Modern boutique style hotel. We had a stunning view overlooking Lake Argentino. Rooms spacious, clean & bright. Shower worked well. Breakfast was typical Argentinian but good. Had lovely pizza in bar. Nice 15 minute walk to town centre. Only slight disappointment was that the swimming pool/spa area did not open until 5 p.m..

We had a lovely big room with views of the lake and snow capped mountains which glow pink in the few moments of sunrise. The staff were polite, helpful and very professional - particularly impressive was the way that every item on the extensive breakfast buffet was always kept fully stocked. An American couple we met at the hotel were...

The interior of the hotel is quite nice. It however not at the standard that you would expect for the price we paid. Wifi works in the lobby but not in the room. The day we did not have an excursion we received at 7am a call informing that our pick-up was at the hotel, after some confusion it became...

We had a great suite with a view of the lake. Huge room with a great bathroom and really nicely decorated. Well appointed bathroom with all the extras (vanity kits, spare toothbrush, good soaps.....) The hotel's decor is quite funky and attractive. The actual building is a rather large eyesore on the hill, but once inside, you can't see that....

The hotel is really clean and the rooms are modern and huge! The decor is trendy and the staff is friendly enough. They don't have a concierge desk to help you plan excursions, which is fine if the hotel's internet worked. It does not. It is only accessible in the lobby and even there it turns on and off every...

We stayed three nights. The first two were in a smaller room with a king bed. It was comfortable and clean. The last night, after returning from Torres Del Paine, we had an amazing room. It had a king size bed, a tub large enough for two people to have a nice long soak, shower and seating area. The view...

We had a split trip as we were on our way to Torres del Paine N.P. The staff was helpful, friendly and courteous. The rooms were clean with beautiful views. We were able to walk to town and also the reserve on Lake Argentina.

The hotel is 5-10 min. walking uphill from the main tourist street. Not really a big problem. Nice clean hotel, friendly helpful staff. Good breakfast. We did not eat other meals at the hotel, so can't comment on the food. From our room we could see the mountains in the distance, as well as most of downtown.
