About 1,5km from the busy little downtown, this place is perfect if you don't mind to walk and like to be a part from the busyness. Rooms are just great, with a full kitchen, microwave, toaster, fridge and all you need. The breakfast is served in your room and the wi-fi works fine. Staff is so friendly and helpful! We...

We stayed 3 nights in December and enjoyed Los Ponchos. The apartments are spacious and well-equipped and everyone was super friendly. There are a few tradeoffs to be made though. As other reviewers say, it is remote from town. Just a 10-15 minute walk, but in El Calafate wind/weather, that can be long, especially after a day of glacier trekking....

Clean, good service, modern. On the edge of town, but only a five minute cab ride to downtown. Very attentive and pleasant staff. Breakfast is made to order. Our room was the attic and had low ceilings, but slept five, as well as having a kitchenette, dining table and TV. Very good for the area.

We arrived to Los Ponchos on a very early fight from BA with tired and hungry kids. Although our room was understandably not ready, we were provided an after hours breakfast and our room was prepared as quickly as possible. Cecelia Maria and Martine went out of their was to help us. The best service we received in Argentina!

We stayed at Los Ponchos for two nights in November 2014 in support of a hike at the Perito Moreno glacier (natch). The owners went out of their way to help with waylaid bags (the Aerolineas baggage handlers struck the day we flew there) and other items. A very nice, family-run collection of small apartments. The view of the Lago...

We stayed three nights late November. There are many items previously mentioned on other reviews that I won't reiterate ( narrow staircase, distance from town, etc.).The pros were -staff stored our bags while we did an overnight excursion to Estancia Cristina (which was incredible BTW). - walking distance to 2 restaurants. - clean. There were many things that have caused...

This is a great option as a boutique hotel stay and it is reasonably priced too. The aparts are clean, comfortable and spacious. We really enjoyed the breakfast which is completely home made. The hotel is in a nice setting, with good views of Lago Argentino. The service is very good too, they were all very helpful and friendly. Town...

This hotel is a hidden gem. Slightly outside of the main drag downtown, but totally worth it. The staff was above and beyond and incredibly friendly. We had a friendly greeting from the owner every day and felt like we were home away from home. Rooms were clean and a nice size. Also, for all of your excursions you will...

My wife and I stayed at Los Ponchos in El Calafate during our honeymoon and during our visit to Perito Moreno glacier. I could not give Los Ponchos any higher marks. They were one of the highlights of our trip! Everything from the AMAZING rooms with incredible views of the water and the beautiful sunrise that could be seen every...
