FAQs about hotels in El Calafate

Patagonia's Glacier Paradise

El Calafate is a small city in Argentinean Patagonia, situated in the foothills of the Andes and on the shores of Argentino Lake. Blending colourful wooden houses and Alpine-influenced architecture, it is the gateway to the Glaciers National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Booking.com offers a wide range of accommodation in El Calafate and surroundings, from 5-star hotels to cheap hostels.

The area was originally inhabited by the ‘Aonikenk’ people, while the modern settlement grew at the beginning of the 20th century as a refuge along the wool trade route, taking its name from the native blueberry bush known as ‘Calafate’. The town was founded by the Argentinean government in 1927 to promote the colonisation of the area, but its development started only after the creation of the National Park, in 1937.

The famous Perito Moreno Glacier is 80 km from the city. Mount Fitz Roy, the small town of El Chaltén, the romantic Onelli Bay, Lago del Desierto, and Roca Lake are some of the impressive landmarks that make up Argentina‘s 2nd-largest natural reservation. If you want to experience Patagonia’s languid vastness and tranquillity, try some of El Calafate’s rural accommodation or ‘estancias’.

    I did not like this hotel. It was miserable and did not live up to its advertising in booking at all. No good cuisine , no hot tub as advertised This is not a 5@4 star whitely and you are advertising it incorrectly

    One day stay in El Calafate to do the most popular site of Perito Moreno Glacier is sufficient in my opinion. I took the afternoon bus without any tour guide to the glacier. Tour guides are generally provided in the morning tours.

    Seeing the glacier should be on the bucket list for everyone. It's majestic. From what friend's post, the glacier is receding and may be gone in the near future, who knows. Calafate is a lovely city. Some of the best food we had in Argentina is here (Casimiro Bigua was the best restaurant we had by far). People are friendly and everything is accessible and inexpensive. Definitely worth a trip over.

    We came to El Calafate specifically to do the Big Ice trek, and only stayed 48 hours. That ended up being the right amount of time: the town is cute and easily walkable, but there isn’t a lot to do outside of the glacier (which is amazing!) and the Laguna Nimez nature reserve, which is fantastic if you like birds. Almost every restaurant took credit cards. Be warned, if you’re a coffee lover, we couldn’t find a decent cup of coffee anywhere in town. Our favorite meal was at Rancho Aparte, a restaurant inside the home of a Calafate resident named Gabo, who hosts people from around the world. We ate with a group of travelers from Argentina and Paraguay and got to know them - it was a unique and intimate experience.

    I researched many hotels in El Calafate' and read the good reviews about this property. Everything was better than the reviews said they were. I love when hotels are very aware of reviews and work to solicit reviews from their guests. Those are properties that know they do a great job for their patrons. - Multi-lingual staff here, which is a very big deal in Argentina. - Breakfasts were excellent - Hotel was clean, quiet and the rooms were nice - Great location If I come back to El Calafate, we will stay here again for sure.

    Very clean and cute hotel, good location, 1-2 minute walk to main street, rooms are warm and showers are strong. The staff is friendly and fluent in English. They listened carefully to my wishes and helped me find the best tours. Thanks to them, I was able to experience both glacier trekking in El Calafate and Fitzroy trekking in El Chalten, even though I was only there for two days. They also prepared an assortment of breakfast for me who did not have time to eat breakfast. It was a wonderful stay. Thank you so much.

    Best service we got in all of Argentina! From the first receptionist to the cleaning staff all the way to the waiters/waitresses, everyone looks genuinely happy to be there and is eager to help. It was such a pleasure interacting with everyone. We rented a car and found the location perfect. It's completely worth it paying for the lake view. The colours are insane and keep changing throughout the day. Rooms were comfy and everything was super clean, with nice finitions.

    We booked a room with two sets of bunk beds and a private bathroom. Basic but served its purpose. Plugs and lights were available next to each bed. I liked that the toilet was in a separate area than the shower. Towels were provided. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, toast, cereal and alfajores. Plenty of tours available for booking from the hotel. Location is not super central, but within walking distance from the busy area.

    This apartment was amazing. It was the perfect location within walking distance of both the town and the lake. The space was great for our family with very fast wi fi and a nicely stocked kitchen. Breakfast was delivered every morning by the owner who is the absolute nicest person and the best host. Everything was very clean and comfortable. This has been our favorite hotel during our entire trip in Argentina.
