The hotel has a lodge-like feel to it. The bar, restaurant and lobby areas are all very clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet has a good selection and the food was quite nice. It is convenient to everything in town. Our room was plenty big and we could control the temperature quite easily. I agree that the place can be...

We recently spent three nights at the Kosten Aike and while we thought it was very comfortable, clean, well located and well staffed the quality of a stay is dependent on room location. Specify a room facing the courtyard which are very quiet. Rooms facing the street are subject to noise ranging from annoying to absolutely impossible. If your room...

Two blocks from the main street. Very nice and helpful staff. Comfortable rooms and good heating. Try the restaurant around the corner that serves fondue and healthy choices called Kau Kaleshen.

This hotel was located in the very upscale city of el Calafate. You could easily walk down the road and around the corner to the main area of town, the restaurants, ATM's, shops, the park etc. The town had a swiss flavor and was the gateway to the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares and the Perito Moreno Glacier. The people at...

Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Internet was available on the top floor along with a hot tub and views of the surroundings. We were part of a small tour group, so room assignments were made for us; however, if booking yourself ask for a room away from the front street. The place across the street had music, but...

This hotel is one of the many hotels in Calafate, therefore they know they have to excell the others in order to be outstanding. There is a refrigerator, hair dryer,and a tv set. They rooms are clean, and there was a celebration in town, so the music was loud. However, not the hotel's fault. The people are friendly and very...

A big hotel in a small town, but with a boutique/intimate feel. I was traveling as a "single" but my room had 3 twin beds -- I wouldn't have chosen it for myself, but it was so charming that it outweighed having to sleep in a small bed. Great location - easy walk to the nature/flamingo preserve and the super-cute...

Centrally located, accommodating & helpful staff, pleasant public areas, nice, clean room. Excellent breakfast. Business center with good public computers. The only downside was that our room faced the backyards of houses with barking dogs. Other than that I can't find anything to complain about.
