Los Ponchos was a really nice place to stay in El Calafate, and it's where I would stay again on a return trip there. The staff was very attentive, and helped us make dinner reservations, call taxis, order lunch boxes, etc. They were also very helpful when an issue came up with one of our excursions… my Spanish is almost nonexistent, so having a bi-lingual person at the front desk made all the difference in getting us to our tour on time.
We made a conscious decision to stay out of the main town, and we ended up taking a taxi each evening because Los Ponchos was a bit farther out than we expected. However, taking a taxi is not a big deal, as the hotel called one for us when necessary, and we were always able to find one on the street when in town. The real benefit is if you're doing many excursions… you will be one of the last people picked up and one of the first dropped off. That means less time driving around on a bus.
Also, I loved the breakfast each morning. Perfect for an early morning meal after a big steak dinner the previous night, and they changed it slightly each day for a little variety.
