They were too busy chatting and drinking coffee behind the bar to come and offer guests a menu or bring us a coffee! Pool staff were the same. The pool is lovely... More

Great place to get away with one stellar view! Great staff and one of the only places in Bariloche that has a solid drink selection and amazing staff. Excellent location to and from town and the mountain.

Great small hotel with friendly staff, nice modern rooms and great location to attractions. Restaurant served nice breakfast and the dinners were also very good. No issues if you pick this place you will enjoy. The hotel displays art statues and paintings in the common areas inside and outside and you will enjoy looking around.

This hotel is a perfect place for relaxation and just watch the Earth go round. Our room had a balcony with a magnificent view of the lake. Walls are covered in original Latin-American artwork, which makes it a great gallery. Staff was very friendly and ready to lend a hand.
