The Gourmet Restaurant, which has been distinguished by the Academia Argentina de Gastronomía with the “Grand Premio Mejor Proyecto Hotelero”, offers delicious dishes made with regional products.

This Patagonia Argentina star hotel is distinguished within the Art Category Hotel, to such an extent, that it is like the house of a great collector who opens the doors of his home to show his treasures.

Located on km 11.5 of Avenida Bustillo, 15 minutes from the city of Bariloche and from the most important ski resort in Cerro Catedral, EL CASCO ART HOTEL proposes a unique way of living art and nature.

In the 70’s and for twenty years, El Casco was a famous Inn on the shores of the lake, which attracted tourists from all over the world with its European glamour and the warmth of its owners and hosts, the German Baron Alfred and Baroness Ruth von Ellrichshausen.

Situated fifteen minutes from the city of Bariloche, the first building was constructed after the Cala di Volpe de Cerdeña Hotel (Italy), one of the many hotels that the Von Ellrichshausen family – A German aristocratic family that emigrated to our country during the second half of the 20th century –used to visit for their holidays. After long successful periods, El Casco was closed for seven years, until Ignacio Gutiérrez Zaldívar bought the property. In December 2006, the hotel was reinaugurated and Ruth kept the house next to the hotel where she now lives.

The refurbishing project was in charge of the architect Julio Coccifi and the engineer Carlos Thays. The new building was constructed with a classic, but contemporary design. Although, the only piece that was kept from the old house was the wooden and iron winding staircase, the builders preserved the spirit that it had been given by its former owners.
