The hotel is centrally located, we could walk to everywhere, even when it was rainy and windy. The hotel lobby had a nice welcoming aroma to it. The top floor has a small gym and an cabin like Jacuzzi that has nice city view to it. The service was hit and miss, the front desk was not too friendly, however,...

The first thing that made us feel at home was the attitude of the staff. They were helpful, serious and gave all the necessary information upon our arrival. The hotel is...

It is not a luxury hotel, more like a ski lodge. Our triple room was spacious on the 3rd floor and if we didn't open the window it felt like a sauna in the room. With the window open it felt pleasant. There is no air conditioning. Room and bathroom are clean but bathroom can get some updating! Breakfast was...

One of the top two hotels that I have stayed in during the 6 weeks that I have been travelling in Argentina. The hotel is like a large wooden lodge and is located two blocks from the main street. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful and speak very good English. Room sizes are large and well furnished....

An excellent hotel, two blocks from the central street; big clean and comfortable rooms; a spa centre which includes a sauna (you will appreciate this after a day of glacier touring) and amazing staff.

Good choice of little shops and prices very reasonable. They...
