Having just stayed in this hotel for a night on a short trip to BA from Cordoba and onwards to Japan I can say it is good if your needs are only just above basic. With this I don’t mean it is bad place to stay at all. Rooms are comfortable enough, with air conditioning and all. Shower is also good and brekkie would be your typical Argentinean breakfast. Don’t expect eggs or anything hot; instead you will have croissants (both sweet and savoury), toast, mini alfajores, butter, preserves and Argentina omnipresent sweet: Dulce de Leche.
One thing I have found slightly annoying is that all staff are extremely young (or maybe it’s me getting old….) and do not seem to be properly trained answering the phone and leaving one on waiting whilst the caller is being dealt with. I understand the answer-within-three-rings rule but I also know that the costumer in from has precedence over the one on the phone….. In their defence this hasn’t only happened in this hotel but I’ve experienced it all over the country. So might be just the way things are round here…. One really good thing is that I arrived early and they had no problems checking me in and also gave me a complimentary late check out on my departure day. Please note check-out here is 10 am and not the customary 12 noon.
One thing I must stress is that there was a slightly unpleasant smell coming form the loo. Nothing too strong that would have prompted a complaint or a request of changing rooms, but it was there. Another not so positive thing was the noise from the street so try and ask for a room that is not facing the street.
The chaps at the desk are also very competent when it comes to act as a concierge.
Overall I can recommend this hotel if you do not wish to stay with any of the big payers and try a local chain thus contributing to the local economy.
