This hotel is an excellent choice in Bariloche.
Location is unbeatable - directly on the lake, near some of the best dining (Patacon and Butterfly are within minutes walking distance) and a perfect mid point between the city center of Bariloche and the lovely Llao Llao area.
Very thoughtfully designed hotel with incredible panoramic views of the lake and mountains. Beautiful wood and stone exterior - exactly what you'd imagine for a perfect stay in Patagonia. Besides the breathtaking views, our Lago suite (#11) had a fireplace, jacuzzi, kitchenette, large and organized closet space and a spacious bathroom for 2. Beds were large, comfortable and equipped with wonderful crisp white linens. If I'm not mistaken all the suites enjoy the same amenities, the only difference is size - so you really cannot go wrong. I don't know that the website does the suites justice - they are beautifully new and appointed in a tasteful but subtle fashion that lets you focus on the views and location itself. The design is brilliant, with the jacuzzi placed in the front of the suite, so you can enjoy the lake/mountain views as well as the fireplace.
Some details to highlight that we especially appreciated - Welcome refreshments including homemade cookies, chocolate truffles on the pillows upon arrival, notably good breakfast including homemade patagonian jams, fresh pastries, and eggs/toast made to order, and incredibly helpful and attentive staff (from our first inquiry via email to our last breakfast delivered in room for our early AM check-out).
The one recommendation we would offer is to improve the computer/internet connection. Admittedly we were there on holiday to disconnect, but on the 2nd day we needed to send a couple things for work. There is one computer for guests' use in the reception, however it worked so slowly and poorly that we had to take a taxi a few kilometers away to the nearest internet kiosk. I don't know if it was just that day, but we'd bring our laptop next time just in case.
