      The hotel was designed very well and the room was very comfortable. Had a great view of the lake, nice facilities and food.

      The only complaint I had was I communicated with the hotel via email before I arrived and asked them to book the glacier walk for me before I got there an thought it was done, but once I arrived it apparently wasn'T. I had to go into town and book it myself, a day later than I wanted.

      Very clean, with very nice view and great room.

      A llittle too far from the city center.

    • Group of friends

      This was anything but a junior suite. At the beginning we even had a room without air conditioning and around 30 degrees C. Only after complaining they changed our room. Still not bigger but at least AC

      The hotel is beautiful and offers a wonderful view of the lake

      The staff were not as friendly as I would hope, especially for the price relative to other hotels in the area.

      Good service, Nice atmosphere, and a great view on the lake

      A lot of rubbish alongside the street towards the hotel

      Best hotel structure but bad employee Why do we need to pay more 21% tax

    • Couple

      The Look of the Hotel is nice plus the location

      The Staff were extremly unfriendly. The room was extremly hot (35 degrees) and no airconditioning available in any of the rooms. Also only one of the windows was possible to be openend very slightly. I heard a lot of other guest complaining about this but no reaction from the hotel. The water in the room was not drinkable but no complementary water was given to the guests. The shower was broken but no reaction from the hotel. In the eating area guests were aloud to smoke during meal times. The bedroom had old carpet in the room which is not very nice when you are allergic to dust mites. All in all this was the worse hotel I stayed in during my trip to Patagonia. They seam to think, having a nice designed hotel in a beautiful location is enough to make every guest happy. They want a lot of money for very little service. I would not recommend for anyone to stay there.

      We had some technical problems in the room, but the staff tried to solve these problem as fast as possible. Great atmosphere with a spectacle and superb kitchen.

    • Couple

      The view from the room was spectacular, with nothing in the way between us and the lake and the mountains. It really makes up for the fact that the hotel is located far away from town (free shuttle is available at night). Pool and sauna are also good.

      The hotel does look a little worn in some places, but that's really not much of a problem. Breakfast is soso. Jacuzzi in bathroom didn't work.

    • Couple

      The view on the lake was like a dream.

      They need to get the restaurant filled with guests. This is not the case now since it is too expensive.

      The price you pay is way to much for the quality you get

      Very special hotel - lots of attention to a lot of things - but lack of it for many details as well... Overall however a very positive experience!

      There is a shuttle bus in the evening... But although we were at the appointed spot well in time did not get picked up - probably changed the route as we saw the van passing on the mainroad.... Hotel refused to talk about it and reimburse the taxi...

      Great location, view, staff

      Standard room = no view (need suite or higher for view)

    • Couple
      7.8

      This is probably one of the fine hotels in El-Calafate- its hard to find a good one... We liked the view from the room...

      Old rooms- need to ask specifically to be in the Lago side for better view. We didnt find the design we expected in the room (more like a 20 years old hotel)
