This place is fantastic... A beautiful and peaceful estancia surrounded by stunning scenery. The place is warm, friendly and charming. The owner Alfredo is really helpful and made our stay a warm and welcome one... Would definitely recommend a visit to estancia La Quinta

At first we did not feel very welcome on arrival. We had booked accommodation in La Quinta for a bit of a treat at the end of a month stay in Argentina. It was a more expensive room than we usually go for, so we expected an even better welcome than where we stayed along our Argentinian journey, which was not the case to start with.

We had booked through Booking.com ... so we thought … but when we arrived, Alvaro (nice man, son of the owners) could not find any reference of that booking. After much infructuous searching on the very slow Internet, and phoning ‘The Boss’ (his father), he gave us a room at the price we had booked for, so all was well. We spent 7 nights at the Estancia.

Apart from the electronic keys that did not work, we had a nice stay, in a quiet comfortable room, with nice view over the horse or cows eating in the fields (although the only place in El Chaltén with no view towards the Fitzroy and the magnificent mountains). The bathroom was small, just to open the door was a bit of a gymnastic but well provided for with shampoo, soap etc. The room was clean, with plenty of hot water at the end of the day for a bath.

It was cold at night because the generator is switched off between midnight and 6am but knowing that, we still managed to charge our mobiles and computers at other times.

Because there is only wifi in the hall and breakfast room, all the guests were on the electronic devices in the morning, not talking to each other, a bit of a shame... Wifi is very slow in El Chaltén anyway. Don't expect to be able to search websites. The breakfast room had a big open fire to warm the air because of lack of heating during the night.

We ate twice in the historic house, the part used for the restaurant called ‘El Casco’. A very interesting setting with lots of info and photos of the 4 generations family who were the first settlers in El Chaltén. We had long conversations with Patricia (the owner of the house) and with Alvaro who was serving the food, all in Spanish and English. By the end of our stay, Alvaro was showing a wicked sense of humour, which was fun. We also had a good contact with Ornella (Alvaro’s fiancée), who was very jolly, working at the desk in the morning.

We had tea in the panoramic salon on the top floor, a comfortable room with sofas and books to enjoy, and an open fire. All very welcoming.

We luckily had a rental car to drive to El Chaltén, which was a few kilometers away. It was not a 4x4 and because of the holes in the dirt track, I was wondering how long it would take to have a problem with the tyres but we managed to get back to El Calafate without any problem.

Apart from Gutierrez (funny welcoming dog), a horse (under our window) and a few cows, we could not say that it was a working Estancia but we had a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Room with view on the front of the Estancia, so open views

The hotel is clean. The location is not in the town, will need transportation into town or stay at the hotel for dinner. Since we were in a group, we didn't use look into transportation options. It is good location for the surrounding attractions.

We had a great time in El Chalten and specially at Estancia La Quinta. It's a very nice and confortable hotel "out of town" (easy access by car), so it's very quiet and you'll enjoy a wonderful landscape view. In my opinion, the breakfast is a bit disappointing (which is very often the case in Argentina) but the diner we had in the restaurant was very good. Alfredo is very nice and all the staff is very helpful. We loved the "mate" initiation. Wi-Fi available.
