A little gemPosted Feb 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is a short and inexpensive taxi ride out of town or a 30 min walk but well worth the effort. The view from our bedroom was spectacular. The self contained cabin was clean and spacious. The staff friendly, helpful, and spoke good English. The attached restaurant served great food and had the most amazing view of the lake - why eat in town?

Excellent value.Posted Jan 18, 2013
Pros: Lake view and competitive price.
Cons: Not good soundproofing.
Location: 5 minutes drive from town center.
Very reasonable 2 bedroom apartment hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful lake view from the main bedroom and balcony. Good restaurant. Walls are thin, so you hear noises from another bedroom and adjoining apartments. Kitchen is well equipped. 15 minutes walk from town center, or 5 minutes drive. For the space, location and service, excellent value for money.

Quaint and romantic, with the friendliest staffPosted Dec 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
This cozy little place is a gem that shouldn't be missed. The cabanas are clean, spacious and offer outstanding views of Lago Argentino. The service is what truly sets it apart though. Sergio and Martin take such good care of the guests, from recommending and booking tours for local attractions to the late-afternoon delivery of the next morning's breakfast tray. The only small drawback is the moderate walk to downtown, which is only a $5US cab ride if you prefer that. We loved it here!

Wonderful & Beautiful!Posted Nov 23, 2012 on Hotels.com
Solares was our favourite hotel in Argentina! Martin & Sergio are both so helpful and have all the info you need about visiting national parks/glaciers, estancias, car hire, etc. They book everything for you and they don't overcharge. We stayed in the lovely 'honeymoon cottage' which had a little balcony with a view of the lake - took some beautiful sunset/sunrise pictures from there. A simple breakfast was provided in our room everyday (juice, milk, tea, coffee, cornflakes, bread, cake, butter, jams). Solares can also provide you with a good packed lunch if you are out for the whole day (or you can buy food from the many supermarkets in town). Have dinner in their restaurant Quidu - it has huge windows overlooking the lake & town, and good wine and food (Patagonian Lamb!). The only downside is that it is a little far from the centre of town and it takes about 40/50 mins to walk (you could take a taxi) to the restaurants and supermarkets. At night, there are no lights on the main road (pitch black) and there is no sign showing the turning for Solares (there is a sign for Hostel Fresnos which is on the same street). So remember the landmarks when you walk out for the first time! There is a confiteria and a small supermarket on the walk into town. Use VES airport transfer bus to and from the airport as they will drop you directly to your hotel. I'd love to go back because Patagonia is beautiful and Solares Del Sur is a charming little place. I hope it always stays that way.

Enjoyable stayPosted Apr 7, 2011 on Hotels.com
We really enjoyed our stay at this complex. The timber cabin was very relaxing and comfortable. It was nice to have the extra space you don't get from a hotel room. The receptions staff were very friendly and helpful with booking excursions. We were very impressed with the restaurant menu. Packed luches were also available for excursions days which was great. The complex was 25 minutes walk to the centre of el calafate but had a footpath and was a safe area so we didn't mind. Would definetely stay here again if in the area.

Great staff, comfortable roomsPosted Nov 21, 2010
We are a family of 5 and we stayed here for 3 nights while seeing the surrounding area. The staff was so kind and helpful and always went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. They were very helpful setting up a tour for us to see the glacier and gave us a variety of options of what we could do. The cabins are large with 2 bedrooms upstairs and a kitchen, sitting area/table and bathroom downstairs. Breakfast is included, which is delivered the night before. Not the best food, but there is cereal and milk which was fine. The cabins are a bit outside of town (25-30 min walk) so it can be a hassle to go back and forth for dinner/groceries, but the front desk will happily call you a cab which costs around USD$4. We would usually walk one way and take a cab the other way. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others.

Lovely PatagoniaPosted Jan 13, 2010
Nice, quaint hotel located a little outside El Calafate. Great service and the people really helped me with the tour packages I closed ahead of time. Good thing I did before I arrived as many of the great tours (Big Ice & Glaciares) were sold out. To go to El Calafate and not partake in these tours would be a crime. Hotel is not close to the city, but with cheap cabs this is no big deal. We walked it in about 20 minutes. We spent our New Years at the hotel and the restaurant provided a great menu (and great wine). Breakfast was delivered the night before to the room, so that we could eat at our leisure before we headed out for the days activities. Reheated coffee is not the best option. Hotel could offer a little more variety at Breakfast, as we got tired of the same break, cake everyday. Our cabin (cabana) was very clean and offered two rooms upstairs and a dining room/tv/kitchen down below. The cabin temperature was ideal and kept out the cold. The hotel staff was excellent and were always available to help. Going back to El Calafate, I would return! FYI. Tour packages only accept CASH, so make sure you are prepared...
