“Amazing stay”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We stayed at this hosteeia for a few days on our trip through Argentina. We arrived late after a tiring journey and were greatest by wonderful staff who were extremely efficient and helpful with our numerous questions. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hosteria itself relaxing and homely, and the location was beautiful! its a short walk to town, although we hardly went in as we were exhausted at the end of very active days! I Loved every minute of my stay and would recommend this to my friends and family.
Thank you!

The good:
+friendly staff who were extremely helpful with everything we asked
+tea service between 5 and 6pm
+close to the beautiful lake
+comfortable rooms

The could be improved:
-Our boxed lunch from them was awful--don't order it
-This hotel is further outside of town than we initially thought. To the town center is a good 10-15 minute walk. It is nice being removed from the hustle and bustle of town, but be aware that eating dinner out will involve a walk!

If you are looking for a home in Patagonia, book a room in Cauquenes de Nimez. Perfect location close to the Argentinian Lake, birds sanctuary just in proximity, walking distance from the city centre. The master and mistress of the house very hearty and helpful

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. Not everything was perfect. The rooms aren’t big, there is only one slow toaster for the whole breakfast room. But: staff and Juana in particular made our stay very personal and almost as ‘home’. We stayed in several hotels in Argentina but in none of them we felt as welcome as in Cauquenes de Nimez. Thanks Juana! And remember Juana: beautiful legs are ‘moeï biên’!

This was the perfect place for our needs in Patagonia during the summer season. Centrally located a couple of blocks north of the main street, the B&B is also close to the lakeside nature reserve, which invites for strolls in the morning or evening if you have a spare hour or two. The rooms are clean and functional and meet all basic requirements. The staff are incredibly knowledgable and helpful. Breakfast and dinner are delicious, most of all don't miss the nice afternoon tea with the home made treats! This is a home away from home and I would go back without a second thought!

We spent a few nights here on our trip in Argentina, the people were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable. The setting was lovely, over looking the lake and it was very peaceful, well apart from the wind we had on one day, but that was not down to the hotel! A short walk into town where there were lovely places to eat. A very enjoyable stay. Thank you.

I love this place,the location, the view over the lake and flamingos, the food and the staff - everything creates an amazing atmosphere. I wish I could stay longer. I did not want to leave El Calafate. This place is highly recommended you will not regret staying at Cauquenes de Nimez.
