The Howard Johnson Plaza Florida is located in one of the best locations in central Buenos Aires. It is in a lively pedestrian mall in close proximity to parks and the harbour, and walking distance to the Av 9 de Julio. The rooms are large and comfortable with classic interiors and overall well maintained. There is a spacious gym with...

This Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel is located in central Buenos Aires at the top end of Florida Street very near to Plaza San Martin, a nice expanse of green leading to the Retiro Railway Station. Florida is a pedestrian street and leads to the very centre of the city. All is within walking distance, too, of the Puerta Madera, the...

The Howard Johnson Plaza Florida is very well located, at the beginning of Florida street. It is not accessible directly by car but is only 50 meters from Paraguay street in the South and Marcelo T. Alvear in the North. Room are spacious and breakfast is quite reasonable. Service is almost inexistent.

It's a 4 star-hotel for the standards of Argentina. The first impression I got when I arrived at the reception and lobby was of a nostalgic sentimental trip to the 80's.Our room was big enough and clean. The personal was polite and the breakfast was good for the Argentinean style - they eat more toasts (the guests can make them...

Our impression of this hotel was overall good. I don't agree with saying that the staff didn't speak any English, as the staff of the frontline desk speaks English very well. No, the maid doesn't speak English, but that's not a problem. They were all very friendly and helpful. The comments about the noise of the air-con unit are true,...

I've paid for two rooms (3 adults and 2 small children), when it could've been only one room but hotel refused to accept it... regardless, the room was OK, good cleaning and the cleaning personnel was very polite. Breakfast had not many options, everyday we had to wait for backfills of coffee, milk, etc, but quality was OK. Somewhat hard...

A well situated very reasonably priced hotel. Clean and modern with free wi-fi. Free buffet breakfast with a huge choice of cereal bread, pastries etc...a great find. Everything was easily accessible from the hotel and taxi services are frequent and inexpensive. We managed to also organise a late checkout for a minimal charge which worked perfectly for us with small...

There was nothing to like about this hotel It is not accessible by road. A good 400 meters. That means, every time, you have to carry your bags from the taxi drop off to the lobby via a tiny gallery. Five guys keep standing at the gallery entrance, offering currency exchange at parallel rates. The breakfast is terrible. Definitely not...

Not like HoJo in the US. This is a nice hotel. Calle Florida is a pedestrian-only street, so the cab had to park some distance from the hotel. And the entry arrangement is a little confusing. You come in on one floor, but nothing there but the elevator. The check-in is one floor up. The street is obviously a tourist...

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.

“the room my husband and i occupied was at the back and very quiet though there was not much of a view though we really had no time to look out the window. the two other couplles in our group had front rooms on the same floor (cant really remember but i think 9th) which were also quiet and had better views but like us they didn't have any time to look out their window. in short, ask for the higher floor rooms, either front or back.”
