We stayed here in December 2019 during our visit to El Calafate. We had accidentally discovered this hidden gem in booking.com even though there were no reviews. Bear in mind that El Calafate is very remote and is a base to visit Perito Moreno Glacier. To set expectations, this is not your luxe hotel but it is better than most places we researched. 1. Location: It is right on the water of the Lago Argentino and about 20 minutes walk to the Main street of El Calafate - Avenida Libertador. Taxi costs about 200 Pesos ( USD 3.5 ). There is a nearby park ( Laguna Nimez Nature Reserve) where you could go for walks and watch the pink flamingos and other birds. There are a lot of friendly dogs in the area who want to walk and guide you to town. Most of the tour operators know this place and will not have any problem picking you up in the morning. 2. Hotel: The hotel just opened in Dec 2019. It is a brand new but basic hotel. We had checked other hotels in TripAdvisor and the room /facilities seemed way better. 3. Rooms: The rooms are brand new and spacious with awesome views of the lake. It seems like we are floating in the lake. The heaters keep both the room and bathroom warm and cosy. They cleaned the room every day. All the rooms are facing the lake. Finally they let us know that the phones were not working but we did not mind going to the reception for asking for anything. The wifi / internet does work. 4. Services: We got excellent service. They allowed a late checkout and booked a taxi for us to the FTE airport ( about USD 16 or 1000 Pesos ). The manager gave me an Argentina adapter as my international adapter was not working. The people at the reception speak little English and that may come across rude. We had no problems at all. 5. Restaurants: We had free breakfast included with the room. It was pretty basic. However there are plenty of great restaurants in El Calafate and are highly recommended. There is a nearby restaurant recommended in Lonely Planet but we went to La Posta and La Tablita Parrilla ( grill ) near the main street which were both great. Would highly recommend this place if you enjoy views and don't mind walking or taking a cab to town.
