We stayed here for 3 nights in April of last year. The staff was very friendly and helped us book the Big Ice and a taxi for departure. It is a larger sized hotel, as seemed to be pretty common in El Calafate. The rooms were spacious and clean, but not the most comfortable place to hang out. The walls...

Hotel was comfortable and service was attentive, but it has a bit of an odd layout, and our room on lower level had view largely obstructed by a building on adjacent property. Restaurant was very accommodating. They encouraged us to let them know 1-2 hours before we wanted dinner, and we showed up asking "what can we get right now?"....

The staff are nice but the hotel is pricey and far from Downtown Calafate. The hill you have to walk until you get to the hotel entrance is insane, so you better consider it if you don't drive your own car. The food is overly poor, bad and VERY expensive. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are tiny and...

Nice view to the lake, warm atmosphere in the lobby and at the bar, staff ready to provide advice about excursions, large and comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast, including several delicious home-made cakes. The problem is that the hotel is located in the middle of an unurbanized area and the way down to the center is not pleasant (even though a...

The staff are fantastic here especially Sebastian at the bar he is so welcoming and insightful. The rooms are run down, the curtains in our room had holes in them, the shower head broke on our first night. The curtains are all dark so you cannot have them closed or the whole room is pitch black, it would be nice...

Very comfortable small hotel with super friendly front of house team. Breakfast starts at 6:30 which is amazing if you are planning to be out and about all day and have an early pick up for your tour. Nice selection and great fruit. Definitely worth booking a lake view room, even if you don’t spend much time in the room,...

The hotel is located atop a hill overlooking the lake and the town. The town is located within 10-15 minute walk... the walk back might be tougher since it is uphill. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are large and decorated along the local flare. Bathrooms were large... in fact the rooms were large overall. Breakfast is complimentary and...
