Reviewed January 10, 2012

We spent 4 nights here in Jan. 2012. The room was basic but clean (with cable TV and free Wi-Fi.) Breakfast buffet was about average.

The staff were very helpful. Most speak at least basic English, and they made multiple phone calls on our behalf when we had problems with our car rental and when our return flight to B.A. got cancelled due to a volcanic eruption in the Andes.

Our only real complaint is that the towels are small and thin.

Do not worth the money
I do not want to use harsh words but I think this hotel gain it.
It was relative expensive without a reason
The rooms are small not so clean and our room the face the street suffers from laud noises.
The breakfast was reasonable but they charge us 2 pesos for hot water.

Stayed here as a base for Peninsula Valdes and Punto Tombo, so weren't too fussy about having a view (which this hotel does not) or hotel amenities, but we took to calling it the Grim Madryn very soon after arrival. We had to change rooms the first night due to waking up in the morning to really smelly water (sewage?) all over the bathroom floor. When we told the front desk, they said they would see about it but didn't allow us to move rooms until later that evening. The walls were paper thin, we could hear someone opening a plastic carrier bag in the next room. It also reeked of smoke, despite being a non-smoking room. The beds were very old, with a block of foam for a pillow. The hotel staff was somewhat helpful, but they were very cold and did not show any of the hospitality Argentina is famous for. We're honestly not that fussy but this was really terrible.
Good points - It is only one row of houses back from the waterfront and close to restaurants, but so are many other hotels in the area. It's a good deal compared to other hotels in the area but still very expensive for the quality.

I enjoyed this hotel which I found on Trip Advisor. It is smallish but very clean and modern. location is good for walking to some local restaurants and the water is one block away. My room and bath were great as was the cable TV. No wifi except in the lobby-so that was a bit of a hassle. Not much wifi available in the town either. The staff was very helpful although English was limited. I speak Spanish at intermediate level so no problem here. They helped me arrange 3 different day tours for whale watching and the penguin colony-all were enjoyable! Breakfast was included. There is a very affordable van from the airport in Trelew and they arranged to have me picked up for the flight back to BA. Be aware that there is a 20% tax in addition to the quoted rate. Still a good value for me-and very safe!

Puerto Madryn has a lot of hotels- just many of them are not available to book on a hotel consolidation website. This place was depressing. We paid $80 US per night for a room with shoddy furniture (two rundown bedstands, chair and a tall tiny card table?) and bed. No safe or hairdrier. No internet center. It looks like they updated the lobby and eating areas which look pleasant, but ran out of money to redo the rest of the place. The elevator was out of service and the downstairs bathroom was flooding. Breakfast was standard: tea, coffee, milk, medialunas (local croissants) and bread, jams, dulce de leche, thinly sliced ham and cheese which are tasteless, liquid yogurt, juices and corn flakes. Nothing special but fine. We ended up staying at a hotel called Hotel Apart Patagonia just a block up the street for the same price and really preferred it. Much more updated furniture. And all the amenities the last one lacked plus a bathtub! Breakfast was the same and staff was more motivated and helpful.

I stayed there for 2 nights and really enjoy the room and service. The people are very nice and helpful. I don't speak spanish so I send them emails to ask around the trip and transportation before hand. and actually get timely and valuable feedback about everything. So I just book 2 day's trip from them and have a very good weekend.

Besides, the room are very clean. It's small, but considering the low price, I would say it's a good value. Highly recommended.
