TravelPod Member ReviewsLago Grey Hosteria and Navegacion Torres del Paine
Our room was located with a lake view and the big, picture windows (which unfortunately did not open) gave us a spectacular view of the area. The room seemed new and was very modern looking. The amenities were top notch and included warm, terry robes. There is a small, but nice, gift shop, a nice bar with stunning views of Lago Grey, and the breakfast buffet was quite good. Unfortunately the hotel is located outside of wi-fi reception.
