The Hotel Alto Calafate is a hotel that very much lives up to its name. Built on a small hill that overlooks the main town, it had been designed along the lines of an Alpine chalet. The rooms all face out to the town and, beyond, Lago Argentina and so, from everywhere, you are offered stunning views. Add to this the spa facilities, good service and a great restaurant and you have one of our favourite hotels in the region!

This relatively new hotel is one of the wave of new properties that have sprung up around the town in the last few years and is a welcome addition to the choices available.

The locations of the Alto Calafate affords it outstanding views out across the town to the Lago Argentina and beyond. With this view very much in mind, all of the rooms and the main communal areas are all offered the view and it is well worth it.

On top of this, all of the rooms have been well furnished and have all of the features that you would look for in a hotel of its standard. The service and main dining and relaxing areas are also warm and hospitable as well as being very comprehensive. If there is one criticism of the Alto Calafate it is that it is located at the other side of town to the glaciers and so it can make for a long day to get out there and back. On the other hand, it also then becomes easier to get to other destinations in the areas such as El Chalten.

Great views, very good service and food, good facilities

Located a little out of the town on the wrong side for glaciers
