“Pretty little Swiss-lodge style hotel in perfect location + great value-for-money”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

This is a wonderfully charming, family-run hotel that has been designed and furnished to resemble a rustic-style winter lodge that would look right at home in the Swiss alps, and is in a top location in the middle of the Bariloche city centre. There are restaurants and shops all around, and even a supermarket right opposite the hotel, which makes it very convenient for longer-term stays (I stayed for 7 nights).

I travelled solo but was given a lovely twin room with wide windows, and I really appreciated how clean, ample, comfortable and bright the room was. Daily room and bathroom cleaning is provided, and although I was on the highest floor, the WIFI signal was strong and reliable. There is a very generous breakfast buffet spread laid out every morning, with a variety that goes far beyond the ‘typical’ Argentinian breakfast.

The owners and all staff at the Casita Suiza are always smiling and eager to help, from everything to carrying the luggage, travel advice, help with local agencies or booking taxis. Only a note to other foreign travellers like myself: I think there are only 2 staff (the owners themselves I believe) who are able to converse in English, the other staff speak only Spanish/Argentinian, so it would probably be helpful to bring your Lonely Planet guidebook Spanish along if you need any special help when the owners are not around. Personally this wasn’t a problem for me at all, and I only speak basic Spanish.

The only downside perhaps is that there is no air-conditioning in the rooms, and in the summer it can get a bit hot in the room during the late afternoon. However I came to understand that nearly all budget accommodations or B&Bs in this area do not have air-conditioning, as until recent times when the weather has changed, there was never a need for air-conditioning as Bariloche is supposed to be cool and windy all year round. There were 2 summer nights when the heat was unseasonably warm and the room became slightly stuffy.

But all in all, fantastic value-for-money given the very competitive rates offered by Casita Suiza, especially given the clean and charming rooms, wonderful service, generous breakfast and free WIFI throughout the premises. I would happily stay here again if I return to Bariloche, thank you to the team at Casita Suiza for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: If traveling in high summer, ask for a room that has large windows so you can open them to let air c...

Very quiet despite the convenient downtown location and it's only a few minutes walk to the bus stop. Comfortable and clean rooms, with a very nice breakfast buffet and very helpful and friendly staff. Great value, too.

Reviewed 20 January 2009

We booked one night in this hotel after reading a recommendation in Fodor's Argentina and 2 favourable reviews on trip advisor. We had less than 24 hours in Bariloche, and no car, so it's proximity to downtown sights was the reason we selected this hotel. The price ($80 for double room) seemed reasonable - or so we thought. The room itself was a bit dingy on arrival, lots of wood paneling and 70's style heavy orange curtains. The bathroom(s) were odd - the bathtub, shower and basin in one room, and the toilet and another basin in another. Not the best design. However, given the short length of our stay and the ok price, we decided to stay. I wish we hadn't. In the early hours of the morning I woke up to discover a bug in the bed. Given the hour, and the fact that we were rushing to get an early morning flight, I didn't request to change rooms, or have the opportunity to report this to the hotel. I didn't notice any bites etc for the next 7 days. However, last night my body became covered in huge bites, which, when I visited my doctor, were diagosed as most likely to be the work of bed bugs. She confirmed that a reaction can take up to 9 days to appear, so I am positive that I owe my current itchy, painful and ugly condition to the additional occupants of our bed at Casita Suiza. This hotel needs to call pest control ASAP. GROSS.

Very nice hosteria in the centre of Bariloche. Nice, bit old fashioned and standard rooms, but very clean. Also it has a great restaurant (swiss oriented food like cheese fondue). It is not anexpensive hotel, around 55 US dollars per night, and really worth the money.
