A nice stay, we both love the hotel
Good design and view; staff are all nice and helpful.
The hotel is a bit far from center but has a perfect view of Argentina Lake. The hotel staff helped us to book the tour to national park, which was very enjoyable. The room is nice, but too hot and dry in a sunny day, as it receives all the sunshine from the west in the afternoon. The hotel also has swimming pook and spa, unfortunately we didn't have time to enjoy it. Overall, we both like the hotel and it's design and view.

The best hotel I ever stayed in
Incredible views, beautiful design, swimming pool with lake views
We were a group of 4 and all of us loved this hotel. Highly recommended. Amazing views right from your room, floor to ceiling windows, great design of the hotel and of the rooms, high quality of everything. If I ever travel to El Calafate again I will definitely stay in this hotel. On our way back we stayed at Xelena which is also a very nice hotel (a bit more pricy) but Design Suites won over Xelena in our view by a big margin. This is the best hotel i ever stayed in so far.

Wonderful hotel!
Great view of lago argentina - though far removed from city
Lovely boutique hotel - far from the city but provides shuttles in the evenings to town centre. wonderful views from the room of the tranquil lakes lined by mountains. breakfast spread limited, service decent. rooms, baths excellently maintained.

Impressive lake view - great choice
Lakeview, spacious rooms, modern architechture, swimming pool & hourly downtown transfer
We stayed at the Calafate Design Suites and we are very happy with our choice. It is highly recommended to pick one of the junior suites, which have an enormous window with an impressive view of Lago Argentino (Argentine Lake). The swimming pool is great if you want to stay indoors and just relax a bit. The gym & sauna are small, and some maintenance issues, but still ok for a 4 day stay at the hotel. Another plus was the hourly transfer to the city center. The hotel is located far away from it, so you have either this option or you will have to take a taxi. The transfer works hourly, from 6pm to 0am. Breakfast was good, with several options but maybe lacking some personnel (we arrived by the end of the peak season). Restaurant has a reduced menu, with tasty but small & expensive options. Biggest cons of this hotel: Sewage odor on toilets & tap water (this is a problem all around Calafate)

Ausicht auf den See, Kaminfeuer, Badezimmer
Ich bin alles in allem enttäuscht von diesem Hotel. Die Angestellten an der Reception waren recht freundlich, wollten allerdings Ausflugspackages von Agenturen verkaufen und sparten mit individuellen Reisetips. Die Lage des Hotels ist an sich sehr schön auf einem Hügel mit Sicht auf den Lago Argentino. Allerdings existiert kein Shuttle Service in die Stadt, so dass man entweder zu Fuss gehen musste (ca 40min) oder jedesmal ein Taxi nehmen musste (one way ca 80 Pesos!!). Der Taxipreis zum Flughafen betrug 250 Pesos. Die Spa war schmudlig und ungepflegt. Das Frühstücksbuffet sehr dürftig und die Tische wurden kaum abgeräumt, so dass man warten musste, bis sich das Personal entschied, frisch aufzudecken.
