We stayed here for 4 nights at the start of our trip around Argentina. The owners of this B&B are very friendly and like many places in the area allowed us to buy a packed lunch when we did Big Ice. The lunch was really good value and included enough to keep me going. Breakfast was also fairly varied for...

This B&B is located about 4 blocks from the main area of town. It's only block off the main street, but it's at the end of the shopping/restaurant area. We found this place to be fairly average, there was nothing that was outstanding about the rooms or the staff. Breakfast was very small. The wifi was poor. It can be...

The owners are so friendly and amazing. They will go above and beyond to help. They gave us advice about what tours were available and who we could book with. Their main concern was that we make the most of what EL Calafate had to offer. They speak amazing English, so helped us organise taxis etc. They also emailed prior...

I feel guilty being truthful because the owners are so nice, welcoming, and helpful, but this is basic accommodation -- it's a place with friendly owners who provide a no-frills b&b room. My room was large, and the bed was comfortable, with industrial/basement carpeting and paint-stained furniture. The house does have a lovely terrace with a view of the lake,...

Excellent Posada run by Federico who speaks English, Spanish, Italian, and French well. Just outside the centre of Calafate but only a ten minute walk from bus station. Provides excellent breakfasts and evening meals, excellent value, will arrange taxis and tour pickups. Highly recommended.

My wife and I are coming to the close of a 5 night stay at Posada Karut Josh in El Calafate, Argentina. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay - not only because of the very nice accommodations, but also because of the incredibly friendly helpful hosts, Claudia and Frederico. Our room was perfect (#5) - spotless, well maintained, and with...

We stayed at Posada Karut Josh in January and it was one of the favorite stays during our trip. Claudia and Federico are warm, supportive and friendly hosts. The location of the B&B is quiet with beautiful views of the lake. Both Claudia and Federico know the area well and had great advice on restaurants, driving routes, and other activities....

Claudia and Federico are lovely welcoming hosts in a homely bed and breakfast. Email communication and advice prior to our trip was very comforting as it is not easy to arrange things in El Calafate from Australia. Staying at Karut Josh was like staying in someone's home. It is in a quiet location at the end of the main street...

We stayed at this family run cottage hotel for two nights while we visited the Perito Moreno Glacier and National park. It was wonderful. Claudia and Federico are outstanding hosts and treated us like family, supplying our every need. Delicious omelettes made to order by Federico every morning and a clean comfortable room. I can highly recommend this place in...

We stayed at Posada Karut Josh only one night - it was late arrival by a bus from Torres Del Paine and the next day we had late afternoon bus to El Chalten. It was our first entrance to Argentina and we wanted to see Perito Moreno glacier in the morning. The hosts were wonderful - we exchanged several emails...
