Gabriel & Nicolas are both humble, lovely people who run the hotel. The rooms vary throughout the hotel. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay, they both have heaters which was nice. The first room we stayed in was a double upstairs, it was a tight fit with our our packs but comfortable and clean. With big windows...

This hotel is of very good value in El Chalten. Good location close to bus terminal, supermarkets and restaurants. The rooms are quiet and adequate. Beds are comfortable. The breakfast is very basic. See my photos attached. Wifi is exceptionally good considering it's in El Chalten. Ping latency 8ms. Download speed 1Mbps. Upload speed 0.88Mbps.

A very comfortable hotel run by a lovely couple who are keen that your stay is happy. Good views of Mt Fitzroy. Clean and spacious bedrooms. Good location (where isn't in El Chalten?). Good breakfast - the eggs could be better. Why five stars when it's not perfect? The owners are lovely people. This is a very reasonably-priced hotel. Go...

The hotel is a short walk from the bus station. The room was pretty basic with a small bathroom but was good enough for our needs. Breakfast was good served in a room with a view of Fitz Roy. Wifi was so so. The host (Gabriel) was very personable and helped us with whatever requests we had.

We only stayed there two nights after our 5-days trekking. The room was clean not that big, but we had a wonderful sight in the morning to the Fitz Roy :-). The breakfast was fabulous including fruits, cereals, eggs, cakes, bread...!! The Hotel is located directly in the heart of El Chalten. There is even a very quick laundry service,...

Short, easy level walk from the bus station and welcoming staff. Spacious common room and light spacious breakfast room. Light breakfast but Natalia will cook eggs for you should you wish. Rooms are basic ........stuffy with no opening windows............and private bathroom. Furnishings are hostel like with no added extras. Old.......but clean. We thought the cleaning staff here were excellent. There's...

Service OK, nice and helpful. Room was ample but no frills. Beds OK. Breakfast a bit poor, clearly improvable. Well located, near main street in El Chaltén, with plenty of services around; restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets, a laundry. Not too far from bus station (walking distance). It is a comfortable place to rest when tired after hiking around el Chaltén.

We couldn't find this hotel on the internet but a friend of mine recommended it and so we went. They have rooms with private bathrooms and also cabanas (apartments). The room was very small but very clean and the rooms on the back have a view of the mountain Fitz Roy (if not in the clouds). After a day of...
