9.0 Excellent
Pros: Personnel was perfect. Perfect managment. Everywere fluent in English and ready to accomodate to our needs. Very nice breakfast.
Cons: Hottab was slightly cold. Rooms need some kind of personality. The hotel is perfect all these comments due to the price/quality ratio
4.6 Okay
Pros: Clean. Nice breakfast. The view does not look like the pictures
Cons: HARD PILLOWS that were 10inches tall. They charged me 480 pesos at check out for water 3 bottles in the room since there are no courtesy waters. The shower has a minimal glass wall that gets the whole floor wet. Loud
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel. Good shuttle service
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Clean no complaints
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very nice. The café had good food.
Cons: The building is built with second class materials, floors, walls, paint, nothing was in very good condition. The breakfast food was pretty bad. The coffee was undrinkable.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great hotel, nice views on the lake, a little bit out of town but they have free shuttles so it's convenient. Lots to do on site (pool, ping pong table, spa). Highly recommended.
7.7 Good
Pros: The indoor-outdoor pool is very cool. The breakfast is pretty good, and you can even order a lunch to go (have to do it the night before) if you're taking a trip that day, which is a very nice feature. You also get a welcome drink when you check in.
Cons: For a "deluxe suite" the rooms are average. The location isn't great, but the hotel shuttle is very dependable. If you take the bus from the airport, you'll be one of the last dropped off (and one of the first picked up on your way back). On the plus side, if you're heading to the glacier, you're be one of the last on and first off.
2.0 Mediocre
Cons: absolutely awful and rude front desk service. the coldest people i encountered the entire trip and overall for a long long time.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice location and views from room and restaurant. Welcoming and friendly staff. Good fitness area with two pools.
Cons: The decor is starting to look a little dated. Breakfast left a little to be desired for our taste although others seemed to be tucking in!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Hotel has a great view over the lake and mountains. Efficient and reliable shuttle to town center. Spa has 2 heated pools with Mountain View’s. Good massages but limited hours.
Cons: Missed opportunity with the pools and the windows. Different configuration for the window frames would have given much better views while in the water. Desk staff are fully bilingual English/Spanish, but restaurant and bar staff did not speak English and were not great at adapting to communicate. Service wasn’t bad, but far less English capability than in restaurants in town or hotels in other cities in Patagonia.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed there for 2 nights. The view was amazing. The restaurant was excellent and was opened all day long, so in spite of a great choice of restaurants in El Calafate we ate at this restaurant twice. The meal was perfect and the service superb. The bar was very good also. The SPA zone is well maintained and has 2 swimming pools. The stone massage was very good and not expensive at all.
Cons: The room was cleaned only after 16:00. I understand that there were crowds of people during our stay, but it was not comfortable. Wish to have complimentary bottle of water in room. And also a bathrobe in the room.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This doesn’t look quite so promising from the road, more like a barracks but this is a lovely hotel, with fantastic panoramic views over the lake and river mouth especially at night. The rooms are lovely, spacious, well equipped and comfortable, with a quite decent if not quirky add on spa facility and good length pool. The restaurant was very good and packed lunches are available , all at very reasonable prices for the area. It is out on the hill at the top end of town so very convenient for the airport but not easy to pop into town unless you use their shuttle service but well worth staying at for the location and quality of the whole hotel. Would stay again anytime.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beds are super comfy, good facilities, lovely pool and great view.

6.0 Good
Cons: The Wi-Fi did not work in our room. The shower was blocked and the protecting glass did not perfectly fit so every time we took a shower the bathroom became a lake. It is a 4-star hotel (and they also have a spa) so we asked for slippers. Answer was “you have to bring your own” Also the restaurant is very average

8.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed the pool facilities. The breakfast is quite extensive and tasty. The front desk employee Natalia did a great job!

Cons: At breakfast, it seems the coffee pots were empty or almost empty every day we went for breakfast.

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: This is 1/2 star class hotel at best. Aside from the water shortage which I assume wasn't their fault, the facilities are run down. The breakfast is horrible, with stale bread, sour milk, and undrinkable coffee. The staff pretends to be friendly wearing a fake smile on their face but can be described as indolent at best! WiFi wasn't working properly and the towels wetter old, small and stained! Unbelievable. Stay away!
4.0 Okay
Pros: The staff was very very nice and tried their best at a time when there was a broken water mains and very little water in Calafate.
Cons: It is a very tired place and could do with a major renovation. While the rooms are completely acceptable, they have the feel and look of a 1960s hotel. Breakfast was nothing to write home about at all and the location, while overlooking the lake, is really very far away from town and at night with all the stray dogs around, probably not very walkable.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: The personal from the hotel was really friendly giving us good recommendations.
Cons: The breakfast was pretty bad, WE SPENT TWO DAYS WITHOUT WATER ... the Water Tanks were so small that the few reserves were cold and without pressure... the bathroom and rooms were really old and small...

