Poor service, restaurant was mediocre, staff indifferent, small room, expensive for what it is. I am sure I will not come back. The location is good but for the price we paid, we were expecting a much nicer hotel.

We do indeed expect more from a 4 star hotel and for the price we paid. This was obviously a beautiful hotel 10 years ago, but the lack of maintenance is visable over the entire property. We found mold along the pool sides and in the ceilings and the saunas was not working. The wifi was not working either, no...

We stayed for one night in this 4 star hotel. Nothing great, but nothing bad either. Small rooms, comfortable beds, good sleep quality. Average breakfast, but very good dinner. Main disadvantage is that it is outside of town, up on a hill, making it hard to walk downtown but providing great views of the valley. Of course they provide hotel...

We had a bad experience in this hotel. Due to a technical problem in the hotel we actualy had booked, our travel agent "upgraded" u's to Alto Calafate. From the moment we arrived in this hotel we experienced a very unfriendly staff. The lady on the receptiondesk was unfriendly and did no effort at all to help us. We stayed...

We (2 couples) were finishing a 3 week trip in Patagonia and the Alto Calafate was our next to last hotel. It had been booked for us via the agency we used for all of our travel arrangements. We should have paid more attention to the location. It is up on a hill overlooking El Calafate but it is 3...

It is on the top of the hill of El Calafate. The room, beds, wifi, breakfast were good. There is a shuttle bus between the hotel and city center, but it runs once per hour. The dinner was also very good, with view of Argentina Lake.

The hotel has a great view...but is 3 miles out of town. The food and service at their Restaurant was poor. Their gym and pool opens at 9 am....really?...so they want you to eat breakfast first and then exercise? Their pisco sour was excellent. The rooms are clean and nice...but they do not have a "do not disturb" sign....and the...

This was my first visit to El Calafate and therefore my first visit to Alto Calafate Hotel. The Hotel itself is ok. There are a number of things that are just not quite right. The Breakfast for example is very very frustrating. Its quite clear that the pastries and breads etc are not made fresh each day. They are just...

Not in the middle of town, but off on the edges, this hotel offers nice overview of the lake. It is a nice quiet place, with comfortable accommodations. The furniture is not exciting or modern, but comfortable. Staff are really nice and helpful. Free shuttle into the center of town, as well as pick up. Very close to the airport....

Stopped here before a hiking tour in Patagonia - loved it. It's on the out-skirts of town, but has a shuttle to/from downtown (you can walk there too). The staff is really helpful -- good food in the restaurant. The spa is great with really reasonable pricing!
