“Great Hotel Great Hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2009

My wife and I had a great room here. It was a very comfortable apartment. It was kept spotlessly clean and tidy, it also has the most comfortable sofa ever! The hotel is located just off the main street on the east end of town which is perfect for walking to the bars and restaurants. The best thing though is Susanna the owner, her patience with us as we were frequently late for breakfast was greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Davie

A very friendly management. We had a big apartment. Good for four people with a furnished kitchen. Everything you will need is there. After travelling in Argentina for almost a month, arriving in this place is heaven. Steak is good in Argentina but after a while you get tired of eating in restaurants and in Lindavisat I can finally cook my own meal for a change.

They can also arrange for your tours at a reasonable price.

Overall, if I have to go back to El Calafate again, I would stay in this place.

We stayed two nights at Linda Vista - the Korean owners were very pleasant and helpful despite not speaking great English (which surprised us a little since their email responses had been in perfect English). Room was basically furnished but pretty clean (few cobwebs and dust). Fine as a base for a couple of days, but probably wouldn't have wanted to stay there for any length of time - just felt a little souless. Good location on the edge of town.

I loved everything about Linda Vista Apart Hotel. Firstly, the rooms are divided up into lovely cabins, which the owner, Susanna, told me have all been renovated and you can tell the upkeep is fantastic. The rooms and bathroom are very clean and it feels very homey and relaxed. There were five people (including me) and we stayed in one of the larger suites- two beds in a loft upstairs, one bed in the living area, and a double bed in one of the bedrooms on the ground floor. It was a fantastic deal, considering we practically had a whole cabin to ourselves for the weekend.

While the rooms and hotel were a great place to stay, the most valuable and wonderful amenity was the service. Linda Vista is a family operated hotel- family operated meaning even Susanna's (the owner) daughter would help us with tours, restaurants, and directions. They are a wonderful sweet family and Susanna helped us with EVERYTHING: tours to do in El Calafate, airport pickup arrangements, restaurant suggestions, and lovely conversation. For instance, on our last day at the hotel, my friends and I woke up too late and missed the (great) continental breakfast so Susanna BROUGHT a freshly cooked breakfast to our room. While I cannot speak for other travelers and assume that the hotel will provide services like this to everyone, this is just an example of how much Linda Vista cares about service. What is certain is that it will definitely be a lovely and special stay for anyone if this family is at the helm.

All the best, Linda Vista!

The owners organised a taxi to meet us at the airport which about 25Km away, this is not cheap but includes the return trip to the airport. The apartments are positioned about 5 minutes walk away from the town centre.
The apartment itself was excellent. The main room had two single beds, a TV, table and chairs, a fridge and cooking facilities. The carpeted bedroom had a double bed with ample storage for clothes etc. A small hallway led to the bathroom, shower and toilet. All the fixtures and fitting were functional, modern and clean. We were all pleased with what we found.
The service provided by the Korean owners was friendly and helpful. They were always ready to provide advice on trips as well as what could be found in El Calafate itself. One morning we asked for an especially early breakfast and this was provided so we could embark on our planned trip on time. The room was serviced and cleaned each day while we were out.
The Perito Moreno glacier is the main attraction although the Glaciers National Park provides many opportunities. A trip to nearby El Chalten and the Fitz Roy mountain is advised.
I would thoroughly recommend this venue to other families or couples who want a little luxury without paying an extortionate price.

My wife and I stayed at Linda Vista hotel for 2 nights (end of March 2009), part of our honeymoon vacation.
we found this hotel following a recommendation we got from friend of us stayed there few months before, and we were so happy to stay there as well.
the location is great - just five minutes walk to the center of Calafate, and near by the lake. the hotel isn't on the main road so no noise from the cars.
the room was nice. we didn't use the kitchen facilities so nothing to say about it.
the service from the hotel owners was amazing. she helped us with all the activities and good recommendation for restaurants (don't miss don Pichon).
there is computer with free internet where you get breakfast, but it didn't work when we where there.
i highly recommend this place after we tried few others places before we get into Linda Vista, and the location, cleanliness and its price is great.

Wow! It´s maybe the best hotel in Calafate.
I travelled Argentina for 2 months and stayed Calafate for 3 weeks.
This hotel is apart hotel which has full kitchen and large living room.
The room was very clean and the bed was large and comfortable.
It is located the lakeside of the famous Lago Argentino and only 4 minutes away from town center on foot and 6 minutes from main bus terminal on foot.
From the airport, it takes 20 minutes by car and the shuttle bus will take you to the hotel door.
The hosts are very kind and arrange all kind of tours in Calafate.
So you don´t need to wander around to find other travel agencies.
I think this hotel is perfect for family traveler and couples.
I and my wife planed to stay here 5 days but extended our stay to almost 3 weeks in this hotel.
I highly recommend to stay this lovely hotel.
