We were greeted by a very pleasant lady who seemed like a manager and who made us feel very welcome. Sadly not all the staff were up to her standard though, and her colleagues were often grouped around the counter in unapproachable bunches, giving an air of reluctance to help us with our requests. That said one did organise a...

Stayed for 2 nights. Nice hotel. Very helpful staff. Very modern. Amazing views (from our suite at least) on the lake and town. Hotel sits on the hill above town center, it is 5 min walk to the main street or a few pesos on taxi.

We stayed here a night in El Calafate only because Rebelde had smaller rooms and I had wanted to live there for its character and here for its luxury. Its not that old an hotel so maybe the staff is yet to get seasoned but a little bit of smiling and less of brooding would have helped us feel welcome....

This is a modern hotel, nicely decorate & within reasonable walking distance of the main street. The room & bathroom were clean & spacious however it was far too warm. You are supposed to be able to regulate the heat but even with the radiators turned off it was still too warm. Breakfast was fine, the usual standard buffet fare....

As our flight was canceled, we had to get a room ... Oh surprise this hotel was simply wonderful - close to the bus terminal (good for us, as we had to take the bus to Trelew). We got an upgrade and were in a suite with beautiful view to the lake and the mountains. The decoration of the place...

The hotel is very comfortable but reception is not well informed about how to get to Perito Moreno. I arrived around noon and wanted to go in the afternoon and they told me I would have to go in a taxi because tours, etc were only in the morning. I ended up taking a taxi and the next day I...

This is a great hotel. Beautifully decorated with modern feel. The room was not massive but very nice all the same. The bed was very comfortable. The restaurant served a very nice evening meal and breakfast was lovely also. The pool is small but useable, the sauna was great after a hard day's walking on the glacier!
