El Calafate is remote, so proximity to other attractions at any hotel is to be expected. However, Design Suites Calafate is literally on the shores of Lago Argentino.

Furthermore, the food at the hotel restaurant was delicious. We didn't go into town looking for a restaurant because the hotel's food was just so good. Be sure to make a reservation though since tour groups may occupy the whole restaurant.

Our rooms were comfortable, and let nothing to be desired.

The Design Suites at Calafate is a beautiful Patagonian structure in a very quiet area of town with a wonderful sight over the lake and the mountains. It’s in the wild and gives a perfect taste of Patagonia. Rooms are spacious and clean, a little too hot for me (I needed to keep the window slightly open).
Staff is very kind and always available. Breakfast is abundant. Only issue I had during my stay the internet network was extremely weak and could not connect.

Good view from the Argentinian lake, nice architecture, nice distance from the city. Good food. Nice staff. Better if you have your own car. The best thing about this hotel is that you keep the Patagonian atmosphere!

Room tip: If you can afford pic the superior room. All are quiet and have a good view.

Hotel is very good. It has a heated pool overlooking the Lake Argentino. The rooms are good, large andthe heating system works well. Even the bathroom floor is
heated! In winter it makes a lot of difference.

The reception of the hotel is being renewed, which can create some difficulties since the alternative reception is much smaller and less equipped than the original one.

The worst of the Hotel Design Suites El Calafate is the internet connection: it sucks! Uploading the photos we took at Perito Moreno glacier to Google Photos was simply impossible. Even sending 20 photos via Whatsapp took a long time.

Room tip: Rooms with odd numbers overlook Lago Argentino

The Hotel has wonderful views, great rooms and excellent english speaking staff. The food was not to my taste , but they had USA style bacon and they brought me out about two huge stacks for sandwichs for my breakfast at no extra charge with the buffet.
