Hotel Mundial

Reviewed 25 December 2012

On sunday nigth (may 5th 2012) I have suffered an accident at the bathroom of room 503 Mundial hotel. A got a profound cut in my arm and at the hospital Swiss Argentina they made 8 stitches.

When I came back from the hospital I realized that I slipped when stepping out of the shower because the floor was completely flooded. This happens due to the size of the curtain that allows the water to spread out in the entire bathroom. Besides that the 10 cm wall is built with tales that were cut from a bigger one, so it has very very sharp edge.

I recommend the hotel management to refurbish that bathroom, I is very easy and will avoid other guests to get hurt. Besides that I styronglly advise guests to be aware of these risks!

There are many hotels in Buenos Aires. I guess it is hard to make a choice. We stayed here it was just fine. It is centrally placed: you can walk to the historic center or take just any bus or subway to somewhere else in the city.

The rooms where kind of small. The doors where old (so they didn't isolate much of the noise from the hallway). The toilet was just fine - clean and everything worked. One very positive thing: the room had air conditioning.

The breakfast: fruit salad, bread, marmalade, coffee, croissants.

I think the place was just a bit expensive, however, in Buenos Aires, things are just expensive.

Location was the main reason why I chose this hotel and I was so happy I did it. I could walk to the Obelisc in like 10 minutes, the hotel is located on the same road as the court hose type building and there is an original statue of Rodin's thinker right by it.
here is a Metro/Subway station just two blocks from the hotel.
The area is one of the best of Buenos Aires, very safe at night and surrounded by very nice restaurants. You can also walk to cafe Tortoni to see one of the best tango shows from the hotel (kind of pricy though). Casa Rosada -Presidential Palace- is also close by if you want to walk or take a taxi for five dollars from your hotel.
The best of Hotel Mundial is the staff, they will always try ot help you and they are very courteous and friendly. Even if you know Spansih, you will find it hard to understand Argentinians very well, tehy have a distinct accent and they use a lot of local vocabulary and slang. Most of the staff could speak English at an acceptable level.
The elevators are old style (like some you will see in France) you have to open and close the door manually and it looks like you are caged in when you get in the elevator.
The breakfast is included and it like a buffet style, very good with a variety of fruits and juices.
I will go back to B Aires and I will try the Hotel Mundial again too.

Room Tip: Best location if you want to walk to main attractions.

The hotel is very centrally located in one of the busiest streets in Buenos Aires. Nice cafes , restaurants are all around the hotel. Public transportation is easily accesible and the most important sights of the city is walking distance (2-3 km) from the hotel.
It is very cool and classic building.
Rooms have nice balcony with a nice view.
Breakfast was fair.

-Downsides
The toilet in the room was very unfomfortable. It was very tight , could be designed better. Bath doesn't have hair dryer.
Walls painted with very dark and ugly colour which shows the room very dated.
Elevator was very weird.
To me the worst thing about the hotel is one of the receptionist. We tried to ask him questions about the city and transportation to the airport but he was very unwilling to answer us. He acted very rude. As we were leaving the hotel for the airport we said him bye but he didin't even say anything back. He was the man with glasses. The other receptionists were kind and helpful.

I had a nice one-night stay in this place. I would consider it a nice classic building with modern twist - classical architecture with high ceilings and French balconies, but rooms with bold modern colouring. The location is good at the main street, with places for dining nearby.

Service was efficient - they even offered early bird breakfast as I had to catch an early plane. Free wifi as well.

I was in a single room on the 7th floor. It was small, but had a large (corner) balcony. Jorge at the front desk is the man to see about anything. Although always busy, he will take care of you. The subtee (subway) is two blocks away, and you can pretty much cover the city from there. The subte cost is 2.50 per trip. Once you are in the subway, you can ride all day if you like for the 2 1/2 pesos. Soledad cleans the rooms on the 6th and 7th floors and is an absolute charm; always pleasant and smiling.

Room Tip: heat was an issue at night. ask for an extra blanket in winter

This hotel is right in the middle of the city, so it's easy to walk to or take cabs to many interesting places.
