The hotel inside is super modern and eclectic. I loved the lobby and the decorations everywhere . Staff was really nice. Breakfast was decent. Massage was relaxing. We found the rooms súper specious.. we got a suite and it was huge. I would definitely recommend this place.

We stayed three nights. The first two were in a smaller room with a king bed. It was comfortable and clean. The last night, after returning from Torres Del Paine, we had an amazing room. It had a king size bed, a tub large enough for two people to have a nice long soak, shower and seating area. The view...

This is definitely the place to stay in El Calafate. The rooms and decor are stunning and very comfortable. The staff are so friendly and helpful, they truly made it an incredible stay from beginning to end. I was nervous about walking down the stairs to the city center by myself but it turned out to be fine, especially since...

We had a split trip as we were on our way to Torres del Paine N.P. The staff was helpful, friendly and courteous. The rooms were clean with beautiful views. We were able to walk to town and also the reserve on Lake Argentina.

The hotel is 5-10 min. walking uphill from the main tourist street. Not really a big problem. Nice clean hotel, friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast. We did not eat other meals at the hotel, so can't comment on the food. From our room we could see the mountains in the distance, as well as most of downtown.

This hotel gets high marks for cleanliness and a staff that is alert and helpful. The breakfasts are very good with good selection. The rooms are spacious enough and the decor is in keeping with town. This hotel fit our needs to a tee as we traveled to Torres del Paine, Perito Moreno, and Chalten and served as a base...

We stayed in January 2017 for 3 nights but think we should have only stayed for 2. Not a flection on the hotel or its facilities but it was quite a walk up hill from the Main Street and didn't find much to fill our time in the town - if I did the trip again I would stay 2...

Excellent hotel, beautiful rooms and bathrooms, very clean, everything worked. Wifi fast. Breakfast was amazing, large selection. Staff spoke good English and very helpful. The only cons -- parking area was quite small and difficult to maneuver in, and the elevators were a bit dodgy, had a little bounce when you step in. Also front desk staff write down your...

We stayed at Esplendor for three nights including New Year's Eve and had a brilliant time. We were three couples and everyone absolutely loved it. I was surprised to read some of the negative reviews here, because they don't chime with our experience at all. The hotel lobby area is really nicely designed - just like in the pictures. We...