Cons: - WiFi signal is pretty bad, would not be able to connect pretty much no where but you are in the middle of La Patagonia. Much better things to do than looking at a screen. - Highly appreciated a more regular transfer service, 4 times sprees from 10am to 10pm is quite limited.

Pros: Great view of the lake and really nice facilities. If you are looking for value for your money, this is a great spot to choose!

Pros: The chalet we stayed in was perfect for what we needed - single bedroom, and loft upstairs. Couldn't have been happier with the space. Was walking distance from the main spots downtown, and the front helped us call a taxi to the bus in the morning.

Pros: Excellent care from the hostess! We especially liked the special prepared lunch boxes which was like a small present each day. Very good care for the guests and of the property. Also good location! We were very content with our stay!
Cons: Property was a bit noisy at times, but does not bother if you plan on taking trips/hikes that requires you to wake up around 8 anyway.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Spacious, quiet and comfortable room Great location close to main street and restaurants helpful and friendly staff Convenient location to be picked up for our Perito Moreno glacier tour

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location in easy walking distance to great restaurants and supermarket. Staff were lovely and very helpful with great suggestions on what to do in the area. Bed was comfortable. There is no TV but that is not an issue for us. Large apartments though a bit dated. We arrived about 7pm and had no problem parking as the Hotel seems to have its own little parking bays directly in front. It would appear to be a popular Boutique Hotel because it had no vacancies during our stay so during peak summer season would suggest you reserve in advance!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location. Can walk easily to shops, market, restaurants, bank/atm. Friendly family owned and managed. Internet worked better than expected in our room.
Cons: Windows should be able to be secured in open position. Wanted some breeze in apartment. Windows would slam shut. Telephone in room didn't work. Hot water for shower was limited, but we figured how to manage by second day.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff at the hotel arranged our sightseeing and transport. Good breakfast in the morning. The apartment was quite large and was what we wanted after several nights in a hotel - quiet, simple, good location, good bed!
10.0 Excellent

7.5 Good
Pros: Carlos on the front desk was so helpful and really friendly. The lunch boxes to take with you, when visiting the glacier were terrific - healthy, tasty and lots of food - good value for money and beats waiting in line to buy lunch in the National Park.
Cons: I’m not a fan of a joint shower and bath tub, I’d rather just have a large shower and do without the bath tub. Also robes and slippers would be nice, as would outside seats, to enjoy a coffee in the sun.
7.5 Good
Cons: Family room with balcony towards main road side has poor sound isolation.
9.0 Excellent
Cons: The room was too warm and lacked AC. With the window open it was still warm and also noisy.
7.5 Good
Pros: Modern, clean but very small rooms for 2 persons
Cons: Modern and confortable but small
5.0 Okay
Cons: The room temperature was unconfortably hot and there was not a thermostat in the room. We spoke with the front desk staff about this with no improvement. During the day, we kept the window and the curtains open, however, at night this did not work because there was a bright outdoor spotlight exactly in front of our window. The view from the window was literally a tree stump (the hotel is built on a hill). The decor is outdated. The wall paint in the bathroom was peeling and 2 of the faucets on the tub fell off. The hotel was loud (we went to sleep to a loud conversation next door and woke up at 6 a.m. to someone whistling upstairs).
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel. Breakfast was excellent. Room was clean and comfortable. Recommended as visiting Glacières Park is a must.

4.2 Okay
Pros: Only Jonathan working at the hotel at night was nice and helpful with the water situation
Cons: The location. Far from downtown no shuttle service Old carpet on corridors Not a nice view. Only partial to the pool The first day there was NO water in the hotel. Because of a city problem. But they did not discounted anything! Bad attitude at front desk when we arrived. The guy was too arrogant .. the way he talked to us . Made us pay upfront everything... which was too expensive for what we got Rooms are badly decorated... cheap choices. Defintely not a 4 star hotel and would not recommend this hotel
