If you are looking for nice hotel, good food and free wifi this hotel is for you. It's far from the center of the city, but they have a bus every hour. The only thing for me that was a negative point is that the division between rooms are made with dry walls, so I could hear everything that was...

I recommend the Rochester Calafate and would happily stay here again despite the minor issues I have noted at the end of this post. Positives: 1) This hotel is beautiful - it feels very new and reflects Patagonia in its design and decor. The view from the hotel is also very nice. 2) My room was comfortable and clean and...

I stayed here with my son for 2 nights at about £45 per night through hotels.com. It's a small but adequate hotel. On the plus side excellent breakfast, friendly staff, nice lounge areas and a happy hour which seemed to do cheaper drinks between 18.00 and 20.00. The dinner menu was limited but excellent food in nice surroundings, especially the...

I arrived at the very tail end of the season, and this review is written for others who may choose to visit when the whole tourist thing is not in full swing. In a nutshell, the hotel is essentially fairly basic, pleasant enough, clean - but little things like cushions being left on the floor by the maid service rather...

The hotel has beautiful views over the lake and the hotel is really nice as well. The rooms were clean and the help and service in the lobby was excellent. They answered all our millions of questions that we threw at them: from tours to where we can get laundry done. The breakfast buffet is delicious and filling. I would...

The room and service are excellent. Really exceeded my expectations. Great breakfast too. It is a bit far from the city center, and they only have transfer (every 30 min) from 5 pm on. This happens cause during the day everyone is away taking the obligatory tours in Calafate. Still, it is a nice mile and a half walk near...

The overall rating this hotel should receive excellent except for the restaurant. We ordered an onion soup with a few slices of onion swimming in a strange broth. It is is not horrible but strange.

We were on a conducted group tour from India and had stayed here for 2-nights in October, 2014. Our room on the upper floor facing the lake was nice, clean and comfortable. The hotel being small is quite and has a cosy feel to it. There was free internet available. The breakfast which was complimentary had variety and was good....

The hotel itself is beautiful and its surrounding are even more stunning, and this should be expected from the price it charges. The two rooms I stayed were both excellent. The restaurant was very nice, too, with excellent food for both breakfast and dinner. However, this hotel is located quite far from the city center, and it's quite a walk...
