The old cool – as in somewhat coldish, refreshingly chilly – is a fitting description of the six-storey, 28-room block of a building. It is also a perfectly appropriate way for the hotel to be here in the middle of Patagonia’s fresh magnificence.

The Project is organized around three main ideas. First: to discover the building as a voyager who experience places not at once but through continuous steps. Second: to be sensitive with the site and its provincial character and lack of “noise”.Thirdly: to radically differentiate the intimate space of the sleeping rooms from the monumental space of public areas – Architect Sebastián Irarrázabal

The owners, Chilean climber and advertiser Hernán Jofré; Spanish chemical engineer Ana Ibañez; and French economist Olivier Potart decided to put this project together to create a place where travelers could mingle with serious mountaineers and heavy duty rock climbers thus finding avenues to share experiences and build relationships.
