“A perfect stay!!”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

We loved this hotel! Stayed here for 4 nights, and we can recommend this place to everyone. Only 5-10 minutes walk to the the center of town and a very nice view on the Lake Argentino. The host is very friendly, helpfull and if you do not feel like eating in town, try the restaurant at the hotel!

Gabriel and Victoria were really helpful, there were 4 of us and he suggested a car for the day as it was cheaper than 4 bus tours of the glacier, this really made for a great day. The hotel is the very tasteful, breakfast room is beautiful with view of bird sanctuary. Lots of other hang out spaces in the hotel, nice place to relax after a day of bopping around. A bit of a walk to the center, maybe 10 minutes but it makes up for in in the setting.

What I found unacceptable:
- The hotel is not clean. There appeared to be blood stains on the shower curtain. The windows were covered in dust and dirt. Spider webs were not in short supply. I simply find an unclean hotel room unacceptable.
- Things were broken. The closet was falling off. The TV didn't work. There are very few rooms. How hard is it to just go through them and fix what is broken?
- The neighborhood to walk through is a bit concerning. I won't go as far to say that it is not safe. But, I wouldn't walk through there at night, especially because there are many stray dogs and poor lighting.
- The service is sloppy. You cannot just ask for something and know it will be done. You need to remind people, sometimes several times. There appears to be no handover between on shift and the next.

What is good:
- The people working here are sweet and kind people.
- The cuisine here is good, especially for the price.
- You can easily walk to the main street in El Calafate (although don't be surprised to run into a few dogs along the way as in all of El Calafate). It took maybe 10 minutes so it is really not far at all.

Lodging offering comfortable, clean, small rooms only a 10 minute walk from the center of town, attentive and helpful reception, and a lovely breakfast. Reasonably priced and a fine place to stay. One can buy boxed lunches to take on full day adventures.
