Part of Chile's modern AustroHoteles chain, this intimate inn has retained an aura of sophistication even as it has grown to accommodate the surge in visitors to Puerto Natales. The hotel is named after an Austrian ethnologist who studied the native inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego. Rooms are decorated with wooden furniture, soft wool throws, and thick, dark green drapes. Newer rooms have space-age massage shower cubicles, but no bath. The exposed beams in the peak-roofed
restaurant hint at the region's frontier heritage but match the rest of the building's understated tone. In low season, prices drop by almost two-thirds.
