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’.

    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.

    This is really a perfect hotel in every respect if you are traveling to el Calafate. The location is perfect for walking to the main part of the town, the room was simple but wonderful, and the value is unmatched. But the best part of all was Natasha at the front desk. She is the most amazing person. So sweet! She made us feel so comfortable with our stay and she is so much fun. We highly recommend this hotel and plan to stay here again whenever we return to Argentina. Thank you!

    Booked a whole dorm as private room for me and husband. A little strange sleeping in bunk beds but there's a great vibe in the communal areas, the rooms are very warm, the view is amazing and everything is extremely clean. Breakfast was varied and good value for money. Ate dinner at the hostel one night and although the price was approaching restaurant level (albeit with a free wine) the grill was some of the best we've had in Argentina.

    Good location, walking distance to everything. Important to mention it's a very small town. The staff is very friendly, bibi was very helpful. The hotel is a very nice,cozy, and small place . Perfect for a pleasant and quiet vacation. Breakfast and meals at the small restaurant in place are good. On the other hand, geographically speaking , El Calafate is an amazing location.

    One of the more modern hotels in El Calafate, have tried various in the last 10 year, location just outside of town, amazing views and quite with direct access to the boardwalk of Lake Argentino. The food in the restaurant is great and especially the outside Argentinian “asado” they have once a week in the garden is an amazing experience with typical Argentinian food!

    Excelent value for the price. The location on a hill somewhat outside of town is ideal for the views, especially at dawn. Breakfast is varied and of very good quality.
