Staying at Posada Los Alamos was a nice compromise between proximity to the city center (2 blocks from the main street) and amenities (pleasant location, restaurant, bar, spa, gym, indoor pool). We did not use their spa/gym/pool because we kept ourselves busy otherwise, but it was nice to know that if we wanted to - we could have.
Their restaurant is not in the same building - you have to cross the street to get there, but it never was a problem for us.
The rooms are not huge and not luxurious but comfortable; the included buffet-style breakfast is plentiful; the premises are pleasant - and I believe this is the best you can get in El Calafate (one has to keep in mind - El Calafate is a very small town practically in the middle of "nowhere").
I would consider this place more like a bed and breakfast, and for what it is - it was more than adequate.

Woke up wondering if I'd been dreaming I'd been itching or not. Had breakfast with Ellie and Susan and had a shower to wash hair as not hiking today so can have nicer hair for photos! Then we headed out to buy food and wine for glacier! Also changed my last 200 dollars. I started to notice more and more bites and super itchy. We got a couple of bottles of wine and stuff for sandwiches and snacks. Then took a walk down to the river ...
... journey the next day (28 hours!) and said our goodbyes (or see you soon, as I'd love to return and go even further south) to Patagonia. Although we didn't get to visit famous points like Torres del Paine and Ushuaia in the very south of the continent, we had an amazing time in Patagonia and I was sad to be leaving such an amazingly beautiful area. I'd love to return one day, with a bit more cash and some more time to explore what has to be one of the most spectacular areas in the ...
... bus station. This town is much bigger with a lot more restaurants and shops. This could be the place where I do some shopping.
No pics today to post...one of the most exciting things that happened today was seeing some wildlife...however, when it runs in front of the bus - no chance! Silly little rabbit. Once again, sooooo glad I had the front seat!
... Over the Andes Ranges & into Argentina we drove through huge open bare plain lands, with stubbly yellow grasses, no trees & almost devoid of livestock but obviously a very rich sheep breeding country. We drove past a lovely sheep shearing homestead/ property with all buildings - sheds, home & workers cottages all painted light yellow with white trim & dark grey roofs & white washed fences. Very classy! Later at ...
... forested hillsides and distant snow covered mountains added to the majesty. After the boat ride, we spent two hours walking the excellent steel boardwalks that snake up and down a 3km course on the hillside adjacent to the glacier giving superb panoramic views. The weather was clear and warm (T-shirt only required - is this really Patagonia) and we were mesmerised. What a day and How fortunate that we got the opportunity to see this natural wonder ...
