The hotel is comfortable with friendly staff, but is about half an hour walk from the nearest shops on the outskirts of town. It really means you need to take a taxi to and from town. It is reasonably priced, but the town is not

A very comfortable hotel with large rooms, fast internet and good views of Lake Argentino. We stayed 3 nights and found staff very friendly, a well kept lawn went down to the lakeside road. The only downside is the hotel is 4 kilometres west of the town and it is a long walk back if you get off your tour...

We stayed at the Hosteria los Hielos for two nights in March 2017. The room was large and comfortable. Although it is located on the outskirts of El Calafate, the Hosteria provides a shuttle van to town. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed coming back from a day visiting the Perito Moreno Glacier to this quiet...

Quite a distance from the centre of town but it's a pleasant lakeside walk in, or take the free hotel shuttle in the evening. Our room was lovely and looked out over the lake. Ibis wandered over the lawns feeding all day. On the down side, our only meal in the restaurant was unsuccessful. Also, we'd been told the hotel...

Very comfortable Hostel and staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Perfect for our transition from hiking to the next stage our journey and holiday in Patagonia and so convenient for the Perito Moreno Glacier tour and visit to the excellent Glacarium Museum. A 45 minute walk along the promenade into town on the hostel's free shuttle bus.

If you want the opportunity to observe Patagonian birdlife from the comfort of your warm room, this is the place. Los Helios is situated away from El Calafate town centre, by Lago Argentino and we found this to be a bonus. Flamingoes huddle in the water in front of the hotel and ibises are forever present, pecking the lawn. Quite...

The hotel is located about 5 min drive from downtown Calafate. They offer a shuttle service which is nice if you don't have a car. The hotel looks cute and cozy but it needs some improvements. For instance, the towels were of terrible quality. The toilet seat was broken and stained and towel handles were falling out of the wall....

This was our favourite hosteria/hotel from our Argentina loop. We have stayed there twice. Sergio at the bar was friendly and the heart of the place. Service was excellent. Reception was friendly and helpful. Kitchen and menu was well selected and reasonably priced. We loved everything about it. The hotel is ten minutes with a taxi to the city. It...

We ended up here by accident- could not get fuel for the car due to the strike and our original place was booked for the night. It's a nice place on the edge of town, close to the lake with views of the lake. Nice open airy room. Clean and functional. Nice big lounge area, excellent breakfast. Glad they had...

This place is perfect to enjoy the view on the lake from the big windows in the rooms. A bit outside El Calafate, but providing transfer to town, it has a good restaurant and it offers a good breakfast too. Personal is kind, available and nice. Rooms are big and fully equipped. Suggested!!
