Some definite pluses and minuses for this very attractive hotel. Located directly across the street from the bus station, it is very convenient, only a 5-7 minute walk to downtown and also within walking distance to Laguna De los Tres trail. Our family of 4, including 15 and 13 y.o. boys, stayed for 2 nights here in early April.
I found the lounge and dining area to be very attractive and our dinner, cooked and served by our very proud Mendoza native chef was excellent. Breakfast was a little more spartan, but was fine. The rooms were also very basic, with essentially a bed, drawers, a closet, a bathroom and a safe and not much more and it is a walk-up, so if that is an issue, request a 1st floor room. The staff was very friendly and when we had an issue with our trekking company, they did everything that they could do to resolve it and when they couldn't, gave us very workable suggestions to work around it.
One issue that was minor for us (although it certainly could have helped with the trekking issue), is that the hotel's wi-fi was down, although it seemed that this was an issue around town, since I saw numerous hand-written signs on a number of doors saying the same thing.
There were a surprising number of hotels (including many newer looking ones) in El Chalten, but the location near the bus station, the building itself and the restaurant combine to make Hosteria Senderos a fine choice.
Finally, I must state that it was rather odd to watch the NCAA basketball final in Spanish on ESPN on the lobby TV of a hotel in Patagonia. Almost beats watching the 1989 final in a jai-alai fronton in Miami!!!
