La Estepa is a rustic guest house that reflects a 20th Century Patagonian Estancia and was built by English immigrants in the early 1900s. Located outside of El Calafate, offering unobstructed views of the Lago Argentino and the Patagonian steppe,
La Estepa affords peace and tranquility. As more of a guest house, this is a great value retreat to stay in and use as a base whilst doing tours and trips in the local area. There is a cozy restaurant, bar lounge, and sociable living room for guests to enjoy.
The hotel in El Calafate is small and intimate, it has just 24 rooms in total, split into an old wing and a new wing and all the rooms have spectacular views of the Lake or the Steppe. The best thing about this property is the staff and the attention to detail and service that they offer their guests, making you feel like you are living in a home away from home whilst on your holiday in Argentina.
"A nice setting and a lovely feel, La Estepa is simple, but very comfortable and great value."
As a guesthouse facilities here are more simple than at bigger hotels, but service is second to none:
Estancia La Estepa is located on the road that runs out from El Calafate town towards the Perito Moreno Glacier. Due to an elevated location the Estancia enjoys great views over the lake. There is not much directly around the Estancia so the facilities of town would have to be reached by taxi or a short drive.
