We spent one night at Kalken and we were happy of our choice. The hotel looks great and all the communal part are cosy and well maintained. Our room was comfortable and warm but very basic, no kettle, hairdryer or fridge. Breakfast was a bit disappointing when compared with the way it is publicised. There was all the basics but...

During my stay there was a long wait at reception to check in, many people complaining at reception about different things. There was no wifi available. The water in my room was cut off at breakfast time whilst i was showering with shampoo in my hair the male receptionist said this happens every day and told me to wait until...

Lack of communication among the staff made me and my bf sleep in separate beds. We booked the room a month in advance only for them to tell us there was nothing to be done.they didn't even bother to give us a late checkout or something as a compliment. The managers were rather rude about it and extremely unhelpful. There...

On the plus side, we found the service friendly, the location is close to the bus station and the room large and clean. Breakfast is a buffet with a variety of sweet cakes and biscuits and some cheese, ham, yoghurt. On the negative: it is quite expensive (even for touristy El Calafate), the wifi is poor and it seems that...

We really didnot like our stay at this hostel. At the day we had check-out, we stored our backback behind the reception. When we got back from the supermarket, our backback was gone! It took us 8 days to get it back! If you stay here, we would advice not to store your belongings! The staff did not care so...

Lovely place with a great room with a balcony. Well furnished room with a clean and big toilet with a bathtub. Breakfast was a huge spread of breads, cakes, pastries, choice of fruit juices, cereals, cheese, ham, jams, cereals and fresh fruits. We booked the room from the free wi-fi internet provided by the hotel to get a cheaper price...

Good for traveler who ask for low price options. Location close to the centre of El Calafate. Parking area available. Good breakfast, available from 06:00h. Very nice place. My room was a little bit cold.

This hotel is really basic and they were still in remodeling phase. There was a strong smell of fresh paint and really no atmosphere. Service was not attentive but internet was working. There was quite a bit of noise from the street around the hotel but it is well located

A two night stay booked through booking.com. Slight confusion when we arrived late at night as the man who was on the front desk gave us a higher rate then what we had booked online. It later transpired that most hotels in Argentina have 20% tax on top, this was in the small print of booking.com so beware. The hotel...
