Situated on a hillside and surrounded by magnificent Antarctic beech forest, just 2.5 km from central Ushuaia, Los Acebos is a modern hotel with spacious guestrooms, some with views of the Beagle Channel. The hotel's restaurant serves international cuisine and maximises the views of its beautiful surroundings with extra large windows. The bar offers a variety of drinks, both regional and international, which can be taken by the fireplace in the lounge or in the games room.
The Kosten Aike is centrally located in the town of El Calafate, one block from the main street and a short walk from the shores of lake Argentino. The charming Alpine-style building features wooden staircases and balconies, wide eaves and galleries, and a spacious yet cosy lounge with a large fireplace. The 80 rooms offer comfortable, bright and spacious accommodation.

Hotel Lago Grey is located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park. It offers spectacular views over Lake Grey and its glacier, and the mountains can be seen in the distance. There are five bungalow blocks that house the rooms, a restaurant, bar and lounge.
Hotel NH Bariloche Edelweiss is a modern hotel conveniently located in downtown Bariloche, just steps from the Main Square, the Commercial District, and the shore of Lake Nahuel Huapi. It offers 100 comfortable rooms with central heating, mini-bar, in-room safe and cable television. There is also a cosy restaurant for dining as well as a cafe/piano bar for teatime and cocktails.
Hotel CostAustralis was designed by a local architect who planned the entire facade with floor-to-ceiling windows that face on to the sound, which means that there are spectacular sweeping views from the bar, the restaurant and the lounge. With 110 rooms, the CostAustralis is the town’s largest hotel, but it retains a certain cosiness with its grass cloth wallpaper offset by wooden trim and ceilings, plants and soft lighting. Facilities include a restaurant, room service and a laundry service.
The lakeside Cabaña del Lago Hotel is close to the centre of Puerto Varas and offers sweeping views of the town and the Osorno volcano. Its location is best appreciated from the restaurant, which overlooks the lake and surrounding scenery.

Located in the heart of Buenos Aires, the Alvear Art is close to San Martin square and numerous shopping streets.
