“Elegant and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

La Cascada gets its name from a small waterfall in the delightful grounds, which slope down - in some places quite steeply - to the shore of lake Nahuel Huapi. A converted private home, it has excellent public areas, which have the best view over the lake. Our standard room was quite adequate, and by peering through the trees we could just see the mountains on the far side of the lake. We understand though that even the suites don't have a great view. To get the best views, enjoy the public rooms and the sunny terraces.
Breakfast was basic and, unusually, served to order rather than the more widely encountered buffet: language issues made for quite an interesting experience.
We discovered that the hotel had discontinued its restaurant before we arrived, but we were referred by the really friendly staff to two places just across the main road. One is a snack bar, which was fine for the national sandwich of ham and cheese but not much more. The other is a proper restaurant providing the national protein overload. Having had unmanageably huge steaks elsewhere in Argentina we saw with delight that "mini steaks" were on the menu. They were however so large (but delicious) that we wondered how massive the non-mini steaks might be.
We like walking, but the hotel is a long way out of Bariloche, and cabs are needed if you don't have your own wheels. That adds somewhat to the cost of going to eat in town, but we were only there for two nights, and it wasn't a problem. Might be for a longer stay though.

This hotel was booked for us by Imagine Latin America as part of a multi centre trip and was better qualoity than we'd have booked for ourselves. The hotel is not really in Bariloche, but three or four miles away. You'd need a car to access the town's facilities, although there are bars and restaurants within walking distance but along a busy road. Restaurant was closed for the evening we were there - why have a closed evening in main tourism season?
The setting, however, was gorgeous, set away from the road alongside the lake with its own lawns and beach.
Reception staff were rather formal, but breakfast waitress was really friendly. There was little information about hotel facilities and local attractions - we never saw the waterfall after which the hotel is named! It was the only hotel on our trip to charge for wifi.
Lovely variety of public rooms with great views, would like to have stayed longer to have a relaxing break at this hotel.
Our bedroom had a restricted view of the lake through trees. We had only one night and had eaten before we arrived, so it served as purpose.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a lake view. Ours was smallish and had a restricted view through trees. If stay...

Lovely hotel with views of the lake. Downside is the town is only walkable if you don't mind the dust and the cars as it is about six km away! Staff were always helpful and friendly.

A 4 stars hotel , not far from the center of Bariloche,offering an exceptional view to the lake.With an enormous garden, nice rooms and a very good restaurant. Peacefulness of the setting is one of his aces !

This is a lovely hotel - spacious and airy right on the lakeside with a slightly 60's feel but fine . The service from everyone was excellent and the staff went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. We liked being out of the town and the view from the excellent restaurant was beautiful. There is another restaurant very closeby which was also very good with the usual large steaks etc ! Breakfast could have been more varied but was perfectly acceptable and it was great to be able to sit outside and enjoy the view over croissants and coffee!!

This is an excellent hotel in Bariloche, very nice and in a good location. The restaurant is excellent too, do not forget to try the Patagonian trout.
Good choice for couples.

The location is nice, quiet and with nice views on the lake.
However the overall quality is not up to the price asked for a room.
The steel windows let to much air pass trough when the day is windy (and that happens frequently), so if you stay in the room on a windy day you can not sit on the sofas because of the cold air passing trough. (there were two in the grey suite where I slept).
The hotel has 3 wi-fi systems but none works once you are outside the lounge.
The wifi is to be paid for, same as the pc made available for the clients.
All this would be fine...but at a lower room rate.
