We had made a booking of two nights for two rooms through booking.com Confirmation number: 3525395534 but we had to cancel it due to Coronavirus pandemic since Mid-March but still no refund has been received despite many follows-up with booking.com as there is no way to contact the hotel directly, even through booking.com which is rather unusual. We could only find hotel telephone number but we we don't speak Spanish. Can the hotel provide email address so that we can prove to you that our refund is still pending and no response from the hotel to our request. We have been using booking.com for almost all our travel bookings but we must say their response on this particular refund is very poor. They keep asking proof of our payment and we shared the credit card statement for 3 times and still no progress. Moreover, their booking application won't allow us to contact the hotel directly from our cancelled booking. Sorry that I have to post it here but I have no other way to get the hotel's attention on our refund.

I have been struggling to get ahold of the hotel for a few months. Nobody is answering phone calls and emails and the website appears to be down. I have an upcoming stay that I’d like to cancel. I don’t recommend this hotel due to their lack of communication. I understand they’re suffering because of Covid, but the least they could do is respond.

This hotel is in need of a renovation. The sleeping quarters and bathroom are dated and old. Rooms remind me of a cabin in the woods. We only ate breakfast at this hotel. The breakfast buffet was also average. Eggs were scrambled and served lukewarm. I couldn’t eat anything else because of my dairy allergy. Front desk was professional and courteous. They helped us make dinner reservations in town. If you love to camp, this hotel may be suitable for you.

Had a lake view room and yes a lovely view of the lake if you can ignore the big warehouse that has been constructed to the left. Service on reception very good. Breakfast were ok, typical Argentine fare, with lots of sweet stuff, eggs, ham,cheese, etc. Better than some breakfasts we’ve experienced. Location- really didn’t bother us being a short walk to the centre, less than 7 minutes down and 10 minutes up. They do offer a free transfer from 7.30pm till 11.30pm just let them know or have the restaurant call them to collect you. We didn’t use it as the walk was needed after dinner. hill on final part but nothing too bad. Noise can be heard in room next door which seems to be the norm in tourist hotels. Room far too hot and had to open the window, again the norm down south, why they can’t provide room fans I will never know. Alas the hotel is showing its age, with damaged furniture, broken handles, broken bathroom fittings, stains etc. It was clean though. Kettle and fridge in room. If they carried out a complete room refurbishment then it would be fine despite its location.

Firstly El Calafate as a town does not do justice to its outstanding sightseeing in the area. Accommodation was not cheap and the hotel equates to an Australian motel. The hotel is located on the edge of town surrounded by industrial warehouses,abandoned blocks of land, and general shabbiness. There are unfinished footpaths leading to hotel. It is only a 10 minute walk to the main street but these are the most uninspiring streets you will ever walk. The hotel is all in the OK category , service, breakfast, room . We had a mountain room that overlooked a building site with wire fencing, there are other rooms with lake views and would have given us a better impression of the hotel.

Dear guest We are sorry that your impression of our accommodation was not satisfactory, as you say we are only 10 minutes from the main street and in case you do not want to walk the hotel has a free shuttle service that runs from 19.30 to The 23.30. As you also mention the hotel has a room with a lake view, your reservation was for a room with a mountain view in that case you could have requested an upgrade. Best regards Dario Rostagno
