                lower your expectationsPictures lie. And some reviews are not as accurate as you'd like them to be. It was centrally located, but that, really was the only positive thing about it. No elevator to the top floor, narrow wooden staircases, and even narrower, very shaky beds. Staff was nice, but it doesn't compensate for the rest. Breakfast was typically mediocre as in most hotels, it seems. They couldn't even bother with real orange juice or freshly brewed coffee - everything was powder to be mixed in with water. It's a shame they use their central location as an excuse to let customers down in other areas.

                lovely hotelwas a lovely room and very clean. Only 5 mins walk to centre. Down side breakfast was very basic and if too many people came down to breakfast at same time they would struggle to cope, running out of knives plates etc. The morning breakfast staff were sullen and did not speak or even try to understand what anyone was saying if you didnt speak Spanish. The laundry service does not appear to work as when we asked for laundry to be done (and did not expect a rushed service) we were told they were too busy. Safe deposit box was with the staff at reception, but if you got one that did not speak any other language there was no hope of using this service. Having said that it was good value for money

Queda muy a mano del centro de la ciudad, y de los principales lugares de interés. En resumen recibimos un excelente valor por el precio pagado.

                Posizione

                L'Hosteria Austral è in una posizione eccellente perché in pochi passi si può raggiungere sia la stazione degli autobus sia il centro della città. Le camere sono comode e spaziose ed il personale è gentile e disponibile. L'unico problema riscontrato è stato quello di non riuscire a connettersi al wi-fi poiché eravamo in una stanza dove non arrivava il segnale. C'era comunque la possibilità di connettersi nelle zone comuni. Tutto questo ad un rapporto qualità prezzo che penso non si riesca a trovare in altri posti a El Calafate.

                버스터미널 3분 거리, 마켓 1분 거리.

                시설 대비 비싸요. 주인분은 무뚝뚝 하시고, 방에서는 와이파이가 전혀 안되서 리셉션 바로 앞에 가야 쓸 수 있어요. 1월 숙박임에도 잘때 추웠어요. 도로에서 호텔 입구까지 언덕이어서 계단으로 짐을 들고 올라가야하는 점도 힘들었어요. 장점은 버스 터미널에서 3분 거리에 있다는 것과 마켓과 다운타운에서 1~2분 거리에 있다는 것이예요.

                хорошее расположение плохого отеля”

                хорошее в этом отеле только его близость к центральной улице

                Отель удачно расположен очень близко к центральной улице Калафате с ресторанами и сувенирными магазинчиками. На этом достоинства отеля заканчиваются! Номера старые неуютные и плохо отапливаемые, ковровое покрытие затоптанное, в ванной нет шампуня, горячая вода идет плохим напором. В номере нет не только сейфа и холодильника, но даже телефона! Чтобы что-либо узнать на рецепции надо выходить практически на улицу и спускаться по ступенькам на первый этаж, рецепция в отдельном помещении всегда запертом, надо звонить, а вот там тепло и хорошо топят, но гости там не живут. Звукоизоляция отсутствует как таковая, слышно всех соседей и даже как они ходят по комнате. Завтраки скуднейшие. Апельсиновый сок на завтрак - это порошок, разведенный с водой из-под крана прямо на глазах у гостей отеля. Если есть выбор, то лучше не останавливаться в этом отеле.
