We had the most wonderful time at el pilar. Guillermo and Christina are the most wonderful hosts. They told us where to hike, organized our transfers and made us feel at home. Worth going to el huemel private reserve. Fantastic food and beautiful view. A very very special place.

El Pilar is a mountain lodge set at the foot of Mount FitzRoy. The town of El Chalten (a group of small charming homes and hotels huddled together) is about 30 minutes away. El Pilar is set off by itself, small and secluded located at the crux of several hiking trails. The view out the front door is amazing, the...

My husband and I stayed here on our recent trip to El Chalten. It is located 17km out of town, so you either have to get a cab (which you can pick up in town), or or rent a car (which most people do) to get to it. It is worth it! There are a bunch of trails that either...

El Pilar is terrific! While the location is 17 km outside of town, that suited up perfectly. It is very attractive, the views are stunning, our room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Due to dietary restrictions, one of us had limited choices for dinner, but food was tasty and well prepared and plentiful. Christina and her staff were very...

My husband and I stayed here in early Dec. 2011 after three nights backpacking and camping in Los Glacieres National Park. It was excellent! The place was charming, clean and comfortable. We had heard only good things about the place and were still surprised with how wonderful the place is. It is a truly picturesque place in a magnificent setting....

We loved this hosteria, it was charming with excellent food, and good value for money. The staff were exceptionally helpful and made us soup when we arrived late at night after a vehicle breakdown. Loved the surrounding walks and the whole atmosphere of the area. Would heartily recommend this hosteria to anyone

We loved our stay at El Pilar. The beautiful and quiet setting in the shadow of Mt. FitzRoy was exactly what we were looking for on our trip to El Chalten. The service is gracious and friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and the food is outstanding. We were in Argentina for two weeks and the two dinners we had at...

My husband and I stayed one night at Hosteria El Pilar and our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by "William and Christina", an absolutely delightful couple who made us feel at home instantly. The setting of the hosteria is breathtaking and provides incredible views of Fitz Roy. We hiked two...

Sitting way up the valley, almost in the river yet with a view up to the impossibly impressive spikes of the Fitzroy Range, this little refuge is a cosy haven from whatever weather the mountains have in store. The staff are extremely welcoming as well as knowledgeable and helpful, and a great atmosphere of camaraderie pervades the place. It may...
