We went to the city of Calafate in order to visit the Perrito Moreno Glacier and then to go onwards to Chili by bus. The hotel is centrally located, the desk clerk whose name I think is either Juan or Julio gets 5 stars for his friendliness and helpfulness!!! He also speaks English very well and shared his Yerba Mate with me which my first taste of this tea. Most Argentineans drink this tea all day and carry a thermos and the mate with them. The room was okay but the breakfast was awful and I could not eat even the media lunas (croissants) there. You have to be in the common area for wifi or a common room they provide with a TV.

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights in October whilst visiting El Calafate and our experience was mixed. The staff were always pleasant and the food in the restaurant was great, however there were a few key points that meant we wouldn't rush back.

Firstly, the room does have a strange smell that we tried airing by keeping the windows open but it was snowing one day so it was a balance of letting fresh air in whilst not getting too cold. The wifi was also slow and often cut out however generally rectified itself quite quickly.

Our main piece of feedback (of which we provided in person also) is that they only take cash payment.. When staying somewhere for a few nights you end up talking several hundred dollars that you need in cash. This is made more difficult by the fact that the ATM's in town only allow you to withdraw 1500 pesos at a time, and we get charged $20-30 AUS dollars each time we withdraw.. This meant the price of accommodation was drastically increased because they don't take a card which is very strange in a town where there are a tonne of tourists.

I have to say that I like this place and my stay was very enjoyable.
First of all, I like to shout out to Caesar, the concierge, who watch a lot of British shows to learn English. Show now when he talks, he has that British accent. He was very friendly and helpful when we need to find things; especially resturants. He went beyond the call of duty and make us reservations.
Now, the room. What can I say, it was spacious, clean, firm bed, bathroom was spacious with tile tub, but the WiFi was weak and choppy.
The sunroom/computer room/library was very nice, soft and comfortable cause it over look the garden.

We stayed here two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the heat worked well. Internet was rather pretty fast and consistent.
The staff was very friendly and attentive and the breakfast was pretty decent.

We stayed at Kau Kaleshen for three nights and we don't think we could bare the thought of staying there for another second. Where to begin...

The Room - Nothing good to say here. You are welcomed by a putrid smell that is a mixture of gas fumes and a bad potpourri. Opening the bathroom window and the main door did not do much and every time we came back to the room it only seemed the stench got stronger. The shower curtain had mold on it and walls are thinner than paper (we could hear our neighbor clipping their nails and their alarm at 6 a.m.

The Breakfast - The most basic you can get. Cheese, ham and toast. Only delicacy is fresh apple mixed with can fruit. Expected a little more from a place that has a restaurant at night that is considered to be one of the better ones in the city.

The Staff - Definitely a mixture here of warm and friendly, and outright rude. They made us feel uncomfortable on more than one occasion - i.e. wanting us to pay before the end of our stay, giving us a hard time about a late check-out when they told us blatantly the room was vacant after us.

Location - Great location but the cons definitely outweigh this one pro.

Price - We did stay during on of the busiest times of their season (during a music festival), so we understood that we would have to pay a premium. But paying $180 USD is just highway robbery for what we got. And oh ya....they only take cash (in a town that runs out of cash in their ATMs - happened 3 times to us).

If you are looking to stay here, we would recommend to not even consider this dump. The city is small enough that location is not critical at all which makes Kau Kelshen worthless.
