We stayed at the Hotel Ariel as we had pre-booked and pre-paid for due to the fact we didn't want to miss out on accommodation in El Calafate over the Christmas period. Well, the only thing I can give this hotel credit for is its super fast wifi and slightly above average breakfasts. Other than this it looks, feels and... More

The hotel is located on the main street, very close to all the shops and restaurants. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was great. The breakfast is definitely above average compared to a regular Argentina breakfast.

The rooms are adequate, clean but with a lot of wear and tear. The location is very good being a few blocks, easy walking distance, from the main downtown area's shops and restaurants. The service was excellent. We ran into difficulties with our travel arrangements and the hotel staff worked with us to explore options (rental cars, busses, etc.). They... More

On arrival the receptionist was very helpful and spoke reasonable English. Our room was large with a big double bed and a single. The bathroom was a good size. There was no English news on the TV. There was a good choice of restaurants nearby to eat out, as Hotel Ariel wasn't serving evening meals. The breakfast was standard Argentinian... More
