We planned to stay here for one night on our arrival in El Calafate before moving on elsewhere. When we arrived, the young lady at the desk was friendly and welcoming despite limited English, and we had an immediate warm feeling towards this little guesthouse. Our room, number 1, was basic but very clean and comfortable with an amazing view over the lake. The bathroom was well presented, with toiletries, and again was very clean. The beds were comfortable. After a good night sleep, the breakfast was a nice surprise. The owner makes his own breads, yoghurts, cakes and jams for his guests. Of course, the breakfast does not have the huge selection of a larger hotel but was truly excellent in quality and more than adequate.
Having checked out of the hotel, we had enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to extend and stay there for a further two nights and use this as our base for exploring the park and the glaciers. This request was accomodated immediately and we returned our bags to our room! We did not eat an evening meal at the posada, but these are offered and looked very "home made" and good quality. We chose to eat in town instead at parrilla's and "Pura Vida" restaurant.
In summary, this is not a luxury hotel, nor does it claim to be, but it is a lovely, friendly family-run guesthouse that I would love to stay at again one day!
