Posada Fueguina
Ranked #33 of 51 Hotels in Ushuaia
Reviewed March 10, 2009

Really enjoyed this very quaint hotel overlooking the harbor in Ushuaia. The room reminded us of being in a ship with it's dark wood. Very clean and quiet. Lovely people. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Ushuaia.

Great place 4 blocks up hill from port (good way to exercise after those hefty meals at Freddy's downtown!). Very comfortable and clean. Nice view accross Ushuaia Bay. Definitely recommended; have stayed there twice now.

We stayed here over christmas 07 with our two children aged 5 and 7 years and were pleasantly surprised at the high standard of the rooms here, also the grounds of the hotel, which are probably the best kept in Ushuaia.
The quadruple room we were allocated was extremely clean , spacious and well appointed, and you had a great view if you were over 5'10' and standing up (due to the high windows). We really couldn't fault anything when we first arrived at the hotel.
However our stay was marred by the lack of hospitality we received . Horacio, the owner, brusquely showed us our room and then disappeared for the next 4 days and was replaced by a lady who never introduced herself to us even though she was clearly in charge while he was gone and our only point of contact.

Breakfast -described as a buffet on the website is nothing of the kind. We were served tinned fruit salad every day followed by very average rolls and ham plated up before they reached the table. No choice, no smiles, absolutely no chance of serving yourself (I learnt the hard way!).

So devoid of charm were the staff that on Christmas morning they didn't even wish us a Happy Christmas. Our kids were devastated as they had received a visit from Santa and were dying to tell everyone about it. Just the same old tinned fruit salad and rolls. We were not impressed.

Considering the price of Posada Fueguina we really felt cheated. There is a picture of a bar in their leaflet and on the website but it was never open and all the bottles were empty! Nobody was ever around to ask for a drink anyway.

We felt that the hotel overrates itself. It is more like a very well appointed hostel than a hotel. I asked if i could get our laundry done and the female hostess just shrugged her shoulders and said no. Laundry is listed as a service in their website and leaflets.
It was apparent that during the day i.e. after breakfast and until the next morning there was no chance of any room service, and nowhere to get even a cup of coffee.
To cap it all we pre arranged for a taxi to meet us on arrival in Ushuaia, and discovered upon checkout that they had charged us $60-double the going rate ! This is daylight robbery.
Unfortunately that left us feeling completely duped by Horacio and co.
Go and stay if all you want is a clean room but don't expect any goodwill whatsoever.

This is a lovely small hotel that is about a 3 block steep climb above the main street. However, the reward (besides exercise) is wonderful views of the city, harbor, and mountains.

We really enjoyed this hotel. I am certain it would have a higer place in the standings if more people had reviewed it. We had a large, sparkling clean room with a view of the port. We were 3 blocks to town. Horacio speaks very good English, and the free Internet is always welcome. Though we did not require it, the shower and toilet were accessible. Great stay!
