We stayed here for 4 nights. We had a lovely room with views over the valley. The website is deceptive, the staff DID NOT speak English, so arranging any other activities and even meals was difficult if one does not speak a reasonable Spanish. The location is stunning, but it is 40ks (80ks return) to the nearest good restaurant in Puerto Natales on paved road, half this distance on paved and gravel road. Again, we had to travel the 80ks return to just fill up the petrol tank! So you have to eat there and this is really expensive. As costly as the rooms. It's too far to go to Torres del Paine for a daily excursions and impossible if you plan to do some hiking - it takes 2 hrs at least on unpaved, difficult roads. So it's best only as a stopover to get to Torres. However, there are lots of lovely walks from the Posada and also we saw Condors flying over each night on their way back to their mountain home. The winds can reach a real velocity and I found them howling around the Posada very exciting, but my partner found it difficult to sleep and the wind speed unnerving.
It's probably best to stay in Puerto Natales for Torres del Paine and go up on the boats which do a day trip. If you want to hike, then it will be necessary to stay closer to the Park to do this.

The hotel is very cozy, sitting in the middle of a small valley in the paved road between Puerto Natales and Cerro Castillo (the road to Torres del Paine proper is not paved from Cerro Castillo nor from Puerto Natales) and featuring only a handful of rooms and a traditional interior with a big (shared) fireplace. It is a bit far away from the park (about 1 hour and a half from the park entrances), so it is not very suitable if you need to be at the park early for a trek, but it works well if you can be at the park at around 8am at the earliest and go to bed early the evening before.

There is no mobile coverage in the area, but the hotel receptionist will happily let you make calls if you need to. Also, there is no electricity grid in the area, and the hotel uses a generator and wind power. Electricity and heating are turned off around midnight, and can fail during the day (it failed the night of our arrival at around 10pm, and never came back until the next day). So, it can get really cold at night, but the bed is very comfortable, and it comes with a thick duvet.

Service is good, with all the hotel people being nice and ready to answer questions or to just do small talk. However, when we arrived we were supposed to stay on room 7, which is the best room (both in terms of views and size), but there was a mistake and room 7 was occupied for the night, so we were put in room 5, which is smaller and faces the road instead of the field behind the hotel. That is not a big deal, but room 5 is much closer to the generator, and when it turned on early in the morning it woke us up. We were moved to room 7 on our second night, and it was much better.

Price-wise the hotel is cheaper than the high end options in Torres del Paine and Puerto Natales, but it is still pricy, perhaps because of the remote location. It is definitely much more comfortable than a camping (it gets really cold at night in the area, even in late Spring), but probably much more expensive, too, although I do not know the camping prices. As mentioned in other reviews, there are no restaurants nearby, so eating at the hotel is the default option. The food is good, but a bit pricy for Chile, at $24 per person per dinner. I had lamb, the local specialty, both nights, and it was very tasty, although the first night it was a bit dry (the second it was nice and chewy). The wine selection is not very big, and a premium is definitely paid. Desserts were really good and varied, with wine-cooked pears, apple streusel, rhubarb parfait among the choices. Breakfast was included in the rate, and it very generous, featuring several types of bread, scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, orange juice, milk, cereals, yoghurt, and tasty home-made rhubarb jam.

So, summing up, as the title of the review says, a cozy country hotel with good food and service, but also pricy and with some drawbacks. I would give it a 3.5, but since I cannot do that, I will go for the 4, only if because most of the drawbacks arise from the remote location of the hotel, and because most good hotels in the area seem to be pricy.

So you want to go to Patagonia but are unable to foot the bill for the high prices in the Torres del Paine park, but don't want to stay at the cheaper options in Puerto Natales. You want to see the countryside, not the tourist traps. Tres Pasos is an excellent halfway option for this situation. The hotel which is much closer to a bed and breakfast is very accessible being right off Ruta 9, and the surrounding countryside is gorgeous. It is no wonder that Gabriela Mistral was able to be inspired to write her book Desolación here. In the back is a pastureland that runs for a number of kilometers to a few flat-top hills while across the highway is a ridge where condors live (and a short 45 minute hike past the pumping station will get you closer to them than you could possibly imagine).

The place is comfortable, but please do not forget that you are in Patagonia, so, for example, the electrical generator (and thus the wifi access) is turned off in the afternoon and late nights. That's not a problem, though, because you should be able to plan your day and sleeping schedule around those events. The restaurant is quite good, it's a menu of simple, fresh food that is standard Patagonian fare. Breakfast is ample and pleasant, and if you plan an early morning excursion, they will replace breakfast with a bag lunch for free. The common room ambiance is inviting and there is always a fire in the fireplace.

