“You'll feel like royalty!”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

This place is so beautiful! Rooms are more like apartments with a very modern design and furnishings. For those of us who go to Argentina with US currency, it is a ridiculously cheap place (about $100 for suite overlooking lake w huge jacuzzi). Staff was really nice and accommodating. The only thing, is the restaurant was pricey, but there are many, many great places a short taxi ride away. I highly recommend!!!
Bariloche is mostly a Ski town, but we went in April ( beginning of the Fall) it was perfect weather, no crowds and lots to do.
Visit Llao Llao Hotel for drinks or dinner. Go on a 7 Lakes tour; fantastic! Also, Victoria Island is nice and, supposedly, Disney's inspiration for Bambi.

Due to the Chilean volcano we had to fly to Neuquen and take a 6hr bus trip to Bariloche, with the prospect of 6 hours on the return five days later. It was well worth it, both for the experience of Argentina's lake area and for the stay at Design Suites; and the added bonus of the airport opening again the day before our departure to BA. The hotel is cleverly designed and, although it is slightly demode now, it was clean, beautifully appointed and well maintained by the staff. Both the junior and main suites are spacious and comfortable, have great views, and are close to the main service area; the walk or bus/taxi trip into town is easy and guests can request a lift in the hotel's minibus. We were very well treated by the reception staff, who were helpful, good-humoured and generous at all times; perhaps we were lucky that they were not overworked due to the problems with travel around that time. En todo caso, GRACIAS, senores, por su amabilidad y por sus consejos.

Room Tip: Corner suites are ideal; use the beatiful swimming pool and relaxation area.

This hotel is such a find. Waking up everyday with a breathtaking view of the Nahuel Huapi lake is something that would be listed in any traveller's memoir. There is also a cool architecture, modern decoration with the cozy touch of wood and amenities like heated swimming pool with a lake view that you can't miss. And hey, price was good too!

Overall the hotel wasnt bad. The rooms are really comfortable. We slept very well during our stay. The pictures on the website look great, but the place is a little tired looking once you arrive. In the common areas they use a really strong smelling cleaner, which is used in cheap motels in Chile and smells similar to air freshners used in bus lavatories. Don´t pay the prices advertised on the website it´s not worth it, it´s hard for me to see how the hotel can charge those rates for this place.

In December 2011 we were in a group of 30 people visiting Argentina. We stayed in all 4 Design Suites properties and had inferior experiences in all of them. Our group had 16 rooms for 14 nights + as some people arrived early and others extended their stays. Without exception the staffs were not helpful and never did anything to show they appreciated our business. The Bariloche hotel is only good if you have a car. We did not. The hotel is located out of town with no sidewalks. It is not too far to town but our guide cautioned us not to attempt walking because the road is very dangerous.

The hotel is modern in design and has a heated pool and gym. The dining area has amazing views over Lago Nahuel Huapi and the reception area had interesting artwork and a comfortable sitting area.
We love the suites at this hotel. They are spacious and modern with king beds and a spabath in the room with huge windows; ours was a top floor and looked out over the lake.
It is a few kilometres out of town but taxis are inexpensive and readily available. On our previous visit a few years ago we used to enjoy the walk into town but with the problem of ash from the Chilean volcano causing dust on windy days we used taxis this time.
We had dinner in the restaurant one night and the food was delicious but limited in choice. The small menu did not change in our 4 night stay.
The breakfasts are OK but the staff in general are rather unfriendly and, at breakfast, could not be bothered to replenish empty dishes on the buffet. The coffee was frequently cold and stale.The staff, in general, are the only negative for us. If it were not for the staff we would rate it 5star. Still we recommend it.

Room Tip: The rooms are outside the main hotel with steps up to the accommodation buildings. The higher up the...

The hotel is very nice in spring time, and a good fit for people who want to enjoy comfort away from downtown. Nice flowers and trendy design. Service and food is excellent and the room I stayed was very nice, with a jacuzzi down the window, facing the lake. On the other hand, hotel is quite far from the city and the buses are close but not so frequent. Hence, if you do not have a car think again. However, there is a shuttle service tha takes you downtown on a regular basis. If you want to explore the area you need to get the bus as there are no ways of renting a bike, motorcycle or car in the surroundings
