A 3 star "average" rating deserves an explanation, so let me begin with the good: The hotel staff - super friendly and welcoming, especially the bartender who makes exquisite cocktails :) they welcomed us with a champagne cassis cocktail which was a nice touch. They really try. Hotel design and room view: whoever created the design of the place was...

Beautiful, well decorated, very friendly staff, great service! The room is very spacious, with a stunning view of the Lake Argentina making our experience even better. The hotel had a small nice pool, wet and dry sauna, a fitness room and a delicious breakfast! If you are looking for a sophisticated hotel, Design hotel will definitively serve you well!

Great hotel and value if you have a Lake View Suite, the panoramic views are amazing and we enjoyed at the end of the day coming back to the suite for a hot jacuzzi watching the sunset from our suite. It is a seasonal hotel and seems they don't care too much for keeping it in perfect condition... the swimming...

We came in late at night and it was dark on the dirty road. It was hard to find the way to the lobby. The staffs were very nice and friendly. Very impressive with the first look at the lobby. When we first got to the room , it was nice to see all the the modern furniture and lamps....

When you first walk through the front doors of this hotel, it is hard not to be impressed. The views across the lake through the massive front windows are astounding, and the architecture is indeed something to behold. But then you get to your room and start taking a closer look. While everything is superficially still very stylish, a closer...

Design Suites has an amazing view of the lake! Lots of glass and wood, with a lodge kind of feel. Unfortunately, the hotel needs so much updating. The glass has a huge crack in the front, floors are discolored, carpets are stained. The heat radiated from the floor in our room the entire stay, even though we asked them to...

The interior design of the hotel belies the fact that the rooms on the second floor get extremely hot during the day. The sun hits horizontally at the floor to ceiling windows and the curtains do nothing to block the heat. My room was consistently over 90 degrees F even with my weak air-conditioner on full blast. I ordered box...

We stayed in Calafate at Design Suites for a 3-day weekend to explore Glacier Park, while living in Buenos Aires for a few months. Beautifully situated hotel with lovely views of Lake Argentina from public spaces and room. Friendly and responsive staff but the hotel feels neglected. Hot water needed to be turned on the first night to our jacuzzi...

We just visited El Calafate with my wife in early March, and stayed for 3 nights. We had read some of the bad reviews in here, so were a bit cautious especially after our travel agent had suggested it to us as an alternative. Design Suites is about a 30-40 minute walk from the center of El Calafate. It is...
