The best part of this place is the laid back hospitality offered by Javier, the owner. Javier was so welcoming and interesting to talk to. His English was good enough to have wide ranging conversations, and when I was using my faltering Spanish, he was very patient. I found myself missing this guy when I left.
His B&B is located a short walk up a hill off the main road. I had a room on the second floor that afforded a nice view of the street below and the bay off. The room was basic and without a private bath, but it was clean and with wifi reception. The shared baths were somewhat small but adequate. No problems with being cold, as the heat was pumping all the time. I actually had to crack a window a few times to get the temperature right.
The included breakfast was ok: bread, sweet crescents, apple, yoghurt, tea or coffee. A Spartan type breakfast seems to be the norm in Argentina.
Location is good. You are only a 5 minute walk to the waterfront, where the boats leave, and where the central information office is located. You’re a 2 minute walk from the main drag, where many of the offices are for the tour operators.
When I was there, it wasn’t uncommon for young Argentinos to be racing around the town in their cars during the wee hours. They all seem to drive small four cylinder cars, like Honda Civics, with modified exhausts that are very, very loud. I was woken up nearly every night by these spirited youth driving their noisy machines. But then again, nothing you can do about it, as you’re at the end of the world!
