Topics: Hotels in Argentina Tourism in Argentina


The Llao Llao is a famous hotel in the northwest Patagonia region of Argentina. This hotel is situated in the foothills of the Andes, near the tourist destination of San Carlos de Bariloche. The hotel is built on a hill between the Moreno Lake and Nahuel Huapi lakes.

The original hotel, designed by Alejandro Bustillo and made almost entirely of wood, was destroyed by fire soon after its completion in 1939. A year later Bustillo built a new hotel out of reinforced concrete and stone which was renovated in 1993.

The hotel is the site of the yearly classical music festival, Semana Musical Llao Llao. Llao Llao was named "The Best Hotel and Resort in the Argentine Hinterland" in 1999.
