Kosten Aike Hotel

Southern Argentina

Rating: Mid-range    

Kosten Aike Hotel overview

With comfy accommodation, a good range of facilities and located just a couple of blocks from the town centre, Kosten Aike is a popular choice when staying in El Calafate. The hotel's facade is reminiscent of an alpine chalet with wooden panelling and balconies and large gables.

All rooms are generously sized and have en-suite bathrooms with a bath or shower. You'll have cable TV, free wifi and a minibar. Suites have an additional lounge and a whirlpool bath. With a choice of twin, double, triple and even a quadruple room, you should find just the room to suit you.

The hotel's main restaurant is a light, airy room open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can also try freshly cooked dishes at the grill. If you want a change of scene there are restaurants within walking distance. Back on site you can mingle with fellow guests at Aura Bar or pull up a chair by the fire and relax in the lobby lounge. Additional downtime can be spent in the games room with facilities for table tennis, billiards and table football, burning off some calories in the gym or enjoying the revitalising properties of the spa's sauna and jacuzzi.

El Calafate is known as the gateway to Los Glaciares National Park and while staying here you can take trips to view some of these impressive formations. Closer to the town you can visit the Glaciarium Ice Museum with its exhibits and information about all things icy and even an ice bar with genuine glacier ice.
