Dear Ivan C:

We hope to see you again
I send you a cordial greeting
This place is OK, and they do a nice job with the rooms and breakfast, and it's quiet, but we would not stay here again unless we had a car. The shuttles don't start until 10 AM, and only run once per hour, which can make for a lot of waiting. Further, they don't allow simple things that are standard elsewhere, such as charging small amounts extra to the room for cash. Since all of the tours that handle glacier hikes or kayaks, etc., require cash-only park fees ahead of time, that the tour companies pick up from the hotels the night before, it would be nice if the hotel would allow such things.
The location is a few minutes by car from the center, but the room is large and comfortable, and the dining room is beautiful. It's definitely worth the few min drive. We had a hard time finding the hotel with a GPS, but all places that deal with tourists knew where it was.
A real four star hotel, comfortable rooms, kid and helpful staff, good Wi Fi. Minibar in rooms, DirecTV. Has a nice bar, ambiente and decoration are classy. Restaurant could have more options, but included breakfast is abudant and varied. The hotel lies ten minutes away from town by car, but it has a great free shuttle service every hour from early morning through 22 hs. It is very calm and quiet, the view of the lake is great.
We paid for a standard room and it was quite specious for my surprise. The view from the breakfast area is stunning. The hotel provides transportation for free to the centre of the city, there and back. Good option to experience the greatness of patagonia.
Thank you very much for you kind words. We are glad you enjoyed our standard room and we hope to see you again! Kind regards.
Pros: Restaurant was worth going to for the fabulous view over the azure coloured Lake Argentina, the delicious specials of the day which included a drink, the warm rolls/bread and the all-day service. Convenient hourly shuttles into/from town. Hills surrounding the hotel were great for hiking. Exceptional breakfast with plenty of fruit, tasty breads/sweets, scrambled eggs, bacon, yogurt, etc.
Cons: Wifi a bit weak in the rooms. Thin walls.
Dear PermanentWknd: Thank you so much for taking your time in writing this review. to serve an excelent breakfast for our guests, is one of our priorities so we are glad you have enjoyed it. Unfortunately Wifi in El Calafate is known for being slower than the big cities. Once again, thank you for your review. Kind regards.
