Tourists come to El Calafate for the glaciers, but its city center is about 80 km away from the national park. Xelena Hotel provides amenities to keep you busy during your time away from the glaciers. Within the hotel, they have a game hall with board games, a pool table, and a ping pong table. They have a bar. They... More

Four or Five stars....well, all I can say is I own a tours company here and I've stayed in a dozen of the nicest hotels in Calafate and this is the best. Could you, say, compare it to the Four Seasons in Hong Kong? No. But for what it is it is a terrific place to stay with ridiculously oversized... More

Would definetely book it again. The room size is insane, the ultra mega king size is unreal, there are all sorts of amenities and a handy free shuttle to downtown every 30minutes. Breakfast was quite good and wifi was fast and reliable.

Upon check in , we were initially put off by the cold manner of staff but during our stay they were very helpful . Rooms were large , we'll appointed , and spotlessly clean . Never did get the hang of the heating /air conditioning system so always too warm or cool . Definitely request a room in the back... More

The hotel is a bit out of town, which can be a pain, but there are shuttle services into town. Restaurant is small but nice. Unfortunately the bar doesn't take advantage of the lake view. Rooms are very simple but adequate for a couple of nights.

Very nice hotel by the lake. Rooms are clean, spacious and nice. Staff is firendly and the service is good. A little out of town but has a shuttle service every hour incase you want to go. A very good base to see the great 'Los Glaciers National Park' and the charming town of El Calafate.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and used it as a base to see Perito Moreno, Estancia Cristina, and a day trip to el Chalten. Had a lovely time. View from our room of the lake was beautiful. There is a walking path along the lake where you can see pink flamingos and black necked swans. Breakfast... More

I must admit, I chose this hotel mostly because I didn't expect too much of El Calafate, and this hotel was outside town and on the lake. El Calafate is actually quite a nice little town, and I think in retrospect I may have preferred to stay downtown. There was quite a buzz while we were there as there was... More

We really enjoyed our five nights here. The pictures do not do it justice.. Such a calm and serene stay. We felt that everyone we met there ( front desk waitstaff, etc) to be very engaged and helpful. They helped us to rent a car for a day ( which we thought may be harder than it was) and the... More

Very clean, customer-oriented hotel. English is spoken here relatively well. Rooms were comfortable and on par with nicer hotel chains. The property is not abused or overly worn. Internet was good. The included breakfast has many options; it is quite nice with linen table settings, etc. The indoor/outdoor pool is heated. The hot tub is heated but not to the... More
