El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park: Alto Calafate Hotel

Visit Us

Alto Calafate Hotel

The Alto Calafate Hotel is a large, modern hotel with a distinctively Patagonian appearance, situated on a peaceful hilltop on the outskirts of El Calafate. Its style could be described as low-key elegance, featuring simple, high quality furnishings and earthy colours that harmonise with, rather than overpower, the subtle shades of the wilderness skies and landscapes outside.

The chalet-style building has around 100 spacious and well-equipped guestrooms, each decorated in neutral shades. Many have magnificent lake views. There is also a bar, restaurant, and a spa complete with a heated pool from which you can gaze through floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows across the steppe and Lago Argentino to the mountains beyond.

What our experts say

This is a favourite option in El Calafate. Although it is further away from town, it is very comfortable with excellent attention to detail. The rooms themselves aren’t quite as nice as the public areas, but it is an excellent choice for couples or families. Outside town, it isn't suitable for anyone wanting to be close to shops, bars and restaurants.
