Kosten Aike Hotel
Smart, modern and cheerful hotel with a charming alpine feel and cosy rooms dotted with motifs from the local indigenous culture.
The Kosten Aike Hotel is a couple of blocks from the main street of the Patagonian resort town of El Calafate on the shores of Lake Argentino. It’s a smart, modern place, and its sloping roofs and exterior wooden balconies give the building a charming alpine feel.
The bright rooms are decorated in cosy, contemporary style with heating, cable TV and modern en suite facilities. There are artistic details and motifs from the local Tehuelche indigenous culture featured all over the property.
There is a dining room, kitchen and bar on the first floor, and a stone-flagged living room with sofas and a large open fireplace. On the top levels are a gym and spa, with a Jacuzzi, sauna and massage area.
