Very comfortable base for visiting nearby Glaciers. Hotel arranged trip for us. Brilliant spacious accommodation. Well kitted out for self catering if required. Situated slightly on edge of town - but still walkable. Staff are very helpful

We were travelling with our teenage daughter. The room we got was a duplex with kitchen. It is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. From our up-stair bedroom, we had a great view of Lake Argentina. The hotel sits on the hill. It is just a 2-block walk down to the boardwalk next to the lake. I loved to run...

From Gabriela's detailed and excellent excursion recommendations (and car rental suggestion) to the fresh and tasty breakfast delivered to your room each morning, the spectacular view from the upstairs bedroom loft, and the peaceful surroundings away from the busy town - this small apart/hotel is a special place! Yes, it's a 15 min walk to town, but there are restaurants...

While the immediate locality is not the most auspicious, the views over Lake Argentina are very fine and the hotel itself is delightful. The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Very comfortable beds and good if simple breakfast. Travellers need to bear in mind that the bedrooms in the apartments are upstairs and that navigating one's way to the...

When I left Chile, I swore I would revisit El Calafate just to return to Los Ponchos! At first, I was a bit concerned about the distance I was from town, but it ended up not being that far, and was a beautiful walk along the bay with opportunities to watch the flamingos and abundant bird activity. The ambiance of...

Very good base for our days in Patagonia. Small apart hotel with very good service. Small kitchen in each apartment, and upstairs bedroom with stunning view of the lake. We had one of their pizza suppers one night when too wrecked to go out. Breakfast served from 6pm in your apartment for those having an early start. Light enough breakfast...

We were in doubt between Los Ponchos and a hotel in town and decided for Los Ponchos because it looked a lot more charming. The hotel is charming, but we were definitely not happy with our room (room 10). It's a room for 5 people and there were five of us. Problems: 1. This room is the attic of the...

The hotel is very charming. Employees are very friendly and helpful. However we stayed at room 10 that is supposed to fit 5 people. But it doesn't very well. It has only one bathroom. The ceiling is very low - I bumped my head several times. Breakfast is served at the room, but there isn't enough space. No closet. The...

We booked directly with the hotel and they could not have been more helpful. They responded to all our requests and organised private tours with reputable companies on our behalf. They also offered help in changing money when we were having difficulties., The apartments are lovely - out of town - but we liked the walk of about 20minutes alongside...
