This hotel is beautiful! Amazing view from the window in our room, staff was helpful, spa is a great plus, rooms are spacious. The breakfast was delicious and had a ton of options. Hotel is up a decent hill but an easy 10 min walk to the main street. I would highly recommend.

Lovely hotel in Patagonia
Probably the nicest hotel in the area but would also stand up to international standards. Restaurant is quite good and the room and bathroom were nice. About a 5-10 min walk from town. Staff was very friendly. Less than hour drive to Perito Moreno glacier.

Just an Ok hotel. Need Spanish skills.
In general, staff at hotel has very limited English speaking skills. Various requests can be hard to come by. Location is 4 blocks away from Main Street where all shops and restaurants are located.

Nice hotel
Hotel located on top of the hill. Room was nice, clean bathroom & comfortable bed, but lighting in the room's a bit too dark. Nice view of El Calafate town from hotel room. Breakfast was excellent. Hotel staffs were friendly & helpful. Elevators were the only negative thing. I didn't feel safe when using them.

Felt like luxury but we didn't pay for it.
Very pretty hotel with an amazing lobby. Its a short walk up a hill from the bus stop. Room was quite large and comfortable. No AC but that seems to be the way in Patagonia. We were fine when we opened the windows. Hotel staff didn't book a massage that my husband requested so that was disappointing, but other then that they were helpful and spoke English. Breakfast was one of the best we had in Patagonia and our lunch at the restaurant was nice as well. Its a small walk to the main street (about 5-10 min) so if you don't want to walk you may want a closer hotel, but we didn't find it to be an issue. The area seemed safe and we had fun walking around El Calafate. Felt like we were staying in a luxury hotel but not paying for it. May be because we went in the off season. They also had a pool but we didn't try it out. Looked nice though. Wifi was good.
