles, lack of character and initiative, not helpful at all (and this in Argentina where people is notoriously warm and welcoming). Breakfast is very poor and the quality very low. Dinner a la carte disappointing. By far... More

My family and I recently spent 5 days at Kau Yatun. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is good. It is located on a tiny former estancia and has pet sheep and cattle roaming around so you feel like you are on the farm. My kids aged 10 and 11 loved it. We used the free bikes... More

The hotels that had been recommended by the sources I usually use were entirely booked during our stay—Kau Yatun had availability during the nights we needed for all the rooms we needed, so I took it but was very skeptical. It turned out to be *fabulous*, like a nice little Swiss hotel in the mountains. The hotel is set in... More

We had a great experience at the hotel and found the staff to be very friendly. It's a short walk to town, which was also very convenient. We loved the lobby bar and the sheep herding shows each day. The grounds are beautiful, so we spent a lot of time exploring and playing with the dogs. The folk show/dinner at... More
