“Worth the money”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Good:

Not expensive, 500 $ per night.
Great location, about 100 meters from center.
Nice big rooms.
Wifi in the room.
Nice traditional breakfast included.

Bad:

The front desk wasnt too nice.
Have to enter wifi password each time when you turn on screen phone.

Overall good money worth, nothing too fancy but will do.

We were only at the hotel for one night. It was just alright. The location is very handy to town and many restaurants. The bed was fine and the room was clean and it was quiet...it was all we really needed. Breakfast was served in the restaurant and was the typical Argentinian continental style....not exciting but the dining room is nice. I would not have wanted to stay there for longer.

The best part of this hotel is the location as it is centrally located to most things in the town. I was here with a tour group and we only stayed one night and that was fine with me. The breakfast was the traditional Argentinian breakfast and included which was good. The wi-fi didn't quite reach our room but worked well in the lobby. If you're planning on living in the room and not seeing the town or anything then this is not the place for you but if you're looking for safe, centrally located hotel to use as a home base while exploring the area then this hotel is fine.

We were placed here thru our travel agency and found it blah. We looked at the breakfast but chose to go elsewhere for food. The room was standard and unfortunately VERY noisy. Apparently there was a concert in the square with very loud music, it was like being on top of a bar. Add to that the fact our room faced the the area of the sidewalk all the smokers were attracted to. It was hot and we tried to open the window for a breeze but the smell and noise made comfortable sleeping rather hard to do.
Service was none. We asked for some recommendations for dinner and were told they did not do that. We managed on our own.

In our experience just a good hotel; you get a decent and clean room, good service, nice breakfast. We heared al lot of travellers who suffered from bites of bedbugs, and one person commenting also talked about bedbugs in this hotel, but we didn't have any.

Stayed for 2 nights. Breakfast was basic but good. Room was clean and most importantly warm. Free WiFi was great. Reception staff were excellent. When you are in El Calafate you just need somewhere to rest your head. Fitted the bill perfectly. No complaints. Walking distance to restaurants and shops.
