As its name in Spanish suggests, Altos Ushuaia is set way above Tierra del Fuego’s City at the End of the World with inspiring vistas over the mountain-fringed Beagle Channel. You get there by road, climbing a winding route leading up to the Martial glacier, which looms above the port.
The smart yet homely hotel is built in Patagonian style with pitched roof and much use of the polished wood typical of the region, but there are many modern amenities such as LED TV and personal safe in the spacious guestrooms, which also have private bathroom with bath-tub. The suites are particularly attractive and well-appointed. There's free Wifi (intermittent), a lift and a restaurant.
