We spent three nights at Los Hielos while in El Calafate and enjoyed it immensely. It is small, quiet, a little out of the way (a good thing in El Calafate), clean and comfortable. The rooms were excellent, with a nice view of the water (including flamingos!) and the staff very helpful. In addition, it is a great base for visits to the Perito Moreno glacier and Estancia Cristina (both of which are extraordinary experiences), especially because it is the last, or one of the last, stops for the buses and vans headed out of town. Being the first stop on the way back makes a real difference when coming back to town after a long day of trekking or exploring. Our only complaint with the hotel was the food. Breakfast was fine--breads, pastries, cereal, fruit, etc.---but the lunchboxes were only adequate and dinner not very good. But, don't come to Los Hielos to eat (there are several surprisingly good restaurants in the center of town, only a 5-8 minute cab ride); come for the quiet and comfort.
