Harriet recently stayed at the motel-esque La Aldea in Chalten, here she reviews and gives her top tips for staying there.
La Aldea has a slightly motel-esque feel with external doors on all the rooms leading off from the garden and a first floor balcony. The rooms have all your basic requirements, hot shower, comfy bed, clean towels and sheets but they are a bit dated.
Laminate flooring covers the floors, the shower rail is easy to fall down and there is a cheap/antiquated feel to the fittings.
The Aldea has the best internet in town, is close to the bus station. It is a good option for those looking for a private room with bathroom on a budget.
Top Tip: Upstairs rooms are better than downstairs because the wooden floors make the downstairs ones noisy.
