Another Magic dream place, that we discover in our Argentina’s famous Route 40 tour. Located on the Km 17 of the Route 26 and by the shore of the White River, 9 Mi. North of the little town El Chaiten, this peaceful and quiet cozy Inn has superlative attention provide by a couple and their assistants. Rooms are spacious and...

Great location at the start of one of the main hiking trails into Mt. Fitzroy. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious, food was excellent, which is a good thing as this Hosteria is a good 30 - 40 minutes from town. The couple running the place make you feel very welcome.

My husband and I would return to El Pilar in a heartbeat! We stayed for three nights and enjoyed everything about this special little hosteria. Some inns have a certain magic to them and El Pilar is one of those special places. Christina and Guillermo run the place. They joyfully helped us plan our hikes, told funny stories around the...

We loved our stay here. The rooms are nice, the bathrooms superb. The main sitting/dining area is cozy and comfortable with great views of the mountains. The hotel is located right on a stream with hiking opportunities right out the door. Fantastic place for the adventurer/hiker to stay in El Chalten. The proprietors were lovely people and added to the...

The place, the people, the setting - just amazing. If you're considering a visit to El Pilar - do it. The place is a gem. The accommodations are perfect in every way - the food is great, and Guillermo and Christina (your host and hostess) are just as nice and inviting and helpful as could be. Top that off with...

Guillermo & Christina will be your host at the base of the Fitzroy Masif, in the charming and perfect spot for day hiking through Chalten. They are lovely, hard working and fun loving people, they have a well-stocked bar and their chef puts together an exceptional menu. Hosteria el Pilar is at the start of a world class hike across...

A quaint and serene hotel with the most stunning views of the Fitzroy Massif from almost every window while you sleep, eat and relax. Located just a bit out of the main part of town, this hotel is unbelievable. First class dinners, extensive breakfast, superb bedrooms with all amenities one would need, small bar offering beer, wines and drinks, a...

This hotel is not in the town of Chalten but it is a perfect place to stay because it's close to the trails and has the best views of Fitzroy. But the REAL reason to stay here is because it is just beyond charming. The staff are super friendly, the fire and decor in the house are so inviting and...

I read about the Hoteria El Pilar in my guidebook and was exited to stay three nights outside the village of El Chaltén. The drive there on the gravel road was quite hefty and made a trip back and forth into town strenuous. I therefore decided to have dinner at the Hosteria. The food was simple but good, although a...

Beautiful and cosy Hosteria in the Natural Park of the El Chalten region, directly located at the trailhead of the Fitz Roy Base trail. The hosts are super friendly and helpful and I right away felt in love with the real owner of the place: the cat lady "Coca" :-). The rooms are very cosy and comfortable, with a beautiful...
