Posada Karut Josh
Ranked #3 of 36 El Calafate B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Highly recommended little Posada in El Calafate. Frederico the owner was so kind and helpful. Rooms are simple and cozy warm. They provide lunchboxes for tours - invaluable for trips out and we have a very good home cooked Italian dinner one night. The location is slightly out of the centre, but only a 15 minute walk which felt safe and well lit.

Room Tip: The upstairs room with a lake view is lovely

We recently stayed two nights at Posada Karut Josh (with hiking in Torres del Paine in between). Claudia & Federico are fantastic and were instrumental in helping us to arrange transfers and make our plans work within a tight timeframe.

The hotel is situated on a quiet street but still an easy walk to town. Breakfast is great and the rooms are cozy and comfortable.

The help with logistics and restaurant recommendations are worth their weight in gold.

For the price, it's an incredible value! You should stay here :)

We stayed 3 nights at Posada Karut Josh, a very homely B&B, set back one street and a short walk from the town centre. The owners, Frederico and Claudia, and their daughter Irene, work extremely hard to make the business a success and the results of their dedication are clearly evident. Frederico and Claudia are Italian and great hosts. Evening meals here have an Italian theme. Frederico will speak to you with great enthusiasm about the choices, and will then concoct something delicious at a very reasonable price. We felt no need to eat anywhere other than here. Breakfasts are simple but adequate. There is nothing elaborate about the furnishings but everywhere is comfortable. Our bed in Room1 nearly filled the room, leaving not a lot of space to move around, but it was a very big bed and so comfortable, and a clean bathroom, we did not want for anything else. We would certainly recommend Posada Karut Josh to anyone looking for a reasonably priced staying inEl Calafate.

Really great value - location is fine, about a 10 minute walk to the town center and bus station. It's really close to Pura Vida. Rooms are very simple, cozy and clean and there are plenty of warm blankets when the temperature drops. I can see why other reviewers comment that the rooms could use upgrade, but for my husband and me, they were perfectly fine and comfortable as is. We prefer the fact that this B&B had one of the best prices for rooms in Calafate.

Breakfasts are good, with homemade yogurt, bread, homemade cakes and lots of spreads, as well as plenty of coffee and tea. Service is really outstanding and friendly, Federico is very nice and extremely helpful. He answered a number of questions before and during our stay.

We went on the Big Ice Trek during our stay and needed to bring lunch and we're really glad we purchased the packed lunches that are offered here instead of pulling together our own lunch from the supermarket. There was a TON of good food (in fact we ate the leftovers for the next day's lunch) that fueled us through the trek.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a great value and are happy with the simple comforts of a nice clean room and very friendly hosts.

My boyfriend and I stayed here while visiting El Calafate to view the Perito Moreno Glacier. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend this B&B to travelers. The value was unbeatable and the service was pleasant (the owners were very nice and gave us detailed drivibg directions) We also enjoyed our breakfast which we had in the dining room with a gorgeous view of Lake Argentina.

The Posada reminded me of a European ski chalet, an excellent safe location with wonderful hosts. The rooms were clean, the breakfast basic but sufficient. I had a delay on my flight and was well looked after here. Thank you. I would recommend this for solo travellers try and request a view over the mountains at the back.

The Posada in terms of structure is very basic, but is clean, quite. Probably the rooms will need some upgrade. The added value is the service with the boss, italian guy, very friendly and kind with everyone. The breakfast is good and the view on Argentino Lake is upstanding. If you are looking for a simple, clean hotel this is a good one.
