The hotel was seized by the newly revamped Argentinian government in 1955, if I recall correctly and is currently in a very poor state. The preeminent researcher and the true discoverer of the South American situation, Harry Cooper has actually stayed here. As did Albert Einstein and a whole host of other famous folks way back when. It was, at the time, exceptionally remote and therefore quite safe. The Fuhrer and his Mrs. stayed in the Annex.
The photos above were taken in 1947.
History! Real History.
