Hotel Mustapic: Relatively Cheap and Central

Having come back to town and spending more than I could really justify on the trip to Antarctica, I was searching something that was much more economical, yet comfortable enough for both my father and I.

Not having seen the hotel before coming, I was relying on photos, maps and prices. The price was right, about $90US for two people in peak summer time. The photos all looked nice as the place was clean and well cared for. The hotel was located about 7 minutes walk from the main downtown streets.

My only real complaint was that the room and the beds were small, as in if it was an old European hotel. We slept well, but were glad we were not traveling with large bags because there would not have been any room for us to walk.

The staff were friendly. At least one staff member is working during day/evenings that speaks English in case you don't speak Spanish.

Breakfast is included, served on the 5th floor with nice views of the town and the Beagle Canal.

There is no elevator, so is not a handicap friendly hotel.

Tierra Mistica Cabanas: Great place and location!

I loved this hotel. The cabanas have a very rustic look, just about everything is wood. Our cabana had a small living area, full kitchen, dinning table and bathroom w/shower. On the second floor were two bedrooms with two beds in each and a bathroom with no shower.

The staff were very friendly but limited on English. The location in right in the center of town and many restaurants and activities are in walking distance.

Mil810: Downtown and close to Port

We stayed only one night before setting off for the Antarctic.
The staff are very friendly, the hotel is new with clean modern lines. The room was a little small, but for one night it was OK, the bathroom was very nice and up-to-date.
They provide breakfast, which is mostly continental style, but do not provide dinner.
I would recommend this place for a night or two.

The views of the town and harbor are great from the dining room on the 4th floor, which also has an outside area too if you want to brave the cold - even in summer!

The heating was kept pretty high in the hotel, which for some would be nice, we found it a little oppressive at times, but it was simple to open a window and let the arctic air in!

Timaukel Cabains: The comfortable Cabains

They are located just 3 km from Ushuaia and 2 km from the International Airport ( a bit far away, but a short distance if you have a vehicle to move around the city).
To the extent that we are many in my family, we usually like to stay in cabins everywhere we go, but with more reason in Ushuaia were a cabain allows you to avoid going to eat at restaurants every day ( the food is very expensive in the city, at international prices), and develop your activities with more tranquility and not be tied to fixed schedules.
Full of services, the cabains are localizated beside Pipo River and sorrounded by a Lenga forest and inmersed by mountains with beautiful snowy peaks.
It has hot water service, kitchen with complete tableware, fridge, Microwave
Heating in all rooms, Direct TV, Cot, Hairdryer, daily towel and linnen change, Telephone, housekeeping everyday, Parking for each cottage within the establishment, Breakfast Included ( and what a breakfast my god, we even could not finish the enormous american breakfast and wewe kept the croissants to eat them during the day) Luggage Storage, optional Transfer Sevice from the airport and Wi Fi

I think the fact of being immersed amid the nature is the best unique feature of the cabins, unlike those that are located in the city center where it is more difficult to appreciate the beauty that surrounds the city. Another of its great advantages is the cheap price it costs the stay

Hotel Malvinis

We had a very pleasant stay at the Hostel Malvinas. We were just two blocks up from the harbor area. It was far enough away that you could avoid the tourists from the daily cruise boats, and yet close enough for you to walk the streets of the city and enjoy the harbor once they all left. The rooms were spotless and comfortable enough for two people. The staff was very helpful and polite. If you contact the hotel ask for Mabel. She speaks excellent English and is very helpful. Our room was in the front and had a excellent view of the harbor and the city.

I have uploaded several photos here of the hotel. I have included several that show you the view from the rooms window.

The hotel provides breakfast each morning. There is also internet service available.

Hostel Yakush

We spent 7 nights in all in Yakush - one before our Antarctica trip and six after including Christmas Day. It's a friendly and popular hostel and, in a city where all tourist services are expensive, offers good value rooms. We stayed in a double with shared bathrooms which cost 130 pesos per night. The people running the hostel were very friendly and welcoming. Also, it's one of the cleanest hostels we've stayed in so far on our travels in Argentina and with an older crowd than you generally find in hostels, there's more of a quiet atmosphere. The location, at the western end of the main street, Avenida San Martin, is also good with all the amenities you might need very close by.

Cap Polonio: Best located hotel in Ushuaia

Located in the (only) mainroad in Ushuaia it is a plearure to stay here.
Next to different shops (mainly clothing and souvenirs) restaurants and bars.
The rooms offering a view on the bay makes even in the night your stay like a postcard of the most southern point of the world.

Hotel Cap Polonio: Basic tourist hotel

I stayed in Hotel Cap Polonio for two nights before I left to Antarctica.
Cap Polonio is situated in the main (shopping) street of Ushuaia, San Martín. San Martín is always full of cars, especially taxi's that try to pick up some tourists. As there are too many taxi's and as there is one-way traffic in San Martin, taxi's keep on driving in circles: after they've 'done' San Martín, they drive back along the water front, one street lower.
I would say that Cap Polonio about what you can expect of a small hotel at the end of the world, where the big hotel companies have not yet invested money. Cap Polonio is not a hotel that I would chose in a less remote area. The reception and restaurant look very good and offer quality food, but the rooms are basic and not well maintained (though everything works more or less). They have apparently forgotten to paint the rooms and repair damages for the last 20 years.
The bath tube, toilet and wash basin were at least 40 years old, probably older. The windows in our room were very small, so there was always insufficient daylight.
Ushuaia is situated in a nice bay and surrounded by high mountains and beautiful nature, but you can't see any of this from the hotel and the majority of the rooms.
When I came back from my trip to Antarctica two weeks after I had stayed in the hotel, I had to spend about 5 hours in Ushuaia before I could check in for my flight to El Calafate. The hotel staff was very helpful and stored my bags in the reception.

Hosteria Linares: Great View, Great Price

Stayed at the Hosteria Linares as part of a 3day/4night package in Ushuaia mid-March. It's a great hosteria (Guesthouse) and very reasonably priced especially as when you're out every day on excursions. Room was ensuite, and at the roadside of the house so perhaps a little noisey but more due to the fact that the rare passing car seemed louder in the relatively peacefullness, (I imgaine the buzz on Ave San Martin is louder).
I would defintately recommend this a place to stay, esp if you don't want to break the budget on Hotel but would prefer not to stay in a hostel. Also as a single woman travelling alone, (with very little spanish!), felt really safe & well looked after

It has retained much of it's character from when it was a private residence. It located just behind Ave San Martin, which means due to it's elevation it has fantastic views from the balcony, you can have breakfeast watching the sun making it's way past Mount Olive. It's close enough to Ave San Martin (just a minute down the steps)so that you can wander the shops and restaurants.

Cabanas de la Barranca: Almost like home

We had a very nice condo that was about 5 minutes by auto from downtown, in a new sudivision.
Everything we needed was there plus a very nice hostess.
There was a convenience store nearby with an internet, restaurants were very close for fine dining, and mountain views from every window except the kitchenette. From there you could see the channel.
I would highly recommend staying here for the value and the amenities.

There is a loft bedroom with a queen size bed. There is also two twin size beds downstains. Cable TV, microwave, fridge, and Gracie delivers a breakfast tray every morning.
