What a lovely hotel! The building is over 100 years old -- original floors, ceilings, doors, etc. Photos reflect what you get in person. All the staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, and their English was fantastic. We had previously stayed in Puerto Madero, but felt more comfortable and safe in this neighborhood. The hotel has several churches and schools nearby... More

I booked a double queen at a great price. Excellent service. The hotel employees are so nice! I particularly want to single out Virginia, who checked us in. Classic, historic, beds and linens very comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

Highly recommended for a first visit. It is out of the tourist areas but convienient by taxi or metro. Best to take the reasonably priced taxi and see local communities rather than the underground metro which is a couple of blocks from the hotel and almost free! We used both daily. Neighborhood restaurants are great, just ask Virgina at the... More

The hotel is outside of downtown, but within a few easy blocks of the subte, so it's easy to get to different parts of the city. The hotel is in an older home, charmingly refurbished. The staff speak English fluently and are helpful with transportation questions, restaurant recommendations, and more. Our room was very comfortable in all ways.

This was our first trip to B.A.--we booked this hotel because they had a good rate for a quad room (family of 4 adults) and good reviews.
