Located right at the edge of the town, at the southern entrance to the valley, Hotel La Aldea is a very simple hostel in all reality and so offers simple fare and even more simple rooms….the one thing that it really can boast, however, that none of the other hotels in town, is that it has a view of the mountains! It is the only hotel that has this feature and so is a real rarity and it almost makes this small hotel worth staying in!

The rooms have had a lick of paint since the new owners have moved in and so the bed rooms, while small, are liveable. The bathrooms, however, are a different matter and are really in need of a bit of work. They have been designed for optimising the space and so it is a matter of manoeuvring yourself in order to close the door and to then use the loo. The baths have not been resealed in as long as they have existed I would guess.

All of this does simply pale into insignificance when you look out of the window at the view. The service in the hostel was good and the new owners are very nice. They have, somehow, gotten themselves linked with the Alto Calafate and a few other top end hotels around Argentina which is very misleading as this definitely isn’t in the same league…with the exception of the view!!

Stunning views of the Fitz Roy, good service, good communal area

Very simple rooms
