The hotel was exactly as shown on the internet great size rooms bright and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, really don't know how anyone could be "disappointed"! Being a chef in a well know London restaurant I found the evening meals in the hotel superb. There are fantastic views of the lake and the hotel organises... More

The rooms are a good size, the breakfast and service was very nice. Our room had nice view of Lago Argentino, especially sunrise. While the hotel is a little out of town, the hotel provided a very good courtesy transfer into town (see their details), which allowed us to enjoy the very good restaurants of El Calafate. We did not... More

Built on a hill above the city, with views overlooking Argentino Lake. Large bedroom with Jacuzzi and a great view. Takes about 15mins to walk down to the small, quaint town and about 25 mins to walk back up! A taxi service and shuttle is available. Meals and breakfast (and cocktails) were excellent. Fab cakes.

We were very disappointed and shocked with this hotel. The photos do not depict the rooms or hotel well at all. We were in the older section, and every aspect of the room was extremely worn. The carpet seams were unraveling, large portions of porcelain coming off of the toilet, ceiling stained with something, stains on the chairs, curtains had... More

La Cantera was the perfect spot for a short stay in La Cantera. We only stayed long enough to spend a day on the Big Ice trek of Perrito Moreno glacier. So that the hotel was situated right next to a grocery store and provided free rides to and from the main tourist area in town was ideal. The hotel... More

I had booked a "mountain view" room with views of Lago Argentina. It was not clear to me from the promotional pictures how the hotel was laid out. We were in a separate building below the main building, and our view of the lake was obscured by a two story building immediately in front of us. The room was also... More

Location of the hotel not in downtown, and for the price I felt you could get a better value near the city center. Takes about 15-20mins to go down/up the hill. Shuttle for 7:30pm-11pm was definitely good but the driver only drops you at a certain point before downtown street so you still have to walk. Pick-up can be anywhere... More

The hotel was a short walk into town down a fairly steep hill but the hotel had a free shuttle service on call. The hotel was very cozy with great views over Lake Argentino. Our room was spacious and the bed very comfortable.
