We stayed here for three nights. The staff were amazing! If possible upgrade to a suite, it has great views and worth the extra money. A word to the wise. If you have difficulties walking or are winded easily it will be difficult to walk the four blocks to town. We saw an older gentleman struggling to climb the stairs... More

We had a room on the top floor and were extremely impressed with the view of the town and beautiful landscape. The only downside was that the hotel was starting to show its age with peeling wallpaper and dusty comforters. Yes, the location is up a hill. But if you're in Patagonia to hike/trek, the short uphill walk should not... More

Positives The hotel has a fantastic view over the town and the lake/mountains. We had room 305 and loved the view. A few reviews mention its location as being on the top of a very steep hill. I think the walk to town was easy, perhaps for older or less active/mobile people it is less desirable, but we walked up... More

Visited in early April for a night. Nice modern, slightly western decor. Front desk and service overall were nice. Restaurant and food were actually less casual than I expected...not like a typical lodge, but more upscale/quality. Wifi was sporadic but is the case in the region. I had read other reviews about the Hotel being up on a hill, and... More

The hotel is wheelchair accessible and has 3 rooms for handicapped. The entrance is on a very inclined street as it has around 35 degrees which makes the access on a wheelchair quite impossible. The hotel is modern with a touch of rustic.

Eight hours into our stay at the Esplendor in El Calafate I was sufficiently disappointed that I tweeted "the hotel is very pretty but all the basics are wrong". After four days there I can confirm that its surface level prettiness disguises a 2* quality hotel based on service and quality. Features and amenities typical of a 4* hotel that... More

My husband and I were really excited for our 3 night stay here at the end of our Argentina honeymoon. The location, view and common area were all really great and met expectations. The room and service, however, didn't. Our room was tiny. I don't know if it was typical for a 'standard' room or not, but there was about... More

Stayed here for two nights. The staff here have a lukewarm attitude - they gave you this hi-but-I-don't-really care attitude. Breakfast spread was good. A selection of bread and pastries are available. Had dinner here - the pizza was worse than the ones in Dominos Pizza. Wifi connection is good at the lobby but poor in the rooms. The maintenance...

We stayed at the Esplendor for 2 nights and it was a great base. It's 7-10 minute walk from the main streets with restaurants and shops and perched at the top of a hill, giving you great views across the lake.
