Mirador del Lago Hotel, hotel in El Calafate

Set in a charming building facing the Argentino Lake, Mirador del Lago Hotel offers rooms with stylish décor, and breakfast, 984 feet from the city center.

Loved that it was out of the busy part of town. Close to the lake which was full of flamingos. So fun to walk along the shore. Great breakfast. Happy hour was a good deal for a yummy aperol spritz. Nice and friendly staff.

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’.

    The only thing to really do is visit the glacier.

    The only thing to really do is visit the glacier. I thought we could do more to make an extra day worthwhile but the tours to visit the other parts of the park were super expensive. All tours in the area were way too pricey and you can’t really do anything else without a tour. The restaurants are good, but in general I think Chaltén has a lot more to do and see.

    I am a tour guide and I come to calafate with groups, at the end of my work I have a day or two of rest for myself. it is a beautiful city. although it should improve its internet service (it is regular everywhere) and they have too many dogs loose in the streets although they are not aggressive.

    El Calafate is the place to be for visiting the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. We did the Big Ice Adventure with Hiele Aventura and it was amazing. The town itself is fine but very touristy. The waffle café elba'r and the Patagonia Brewery were the best places we went to eat and drink. The Glaciarium was interesting, a very text-heavy museum, lots to read. We went to the Ice Bar there too, however I'd already been to the same concept in another city - if you've been to one, you've been to them all.

    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.

    The staff was brilliant! Informal enough and went the extra mile to help with each of our many questions and necessary arrangements. Breakfast was generous and served in the same room that turns into evening restaurant. We had one meal there and it was abundant and tasty. The location is out of town centre but at relatively short walking distance and very quick on a taxi. Nearby there's one of the best restaurants of El Calafate with great food and fab views towards town, lake and mountains and perfect at sunset.

    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.

    It´s well located near the city center of El Calafate. On Google Maps this place is categorized as 1-star hotel. And that seems appropriate. The price was however more of a 3-star hotel (and it was categorized as such here on booking.com at the time). I did however sleep well there and all the staff members were doing their job.
