When Do You Want To Go?

Hotel with Great Facilities, Service and Located on a Hill Offering Some of the Best Panoramic Views in El Calafate

Alto Calafate is located in a spectacular location on a hill overlooking the Argentina Lake and the town of El Calafate. With 103 rooms, spread across 3 floors, this hotel has much to offer its guests and comes highly recommended. Relatively new, the hotel was built in an Alpine Chalet style and wherever you are in the hotel, there are large windows that look out to El Calafate Town and beyond. They are some of the best views from a hotel that we have come across. A great destination for Argentina holidays.

The Alto Calafate restaurant offers a magnificent view of the Argentino Lake and the Patagonian steppe. The restaurant offers a combination of Patagonian cuisine with a variety of fish, lamb and beef as well as a buffet breakfast every morning.

The hotel in El Calafate has a nice Spa area with attractive pool area and a small gym. There is a good range of treatments for those looking for some relaxing indulgence at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

The rooms are well appointed and are tastefully furnished with all the necessary amenities and facilities that you would expect from a good standard of hotel, all of which face out towards the town. The only point that you should note is that it does require a taxi or the free shuttle to town, but in our opinion, this is well worth it.


  • Some of the best views in El Calafate
  • Great Services and Guest Facilities such as the Spa and Gymnasium
  • Lovely restaurant and great Breakfast included
  • Peaceful location on hill with no other hotels nearby

In Our Opinion
