Hotel Belgrano
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We stayed here for a night as part of a package booked with Chalten Travel and we really wished we hadn't. The hotel doesn't seem to have any kind of no smoking policy so our room stank of cigarette smoke, there was a toilet along the corridor which didn't seem to have been cleaned for some time and the room wasn't very clean either.

The general sense of grimness was really cemented by the unfriendly manager who never returned our greetings or expressed any interest in whether the guests were comfortable, possibly because he knew they weren't. The only thing that wasn't dire was the bed which was relatively comfortable.

If you're travelling Route 40 then I suggest checking out the other hotels in Perito Moreno - I doubt they can be worse than this place.

We stayed here on our 2 day Route 40 bus trip from El Chalten to Bariloche. We booked dorm beds when we bought the ticket because we thought it would be easier, but wished we'd bothered finding somewhere else. The place is very run down, there was a hole in the bathroom floor where you could see all the water from the shower pooling, paint falling off the walls, old mattresses. The dorms are big so chances are you'll get a snorer, and people were talking right outside the room at night and early in the morning. The one positive was the restaurant actually had quite good coffee, surprisingly! Breakfast wasn't included with the dorm price though. Other people had trouble finding somewhere to stay if they hadn't booked as everything in town was full, but one group managed to do a home stay for the same price as our awful dorm by asking at the tourist office.

Disgusting place! You shouldn't go here. Some buscompanys recommend this place but there is a far nicer hotel just a few meters ahead in the streat!! The rooms were very dirty and the sheets were not changed! Also a lot of bugs in the shower.

Room Tip: don't go here!

0 star hotel, dirty, old, small, creepy, etc, rooms & dormis.
The place to never sleep but you cant guess when you travel via ElChalten Travel this hotel has a deal with.

The breakfast is also as expensive as it is tiny.

Prefer other hotels less than 500m away on the same street towards downtown.

If you travel via ElChaltenTravel, dont book a room here with them...

Room Tip: Dont go there, that is the worse place to sleep in Perito Moreno. Rooms or dormis, all are unaccept...

We stayed one night here doing the 2 day Ruta 40 bus trip with Chalten travel, since this is the recommended hotel and the drop off/pick up point. We were told the rooms were basic but clean and that no other options in town really existed. They are not clean - they are utterly filthy and the rooms stink (musty, cigarette smoke, grease). It is no wonder that they make you pre-pay in El Chalten because we definitely would have not stayed on being shown our room. The bedding made my skin crawl - the bed spread was threadbare and filthy. Underneath the bedspread the blankets were covered in hairs and stunk, clearly not been washed in years. The only saving grace was that the sheets seemed clean - so we slept just with these and were freezing cold. The room is tiny, with only one power point. Bathroom is functional but dirt splattered up walls and mouldy shower curtain. Smoking in rooms is permitted - dirty ash tray provided. If this was a cheap room it still wouldn't be good enough, but at 350 pesos it's disgusting.

The owners have you over a barrel; having bus loads of pre-paid tourists shipped in every day so clearly there is no incentive to improve things. We stayed here as we thought it couldn't be that bad (it was) and that it'd be too much hassle to find somewhere else convenient for the bus pick up the next day. But in fact the town is tiny and there were a number of much nicer looking hotels just a few minutes walk down the main road from this hotel (we had a lovely meal at one). So if your doing the same Ruta 40 bus journey then I would urge you not to stay here because other options do exist.

Can't comment on breakfast (not included) as we declined to eat here based on the state of the room.

We stayed in this cozy hotel in Perito Moreno for 1 night on our way from Bariloche to El Chalten along the (in)famous Ruta 40.
It is a little bit of a hassle to organize your accomodation in a place like this (if you want to pre-book your hotel) so we chose to go for the easy option and book the Belgrano as part of our bus trip package with Chalten Travel. There are a few other hotels in Perito Moreno, but as far as I know you can’t book them on the website of an online travel agent.
Hotel Belgrano is an old-style family run hotel. The interior hasn’t changed for ages. So we had f.i. a room with a carpet that was at least 25 years old. You can barely turn around in the bathroom (you had to stand in the shower to be able to use the toilet) which has not been updated neither for many years. The beds are fine.
So the quality of the room is not really great, but I would still advise to stay in this hotel if you accept some of the mentioned negative points, because it has a good atmosphere. You can eat in the restaurant between the locals who are sitting at the bar or have a simple diner with their family. It all adds to the feeling of being far from the beaten paths which is the charm of travelling on the Ruta 40.
The only ‘downside’ to this hotel is that they offer wifi (free), which isn’t adding to the “middle of nowhere”-feeling.

Dirty, small, everthing is ugly and smells very bad. Very expensive, for the same price you had very nices lodges on other towns. We dont feel safe here. The owner is not honest.There are other hotel in this town. For us this area of the Ruta 40 is not worth it. Better take the road throught Puerto Madryn you will save a lot of money and time.
