Room is tiny and cluttered with useless cute furnishings. Shower basin fills with water and overflows on the floor in 2 different rooms. Bathroom had such a strong moldy odor that we had to keep the window open all night to breathe. Sheets were too small for the matress which left you sleeping directly on a stained mattress.

My partner and I stayed here 4 nights whilst visiting the area and it was by far my favourite hotel of the holiday. Clean with comfy beds, good showers and a decent size room. The breakfasts were the best of the holiday too, all home made with no preservatives. Packed lunches were decent although the bread was never great (but... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. We love the smaller hotels and the personal feel. It is very comfortable, very clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The small restaurant has wonderful views and excellent food. Location is near the delightful small nature reserve and the lake yet only 10 minutes from the main street. The only sound... More

The Cauquenes de Nimez is ideally situated 1/2 mile walk from the bustle of downtown and all of it's tourist attractions. Located a few blocks also from a bird sanctuary we enjoyed our morning walks or afternoon bicycle rides (the hotel provides for free bicycles). The rooms were very comfortable and large and the beds were comfortable. Unfortunately the breakfast... More

I stayed here for 2 nights while (of course) visiting the Glacier. The whole hotel smells like lavender and they play relaxing spa music in the lobby so you feel relaxed as soon as you arrive. The breakfast is all homemade breads, cakes, and jams. Although it´s a bit of a hike to town it´s about a 2 minute walk... More

We stayed for two nights. The staff were very helpful and organised airport transfers, taxis, packed lunch, trip to glacier and laundry. The rooms were small but nice. Breakfast was simple with bread and jam mainly. My kids were disappointed but what there was, was homemade and very nice. Had afternoon tea overlooking the lake which was lovely. (No charge)....

Although a bit outside of town (you can reach the main street, Ave del Liberador, with 15 min of walking), it was a great place on the shores of Lago Argentino.
