What a fantastic view onto the lake from our room ! And such a relaxed and grand ambiente with a lot of space and a very special charm of architecture and interior design. And very friendly, helpful and personal staff that made us fell at home at once. And good food! Everything was perfect although we had our only day of pooring rain during the whole trip here. We would have loved to stay longer!!! And for sure we plan to return next time we come to El Calafate.....

With a stunning site on a bluff with view onto the large lake, and close to the glacier, La Estepa is a very good place to stay in El Chalten. It is on the very outskirts and thus removed from the congestion of main street, has very nicely appointed rooms, an excellent kitchen, and we enjoyed very much our stay.

Just outside the city and with an amazing view on the water (we stayed in a room facing the lago) this place is a "no brainer" that i would recommand to anyone staying in el calafate.
Staff is helpful and "familly style".
Rooms are perfect.

We loved it here - the warm welcome, the food, the view, the friendliness, - everything ! It felt like a warm hug from good friends - we were so sad to leave.
I loved sitting in the dining room, sipping wine, watching the lake. We loved having the kids around - make for a bright and happy experience.
We would stay again - basic accommodation - but clean and comfortable - who needs more when the staff are so amazing.
The best place we stayed in South America - I would go again!

Room Tip: I think all the room have views? Upstairs have grand views.

The hotel is located just out of the town, has a fantastic view, the rooms are wide and elegant as the common spaces,all in wood with big windows on Lago Argentino.
Nice and very gentle owners that can help you for any need

This is a nice place with a good location and great lake views. A little out of town, but that's okay! The main room is very nice, and the meals/breakfast were great. Very accommodating hosts. Highly recommended- email me w/???

We stayed here for 3 nights in the middle of out travels around Argentina. What can I say!! from the moment we arrived we were greeted by a warm welcome from Augustina and 'los ninos' - who were all more than happy to recommend activities in the local area to fill our days - all of which were fantastic and made our trip all the more special.
The bedrooms, whilst basic are comfortable, spacious as warm - there is plenty of hot water (fantastic after a long day trekking on the Glacier!!) and amazing uninterupted views across Largo Argentina. The 'common areas' are spacious and we felt comfortable relaxing at least one of the evenings of our stay with a bottle of wine enjoying the view from the 1st floor lounge.
I can only agree with previous reviews, this is a fantastic find in Patagonia and I would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone visiting El Calafate.
