Score from 109 reviews Very good
breakfast very poor, not even 3* standard Heating could not be adjusted. Very warm Swimming pool was not heated on the first day (general heating problems) Poor shuttle service (only 2 per day)
the stylish architecture of the hotel, merging with the beautiful lake, making every moment a unique view
unclear signage to the hotel
The view from the dining room is magnificent. The heated pool is fabulous but only big enough for 2. Breakfast was better than many we have had in this country as they have scrambled eggs and bacon and a whole wheat bread choice.. (sort of). Bed was reasonably comfortable and big. Locking safe in room.
The big windows make a sauna affect which makes the main areas uncomfortably warm at times. The room is small for the price. The walls paper thin, you can hear the neighbors snoring. Trying to add 2 days to our stay was beyond the capabilities of the staff. Like they didn't care so we went somewhere else. Our room faced the hills so the view was electric lines and half built structures and every one arriving and going can look right in your room. Walk in price is much higher than online price.
Great views, great building and very good food. Spectacular.
We stayed twice and I one room there was no wifi reception. Restaurant service was slow but the food was excellent so worth waiting.
View of lake-
-reception on arrival was less than welcoming -menu restrictive -view at room 210 ........ horrible -given location of hotel there is need for more frequent shuttles to city - breakfast could be greatly improved (coffee terrible)
Beautiful view of the lake and mountains. Helpful staff.
Just breakfast (but all mornings the same) and lobby view
When we checked in, the hotel asked me to pay a deposit of 900 pesos. I have paid our stay already via booking.com and they said they need extra in case we use mini bar or steal towels. It is ridiculous and we felt very humiliated. In the morning of check out we got letter under the door: please, check out at 11:00 a.m. and I have stayed in lots of hotels around the world but never experienced that. The tv was sooo old in our room. I asked double bed and we got 2 twin beds. There were shampoo just for one person, then we left a note in Spanish to ask to put everything for 2 because we were two. Next day we didnt write and we got just for 1 person again. It was too hot in the hotel, sometimes it was even difficult to breath. Now I know that your money was not worth. There are other hotels like El Mirador con perfect view and better location. Please, understand me correctly, we knew that hotel is located far from the down town and we wanted that but we did not know that there are no streets and actually it is impossible to walk (especially if it is raining, you will be dirty) The road to the hotel is without asphalt. They had shuttle service from the hotel to the center from 18:00 till 23:00 but since 10/09/2014 they have changed and now there are only 2 times: at 18:00 and coming back to the hotel at 21:00 so we found it very bad. And we talked to the center so it was 1 hour walking if you are not in a hurry (walking always down but if you need to come back - always walking up is a big sport)
Everything, location, design, food, spectacular view from the room (lake), pool, super friendly staff. The free shuttle into town. The tranquility sorruonding the hotel and the occasional wild life visitors. An amazing experience.
No iron in the room, but then again...who needs a stiff shirt in a glacier? :)
Great location,great lake view , amazing hotel and modern architecture. Very relaxing please after busy city live. Highly recommended.
Absolutely beautiful building, stunning views, and outstanding warmth and attentiveness of staff. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Restaurant was good quality.
There is no place in walking distance. The views are spectacular, but you need a taxi to get anywhere. There is a free shuttle with a limited schedule in the evenings.
Hotel was great! Beautiful view of the lake and mountains. Nicely located on a hill on the edge of El Calafate. Every night a free shuttle service to take you to and from the centre in 5 minutes. Hotel service was very helpfull in planning of excursions and provided all needed tourinfo.
Generally the facilites reflect a beautiful design and provide great comfort. The jacuzzi was particularly gratifying. The pool was very good too and had interesting views. Our room faced the lake and the view was spectacular! The dinner we had at the restaurant was of high quality, beautifully presented and the cordero patagonico was particularly tasty.
Amazingly in this age of global warning, many rooms have no airconditioning and are equipped with windows that only open a few centimeters, so that there's no room for the exhaust hose of a portable airconditioner. When we arrived in the early afternoon exhausted from our travels, our room was like a sauna and didn 't reach a comfortable temprature until late at night.
The view of the lake is spektacular. The hotel is not in the heart of the el calafate but the hotel offers from 18:00 to 22:00 (1 per hour) a transfer from and to the city. A short bus ride of appr 15 min. This is absolutely doable for the great view you have over the lake. Its a great place to relax after a long day of trekking or doing excursion. The swimming pool is Amazing with view of the lake. We found it really good value for your money. If you want to be in the main street then this is not the hotel for you.
Dinner in the hotel is not great, its just average, nothing special.
Wonderful location with fantastic architecture and views to die for. Well worth booking a room with a lake view! High quality and well presented food.
Breakfast area was a bit small when tour groups arrived all at the same time.
Nice view of the lake. Lounge music in the restaurant an pool area. Warm temperature of the pool.
Some of the stuff couldn't speak English. Room seems to be a little bit used.
Beautifully located with stunning views from the rooms. Alle facilities were very nice, like jacuzzi bath in the room. nice swimming pool(very warm water) Staff was very helpful and friendly
the layout of the bath and shower was a bit clumsy. you had reach far to regulate the shower temperature. but this may be considered design :-) Most rooms do not have air conditioning. so on beautiful days it can get warm in the rooms with all the glass windows
The view from our junior suite was outstanding. Waking up to such a magnificent view of Largo Argentina will stay with us for ever!!!
The food at the restaurant was very good and we decided to have dinner each night of our stay. The only down side was the poor service. You could wait an hour before getting wine and another half an hour before getting the food!!!!!
Lake view was amazing.
Its far from city center.
There's nothing left
The view was biblically awesome and the room was very comfortable. Heated floors!
Restaurant was terrible.
great architecture in a beautiful location. Friendly staff and everyting we needed was available.
Food was patchy and overpriced. Some of the fittings seemed to be DIY contraptions whcih was odd in such a new hotel. Very good, but not as good as it could be or should be.
The place is beautiful whit an amazing view of Argentina Lake.
the service is terrible. The staff are not so well trained. The customer here don't have the right to complain- the front desk staff were rude. the breakfast is a mess, there are 2 persons working during the high season and everything was missing; there are less tables than the number of guests and the wifi does not work. there was no shower cap in a uS$ 270 room! the sauna was out of service for 1 week. and there was only one maid working, so the room would be cleaning until 5 pm! dont stay here
Excellent view of the lake. Better to stay here rather than calafate town. Shuttle to town is free and efficient.
Check in took very long.
Wonderful location and views of lake and surrounding mountains. Very helpful reception staff.
Room 318 (one of two rooms we had booked) smelled of bad drains. We did not raise this until our departure, as it was over Christmas, and hotel (as well as the region in general) had to deal with no local supply of water. However, reception staff said they were going to report this.
Amazing view making up for any shortcomings. Free shuttle to centre of El Calafate and option to order lucnh boxes for day trips.
Overall, design and running of hotel only works at the surface - sauna didn't work, bathrobes had to be bought, wifi unstable, food not overally tasteful, staff semi-friendly and knowledgable.
