Not sure who is writing all positive reviews so therefore I'm posting my experiences with this hotel: -Building is not maintained for the past years. This is a huge issue. The first room we got had a very noisy toilet. It flushed every 5 min and we informed the reception about this. They sent maintainance which could not resolve it.... More

The hotel was clean, modern and with an excellent view, when there wasn't fog. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they offered us details about the excursions that we could do, what restaurants to try and answered all of our questions. We bought all our trips from the hotel. The breakfast was limited, but sufficient, and the food in... More

Beautiful hotel, awesome design. Great design and spectacular view from the hotel room. All the amenities available on site including a hot swimming pool. Complimentary breakfast and Wi-Fi is great.. Wi-Fi as usual not strong because that is the rule in Argentina... Flaws of design - bathing tub with pipe on one side and shower on the other side.. Swimming... More

Hotel was clean comfortable and modern. Staff were friendly and helpful. Floors in rooms have built in heaters and jacuzzi tubs which were quite relaxing after a long day outdoors int he cold! It is possible to walk to town but it is a long walk and uphill on the return trip.

First of all, don't book through their website since they will charge more for converting the currency - booking. com is usually the same price and there are no problems at all. My boyfriend and I spent 4 days there. I had booked the lake view junior suite, but we were told that if possible we could get an upgrade... More

Design Suites may be a place for you if you want to be 'far from A maddening crowd' It's serene , tranquil, has an absolutely stunning view ! The staff were very caring. Wifi in the room was not good. So I sat in the lobby for my wifi. The breakfast buffet had a great range of delectable cookies. Mouthwatering:)

Excellent staff.... Food was mouthwatering. They packed delectable sandwiches for my glacier trips and arranged the trips. The view is something that I will never forget. Language is a barrier at times....I do not speak Spanish & I wanted vegetarian sandwiches and the staff could not understand.

Great views and overall great hotel. The hotel staff were helpful in making bookings for tours and taxis. The pool and view from the pool was great. The food could probably be improved upon and our hotel room (lake view) got extremely hot due to the big glass windows which made the bedroom like a little greenhouse.

The hotel is great. The view of the Laguna Suite is amazing, the rooms are very comfortable, the service is really good, the building is beautiful and the amenities work very well. The only thing I'd complain about is that the last day the pool didn't look 100% clean, probably of some kind of fungus. But overall we loved the... More

This hotel was a great stop for me after a few nights in a log cabin in patagonia. The bathrooms and rooms are very nice, views are great when the fog is gone haha. The tiles on the bathroom floor are heated and the jacuzzi is great after long hiking days. I definitely recommend this hotel.
