Hotel A.C.A.
Ranked #2 of 70 Hotels in El Calafate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We loved the ACA hotel. It is centrally located 1 block off main street. The room was medium size and modernly decorated. Wifi worked perfectly. The breakfast was good and typical of other breakfasts we had in Chile and Argentina. When we checked in there were 2 twins beds and the hotel changed the mattress to a queen bed for my husband and I. The staff were very helpful for information and directions. They recommended Tablita for dinner and we loved it! We couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel in a very touristy town. I would give the hotel five stars if they upgrade the quality of the sheets on the bed, otherwise this hotel is a hidden gem in El Calafate.

Room Tip: Our room was #102 near the reception but surprisingly quiet.

Excellent location: next to the tourist office, the free bus stop to the Glaciobar, a two minutes walk from the Quartermaster Los Glaciares National Park and ten minutes walk from the Laguna Nimez Reserve.
Very nice rooms, generous breakfast and friendliness of employees.
Tip: pick a seat on the left side of the bus to Perito Moreno; that side offers the nicest views.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the ground floor because the first floor is below the kitchen and breakfast sta...

This hotel was great! Especially after staying in hostels in Chilean Patagonia....

King size bed, lovely modern decor, helpful staff, large bathroom.... best of all? Great location. 30secs to main street and 2mins from the bus station!

Breakfast was a huge spread. You cannot go wrong with this hotel.

This was a really good, clean hotel with small but nicely presented rooms. It is very central in El Calafate, and close to the bus station, so is extremely convenient. We stayed in another hotel later on returning to El Calafate, which was nowhere near as convenient. Staff also spoke very good English (unlike many places in Argentina).

Useful tips; About 200m from bus station. Stay here to be near the centre of town. us to Glacier museum goes from just outside hotel.

Positives: Good room,central location.

Negatives: Wifi a bit slow (I think this is universal in Calafate).

Room Tip: Get a room on 2nd floor if possible furthest away from reception

We had a two night stay here and thought it was great. The rooms, though smaller, are well appointed and clean. The overall decor is minimal and Scandavanian style, simple but cosy at the same time. There are common areas with fireplaces and sheep rugs. It is probably not to everyone's taste but we really liked the style.
Front desk staff were helpful and friendly. We had to change our reservation bc of a 2 day flight delay and they accommodated us. They also kindly made our dinner reservations one night because neither of us spoke Spanish besides the basic.
The included breakfast is the usual spread of processed breads and cakes. There's also fruit salad and yogurt.
It is only about a 5 min walk to the bus terminal, a great plus if you intend to take buses to other places like Perito Moreno or el Chalten.
ACA stands for Automovil Club Argentino.
