Design Suites Bariloche

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our check in and check out was excellent. We got double upgrad for being Orbitz Platinum. Room was warm and comfortable. We appreciated that they have CNN Chanel. Breakfast have the same selection every day but was very good. If they added fresh squeezed juice I will give the facility a 5star rating. Overall we were very happy to book this hotel which made our visit more enjoyable.

We booked a junior suite, with hot tube in the room. The best decision ever! The lake view from your private hot tube is uncomparable! Very good breakfast and food. Hotel is well located but I would recommend to rent a car to anyone going to Bariloche, independently of which hotel you choose. This hotel was one of the best ever for us!

The hotel has beautiful views, a comfy Jacuzzi, mediocre food, and very poor wifi. The hotel charges for ice... I thoguht this was interesting.

This is a nice modern apartment. Could use a few repairs. Very comfortable bed. Clean. Very helpful and friendly staff.

First thought-very clean. Next, staff very helpful and friendly. The heated swimming pool was wonderful and topped off with a gorgeous view. Full breakfast was tasty and filling. The cleaning staff -great attention to detail & friendly. Tour assistant knowledgeable.

Goal was skiing, but we were able to enjoy this nice and pleasant hotel. It is simple but very comfortable and clean. Very conveniently located and easy access to good restaurants and main attractions.

Beautiful city and amazing room. Just Perfect. Ask for the Junior Suite in front of the lake.

Great place to stay!! A cab from the airport to this place is between 80 to 120 pesos ( Dollar is VERY strong in Argentina, it ranges from 4.5 to 5.5 dollars to 1 peso) . This hotel is NOT a great place for people with disabilities. So if you are on a wheelchair find somewherelse to go, hotels in 3rd world countries are not required to follow accessibility laws like in the States. The hotel has a little van that can take you to your building and pick you up (they dont tell you that when you checkin). I only used it once on my checkout so i didnt have to drag my luggage in their gravel driveway. My building was at the top, it's a 3 minute walk to the main lobby where bfast is served. Bfast is very repetitve but good. this hotel like many other business in argentina is way UNDERstaffed. One server does it all. A lot of times there werent plates nor glasses at the counter because the server was busy cleaning another table or adding more scrambled eggs. The room is VERY warm, heated floors, it has a bathtub with a great view. The floor is a little beaten up but ok. One of the great things about this place is that it's not downtown. it's a 5 minute drive from downtown (US$ 4 for a cab). So you are not where it's noisy and busy but close ebough to get there fast and cheap. For those not willing to overpay for a coke, there is a little grocery store located about a mile West of the hotel where you can buy stuff for 1/3 of the price of what they charge at the hotel. It's a pretty 1 mile walk. There is also a fitness room, heated pool (it wasnt that warm), spa etc. i recommended it!

Perfect room, specially the jacuzzi

Very comfortable. Nice location and lovely views. Good idea to have a rental car since the dining options are limited at the hotel and getting public transportation or taxis is inconvenient

The hotel building is nice, rooms are good, but it misses a lot on the details: 1. Pillows: for me, comfortable pillows are decisive for comfort. The hotel offered just one type of hard pillows, which is an absurd for a 4 star hotel; 2. Staff: very rude people not willing to help. 3. Room service: They wanted to charge me $10 pesos to bring a spoon to my room. I was forced to get dressed and go to the restaurant at almost midnight just to pick up a single spoon that they refused to bring courteously. On another occasion I paid $15 pesos for a tea. They brought only 1 tea bag. When I asked for 1 more tea bag, they wanted to charge me $15 pesos more. With that price, I could purchase 3 boxes of that tea in a grocery store. Courtesy is not their way. 4. Breakfast: the selection was just ok, but items are in fault all the time and people have to keep waiting for replenishment. The hotel was full and they kept putting small portions of everything, which was annoying. The worst was that they only replenish after someone complains. 5. Spa Pool: For people who like it warm, not good. The temperature was around 28 degrees Celsius. Overall, I had an ok stay, but got annoyed with the lack of attention to details at this hotel. I'd stay here again only if I had no better option.
