The hotel itself is very very nice, rooms are clean and smell of fresh laundry. Staff is very helpful and wifi works quite well. You can have a nice glass of wine (what else? you are in Argentina!) spending a nice evening in the restaurant bar. We were on the way from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas. We found out that... More

Two nights at the Hosteria Kaiken and 'just' 90 kms from the end of route 3 down to Ushuaia on our 5-week trip around Argentina. Large room, with TV... good to know Spanish!

The only place in Argentina where we were disappointed. Although the hotel's location is beautiful and some of the staff were very helpful, the service from others was poor to the point of being unfriendly and rude. The food was very disappointing - dinner was over-cooked on each of our three evenings and breakfast was very limited with empty dishes... More

Stayed here in late November 2013 instead of Ushuaia. The hotel gives the appearance of being a little run down. Door knob on the room was loose, hot water was passable but pressure was low. Towels were cheap and thin. On the morning I was leaving I got up early (7:30 AM?) to load the motorcycle before breakfast. The front... More

This is a lovely hotel with views across the lake looking from Argentina to Chile. It is mid way between Rio Grande and Ushuaia. This means that you need to travel to Ushuaia to see the main sites, but it is a short drive to the nearest ski fields, which makes it an affordable option if you are skiing. I... More

High standard, cosy room, with veranda overlooking the lake, great value for money. We booked this at booking.com at a very good rate (considering the generally very high prices in Argentina). Great place to explore the area and enjoy the lake and forest. Hotel restaurant was poor.

Dear guest Thank you for your comments. My only regret is that you didn't explained more descriptively you reason to choose the word "poor" for our restaurant. It would allowed us to understand if something went wrong or why you think it's not at the same level of the rest. This is bemusing. Anyway, we're glad to see you enjoyed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hosteria Kaiken is located right on the shore of lake Fagnano (or Kami), one of the most beautiful corners of Tierra del Fuego. Its rooms are comfortable and full of light. They have private bathroom and great views. Surrounded by large windows with spectacular views over the lake, Kaiken's restaurant offers international and regional cuisine. A standout is the tipically patagonian roasted lamb, cooked by several hours of exposure to lenga-wood fire. Because of its location, right in the center of Tierra del Fuego, Kaiken is the perfect starting point for your end of the world adventure. Just one hour away from Ushuaia, buses linking the city and Kaiken several times a day make it also a great place from where to visit the southern-most city in the world. Open all year.

“ask for a room with veranda. while having a great ambience, the restaurant was gastronomically not at its best (very limited selection, fish was badly cooked, meat was rubbery), you may want to go to an alternative place in town.”
