Just ok hotel. Rooms are very noisy, all the sounds from the lobby and hallway reach loudy to the room. Breakfast was nice, many sweet options. Pool is nice, not very big though. There wasn't towels in the room which was a bit of a minus, you can get it from the reception by asking but still, it would have...

We rented a small apartment here for New Years Eve. The only things good were the nice front desk person who worked hard to fix our natural gas leak, and the fact that it was well located at the trailhead leading to Madre y Hija and other magnificent hiking. If at all possible, stay somewhere else. Here's why... Online pictures...

Overall room and bathroom are very comfy and clean, though a little old. Staff is helpful and friendly. Breakfast has many options and is good. Hotel has a quirky decor, but it didnt bother me. Location is great.

The best host ever (the guy at the reception): he gives you the best advices for walking and everything you need to know! The location is perfect; nearby the hiking path and popular restraurants. The rooms are very noisy though: you can hear hear everyone honing to swimming pool and waking up. Great shower lots of heat water!

Doesn't look great from the outside but actually a comfortable hotel. Rooms can be a bit overheated especially in the annexe. Breakfast very typical of Argentinian hotels, tea and coffee, cakes, bread,ham and cheese.

We were robbed in this Hotel. It is pretty certain, that the guy who did it was a customer, who entered OUR room with the key of HIS room. When we confronted the hotel staff, it tourned out that they have known about this issue for some time, but didnt react. In the end we were lucky that we were...

Good continental breakfast - orange juice, tea, coffee. Tidy rooms. Good showers. Pool and sauna are ok. Wifi is good by El Chalten standards - remember this is a town in the mountains so wifi is poor everywhere!

Located on the main road of San Martin, it's about 10 mins walk to the bus station, a 10 mins walk to the start of Fitz Roy trek, and about 10-15 mins walk to the start of Torre trek. The staff was rather friendly, I arrived at about 6 am in the morning. Showed up at the hotel, and he...

“Wifi is spotty. If Wifi is important probably best to get a room near the lobby.”

“For a quiet room, get a room as far away from the front lounge/reception as possible to avoid the nightly social hour(s). Ask for a room with a bathtub If that is important (laundry?)”
