This hotel was recommended by the friends with whom we were travelling, who had stayed there before, and it proved to be a very good selection. The reception was extremely efficient and the room was well-appointed, clean and comfortable - as we were going on full-day trips on both the full days we were in El Calafate, these were the main criteria, together with the ability to have a look around the town on the day we arrived and the morning before we departed. From this last point of view the location of the hotel was excellent, two blocks off the main street (which could have been quite noisy) yet within walking distance of all amenities, and also with nicely shaded grounds. In addition the location meant that the coaches for the trips picked us up at the door.
The breakfast room/restaurant is across the street, which was fine in the good weather with which we were blessed, but would have been less pleasant in a cloudburst!! The breakfast was fairly good, but certainly not exceptional, and although we did not use the restaurant for dinner, we did consider it one evening, but found it so empty and lacking in atmosphere that we went elsewhere. The only other point I wish to make is that we took packed lunches on our two trips, the first one provided by the hotel and the second by a little cafe (La Lechuza) on the nearest junction of the main street - the latter was significantly more palatable and only just over half the price!
