Pros: Staff, inexpensive laundry service, great breakfast and evening meal
Cons: Clearly advertising options for payment. Cash only is OK so long as I know before I book.
There were three things that detracted from an otherwise wonderful experience at this hotel. Firstly, the location on expedia was incorrect so I thought I was booking somewhere closer to the centre of town. Whilst a 15 min walk isn't too long, it feels like forever at the end of an exhausting day. Secondly, the room and bathroom were a bit small (had to organise my suitcase on the bed) and thirdly there were problems with the credit card machine so it was quite stressful knowing if we were going to be able to settle our bill as we didn't have much cash with us and the ATMs in town kept running out of cash). The above said, if you are travelling with a car the distance won't be an issue. And if you don't have a car then make sure you book into the restaurant when you make your reservation so that you don't have to walk into town for a meal at the end of a tiring day! The restaurant is closed Sundays but open other days. It is a set meal and appears to vary nicely from day to day so you could eat there every night and not get sick of the food. There is also complimentary afternoon tea which is a nice touch!

Nothing fancy but it met the needs. 10 minute walk to town/ bus stop. Rooms large. Garden pleasant. Breakfast ok. Staff friendly but no help with organizing tours. Would stay again.

A perfect stay

Located next to lago Argentina this is the perfect place to stay. A small hotel with very nice decorated rooms. Wjo doesn't want to have breakfast with o view on the flamingoes. But most of all, the service is one of the best I've ever experienced and trust me, I travel a lot. The personel is not only outstanding in their service but also interested and very friendly. I had a perfect stay and would defenitely go back if the possibility is there. Thank you very much! Wilma

ottimo per visitare la regione di El Calafate

Pros: cordialità e disponibilità
Location: El Calafate ed il vicino parco dei ghiacciai vale da solo un viaggio in Argentina
si tratta di una struttura un po' spartana, improntata ad essenzialità, ma situata su una bellissima laguna-riserva naturale del WWF. l'hotel organizza escursioni di tutti i generi, con particolare riguardo al parco dei ghiacciai (Perito Moreno) il carattere "spartano" e alquanto rustico è però compensato da una atmosfera di estreme cordialità e disponibilità, che ne fanno una struttura decisamente consigliabile, con un ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo
