Doesn't look great from the outside but actually a comfortable hotel. Rooms can be a bit overheated especially in the annexe. Breakfast very typical of Argentinian hotels, tea and coffee, cakes, bread,ham and cheese.

We were robbed in this Hotel. It is pretty certain, that the guy who did it was a customer, who entered OUR room with the key of HIS room. When we confronted the hotel staff, it tourned out that they have known about this issue for some time, but didnt react. In the end we were lucky that we were...

Good continental breakfast - orange juice, tea, coffee. Tidy rooms. Good showers. Pool and sauna are ok. Wifi is good by El Chalten standards - remember this is a town in the mountains so wifi is poor everywhere!

Located on the main road of San Martin, it's about 10 mins walk to the bus station, a 10 mins walk to the start of Fitz Roy trek, and about 10-15 mins walk to the start of Torre trek. The staff was rather friendly, I arrived at about 6 am in the morning. Showed up at the hotel, and he...

The hostel was amazing, the rooms were really clean and comfortable, the stuff was really nice and helpful. The swimming pool is like a dream after doing trekking all the day and the restaurant inside the hostel is the perfect place to have dinner and drink some beers before go to sleep. I only give an advice, the hostel stuff...

The room was clean and the bedding was comfortable. Abundant hot water from the shower. Continental breakfast was excellent. The staff was friendly...

The hotel is located very strategically right where the walk to Mount Fitzroy starts. The hotel itself is average with bathrooms that are a bit better than average. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean, and a good size. Breakfast is also provided and again is average with cereals, breads, sweets, and a bit of fruit. I also had a light...

I booked this hotel expecting, based on their website, a much better service. Not only I did not get much of a customer service, but also found the hotel is in urgent need of some major maintenance job, specially in the rooms. Mine had mold spots all over the bed wall, as well as signals of repair works done for...

This is a basic hotel in a village that was just a climbers shantytown only a few years ago, so don't expect more than that. But this IS El Chalten, meaning Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, etc! If you know what they are, almost any solid walls will do! "Progress" is coming probably all too quickly to this area, and the...

“Wifi is spotty. If Wifi is important probably best to get a room near the lobby.”
 of 5 bubbles JSK52956, Feb 21, 2016 | Read review
“For a quiet room, get a room as far away from the front lounge/reception as possible to avoid the nightly social hour(s). Ask for a room with a bathtub If that is important (laundry?)”
 of 5 bubbles Quadracat, Mar 9, 2015 | Read review
“Seems like the rooms in the building next to the main building are better. Ours was 203.”
