After reading all the great reviews on this hotel, I was looking forward to a relaxing stay but my experience was very different to that of previous travelers. We got to Hotel Aldea Andina and was immediately greeted with construction surrounding the premises. The reception staff spoke no English to us and we struggled to check-in. After 20 minutes, we got to our room which was the furthest possible room. There is no wi-fi in the rooms and the wi-fi available in the lobby is slower than average. We booked through expedia, and the hotel was listed to have a washer and dryer in the room but this was not present. There were several other things not present as detailed on their expedia page, such as bicycles on site. We asked the receptionist if there was a laundry service (since there were no laundry machines) and was told we could bring our clothes to the front to have them take care of it for us. Little did we know that there was a time limit on this process and that we were 20 minutes too late (when we asked 25 minutes ago). After some fuss, they managed to work out something for us but this was all extremely stressful in our broken spanish and their broken english. The other thing to take note is the distance from the city center. Bariloche is very much walkable but only if you are in the center. The hotel is located 2km away which is very walkable but not the most comfortable walk (sandy roads with a constant flow of traffic). If you are staying here with a family and have a car, the location may be desirable but not if you are without transportation.
