When El Calafate was much smaller, this sheep station was just out of town. It still evokes the feeling of old Patagonia, but is just 1 mile or less from the best restaurants and shops. The rooms are are simple but clean.

We stayed here in fall 2016. The hotel has a great rustic feel to it, with rooms that are devoid of TVs and fancy finishes. Our windows opened (literally) onto an open area with grazing sheep & horses. The included breakfast was good (not the best we had in Argentina); dinner at the restaurant was OK, but better options are...

We booked this hotel, sight unseen, through the internet (Travelocity). There was a special price of $61USD (as of early 2017), and we were not really sure what to expect. **I learned that when booking through Travelocity (some partnership with Expedia exists), the hotel receives payment directly through Expedia. (There is also a no-cancellation policy; you pay, regardless of whether...

Charming rustic estancia about 15 minutes from downtown El Calafate. Fun to be greeted everyday by the furry, friendly sheep herding pooches. The staff at the front desk, Nicholas and Florencia, were helpul too. Hearing about the estancia life around a campfire and eating torta fritas (a fried bread) was a unique experience. They also have sheep roaming the property...

We stayed four nights at this lovely hotel and we felt like family. The hotel is close to town but away from the noise. Great food, wifi and comfortable rooms. The best was the friendly and helpful service. I want to particularly cite Mateos at the front desk who took great care of us- had wonderful recommendations and was a...

This is a converted estancia on the edge of town. It´s location is perfect. It is an easy 10 minute walk to the centre of town (not sure why people complain about its location) yet it feels like you are in the middle of the country with sheep, horses and we saw many exotic birds. The staff is exceptionally gracious...

Decent sized rooms, with nice soft warm beds. Not sure if that alone would make it 4 stars though. But the garden, and other facilities are great. Best breakfast assortment so far in Argentina or Chile we come across, especially in this price range. Also has an amazing restaurant, not just as far as hotel restaurants go, but competing with...
