“A gem at the top of the bottom of the World”
Reviewed November 9, 2006

The Hosteria Del Lago is a real gem--four star comfort, five star service, and a twelve-star location on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi--one of the most truly beautiful locales in the world. The building is in local style--vaguely alpine but with lots of exposed and varnished logs.

There's no kitsch--but there is a Belgian chef and a staff that will go above and beyond--not to mention amenities like an indoor outdoor pool, hot tub, and sauna--along with a pebbly beach on the lake. And the rates, at least off season ($70 per night) are extemely reasonable. The hotel will book tours (though the guides may not speak "ingles"). And the place is walking distance from two world class dining places--the Boliche del Alberto Steakhouse, and El Patancon, where Bill Clinton dined when he was in the region in '98.

If you've come this far, you deserve a great place to stay. The Hosteria Del Lago is that place.

  • Liked — Location, vibe, staff, facilities, outstanding nearby restaurants
  • Disliked — Limited English competence
  • Tips/Secrets — El Boliche de Alberto and El Patancon are outstanding restaurants...and in walking distance. Cabs are cheap so walking isn't required

This hotel was truly beautiful. All rooms look out on Lake Huapi and an island 1/4 mile off shore. It is an Alpine lake that looks like Lake Tahoe. The rooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water. We slept with the windows open to enjoy the cool air coming in off the lake of the lake. There was enough of a breeze to create small wind waves on the lake. These were lazily lapping at the shores as we slept. The hotel is about 8 kilometers from Bariloche town center. This was never a problem. We took taxis each way. The fare was about US $3.00 each way. Bariloche was a fun town to spend time in. Nice restaurants and lots of night life along with great shopping for tourists. We wanted another day, at least, to see everything in this place.

This was a tremendous hotel find at the end of a great trip.
