Charming rustic estancia about 15 minutes from downtown El Calafate. Fun to be greeted everyday by the furry, friendly sheep herding pooches. The staff at the front desk, Nicholas and Florencia, were helpul too. Hearing about the estancia life around a campfire and eating torta fritas (a fried bread) was a unique experience. They also have sheep roaming the property...

We stayed four nights at this lovely hotel and we felt like family. The hotel is close to town but away from the noise. Great food, wifi and comfortable rooms. The best was the friendly and helpful service. I want to particularly cite Mateos at the front desk who took great care of us- had wonderful recommendations and was a...

This is a converted estancia on the edge of town. It´s location is perfect. It is an easy 10 minute walk to the centre of town (not sure why people complain about its location) yet it feels like you are in the middle of the country with sheep, horses and we saw many exotic birds. The staff is exceptionally gracious...

Decent sized rooms, with nice soft warm beds. Not sure if that alone would make it 4 stars though. But the garden, and other facilities are great. Best breakfast assortment so far in Argentina or Chile we come across, especially in this price range. Also has an amazing restaurant, not just as far as hotel restaurants go, but competing with...

A lovely former sheep farm, beautiful rooms. Boutique hotel with charm and interest. Check out the 19C wool baler in the lobby, the environmentally better toiletries and the daily gaucho herding sheep. Lovely spot, quiet about two blocks off Main Street.

We spent here couple of days & we liked it a lot. The hotel is so cozy, in the countryside with all the animals and lovely nature. It is not so far from all the shops and restaurants, walking would be around 15 minutes. The staff were very polite and nice.Breakfast was ok, there were the basic choices.
