Nice place, very basic
We stayed here one night on our arrival and again on our return from Torres Del Paine. Very basic. Nice clean rooms. No wifi but one computer for guests off the dinning area. Breakfast was included but disappointing. Staff were very helpful. I would stay here again.
One additional item, They are able to store your baggage while trekking in Torres Del Paine. It was very safe in a small closet under the stairs in the lobby.
Directions: About four blocks away from the main rd.

w hike with rental cars in torres del paine
We are planning to hike the W in Torres del Paine in March. We are flying into Punta Arenas and would like to rent a car and drive on our own from there to the park (rather than be stuck with the bus schedules). If we park at one end of the W and hike to the other, is there any bus or shuttle service that can take us back to our car at the end of the trek? Does it matter if we start at the Lago Grey side of the W or at the Lago Amarga side? Do you know where we can find information about any such shuttles/bus transports within the park? Thank you!
RE: w hike with rental cars in torres del paine
I only know there are regular buses within the park, but if they service both points I really can not say. If you don't get a proper answer on your question try these websites (and/or contact CONAF):
Travel Tips for Puerto Natales
El Milodón, que se extinguió hace 10.000 años , era un mamífero herbívoro que semejaba a un gran oso con cabeza de camello. Pertenecía a la misma familia el armadillo, el oso hormiguero y el perezoso actuales y se calcula que medía dos veces el tamaño de un hombre.
En 1896 , el capitán Eberhard , encontró trozos de piel en buen estado de conservación , además de huesos , pelos y excrementos y se los vendió al Museo Británico

Walking along Seno Ultima Esperanza – living skies
We walked a couple of times along Seno Ultima Esperanza (Last Hope Sound), starting at the pier along Pedro Montt, also called the Costanera. We passed the old landing stage, an ideal site to shoot some pictures!! Just outside the town is the information office of Sernatur.
The views over the bay of the surrounding mountains, still covered with snow, and further away even the Balmaceda Mountains are stunning. Everywhere along the waterfront we saw lots of seagulls and other (water) birds.
Most fascinating were the ‘living skies’ in the afternoon over this breathtaking scenery.
(It is possible to walk to Puerto Bories - about 5 km’s – in the older days an industrial complex; nowadays only a cold-storage plant and a slaughter house.)
These lake dominate the land to the south of the Torres Del Paine National Park. The lake is a glacial lake, therefore it's water are very emerald green. Anice easy hike takes you from Hosteria las Torres, crossing Rio Ascencio on a wooden bridge to the northen shore of the lake. It is the longest lake in the park and you can hike the 13 km' from the Hosteria del Torres to Refugio Los Cuernos and some 4.5 more to Campamento Italiano all along the lake shore. Or you can just go from the Hosteria, to the lake, stroll a while along it's beautiful shore, and go back.

Este Parque posee una de las más hermosas área para hacer trekking ( excursionismo), el camino a la base de las torres ofrece bellísimos senderos que cruzan pampas, bosques, ríos y lagunas , existiendo numerosos ventisqueros. Yo subí a la base del las torres, el camino es de 4 horas hasta la cima, el mejor almuerzo, con vista panorámica a las torres y después de vuelta al campamento
New definition of mild and temperate weather
We were only in Puerto Natales for a couple of days. We liked what we saw and were very impressed with the food - especially the King Crab and the Sheep BBQ.
The first thing we noticed was the strong wind as we walked from the Buses Fernandez office to Keoken Patagonia B&B. We mentioned that to Rodrigo, the owner, and he said "Oh, you are lucky. The wind was pretty calm today." As we were chatting, his garbage can in the yard got knocked over by this mild wind 3 times. I am not sure if I wanted to be there during a strong wind day.
