    Quiet, great value, comfortable

    Stayed in the quiet detached bungalow. This seems to be brand new and it was very quiet. There was an EXCELLENT breakfast and this was a perfect base for our treks into the nearby mountains. WiFi could be faster but can’t really complain considering the location. It’s a bit further of a walk from most restaurants/bars but that means 3-5mins more than elsewhere. Definitely the best option in town for the price

    Cute little B&B kind of property. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast (especially the homemade yogurt) was so good and the $10 packed lunches they offer were convenient for taking on-the-go. Comfy bed and the water pressure in the shower was phenomenol. Seriously the BEST shower I took while in Patagonia. I'd definitely stay here again when in El Chalten.

    Las chicas q coordinan el hotel brindan un servicio superlativo. La atención a los detalles para q la experiencia de los clientes sea única fue inigualable ( botella de champagne cuando regresamos de la noche de navidad para todos los huéspedes, desayuno especial cuando el transfer es a las 6 am, etc) siempre están un paso adelante ..

    A truly wonderful place that became my home for the week I was in Patagonia. It's rare to receive such an amazing personal attention from staff in a hotel. Great location, great breakfast, lovely rooms but most importantly - fabulous people running it! Thank you!

    Tati and Eugenia were wonderful and very helpful! Tati was able to accommodate us for a very late check in, she also booked our taxi to el pillar the next morning. Eugenia was just as helpful with everything and was very nice too! The hotel is nice, clean, breakfast was great! The lobby has an artistic touch to it, the owner Paz is a painter. The room is nice, spacious, has hot water, clean and quiet. Will definitely stay here again :)

    Great service and location close to the trailheads

    Nice hotel with great service! Front desk was very helpful with trail information. The rooms were very comfortable. The hotel is close to most of the trailheads and El Chalten is pretty small and walkable.