If possible, try to book room 7 which has the best views. Room 8 is also quite nice, but is closer to the generator which can bother some people. Again, this is Patagonia, so you should try to be aware that the conditions will be somewhat more rustic. The staff lives on-sight and is very friendly and helpful when you arrive. There are cats that will greet you when you step onto the porch. Go to the hotel with a rental car rather than using transfer companies which charge much more. Then you can drive to Torres del Paine yourself and save the exorbitant fees that a tour will cost. The concierge at 3 Pasos can tell you what the best things to see in the park are. She gave us an idea of where to go, what to see, and even where to eat lunch!

What a great setting, however in keeping with much of this area the manageress 'Claudia' will invest only the bare minimum in making you comfortable. Beware prices for dinner- $45 per person, (not stated anywhere), and the fact that they will bill your credit card used to secure the room before you arrive and WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION and even if you have brought cash to pay with. The area is let down by two things; the lack of repeat business- meaning there is no reason for hoteliers to look after you beyond the minimum. The second is that demand outstrips supply, so you will feel abusively overcharged in the whole Torres del Paine area. You will pay tope dollar New York prices for everything from coffee to dinner. A nice place, but basically terrible value for money.

Just came back from a trip to Chilean Patagonia, that included the "greatest hits" like the famous park but also more isolated places, hardly visited by any tourist: I can't be happier to have stayed in this Posada, placed 16 miles from Puerto Natales on an excellent paved road.
The friendly and cozy house has an astonishing view of Cerro Campana and a deep valley, it also has a huge chimney that invites you to sit by and enjoy a book or just listen to the wind. The rooms are big and clean, the bed was warm and comfortable and the breakfast is the biggest and more delicious I have ever had in any hotel I have been in my life. If you plan to dine there, you'll enjoy the fine cuisine of Viviana, which I recommend!
Besides the hotel and food, they offer horse back riding tours (which we didn't take) that seemed quite amazing, like riding to Cerro Castillo and Lago Brush.
Hella, the owner, is friendly and welcoming; together with Macarena, her daughter, will do any effort to make you feel comfortable. Plus, they can advice you to visit some really interesting places off the over loaded buses packed with tourists on the way to Torres del Paine.
If your expectation is the service and comfort of a typical hotel, this is not the place for you. On the contrary, if you want to experience the real Patagonia, with the wind, the isolation and the peace of the huge landscapes, this is a perfect spot to stay before heading to the famous places like Torres del Paine or Calafate.

Stayed there for four nights (family of 3). Very friendly hotel staff and good rooms. Location is very nice...unfortunately not next to the national park, about an hour away by car, but still a lot closer than Puerto Natales (a but under 2 hrs from park) and this is a very nice property with a feel of a countryside / estancias. Breakfast is Ok (surprisingly - only one egg per person) but dinner is great - though you will need to pay extra for it.
It’s not cheap but given prices in the national park it’s understandable. All in all a memorable experience

Very good alternative to the more expensive hotels in Torres del Paine National Park. It is surrounded peacefully, about 90 minutes drive to the entrance of the park, some parts not paved but easily accessible with a normal car. Cosy and comfortable bedroom with balcony and great bed. Superb breakfast and dinner with tasty wines. Fast WiFi. Power generator switched off in the afternoon and between midnight and 6AM.

For a hotel that cost $160/night, we expected a lot more.

Location: hotel is located about the same distance from Torres del Paine park entrance as Puerto Natales, which has a lot more affordable options.

Room: was smaller than even some hostels we stayed at for less than half the price. Bathroom shower was especially cramped.

Service: front desk service felt more like a salesperson as she kept trying to upsell us their $65/person set menu dinner.

Breakfast was decent though, although the staff doesn't seem to understand English much so got some orders wrong.

Apparently Gabriella Mistral stayed at this hotel at some point in Patagonia's Wild West days. We stayed three nights, mainly for its proximity to Torres Del Paine, although there are options much closer or within the park (although more expensive). Hotel Posada is about an hour from the park, and a bit closer to Puerto Natales.

This place has a lot of style. It is right beside the road (a highway, but pretty quiet) in the otherwise empty Patagonian landscape. The electricity only runs for a couple of hours in the evening and morning. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and prepared us a meal when the kitchen was closed after we were delayed getting back from the park.The electricity failed on one of our mornings, but I guess that's just something that happens in Patagonia!
