We actually originally booked Hotel La Cantera, and got bumped as they had overbooked it. Being annoyed about it at first, I think we got the better deal at Hotel Xelena (we went to see La Cantera and had dinner there). Hotel Xelena is right on the lake and our room had beautiful views. It is outside the little town...

We stayed here with my girlfriend as a gift for finishing college. The hotel is ok. It had a 3X2 nights promo due to being out of season. The breakfast was fine. The hotel is out of the city center, but they have a free shuttle service every half hour. If not, a cab is an unexpensive option. The distance...

I have to take the time to highly recommend the Xelena Deluxe Suites Hotel. It was a comfortable sized hotel room with a sitting area and best of all it has a totally unobstructed view of the bahia of Lago Argentina. I stayed for 5 nights and 6 days in December of 2010. The hotel staff was able to recommend...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in Nov. 2010 while we were exploring the glaciers. Overall our room was great, pool is amazing, shuttle to town is convenient, and the food was good!

This is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting . Unfortunately, our first night, the people in the next room were still partying at 2am. A call to the front desk got them to quiet down. The second night, they showed signs of doing exactly the same thing, so we spoke with management much earlier. They were horrid to management...

This hotel ia in a wonderful poosition.

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel. It was actually lovely. The personnel were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and very comfortable, lots of room to spread out. However, there were a few problems with our room. First of all, it was very hot. There was one small window which opened, but it didn't cool off the...

Staff was not well informed and services they claim to offer like 24 hours room service and pick up was not included. Very misleading! I had to pay 100 USD fine for smoking in the room once...
