I really wanted to like this place, but there were a few too many hiccups. It started with my reservation - which did not seem to exist when we arrived - despite email confirmations. The reception was helpful and found us a room, but it was unsettling. After that initial helpful moment, the staff seemed to be indifferent to every...

Stayed for 2 nights during a tour of South America and have no complaints. We hadn't realised there was a pool (decent size) which was nice to go for a swim after a 5 hour journey by road. We enjoyed our evening meals (too tired to bother going into town), breakfast was average (some pastries seemed to be rather stale)...

I have traveled to my locations across the globe and have experienced many types of accommodations and services.

Unfortunately they couldn't do anything right at this hotel. We were there for 2 nights. Upon arrival you can see it's very tired, the wood framed windows had peeling paint and the lobby is tired and musty. The room we got had a view but was basically small and cramped. But the worst was yet to come. A day before...

Really, the best thing about Alto Calafate is the wonderful view from it elevated position from which you can see the town, the lake and the mountains. Some of the more recent reviews painted a pretty grim picture of the hotel but we found it better than that - only not worth 4 stars. Our room was large with masses...

The hotel was very nice but the location made it difficult to get to town easily. The hotel offers an hourly shuttle to/from downtown to help offset this issue. We were there during the music festival so being located far from town ended up being a good thing as the music continued late into the evening. The hotel had the...

Reviewed 1 March 2017

Overviewing the city and with an impressive view of the nearby lake this hotel is just OK. It doesn't deserve the four stars for which it is rated. Breakfast is just mediocre, service is poor, staff is indifferent, rooms are small but sleep quality is good. They do offer a shuttle into the city but not available late at night.

Poor service, restaurant was mediocre, staff indifferent, small room, expensive for what it is. I am sure I will not come back. The location is good but for the price we paid, we were expecting a much nicer hotel.

We do indeed expect more from a 4 star hotel and for the price we paid. This was obviously a beautiful hotel 10 years ago, but the lack of maintenance is visable over the entire property. We found mold along the pool sides and in the ceilings and the saunas was not working. The wifi was not working either, no...

We stayed for one night in this 4 star hotel. Nothing great, but nothing bad either. Small rooms, comfortable beds, good sleep quality. Average breakfast, but very good dinner. Main disadvantage is that it is outside of town, up on a hill, making it hard to walk downtown but providing great views of the valley. Of course they provide hotel...
