Kosten Aike is a great place to stay in El Calafate. It is in town, so you can walk everywhere, but on a side street so it is relatively quiet. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and spacious. The restaurant is good for breakfast and dinner and the staff is very attentive. They have a great spa upstairs, but...

A very busy hotel with multiple tour groups staying. The lobby was often busy with people waiting for excursions, and it was sometimes hard to find a seat in the breakfast room (though turnover is quick). Service was fine, if not particularly warm. We saw lots of people with welcome drinks but were never offered one ourselves. Room was large...

I spent 3 nights here with 2 female friends. We were provided with a lovely welcome drink and then shown to our bedroom. We had booked a 3 bedded room but were faced with a double bed and a single. We get on well but none of us relished the idea of sharing a double bed so the management moved...

We had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at the Kosten Aike Hotel in Patagonia and found the accommodations to be spacious, clean, and with all the extras that makes a vacation more comfortable. Breakfast was superb; the food was varied and delicious. The front desk was outstanding – eager to answer our questions, ensure our comfort and converse in...

Understanding that there are many tour groups in El Calafate, and in this hotel, we still found it to be a very good value and really had no complaints. It was convenient to the center of town but a few minutes walk away, giving one a little space between you and the hustle and bustle. The staff was extraordinarily patient...

Wooden, beautiful and friendly hotel, clean and well situated in a secondary and quiet street. Free Wi Fi and they provide you with many games for the afternoons. A complete breakfast. The only inconvenient was that they started cleaning the rooms next to mine and I was waken up

The hotel is in a perfect location, just a couple very short blocks away from the main street and the very popular ice cream shop. The included breakfast was decent, and service overall was very friendly. However, the room we stayed in was pretty run down, the bed was saggy and uncomfortable, and the building was not meant to withstand...

Very clean, very spacious, very nice furniture, comfy beds, great bathtub for soaking in, with an excellent breakfast that includes homemade breads. We were also able to order eggs and bacon with breakfast. The only problem was that the temperature in my parents room was too warm (in November they couldn't turn off the heat) and there were a lot...

We are a family of 6 doing a 2 week trip in Patagonia. While there are great Estancias to stay at in the El Calafate area we wanted a central , in town location for this part of our Patagonia stay. So if you are not looking for the Estancia experience this is the place for you. It is very...

I've heard that el Calafate can be a disaster, and perhaps the many and varied tour groups that stay here says something positive about the place. I found the room small but adequately clean, and the lobby inviting, the breakfast more than serviceable, the wifi spotty, but the location is convenient to the main strip. Don't be fooled by the...
