Recent guest reviews

We have spent 7 days in Charming Hotel. It is well located, close to center and Cerro Catedral. Rooms have an awesome view to the Mountains and lake Nahuel Huapi. The staff are very polite and always helpful. I really recommend the this hotel for a nice stay in Bariloche.

I have been to the Charming twice in the past year. Great staff, wonderful restaurant, perfect view, perfectly maintained facility and a wonderful old cat who keeps tabs on everyone. The view over the water area is wonderful.

I can summarise this review by saying that the Charming Hotel is probably the best hotel I've ever stayed at. Almost a completely flawless experience from the moment we checked in. The views from our room were incredible. We were in a master suite which had a perfect position on the hill overlooking the lake but I think you'll get a great view wherever you stay. Such a fantastic sight to see the sun glistening off the lake, with the mountains in the background. Our taxi driver told us these were the best views in the entire town and I wouldn't dispute that. Service from all the staff was exceptional. Attentive, friendly and very helpful - all the staff at the front desk and the restaurant/bar spoke English. And even nice little touches like the Mamuschka chocolates that were left on our bed by the maids after they'd cleaned the room. The breakfast buffet option was varied and delicious, and dinner at the restaurant was great. Again, with the added benefit of the views on offer while you eat. We only stayed for 3 days but my girlfriend and I had agreed early on that it would have been great to have booked a longer stay. We were gutted when we had to leave. Highly recommended!

We stayed at this lodge with my husband for our honeymoon. We were actually expecting a lot more "luxury". Like fine details in our room. Even thought it was quite clean, it had everything we needed and more, the hotel is not that well maintained. The view from the room was really extraordinary. Sometime didn't even need to leave it to enjoy Bariloche.

We stayed here about 9 months ago but still remember this hotel with a big smile. Prior to this hotel we were staying at Park Hyatt at Buenos Aires, and coming to Charming was different but most welcome. My partner had booked the premium room - the one with the giant spa as the bathroom. Now this is a great room if you are planning on taking a lot of bath / spa time. I really wanted a better view - and they were super nice enough to change our room last minute and give us the most amazing room. The view was breathtaking. We would just sit in the room and watch the mountains. There is also a fireplace in the room, and the restaurant at the hotel has really amazing food. Robert and Evo were most wonderful in helping out with everything. Very attentive, excellent service and they pay attention to your comfort. We will recommend this hotel to everyone for the rest of our lives. It's a magical place.

The rooms with a private spa included are to die for. They include a jacuzzi built for two, a kitchen, two showers, aromatherapy, and the option for (very affordable!) spa services (massage etc) inside your room. Felt like an ideal location for a honeymoon. Right on the lakeside with beautiful views from out the bedroom window. Lodge-style "cabin" apartments.

First time I visited this Hotel with my wife, we enjoyed our stay so much that will sure return in the future. Bariloche is a great international destiny for turists and this Hotel is a great choice. Dont miss the food at the Restaurant!

The Charming Hotel is outside Bariloche in a beautiful location on the lake with access to the beach. We were given a complementary upgrade to a spa room with a large deck with a great view of the lake and mountains. The deck included a Canadian flag which was another nice touch. Breakfast was good quality with a nice selection. We dealt primarily with Martin who couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful including providing recommendations on where to visit, restaurants and even finding a bank with atms that offer English as an option. No request was too much trouble. Loved our stay and the level of service received warrants 5 stars.

It is hard to fault this place. We had taken an overnight bus from Mendoza and I was really hoping Bariloche was going to be worth it after 17 hours on a bus , but it certainly was. Bariloche is truly beautiful and this is the ideal place to stay. It is taxi trip into town but the town is not main feature anyway and view from the hotel and the room is a haven. There is a beach in front of the hotel which makes for a pleasant walk The room is large with views over the garden towards the water. You can sit in the spa and enjoy the views or have a dry or wet sauna in the room. It is a short walk to the main building where the restaurant is. They have a welcome offer for one evening meal which is 3 courses and 3 chooses in each. It is very good value and a good way to try the restaurant where we ate several times . We were a little over grills at this stage and they have a more interesting menu here with more effort into the meals. The views are also lovely from the many levels of the restaurant . Service is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is not a big thing in Argentina but here there is nice selection and you can order eggs We booked a driver through reception as if you don't have a car it is limited with seeing the sights of the lakes. We had an excellent day going to the chairlift , lunch , walks and a drink at Patagonia brewery We were extremely lucky with the weather as usually it is raining and cold in May and on a clear day the views are amazing . We are thinking of returning in winter to see the place with snow. I rarely give 5 stars but this place really deserves it !!!

I cannot say how much we loved this hotel. Its name is short for how enchanting this place is. From the moment you enter the property you are blown away by the gorgeous and impeccably kept gardens. The buildings have the most beautiful feel, with heavy wooden and fragrant roses everywhere. Our room had lake and mountains view. The room was spacious, comfortable, the bed was like a cloud. The floors were heated and we had a spa, wet and dry sauna, and a bath... it was simply amazing! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everyone made us feel welcome all the time. They raised our countries' flags on our room which I thought it was a very nice gesture. The restaurant has stunning views and is very cozy. We LOVED the food, we had the lamb, the trout (in pasta and grilled) and soups. Everything was fantastic. The trout ravioli was my favourite. Breakfast was delicious. The fruit salad was to die for, the pastries and bread were incredible (all made in house). The pool and the beach access were great to have. We had an amazing time and would love to go back to Bariloche and stay in this place. The property has the best location in town, and it is beautiful.
