Hosteria los Hielos
Ranked #34 of 70 Hotels in El Calafate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 March 2017

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 to the Perito Moreno Glacier in town. That said the hotel has a free shuttle bus that will drop you in town at 7 pm and pick you up at 10 pm. Breakfast was OK but a bit limited.

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 and peaceful place.

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 accepted US dollars but they don't so we had to use the credit card for the meal.

Stayed: January 2017

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 an idyllic setting, with parts of the garden sheltered from the ever present Patagonian wind. The hotel is warm and comfortable, the rooms very spacious and service good. Packed lunches can be provided for those who are going on day excursions. Thank you Los Helios for making our stay very agreable.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms on first floor. Very good views of lake
