“Kosten Aike” means “place of the winds” in the traditional Tehuelche language of Patagonia, and in this lodging on the windswept plains of El Calafate, you’ll find this indigenous people has left its mark everywhere: in the textiles, paintings, ironwork, even the bedspreads. This is because the hotel was designed and decorated by local artists, as a tribute to the tribe’s legendary hospitality.
The Kosten Aike Hotel is located in downtown Calafate, just steps from the city’s shopping, restaurants, and cafes. With its all-wood frame and gabled roofs, its exterior is visually striking. But it’s the hospitality and personal attention found inside that really shine, making this one of Patagonia’s most distinctive lodgings.
