A new addition to our list of recommended hosterías in El Calafate, Blanca Patagonia is a cosy and welcoming 12-bed B&B located on the way out of El Calafate. While the location on the edge of town may not suit everyone, for us the sweeping lake views and quiet position more than make up for this.

Blanca Patagonia is located in a quiet residential area around a 40-minute walk from the centre of El Calafate on the way towards Los Glaciares National Park. With taxis into town costing as little as 100 pesos, it’s quick and inexpensive to reach a wide choice of restaurants in the evening.

For us the main selling point of this small and simple hostería is the views. Built up a hill in an area of El Calafate without much development, it has almost unobstructed views of Lago Argentino. These are best appreciated from the hotel’s cosy living room and breakfast area with floor to ceiling windows.

The hostería’s twelve rooms all face the lake and are divided into standard and superior rooms with two suites that have their own Jacuzzi and fireplace. We’d recommend paying the extra for a superior room positioned on the second floor where the views of the lake are more impressive. There are also four private cabins that are suitable for families and groups of friends.

Other features at the hotel include a deck with loungers overlooking the hostería’s pretty gardens, an indoor Jacuzzi with views over the lake and a small games room.
