All of the other hotels in Patagonia, that I selected based on TripAdvisor ratings were good and what I expected, except this one. It is a 2-star hotel at most. It is better than a hostel, but it is very basic in every respect. I could not get out of this hotel fast enough. Unfortunately, I had booked 2 nights....

Puerto Natales is not a fancy city but a rugged town. As such, this otherwise average/above average hotel is probably one of the nicer downtown hotels around. We stayed there for 2 separate nights and found the rooms roomy and adequate for our purposes (beds and showers). The morning breakfast is nice, with ham and turkey slices and other pastries/breads....

Dogs were barking outside the window nonstop, we had to close the window. We asked for a different room after the first night, rooms...

One of the many hotels in Puerto natales, no charm, but nice staff. Minimalist breakfeast. as the floor is in non -insulated Wood and thin walls, your hear everything upstairs or in next rooms.... You need ear plugs to sleep.

Older hotel but nicely maintained and decorated. Two blocks from waterfront with partial water views from some rooms and from nice sitting area at end of corridor on third floor. Wifi only worked in this sitting area (not everywhere as listed). As with most hotels in this region, inside temperature was too hot for us, so we had to turn...

My daughter and I stayed at the Charles Darwin as part of a package from Sky Airlines. The room was spacious and everything was so clean. Towels and sheets were very comfy. Staff could not have been more helpful even when I could not speak Spanish. Some of them did speak English. Breakfast was excellent. Only sorry they did not...

We arrived at Charles Darwin at 11pm from a very long and tedious bus trip from Punta Arenas. It unexpectedly began snowing and the roads were icy and it was freezing. Charles Darwin was warm and inviting,the owner was originally from Australia and we were warmly welcomed. He organised with a local restaurant for us to be picked up so...

Great location, average room and to top it off it smelt of cigarettes. The bed and shower though rated right up there-i had a great nights sleep except for waking up due to the cigarette smell. This could be a great old style hotel but the renovations have just left it looking...uhm, ugly and tired. Staff were Dont

Our room very vary large, clean, and with a nice bathroom. Despises the cold wind outside, the room was very well heated and we enjoyed the nice bed. The staff is very helpful, especially carrying your language, as the hotel has no lift. The breakfast was very good, with eggs prepared for you at the moment. The hidden secret of...
