We were stunned by the standard of the cosy log cabins which provide everything you could need for a comfortable stay. El Calafate can be very cold so the cabins have efficient heaters, which you can set at a level comfortable for you. The cabins were spotless and breakfast was delicious; all at a reasonable rate. The Staff were charming and helpful at all times. I could live there!

Santa Monica Aparts offers wonderful accommodations at an amazing price. The log cabins are spacious and provide ample space for sleeping and relaxing after a day of hiking. The rooms were very clean and well-maintained. The staff were extremely helpful with setting up dinner reservations and other requests. The property is located very close to the center of El Calafate so you can easily walk to restaurants and to the bus station. I can't wait to go back!

Great Location: In the city center...you can walk to all restaurants and bus station.
Comfortable and clean room : good sleep quality except sometimes it can get noisy as it is close to the main street.
Staff: Just excellent and soooo helpful..They helped us arrange taxis, told us where to eat, we left our bags there for a day and they suggested it on their own..very sweet people..one person spoke broken english so used google translate to understand and convey things.
And it is priced so well...

This is our first time in El Calafate. We chose Santa Monica Aparts from Tripadvisor. When we arrived at the Aparts, the sperate wooden houses were the most impressive impact upon us. They are the dream house from the fairy tales I read in my childhood.
The recepsionists are lovely who made us felt at home. Especially the beautiful Colombiana, Yeniffer, who always to be helpful.
The house which we stayed is No.5, is clean and is seperated into living room with a kitchen, bedroom and restroom, equiped with almost everything needed, even with heeting system in each room. The garden is pretty with apple trees, pear trees and pine trees which only attracts people, birds as well.
The Santa Monica Aparts' location is excellent. People travel to El Calafate with a reasonnable bugget would love it. We are planning to stay there in winter to see the snow in El Calafate,

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road are quieter.

This was our second trip to El Calafate and our second time staying at The Santa Monica Aparts. The kitchens are spotless, windows all around the house with cute garden views and separate bedroom allows for guests to share your space for a light bite. TV is in bedroom; would prefer it in living room.
Very quiet at night and yet in the heart of town.

Room Tip: We were in cabin 5, well off the road and private.

We stayed in a wonderful cabin (actually 3 of them since we travelled back and forth from calafate)- and enjoyed every minute.
Everything you read about the cabin suites the expectations and even more. Also Argentinian Breakfast was great.

You'r gonna love it!

Another special word about wonderful Yenifer Gonzales from the reception, who helped us book some excursion reservation, bus tickets, took care for our special needs and a big thank for her lovely smile- she is an asset to Santa Monica.
