    This is a great property in "downtown" El Calafate right by all the shopping and restaurants. We only stayed for 1 night before we flew out of El Calafate, but the staff were very friendly, the room was just what we needed, and the breakfast was good. Would definitely stay here again.

    Cosy and comfortable stay

    We enjoyed our stay here for 3 nights. It's in a great location not far from the main street and also the nature reserve. The service was really great but the food wasn't very high quality so a little disappointing. Room was spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed the games room too!

    Very nice hotel

    Lovely hotel. Our room was spacious and very nice overlooking the rear courtyard. Great breakfast with more options than other hotels we stayed at in Argentina.
