Very clean, very spacious, very nice furniture, comfy beds, great bathtub for soaking in, with an excellent breakfast that includes homemade breads. We were also able to order eggs and bacon with breakfast. The only problem was that the temperature in my parents room was too warm (in November they couldn't turn off the heat) and there were a lot...

I've heard that el Calafate can be a disaster, and perhaps the many and varied tour groups that stay here says something positive about the place. I found the room small but adequately clean, and the lobby inviting, the breakfast more than serviceable, the wifi spotty, but the location is convenient to the main strip. Don't be fooled by the...

Califate has many dumpy hostels. This is not one of them. It's a good hotel at a reasonable cost in a great location. Unless you are travelling on a budget don't stay elsewhere in el C. Only issue was lack of a pool. It had a buffet breakfast good staff and the room was fine. Has wifi and a business...

A large jacuzzi, and spa services feels good after long hikes. Breakfast is one of the best we've had in 5 weeks in Argentina. We didn't...

We stayed at this hotel for two nights during our recent trip through Chile and Argentia. The room was comfortable but a little small. The location was good. Above all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I enjoyed my three nights' stay at the Kosten Aike as a base for visiting the glaciers. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and when our group went up to our rooms, our luggage was already waiting at our room doors. The hotel building is an attractive wooden building, and my large front-facing room had seating at...

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Kosten Aike as a base to explore the glaciers. The check-in process was very smooth. The room was a good size, with a large bed, a small sitting area, and a good size bathroom. I wouldn't say it was overly exceptional, but certainly it had everything we wanted. The restaurant, which we tried one...
