“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is a very pretty hotel and in a good situation from which to visit the city of El Calafate. Unfortunately we were let down by the uncomfortable mattress and pillows on the bed. It was also rather noisy as the main street is outside and the two nights we stayed there were a lot of "boy racers" in town. Breakfast was also unmemorable.

I spent two nights in peak season, and Sierra Nevada Hotel was a very pleasant welcome in the nice little touristic city of El Calafate. The personnel was kind and professional, the room was very large and pretty quite, wifi perfectly working, breakfast ok and the location just excellent: right on the main street but just enough away from the noisy summer time night life. Highly recommended.

We stayed there for 3 nights 2 weeks ago and enjoyed every moment. Everything was fantastic from the room, staff and food and the area. It was one of the few places on our visit that it was sad to leave. I would definitely consider coming back to stay.

We spent three days there in the beggining of January. The hotel is situated 10-15 minutes walking from the city center. But there is a great restaurant next to it which I highly recommend. There is also a small bakery just across the street. Prices for laundry are good too. Breakfast is average, the fruit salad didn't taste fresh. You can use their bikes to ride around Costanera, a calm avenue by the lake. The down sides would be the carpet floors. As I am alergic that didn't work for me. My room in particular smelled like smoke and as it is located in a very green area be aware of insects and spiders in and out of the room.

Very good hotel, spacious rooms with classic furniture.Well maintained garden. Friendly staff, good location. The restaurant is ok but not contemporary. We had a pleasant stay. The hotel deserves 1 extra star in its rating !

I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is lovely, only a 3 star but really good service.A nice self-service breakfast and pleasant staff. It's a 5 minute walk to the shops, along the main road with a good local restaurant next door. Beautiful views of the garden, adequate sized rooms and a nice bathroom. Perfect for this cute little place.

We stayed for three nights in this hotel. It was a very quiet location with a pleasant garden. The room was spacious and light but sadly lacking storage. There were no shelves or drawers to store anything so we had to live out of our suitcases. Breakfast was limited and poorly serviced. Dinner in the restaurant was good on the night we ate there. The service was good. Although on the main street it is a good 20 minutes walk from the centre of town, and the footways where they exist, are in a dreadful condition. Best not to walk in the dark. It is definitely not a hotel for people with mobility problems as it is on a sloping site and as you move through the hotel to the bedrooms there are a lot of unavoidable steps.
If visiting again we would probably try a find a hotel nearer the restaurants and shops.
