Loved how cozy this hotel was. The living area on the second floor was a great place to relax. Mariano was extremely helpful in helping us plan our trip to the glacier. Also a great location in the town center yet very quiet.

Be at ease here
We had a great 2-night stay at MadreTierra. Every staff member was friendly and helpful, even taking the extra step of hailing us down before we left for the national park to make sure we had the cash entrance fee needed. You’ll have everything you need - coffee and tea any time of the day, great breakfast and close proximity to the town center. We did run out if hot water temporarily but they worked quick to fix it.

Cozy B&B
This little hotel is a great place to stay while in El Calafate. Ideally located -- on a quiet street yet very close to good restaurants and the center of town. A truly excellent breakfast, made to order with both hot and cold dishes, delighting even my gluten-free daughter, who pronounced the GF alfajores the best alfajores of our trip. The staff is very helpful and gracious. The rooms are small but well-appointed, with very nice common areas.

A cute small hotel. Nicely designed. breakfast was very good. One problem - they did not accept credit cards and insisted on being paid with cash (although it is nearly impossible to withdraw in Argentina, as of 2020)

bom hotel para casais
Hotel muito bonito, gracioso. A única queixa é que os aposentos são pequenos e algo apertados. O atendimento e o café da manhã são bons, fica a 2 quadras da rua principal, com boa localização.
