IMO, and i'm sure others will disagree, El Calafate town is a tourist trap with too many souvenir shops. There are plenty of similar towns in Scotland and generally I avoid them. However it seemed to me that the easiest way to visit the Glaciares National Park was to stay in Calafate. The hotel was very stylish but not particularly...

Fancy lobby well appointed rooms but our rooms overlooked a parking lot and run down buildings No ventilation in the rooms. Our room was hot but no fan opened window but we listened to barking dogs motorcycles and other noise all night.

Apart from its rather austere external appearance we enjoyed staying at this hotel . It is situated on a hill above El Calafate and is quite a hike up from the town. Internally there is an impressive atrium and intriguing decor . The staff were 'ok' not especially welcoming but efficient. Our room was very comfortable with a lovely view...

We really liked this hotel but not everything was perfect. On the upside, it has a very stylish modern design with an impressive lobby bar restaurant area, which takes advantage of the excellent views. The smart interior decor and enormously high ceilings give it a generous feel and make it a lovely place to linger. This contrasts oddly with the ugly...

Not great, in my opinion, this hotel. It’s a shame because the look and feel of the place is great but there are just too many problems. The staff on reception weren’t unhelpful or unfriendly but didn’t offer the warmth or smiles of all the other places I’ve stayed in Argentina. I arrived feeling diabolical having eaten something bad the...

This is a big hotel (for the place) with a huge lobby, high ceilings, and a leather oriented decoration. We had room # 109; roughly 24 m2 with kingsize bed, TV, minibar and a safe. Big closet. Good bathroom. Breakfast is included and there is a good buffet every morning. The hotel is located on top of a hill, a...

I have mixed feelings about this place. We stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas break in December 2010 in two adjoining rooms on the 3rd Floor (4th floor US). Rooms were quite large, nicely furnished and well-appointed. Biggest problem no air conditioning and no ceiling fans. Now I’m not a big fan of AC but it was the middle...

I've stayed at Esplendor with my boyfriend for three nights. The hotel is nice -- trendy but cozy! Service, however... Except for one guy in the reception and one or two ladies who served breakfast, it seemed that they were doing us favors when we asked simple and basic things... The spa is nice and has a relaxing pool. I'd...

This is a hotel that could easily stand out even at the trendiest European winter destination. From the moment we entered the reception hall, we realized that we had made the perfect choice. Our room was clean, spacious and wonderfully decorated. The hotel is located uphill, about 300m from the centre of El Calafate, that's why the views of the...

This is a really stylish hotel, with very cool decor and interiors. Our room was nice (though a bit hot--no A/C) and the restaurant and lobby area are tasteful. The food is good.
