The staff at Solares del Sur is really friendly! However, the hotel itself is located out of town and there is not much to see/ do in the surrounding area. This place is most suitable for someone traveling on a low budget and do-it-yourself attitude. You will have a kitchen in the rooms, so you’ll be able to cook your own food (and do the dishes ;) The breakfast is very simple, just bread and cereal, but of course you can get additional things from the grocery store. The restaurant Quidu is ok but lunchbox something to avoid.

We were travelling in Argentina for 3 weeks, and were enchanted by this place that offers a 2 story appart, close to downtown (20 min walk). the breakfast is serve the night before, so you could take it whenever you want. It gives you the opportunity to have a fridge and have whatever to prepare a lunch of anything to drink. We enjoyed our stay very much and we certainly recommande this place for itself and certainly for the guys there that are friendly and very helpfull for any questions or tips.

We stayed in one of the two storey apartments that has a balcony accessible from the main bedroom with a spectacular view of Lago Argentina! We were very pleased with our room that contained a kitchenette with mini-fridge so we could prepare breakfast that was delivered to our room the night before. That was very helpful to be able to eat when we wanted so we could make our scheduled tours on time. We received excellent service from one staff person (was not given his name) in particular, who spoke english very well and helped us arrange taxi service when needed and provide us with information we needed to tour downtown El Calafate. We ate at their restaurant 'Quidu' one night while enjoying another beautiful view of Lago Argentina. The food was very well prepared and portion sizes were adequate. Overall, I would most definitely recommend this hotel to others especially if it is a wonderful view you're looking for. If you're looking more for close proximity to downtown, this may not be the location for you as you would require taxi service.

Room Tip: Choose an Apartment style room with second floor balcony instead of a cabin to enjoy a magnificent v...

I agree with all the good reviews of this hotel. Had a lovely stay for two nights in one of the cabins and it was spotless, cozy and a welcome break from hotel rooms! Breakfast brought to cabin in the evening which meant we could sleep in and eat when suited us. Owner very helpful and friendly. Restaurant and bar onsite. Would definitely stay here if we visit again.

We stayed there at one of the cabins.
A lot of things already written, so I will summarize. We just loved it. Some of the most beautiful sunsets plus a Quidu restaurant at the hotel, makes the stay a highlight.
Highly recommended.

Loved staying here. We felt like it was an incredible deal to have a cute cabin all to ourselves for such a good price. Breakfast was delivered the night before and the staff were very nice. The only down side is that it's a bit out of town. But if you're willing to walk or get a taxi it's over all a beautiful location overlooking the lake.

We had a heck of a time finding this place because the address provided was a block off its actual location; darned difficult to find after dark, especially if they don't answer the phone to help (which they didn't)! (Hint: seek a phone book.) Laundry service was great. Loved the spacious cabin, kitchen table, double bed room, twins.Great for small family. Warm. Good garden, nice view. Good parking. Breakfast breads somewhat stale; appreciated ham and cheese the second day. Coffee press needed repairing, but coffee was great.

Room Tip: The one-storey cabins are great.
