Hosteria Sierra Nevada is squeezed between two main roads. We hardly slept a few hours per night. The cars were speeding up and down the streets and the howling and barking dogs kept us awake two of the 4 nights that we had booked. We decided to leave and checked into an excellent 4 star hotel for the two remaining...

This hotel is located about 4 blocks away from the start of downtown Calafate (which is very small to begin with) so after dinner the walk back was the smallest bit of a hassle (it was embarassing to take a taxi for 4 blocks) because one person in our party had limited mobility, but other than that the location is...

We did not stay at the hotel but did eat at the restaurant. In fact, the quality was so good, service so friendly and prices so reasonable that we came back a second night - something we rarely do, even at home. This place was one of the few we found that could still be considered an incredible deal. Wines...

We were on our own in Patagonia after a business trip to Buenos Aires. We found this hotel through a travel agent in Buenos Aires which we would also recommend ( PATAGONIA-ARGENTINA.COM--http://www.patagonia-argentina.com/i/) after asking to be housed in the city rather than on the outskirts. The location was convenient, on the main street. Our room, as is true with most...

At first, pleasant surprise. Warm and cosy, large well appointed rooms. Dont be fooled. It s impossible to have a good night´s sleep here. Noisiest hotel I have every stayed in: paper thin walls, very unpractical keys which make a fracas and take forever to open the door - so you know exactly when your neighbours come back in. I...

We were in El Calafate to see the glaciers and the beautiful land of Patagonia, and I booked us into the Sierra Nevada hosteria. The lodge is very new with beautiful gardens and has an amazing view of Lake Argentina. It is towards the end of the town, which means you are close to last one on/first one off for...

A great place. Seems brand new! Staff speak English and very helpful. Beautiful location at the edge of El Calafate but within easy walking distance of everything in town. On-site restaurant, contintental breakfast (very good) included. They even provided pack lunches for your journeys to the glaciers.
