We spent three nights at the Xelena in late December. We were on the first floor near the pool. We had great views and a very comfortable room. The pool is divine. The breakfast is bountiful, we did not eat at the restaurant for dinner, but did enjoy a delicious casual meal at the bar. One day we picked up a packed lunch for our excursion which was great. The hotel is a little out of town, we did the walk, but can feel far if the wind is up. The shuttle works just fine and taxis are cheap and easy. Given the stunning location and amenities, I would stay here over closer in to town.

Room tip: We had a great view, pretty sure you can't go wrong. Our room was next to the pool which may invite more traffic, but we didn't notice.
Date of stay: December 2017

We were there in peak season Dec 21 - Dec 24 2017. People were very nice. We were on tours all throughout so did not spend much time at the hotel. Restaurant is good if you don't want to go to town to have lunch or dinner but wud recommend going into town as there is more variety. Their packed lunch for the tours was a lot of food and more than adequate. They even provided us with Argentinian wall adapters free of charge as long as you return them. Down side is they are somewhat further from town but they do have a shuttle service. One can walk into town but it would probably be a mile along the lake front. Overall good value for money

Room tip: Great views but about a mile or so away from the main street in town

We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Xelena. We had a nice-sized room. The bathroom had a bidet and a narrow jacuzzi tub. It was a little small for 2 people -the door opened up against the toilet. The food at the hotel was very good, and the staff was very friendly, but very few of them spoke English. I didn't mind trying to communicate in my very limited Spanish, but if you don't know any Spanish at all, it could be difficult.
Our room had a lake view. The level of the lake was low due to being blocked by the Perito Morena glacier, but that is not their fault. The location was convenient for visiting Los Glaciares National Park. I would stay there again.

This hotel is a bit out of the city center but has shuttle hourly (15 min drive). Our room had a nice view, room was large and the pool area outside is nice and pleasant but that were all the pros. The bathroom is small and dated, there were only cc 2 plugs in the wall, wifi is free but extremely poor, the heating is also done by the split air conditioner which is very laud and does not work properly. In early morning you surely wake up due to the laud walkie-talkie discussions in the corridor by the staff. As said the pool area is nice but you are not allowed to have any alcoholic drink there, we wanted to have a beer and it was prohibited... The breakfast is average to a 3-star hotel and the waiters are not too friendly. You heve to pay extra for a normal espresso which is far from being an Italian espresso. The food/sandwiches at the bar are ok on the other hand. This hotel was probably a super modern one 10 years ago but it would need a strong facelifting and also more customer-focused staff.

Room tip: Rooms facing the lake has nice view
