The hotel is not near to the centre but this is not a problem. From the lobby as well as from the dining room the view of the landscape is amazing. All the staff is always at your service to help you also to arrange trips or other stuff. We have no hesitation to advice this hotel.

We felt very comfortable staying here. If you have to find the hotel on your own, it could be a challenge as the sign is not well stationed. Its high up a gravel hill that makes it difficult to get into town, a 20 minute walk. The food there is great, and we love Marasita the cute young chef. She's a friendly as it gets and if you build a relationship with her, she'll take great care of you at breakfast the next morning. The rooms lack air conditioning and I didn't sleep under the sheets at all. If that is a minor detail for you, you will enjoy your stay. All the staff is helpful

Choose this place for the great views and good value. We found the breakfasts to be typical, and even above average, for hotels in Argentina.

It is a little difficult to find if driving yourself, but El Calafate is a small place - it won't take too long to find the turnoff to go up the poorly maintained residentail dirt road. A short drive/taxi/20 minute walk to the center of town.

The rooms are fairly chain-style, but clean with nice bedding. The young workers are not especially knowledgeable of the area (did not know basic open/close info on Perito Moreno), but they were willing to learn and research in recognition they needed to get better.

Wi-fi did not reach our room, but we could get it by going to the dining room or central lounge with the wonderful views. They had a computer set up in the lobby in a nice semi-private nook.

You cannot drink the water in the rooms, and they charge you quite a bit for bottled water. I was disappointed that they did not have an option to fill a water bottle from a central dispenser like other Argentinian hotels. We bought a few 4L jugs from a supermercado for our family.

While I've detailed a number of weaknesses, we had a wonderful time in El Calafate, and none of the weaknesses dampened an overall wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Stay on 2nd floor - lower floor has kitchen noise

My wife and stayed here for 3 nights by accident since we showed up here without a reservation. Actually, we first arrived here on the shuttle from the airport upon a recommendation from another guest on the shuttle. Even though they had no rooms available the first night, the clerk kindly drove us in her own car down the hill to another hotel who had an availability that night. Even though it was more expensive, it was not as comfortable, the view was not as good, and the room was smaller. So we returned the next day for 3 nights since we liked this hotel so much more. The lake views were priceless from the hill top. Breakfast was typical, nothing special. We walked to the town (about 20 minutes) although you can take a short taxi if you don't feel like walking. Everything was very clean, the service was quite excellent and I think an excellent price value compared to similar hotels closer to town. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Comfortable room with good bed, outstanding view of Lake Argentina, nice staff. Doesn't matter that it is out of town, but it is exceedingly difficult to find and is poorly signed. Says it has internet but the wireless doesn't reach my room. The room would normally get four circles but the bathroom smells like a septic tank and the staff's response was to leave the exhaust fan on, no offer to change rooms. Breakfast is mediocre. Room missing many small amenities, like a pad of paper and something to write with. Though it came at an ok price via online booking, I would not stay here again.
