The gateway to Torres del Paine has a pretty good selection of hotels. We picked the Altiplanico because we had a great stay at the original one in San Pedro before. We where not disappointed by the Patagonia brother: nice ecofriendly architecture (with an interesting exterior insulation made with raw earth bricks), and home made feeling to it thanks to the numerous home-made lightings and furniture; very friendly and helpful staff, and excellent food.

The Singular patagonia: it’s architecture and recycling of a former cold storage plant built in the early 20th century are absolutely stunning, not so is the service at the restaurant.

They also turned the plant into a museum that’s worth a look.
