We stayed here only 1 night, but were very happy, with our room, the breakfast and especially the good hot shower.
No internet - only wi-fi - may be the only drawback.
Would recommend and would stay here again.

We arise chipper and full of excitement as the weather is somewhat better, or at least not raining. After a quick breakfast, we head back up to the room to gear up. Concerned about safety and cougar in the area I ask Kim if she has her knife with her, she replies surprised “Of course i do ...what if i need to cut my sandwich in half or perhaps slice some cheese?!” Not having any cheese for this hike, I look at her confused and say “you ...
... half hike in the dark. As sun rose, the color shades changed until the mountain and landscape was in perfect light for some great photo opportunities, the lake beneath was near mirror like and I managed to get some stunning shots of this famous Patagonian mountain. I wondered around the lake and took hundreds of photos with slightly different angles, many portrait shots which eventually Ill stitch together at some point and make hopefully some spectacular panoramic ...

They take a minivan with 16 people through the Caraterra Austral in Chile from El Chalten to Bariloche. It's a 6 day journey through a beautiful ...
... we set off on the final big hike - Loma del Pliegue Tumbado - we later discovered that loma means 'small hill' - someone must have thought they were being funny when they named that, after we hiked for about 2 1/2 hours relentlessly uphill! This one was a 1000m ascent, a relentless slog which culminated in an actual climb to the view point which gave quite amazing panoramic views. Ash rushed on ahead in his eagerness to beat some other hikers to the top, and later realised Lucy had ...
... the afternoon. We knew we didn't have to race the sun, and as for weather, we wanted to start in the heat of the day (which still wasn't extremely hot). We were even able to do a food and mate stop at the viewpoint. It was a beautiful and fairly peaceful hike. It started steep, then flattened out. However, once we got passed the meadow area, we were smacked in the thighs by some seriously steep climbing. Not only was it steep, it was steep for a long ...
