For a sportsday in the Andes Mountain, this hotel offers the best of what it can offer. That's why I put an excellent even if its an old Hotel, built in 1989 and with the standards of this time. The managers do a huge effort to keep up the facility with a surprisingly excellent kitchen, warm service and personalised guestrelation....

By almost any measure, this place would normally rate a 2, only because it's old and worn down. Fundamentally, it's clean but the rooms and furnishings are from the 60s and 70s. What makes this is the truly outstanding food, exceptional wine list and warm hospitality of Steve and the current staff. I stayed here on both the front and...

I've been in Ayelén last week and I was very happy with what I found there. First, the rooms are much more spacious and better than they look like on the internet (the photos need to be replaced!). Second, the owners and management staff are very attentive and helpful. Third, and not least, I was very grateful for the way...

We stayed at this hotel as part of an organised trek of Aconcagua with a group made up of people from Australia, England, Scotland and the USA. Not our choice - that was in the hands of the trek organisers - but there is no choice in Los Penitentes from what I can tell. Now I've ended up rating this...

We stayed 2 nights in Ayelen Hotel de Montana (very stylish!) - it was between the season (or something like that), almost empty and restaurant was closed, but Steve asked cook to come and make dinner for us late evening. Food was excellent, of course argentinian steak! He told us where to go and what to see in Mendoza, pity...

This is a hotel with an excellent design. The common areas are beautiful. The rooms are simple and aging, but the new owner is renovating the property and provides some of the most attentive service that I have encountered anywhere, regardless of price. He is from London, so this is a great place for the English speaking visitors to the...

We could think of nothing else but the hot showers and soft bed when we were on the plains of Aconcagua. The food was excellent and very reasonable wine and champagne.Steve our host was very friendly and helped us during our stay.

We stayed there in summer on the way to Aconcagua as a group of about 20. Service was great! Food was great! Prices were right. You can tell it is a nice place that got run down, but is on the way back up. Current owner Steve, a great English bloke, has had it for a year now and is...

Far away from civilization and nestled in the foothills of Andes, Ayelen is home away from home. This is no luxury resort and you should not expect any in the town. But if you are looking for basic comfort, great food, cozy rooms and a sun glazed lounge with amazing views, this is the place to be. The host and...

I frequented Ayelen as part of my Aconcagua climb during Jan/Feb 2013 with a fellow climber. The service that Steve and his team provided was second to none, and extremely supportive during a slight 'admin problem' that occurred prior to our ascent, and subsequent 'lock-in!' due to 25 landslides along Ruta 7 on return from Aconcagua. Their friendly, charming demeanour...
