El Calafate was our last stop on our 21-day trip to Argentina (2018-2019). It was also the 59th country I visited and at almost 57 years old, I have a good idea what a 5-star hotel should look like. It turns out that Xelena was a very unpleasant surprise that requires a warning

Unlike some guests on here. I was impressed at check in. It was pleasant, a nice welcome and I was shown to my room. 311. The room was large. Pretty basic. The beds comfortable and bathroom ok. The room has no drinks making facilities nor water provided. I used the free

Arriving at the Xelena hotel, my first impression was of amateurism at the check-in. We were early amongst the guests that came with the Aerolineas Argentinas flight from Ushuaia (part of the standard circuit), and yet it took ages to get the key and complete the check-in.

We stayed here as part of our tour. Nice rooms and views. The food is inedible , ie minestrone is not water with vegetables. The wait staff in the bar need retraining , starters come first then entrees. I don’t except the staff to speak English but it’s a service job, you can’t

Sorry for your experience at the restaurant with the food and the staff, we already take this to chef so he figure out what went wrong so it do not happen again. As for the staff at the front, they all speak english. We always find all our guest feed back really important. Thanks.

Thanks for your comment, we really appreciate all our guest feed back, the temperature of the pool is set so it is no health harmful. The bus is set so all our guest can visit the town really easy. We are trying to improve the internet service, but the town acces to internet is really limited. Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the food of the restaurant, we will try to improve this.

I believe the kitchen stays open till 11:30pm or later. Most late tours get back around 9-10pm. Taxis in town will cost $365 pesos to get to the hotel. Keep in mind that Uber does not work in this region.

EL horario de verano es de 11 am desde el hotel hasta las 10 pm, cada 1 hora salvo el de las 2 pm que no hay. Desde el centro 11:20 am hasta las 10:20 pm cada uno hora salvo el de las 2:20 pm. El traslado se puede utilizar después de haber hecho el check in, no antes.

Creo recordar que los enchufes servían tanto para el sistema europeo como para el argentino. Me dicen mis hijas que cuando enchufabas diferentes aparatos, unos iban mejor que otros. Por si acaso nosotros llevábamos adaptadores. Cuidado con los que compres porque algunos no funcionan después

O hotel oferece os passeios com alguma agencia especifica? Qual? Alguém sabe os valores?
Oi Daniel. O hotel tem agencia especifica, porem no centro existem várias que você pode fazer a cotação. Valor do hotel: Safari náutico de duração 5 horas, 2100 pesos + ingresso do parque (500 pesos). Acabei comprando o Safari náutico menor (1hora) + passeio no parque nacional = 830 pesos (+- 50 Dólares), no centro. Lembrando que isso não inclui o ingresso ao parque, que custa 500 pesos.
