Large overheated off-centre hotel Jan 18, 2015
S50°20.615' W72°15.195' in a slump part of El Calafate, before the bridge to the city centre, between car repair shops and DIY-housing, this large hotel is the favourite of travel companies.
During our stay in December 2014, we opened overheated room 104 with constant noise of a compressor. Complaining at reception, they confirmed that the compressor sound was part of the heating and warm water supply system of the whole building. Turning off the heat would also result in turning off the warm water supply.
We switched to room 206 with less compressor noise, removed all blankets and opened the window. A very small effect on this tropical environment was noted. Turning disadvantage into an opportunity, we washed our clothes in the bathtub and the room temperature did a better job than any tumble dryer did.
Shower was good and the bed slept well. Wi-Fi reception was excellent and breakfast buffet good. Staff spoke English and was very helpful. City centre (Libertador) with shops and restaurants is a 10-minute walk away.
