I stayed here for two days as part of a Gate1 trip and was very satisfied. The hotel is only two blocks from the Main Street. There are many shops and restaurants nearby. The room was very nice. Free wifi throughout hotel. The buffet breakfast was very good. Homemade muesli and small cheese biscuits were outstanding. I ate dinner here...

We stayed here after several days of hiking in Torres de Paine. The room was double the size of any hotel I've ever stayed in. It is the only hotel room I recall where I walked in and audibly said "wow." The bed was large and comfortable, the furniture and layout charming. The bathroom mirror (if the light is on)...

We arrived here very late and quickly went to the restaurant to grab something to eat. We had a nice quiet room, but it had been set up as twin instead of a double. This was rectified for our second night. Breakfast was average, but more than adequate before our excursion. Upon our return we used the Jacuzzi, but just...

We only stayed here a couple of nights, wish we had had more time. The building is gorgeous, the staff was very helpful, storing our luggage for 5 days for us. They provided an early breakfast for us, because we had an early departure

While located a couple of blocks from the center, it is still within walking distance of downtown and there are a number of good restaurants on its street. The breakfast is good enough and better than most.

Room was clean and spacious. Bed was comfortable, but the pillows were a little hard (but not terrible). Common areas were very nice and the breakfast had much to choose from. Excellent Hotel overall.

My wife and I had a great stay at this hotel in El Calafate. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was wonderful. The breakfast buffet had very good coffee and lots of other tasty food. And it is located just off the main avenue and isn't too loud. We recommend it.

This is a comfortable, clean and cozy hotel. If you are looking for a hotel to be the highlight of your trip this isn't the right place; if you're looking for the perfect spot to rest and recoup after active days in Patagonia Kosten Aike is ideal. We stayed while doing Big Ice and Upsala Kayaking (both highly recommended). For...

Following a series of disruptions to our travel plans we arrived at the hotel a day late, and there was some confusion with our booking, however the woman at the counter was incredibly helpful and professional - offering to take up the problem with the agent and quickly finding a room for us. We had an enormous suite which was...
