Poor 2.0
Hôtel situé au centre de El Calafate à éviter. Nous avions réservé 3 nuits, à notre arrivée, la première nuit n'avait pas été prise en compte par l'hôtel. La réceptionniste avait fait le nécessaire pour nous trouver un hôtel a proximité. Merci à elle. Sauf que le lendemain, la patronne nous a fait payer les 3 nuits alors que l'erreur venait d'elle et qu'en plus nous avons remarqué qu'elle nous a fait payer la première nuit au tarif de son hôtel alors que l'hôtel où nous avions été relogés était moins cher !!! Inadmissible. Malgré nos plaintes, elle n'a rien voulu savoir. Aucun geste commercial. Pour compléter, chambre propre sans plus, chauffe eau au gaz dangereux à utiliser pas du tout aux normes de sécurité basiques, douche dangereuse nous nous sommes ebouillantés (!) et pour finir petit déjeuner pris dans une salle froide car porte toujours ouverte.

Tipica struttura ricettiva in Patagonia. Molto graziosa e la posizione è più che ottima, si trova giusto a 1 minuto dalla strata centrale di El Calafate. Ottimo il servizio colazione che è sempre incluso! Io e mia sorella ci siamo trovate benissimo! Consigliato!
