“Hosteria Cauquenes De Nimez”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

We stayed in El Calafate for 4 days in December 2013. The Hotel was excellent. Carlos who was at the desk could not be more helpful. He arranged our tours to the glaciers and gave us advice as to what to do. Breakfast was included. It is quite basis - juice, cornflakes, toast. Eggs are extra. Nevertheless it is sufficient. Tea and cake is served at 5:00pm. The rooms are clean, the bed comfortable. The Hotel is an easy 10 minutes walk to the town. I highly recommend this hotel

I stayed in hotel at the beginning of March for 1 night and the weather was so extraordinary beautifull, that staff even decided to put on "asado". It was the best one I had during my entire 6-weeks stay in South America! Also, form the beginning the staff was very welcoming, room nice, and breakfast very enjoyable - with view of Lagua Nimez!

We stayed here for 2 nights, and would have been happy to stay longer. We were given a warm welcome, and were able to order some beers to drink in the lounge. The lounge has sofas, a bookcase, and a laptop set up on a table for guests' use. The room was very comfortable, with a bay window which allowed us to see the lagoon from the left hand section. Although I went for a short walk along the footpath around the wildlife reserve, I didn't see much wildlife, and certainly no flamingos. We should have stayed longer, as we were booked in here for two outings to the glaciers. As it was a six day break over Easter and an additional bank holiday for the Argentines, the town was very lively, and one night was spent having a meal in one of the many excellent restaurants, and a walk around the town looking at the craft shops, boutiques etc. Many outdoor equipment and clothing stores, and the town is set up for the activities in the national parks. The other night we had a meal in the restaurant, and we were glad that we did, as the home cooking was excellent, and we had a nice chat with the friendly owner. The bathroom was spacious, but the shower curtain over the bath was held up by a rail which attached to the tiles with suction pads. I didn't realise that, and managed to pull the rail down, where it hit the tiled floor and the plastic end smashed. I was very sorry, and apologised to the lady who owned the hotel, but she just said so long as I wasn't hurt, it didn't matter. When we returned later in the day, it had been put back. But do be careful, as the rail is not screwed into the wall, so it needs careful use. The breakfast was excellent, especially the bread, which was lovely toasted, if you can wait for the toaster to do its slow work. Home made jams and marmalades, and a lot of cakes are on offer. The town is not that far away, we had a nice stroll there, although if it had been raining we might have thought it was a long way. The packed lunch was OK, we had little choice, as we arrived very late from a flight, and could not have gone out and bought anything else. There wasn't a lot more than snacks on the boat, so we appreciated being given a lunch to take with us.

We stayed at this hosteeia for a few days on our trip through Argentina. We arrived late after a tiring journey and were greatest by wonderful staff who were extremely efficient and helpful with our numerous questions. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hosteria itself relaxing and homely, and the location was beautiful! its a short walk to town, although we hardly went in as we were exhausted at the end of very active days! I Loved every minute of my stay and would recommend this to my friends and family.
Thank you!

The good:
+friendly staff who were extremely helpful with everything we asked
+tea service between 5 and 6pm
+close to the beautiful lake
+comfortable rooms

The could be improved:
-Our boxed lunch from them was awful--don't order it
-This hotel is further outside of town than we initially thought. To the town center is a good 10-15 minute walk. It is nice being removed from the hustle and bustle of town, but be aware that eating dinner out will involve a walk!

If you are looking for a home in Patagonia, book a room in Cauquenes de Nimez. Perfect location close to the Argentinian Lake, birds sanctuary just in proximity, walking distance from the city centre. The master and mistress of the house very hearty and helpful

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. Not everything was perfect. The rooms aren’t big, there is only one slow toaster for the whole breakfast room. But: staff and Juana in particular made our stay very personal and almost as ‘home’. We stayed in several hotels in Argentina but in none of them we felt as welcome as in Cauquenes de Nimez. Thanks Juana! And remember Juana: beautiful legs are ‘moeï biên’!
