Reception was friendly and helpful. Kitchen and menu was well selected and reasonably priced. We loved everything about it. The hotel is ten minutes with a taxi to the city. It... More

It's a nice place on the edge of town, close to the lake with views of the lake. Nice open airy room. Clean and functional. Nice big lounge area, excellent breakfast. Glad they had... More

This place is perfect to enjoy the view on the lake from the big windows in the rooms. A bit outside El Calafate, but providing transfer to town, it has a good restaurant and it offers a good breakfast too. Personal is kind, available and nice. Rooms are big and fully equipped. Suggested!!

This is a really nice hotel with an amazing view of Lago Argentino. It is located a bit out of town, but it is a beutiful walk by the lake to the centre. Some restaurants in town provide shuttle service with pick up/drop off at the hotel. Really helpful staff, clean rooms and good breakfast.

We stayed three nights in this hotel on Lago Argentina. Room 12 is upstairs and has a lovely sitting area overlooking the lake. Good breakfast buffet. Staff friendly. It is on the outskirts of town.
