Having traveled throughout Argentina and South America over a 6-month period, we can say that Kau Yatun was, by far, our worst experience. Simply pathetic. First, they took our credit card information by email and then never responded. After several unanswered email messages over a few days we finally called to inquire whether we had a reservation or not. We...

This is a very simple but cosy Hotel. If you chose a regular suite, it will be small, but with a very confortable bed, good shower and great bath amenities. No TV but with internet in the rooms. Don't miss the visit to Estancia 25 de Mayo, the farm where the hotel is located. Enjoy the guided visit with Mr....

Hotel Kau Yatun is a strange mix of things.Is it a great hotel or just average? El Calafate is a remote town and looks like it. The Hotel was once an Estancia and looks like it. The surrounds are lovely and the hotel is on the surface quite nice. It is comfortable enough but it is dated. The excitement of...

We stayed at Kau Yatun during a two-week trip through swatches of Argentina, and while mostly the hotels we stayed at provided fine accommodation, this was actually an attraction. We arrived to a warm reception including a glass of juice and a tiny bouquet of flowers grown on the grounds. We later visited the sumptuous gardens the flowers came from...

Charming features of tis hotel that was a ranch -- sheep mowing the lawn and a rooster crowing in the early AM and a pleasant lobby -- cannot make up for the worn condition of the rooms. Mine had no light or view. It was not clean and everything was shabby. The safe didn't work. The plumbing knobs were loose...

Beautiful hotel in a peaceful setting. Professional staff and lovely bar and restaurant. Our room was so comfortable and we loved being able to fully open the windows to hear bird song and the sound of aspen leaves dancing in the wind. We hope to return someday!

The hotel is quite nice although its old and you can see its not quite modern. The bathroom is quite small. The location is lovely though with the farm around it. Not walking distance to downtown, but cabs are plentiful. Restaurant staff was excellent and so was the front desk!

We spent three night at Kay yatun hotel and overall it's been a ver positive experience. The reception area and restaurant are very nice, warm, and friendly, the kind of place where you like to stay and have a few drinks after a day full of excursions. The restaurant staff was extremely kind although the food is not that great....

This is a fine place in Calafate. You can walk to town. The rooms were comfortable and the grounds were nice. We went to a fantastic music and dancing show while we were there. Great food and a folk dance. I am not certain if it is a regular feature, but if so, don't miss it.
