    The breakfast is good and the bedroom has a good size.

    Very good

    The bed and the view from the room were fantastic.

    The hotel was far to far from the town. I got fed up with being told the price in dollars and given the bill in pesos and the staff had no idea of what was going on. Hopeless,

    I did not like hotel. It did not match advertisement nor web site images and description. It does NOT have... Air conditioning. Daily transfers throughout the day. A good location. Walls are paper thin. 4 star quality. View of Andes mt (view of some trees a sprinkler)

    Overall I would have rather stayed at a better location that was relaxing.

    The hotel is more than 2 miles from downtown, on a windy and dusty road. The free shuttle service works every hour from 10 to 12 am and every half an hour from 5 to 10.30 pm. The first room I got was freezing cold for the heate didn't work. It did cost me to convince the receptionist to change the room, and when I was eady to call the Police he finally realized he had a room available. I would expect a *much better* service from a 4* hotel, and really I'd rate it 3*. I stayed there 5 days and the spa was *never* open so I'd choose some other, more reliable hotel if I was looking forward to some massage or spa treatment. The overall experience was positive *only* because I found a very good deal through Booked.net: I would not stay at Rocheter hotel if I had to pay regular fares ... not worth it for me.

    Front desk service: better not need any help for booking, excursions, etc., especially from one of the two girls ... she'll plainly tell you that you have to manage by yourself, and give you the phone numbe so you can call from your room, whatever you need. Only the last day she was a bit more co-operative and called to book the shuttle to the airport (but first she gave it a try and told me I should call them from my room ...).

    The staff were very helpful.

    Before my travel I tried to reach my hotel by phone but the number listed is for the Rochester in Buenos Aires and they could not connect me. I wish the number for the El Calafate hotel was on the website and not just the number for rochester hotels in general.

    Some boiled eggs for breakfast would have been nice

    Superb

    everything except a bit far from the downtown. while Good that have free shuttle offered.

    it takes about 10mins shuttle bus to downtown or 45mins by walk. shuttle is provided every hour from 10am-12:00noon / and every half hour from 17:00pm-22:30pm. hotel don't know which type of room I reserved, i think that's about your system error.. i was reserved twin bed with special request, but they just have the information about Double bed without any other information.. and that is not only happened in this hotel
