It is not very many fine boutique hotels in El Calafate, but this is one of them. We loved our room, the service and the ambiance. The only thing they should do something about is the continental breakfast. They charge extra for eggs, and the selection of jams etc were minimal. For the price paid it would be more then... More

Although slightly far from the city center (30 min walking), it is a nice accommodation for your stay in Calafate. Rooms are spacious and cosy, employees are very nice, decoration has been done with a lot of taste. No other place in Calafate seems as nice as this one. The only con is that they offer a very basic breakfast.

Located about half an hour walk from downtown, Los Ponchos offers great views of Lake Argentina, is very quiet, has a homey feeling about it and the ladies running it are very friendly and helpful. The apartment has the bathroom, a sofa, a table, the television set and a small fridge downstairs, while upstairs is the bedroom with an immaculate... More

I loved this hotel. It is more like a quasi-apartment, but with excellent staff. The front desk staff were really helpful, super pleasant. and provided great recommendations, and I liked the design of the apartments. Very clean, good shower. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed a family of four in the family room (separate queen size bed and three twin beds in a room with kitchenette). The ceiling sloped and we are all very tall so we hit our heads. However the room was clea , beds comfortable and there was room to lay out our many bags. The wifi is spotty but... More

This is not a hotel it's more like a Bed and Breakfast + apart hotel. The hotel is beautiful although some new constructions are on the way across the street to block a little bit the view. The staff is willing to help, they provided us with a fair rental car price and an excursion to Perito Moreno. Really nice... More

The hotel is beautiful and the service is outstanding. In Calafate you are usually rushing to and from tours to the national parks, so it is nice to be able to have your breakfast in your room, at a convenient time before your pick up. Also afer a whole day hiking, bring your own wine and enjoy it with a... More

Stayed at Los Ponchos Apart Boutique with two children. Very comfortable hotel. We had two floors with kitchenette and dining room table on first floor as well as couches that converted to beds. Bedroom on second floor had beautiful view. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, came out to wave goodbye when we left. Hotel had lovely decorations from throughout Argentina.

We recently spent several nights at Los Ponchos. Before we even got there, I was extremely impressed by the service provided by the Los Ponchos staff (Martin, Patricia, Victoria), who were very helpful as we planned our activities in El Calafate. The room was very clean and comfortable, with breakfast served in your room. The hotel has a great view... More
