“Great owners and pleasant accomodation”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

We stayed there two nights then left for a short trip to Chile and came back here for one more night. We loved this hotel, the owners were extremely nice and helpful, the room was always clean and quiet, the bathroom large. The owners helped us with basically everything, advices on trips, tours, buses, arranging a great driver, keeping our bags there while we stayed a coupe of nights away. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the main street with flamingos behind in the natural reserve area.

Reviewed 26 March 2012

We chose this place as it had a great review in our guide book and, as we were doing a 16 hr bus trip, thought we'd spoil ourselves on arrival by spending more than usual. Its fine but not as special as we'd expected given the price.

Email contact before we arrived was very warm and there was a free bus pickup which was most welcome.

The room was spacious and comfortable with fridge and table. Shower was excellent. Breakfast was ok.

We really appreciated being able to stay on after checkout time till our next bus left.

Location is a bit out of town eg 5-10 mins walk. Not a real issue for us but might be for some.

The only real negative was there was a lot of noise eg building work which we could hear from our room but I guess that's time specific. (Not sure why we were put in the room most exposed to the noise tho. )

Everything was fine really but not noticeably better than other places we stayed in which were cheaper. If they reduced the price I'd recommend them more strongly. When we returned to calafate we went elsewhere.

Everything was great, close to the main area, really nice room and accommodation. The staff was really helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us. It was our favorite hotel during our stay in Argentina.

The really nice staff helped us to book our continuation of the trip and prepared our lunch-packs. The hotel is some blocks off the main street, but therefore it' s very calm there. Highly recommendable!

Alto verde is a very nice B&B style hosteria about a 10 minute very easy walk into town. It's run by a very lovely owner and staff who are extremely kind and helpful in explaining the area and can help with organizing any excursions. 

The rooms are pleasant, large, contain a fridge (which seems pretty rare in Argentina) and have cable TV and free wifi. The breakfast is a nice basket of pastries with butter, jam, ham and cheese. 

It was nice to be slightly out from the main town but easily accessible. It made for a very pleasant and relaxing stay in El Calafate where seeing the glaciers are a must.
