Nothofagus Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 19 El Chalten B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Good location, although we had a car. At first I was hesitant about shared bathrooms but they were clean and we rarely saw any other guests. Breakfast was the usual and adequate but they should shave off the top 2 feet of the tall shrubs outside so guests can see El Chalten in the morning. They know the area trails very well and have good maps up on he walls. Of note is the owners' flexibility and kindness. They kept beer in their fridge for us although we realized later they sell it. When our adult son arrived unexpectedly at 10pm, New Years Eve, they allowed him to sleep in our room on the floor at no charge. We witnessed them deal kindly with another couple who had not brought enough cash and arranged payment another way.
Such patience and flexibility is not always the rule. We would certainly stay with them again if we return.

Room Tip: The downstairs area looked a bit more private, like having your own suite. The downstairs bathroom w...

This is a well located b&b with helpful owners. We had lost luggage on route and they were exceptionally attentive in assisting. We got lots of great tips on where to eat, trekking etc. I would have stayed longer - they are obviously very busy so make sure you book ahead. The only issue is their requirement to email, call and reconfirm the booking and no credit card. Travelling from Australia, this is a pain. Navigating argetina's phone system is not fun on mobiles. I guess the expectation is that everyone will have email access- but it would be good to make the booking and just be confident you only had to that once! Otherwise would thoroughly recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the peak!

This is a clean and comfy B&B...probably one of the nicer places right in town. You can choose a room with a shared bathroom, or one with a private bathroom. We payed a little extra for the latter. Our room had a view of Fitzroy in the morning, which was fantastic. Everything in town is within walking distance and this is no exception as it's just off the "main strip" but still reasonably quiet.

À 7 minutes walk from THE busstation, Nothofagus b&b offers very clean; good sized rooms. We had à double room and had to share à nice bathroom with à triple room. No complaints. THE breakfast is complete. Coffee / tea brown and white bread; juice/ yoghurtdrink; jam, cheese and ham.
When you arrivé by bus it stops at the rangerstation for 10 minutes and you get a quick explanation about El Chalten and walks. Also you can get some walkplans. Good organised. There is à good choice of restaurants. We tried à few and found Aonikenk (150 m. From THE busstation the best. Mathilde ,a small shop, at the big road, serves very good coffie and all shorts of tea.

This is a clean, basic, friendly B&B in an excellent location in El Chalten. We shared the bathroom and didn't find it inconvenient. Excellent value - I believe they only accept cash. They helped book our bus travel to El Calafate.

Just a general tip for traveling in Argentina - bring as many US dollars as you feel comfortable with because you can often get a 10-15% discount at hotels, restaurants, and shops by paying in dollars. Also, we were only able to get 1000 pesos at a time out of the ATMs (equal to $210) which really racked up the ATM charges. I wished I had known this before. Also, I brought an adaptor which said it would work in South America but it didn't fit the outlet. I suggest bringing your whole set of adaptors to ensure you have the right one (it turns out it was the adaptor labeled with Asian countries that fit the outlet).

We ended up staying at Nothofagus for a week while we waited for some good weather over the Fitzroys. It really couldn't have been better - our room was spotless and nicely decorated, staff were extremly nice and helpful without ever being pushy, breakfast was excellent and there is a lovely breakfast room/communal area with a view of Mount Fitzroy - when it emerges!

Room Tip: We had one of the rooms with a shared bathroom - each bathroom is only shared between 2 rooms so, if...

In this patchwork town this hostel stands out. Built by the very friendly owners, large, roomy rooms and bathrooms. Lovely views from everywhere. Good location and advice on walks and places to go for a meal. Good value for everything!

Room Tip: we had a 1st floor room going up the staircase to the left.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We think, as many other people, that traveling is one of the best things in which we can devote our time and invest our money. And certainly, we also share the taste for incredibly beautiful places, near or far away, in which nature takes amazing forms and which may be enjoyed in very different ways. For that reason, we chose one of the most wonderful places to live and to enjoy with every guest his experience in El Chalten, a unique place. We started to build our house in 1999. It took some time, and in november of the year 2001 we finally opened B&B, were we offer tourists comfortable rooms, with private bathrooms or shared bathrooms, warmly decorated, and carefully cleaned. Nothofagus B&B is a small place, it only has seven rooms. Therefore, it offers our guests a very quiet space and enables us to provide to each of our guests a caring and personal service. We look forward to see you here. Eva and Gerardo. ... more   less
