When Do You Want To Go?

Urban Modern hotel with Great Facilities and Breathtaking Views of the Lake

For those looking for Argentina holidays with a unique experience this is the place for you. With a breathtaking setting on the highest point of the Nimes peninsula, overlooking the vast Lago Argentino, Design Suites Calafate bills itself as the spot for chic style and design in El Calafate. The decor blends local Patagonian woods and stones for both the interiors and exterior of the building, but the look created is strikingly modern. 

The 60 guestrooms have a warm feeling, feature classic designer furniture that have a Patagonian touch, floor to ceiling windows and spectacular views over the surrounding area. 

The common areas are spacious and bright, allowing the natural sunlight to pour in through the huge windows. The architecture of this building is thoughtful and considerate to allow guests to take advantage of the location and the views. The combination of modern urban design and the stunning natural setting at Design Suites is truly compelling.  It has everything you need, with great facilities and services and is a great option if you are a lover of modern architecture and design. The hotel is located around 3km from downtown El Calafate but a taxi to town is only a few pounds.


  • Good value for the standard of hotel
  • High ceilings and floor to ceiling windows offer spectacular views
  • Very spacious and modern rooms and suites
  • Top facilities and services
