We stayed at the Xelena Suites for two nights in December 2009. I choose this hotel due to the good reviews on Tripadvisor and my travel agent already used this hotel. When we first checked-in, they put us on the top floor. It became apparent that they don't have any A/C, so the room was very hot (it was summer-time)....

The staff was very helpful and courteous. I agree with the previous post that the rooms can get noisy with the wind. Once we stuck the curtain where the draft was coming through, the noise stopped. Pool was fun, breakfast was good. Has great views of the lake. If you don't have a laptop, the free Internet room will be...

Beautiful view of the lake (although most hotels in this price range offer the same views) 2. Great pool setting. CONS: 1. The window in my room was not sealed proporly and cold wind came in.

it would be unfair to rate this hotel according to international standards as, well, it's at the end of the earth in some respects. but relative to other lodging to be found in and around El Calafate, Xelena is excellent. The facilities themselves I would only give 4 stars at best (the indoor/outdoor pool -- with an infinity edge out...

We stayed at the Xelena Hotel for 3 nights in September. We could not fault this hotel. It has been opened for almost 2 years and the staff are superb. Most speak some English but all of them tried to make our stay as enjoyable and relaxing as they could. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus between the town...

Firstly, the arrival over the impossibly blue Rio Santa Cruz was amazing. The tiny airport was welcoming and a taxi was really easy to find (just next to the tiny luggage carousel is a lady who will fix you up in no time). A 25 minute trip from the airport and we were deposited in front of the Xelena Deluxe...

The hotel is located in a pleasant position overlooking the lake. Transport to the centre of town is provided free of charge by shuttle bus and takes 10 minues. The hotel comes equipped with gym, swimming pool and restaurant / bar. the hotel has been recently built to a very high standard and the best thing is undoubtedly the size...

After a few weeks in hostels and guesthouses Xelena was a lovely splurge- although we had a special offer which made it more affordable. Massive bedroom and bed, all mod cons including dvd player (and dvds to borrow- why don't ALL decent hotels offer this?) amazing views over the lake, both from our room and the cool indoor/outdoor pool. Fantastic...
