Perfect location to be on the high street with small basic cosy rooms. This hotel provided exactly what you need for a stay in El Calafate. The room was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a good range of options and the wifi was good too. I would definitely recommend staying here for pure convenience.

The rooms were very basic but clean and more than good enough for a stay in el calafate - who's going to spend anytime in here anyway?! Staff were attentive and helped with any queries and the hotel was perfectly located for the town centre.

Clean hotel, decent selection for breakfast, wifi access everywhere, and wonderfully located, just two-three blocks from city center and next to many great eats. The staff was okay - polite but you have to ask the right questions to get information.

The main street in Calafate is very busy so the location of this hotel in a nearby quiet side street was welcome. We were in the town to visit (like most people!) the Perito Moreno glacier and the hotel was geared up to providing early adequate breakfasts to enable early departures. We had a good sized quiet room overlooking the... More

This hotel was very central in the resort town of El Calafate. The facilities are average and the rooms quite small. We enjoyed the breakfast and also ate in the restaurant on one of our two nights. On the second night we ate in the restaurant opposite which was excellent.

We stayed for two nights. The location of the hotel is 3 minute walking to the main street. Room was clean and very comfortable bed. We slept quite well. Staff was very friendly and quite helpful when we stay in. So everything were all good when we stay there.

I group of 8 of us stayed here for one night between Torres del Paine and El Chalten. The hotel is definitely not new. Rooms were clean but bathrooms are small. Any conversation in the hall can be heard in the room. Breakfast was adequate. Receptionist did not appear very happy but answered whatever you asked. English was reasonable. Short... More

The hotel is fine, no real complaints there, reasonable food for the area, fine beds, bathrooms, everything. The hotel could have gotten a 5 star review, even with the mistake they made if not for the complete disregard the staff had for their customers. Long story short, the hotel over booked, the lady that checked us in said we could... More

Good: Not expensive, 500 $ per night. Great location, about 100 meters from center. Nice big rooms. Wifi in the room. Nice traditional breakfast included. Bad: The front desk wasnt too nice. Have to enter wifi password each time when you turn on screen phone. Overall good money worth, nothing too fancy but will do.

We were only at the hotel for one night. It was just alright. The location is very handy to town and many restaurants. The bed was fine and the room was clean and it was quiet...it was all we really needed. Breakfast was served in the restaurant and was the typical Argentinian continental style....not exciting but the dining room is... More
