Very nice hotel, 10 min by bus to the center of calafate. Comfortable and clean room with panoramic view. The heating system works very well. The restaurant and the breakfast are good. The hotel has a nice indoor pool and a decent gym and offers spa

The hotel is located up on a hill between El Calafate and the airport. It's quite isolated & it snowed a lot while we were there, so it was quite a picture postcard setting. Coming inside from the cold, the foyer had a large fireplace and comfy couches, so it was a very welcoming start to our holiday & a... More

The hotel is located on the outskirts of El Calafate on a hill overlooking the town and the lake. But it is not close to anything. As the hotel is quite large I gather it is popular with tour groups. The hotel has a complimentary bus shuttle that takes you the +3km into the town centre which runs there &... More

This hotel is not inexpensive and yes, it has a fantastic view, but let this not blind you to how poorly it is run. The staff, universally under 30, seem to think it acceptable to be both curt in their dealings with you as well as tawdry in their attempts to be helpful. Woe betide you if you try to... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of our tour of Brazil and Argentina. I must admit first impression was not favourable as it looked rather bleak and isolated.
