Stayed here a total of 4 nights. 1 night at the beginning of our Patagonian trip and 3 nights at the end. What I Liked: The location is great - right in the center so it was easy to get to the main drag. They let us check in early so we were able to visit the glacier. Breakfast was...

Excellent location, only a couple of blocks from main street. On arrival a very nice fruit juice is brought from the bar and check in is very easy and efficient. Wifi is excellent and room spacious and comfortable. However, power points for charging aren't plentiful. Drinks and food in the comfortable bar are reasonably priced and a good buffet breakfast...

We walked into our room and thought we were in a suite as it is huge. Very comfortable bed with a large lounge area with a sofa and desk too. The bathroom has good amenities with a hairdryer and there is a safe in the room. No water is supplied but the tap water in Calafate is good to drink....

Everything about this hotel was fine. Very convenient to shopping and restaurants. The only negative for was that our room faced the street and a bar across the street played music until very late. There is a terrific ice cream shop two blocks down on the main Street.

We only had two nights in El Calafate and this hotel served us extremely well. The room was very comfortable and, as we had been advised, we requested, and were given, a room at the back to avoid the noise of the bars opposite. Very helpful and patient reception staff.

Architecturally interesting, the hotel is comfortable with a lot of wood. I was reminded of a lodge in Austria ! The rooms were comfortable and large. Free wi fi was provided. Well situated in the centre of the city and so easy to walk to restaurants. We had the best meal of our trip in a local restaurant ( see...

The hotel is in a good location, the room's are large and well appointed, they are also clean. Unfortunately for us we were above the kitchen and on the road side. So at night there was a lot of noise from traffic and the music restaurant across the road and in the morning much noise from the kitchen underneath us....

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.

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...
