“it is terrible,never more this Hotel in my life”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The bath room is not clean at all,my room either.,and it was so small that I didnT have any chair or little table to sit down..... .At night there are beautifull girls at the reception halln that I think may be for people to pass the night.You can imagine a 4 stars hotel(so classified) that has at the reception a card written',if you want to change for a better room you just have to pay US$ 19.00 per night...., what for ,if you are in a 4 stars Hotel .The reception at night is the worst,they do not care about you at all.I asked to change my room.they promised each day and never did.,Many peolple were saying the same.Elevators some times didn `t work.....restaurant just for breakfast,at night is closed.....I am talking of Unique Madero Hotel,calle Chile 80,because I see others Madero Hotel that I don`t know at all.At 16 pm,rooms are not clean,they told me(people that clean up) that they must clean before the rooms of people whom lives the hotel(to put more people and our room?...they don`t have a good service at all..it is a shame for Buenos Ayres,a loss of monney for visitors.I will never go again to this Hotel,hope will help others travelers to don`t waste their trip;....Silva Maranca...São Paulo,Brasil.

Room Tip: This Hotel Unique madero Hotel is not a good Hotel,not even to tell frieds to go there.....far away...

The hotel is close to restaurants at Puerto Madero and not far from the San Telmo neighborhhod and downtown. Comfortable and clean. Not fancy but well organized and at an economic rate. Rooms are spacious and tidy. Breakfast is OK (with a wonderful view of the city).

I visited Buenos Aires in September and stayed at the "Hotel Madero". This hotel is located in the Puerto Madero district. Just outside the front door of the hotel you can begin a stroll along the water and visit any of the restaurants, coffee shops, bars and deli's that the area has to offer. The hotel itself has a contemporary vibe and is very nice for Buenos Aires standards. Our hotel room was well appointed and was very clean. I would say the hotel is a bit worn but it is kept up nicely. We did have breakfast at the hotel and it was good and provides a lot of variety. My stay at this hotel was very short but I would go back and I would recommend this hotel to friends. It is within walking distance to the financial district. Be very careful when traveling to Argentina. We found the people of Argentina to be nice and friendly, but a friend had his watch stolen right off his wrist by motorcycle bandits while walking in the financial district. Do not flaunt your cell phone or any jewelry.

If you need to be close to Puerto Madero --or even if you don't, but want a good hotel, with a comfy room, good bath and shower, complete breakfast with a beautiful view, this is it. If lucky enough, you'll be greeted by Patricio at the front desk, a most helpful, agreeable, knowledgeable young gentleman who will be ready to answer your queries and sort out your problems with a smile!

I booked the hotel based on faulty information on Hotels.com. Hotels says the rooms all have washers and dryers and that was blatantly wrong. It was also close by Casa Rosado and Retiro so booked it. The property is dated and worn but the front desk staff was excellent, breakfast good enough, and for one night it was okay. I may even book it in the future since it is very close to San Telmo which is where I like to stopover in BA.
Diego, Pablo and Patrick were excellent and if I do book this property again it will be because they did such a good job I can overlook the worn out feeling of the furnishings.

I have stayed in Unique Art Madero twice in the last year. It is nice and clean, in decent walking distance to Puerto Madero as well as shopping and San Thelmo.
The neighborhood during the day is good at night just take a cab. This is in an area of a university and across the street is a newspaper so during the day lots of action but at night it is quiet.

My stay came with free internet in the room. You also have a slow computer in the lobby if you are just checking your emails online. I printed by boarding pass there since that computer is hooked up to the reception printer. Nice for them to let me use it.

On my last trip in April I also asked them to be allowed to stay longer in the room. Their check-out time is already generous but they had no problem for me to check out an hour later. Helped me a great deal.

The rooms are small, yes. At least some of them are. The layout is of an old building that they renovated and made into a hotel. The lobby is huge while the rooms are subdivided strangely.
Normally it should not matter. You are in BA and should be outside not in your room.

I agree though the rooms could use an update. The fact they are white on white...obviously you have never stayed at the Delano in South Beach for $500-night. It is a trend and artsy.

Yes they could do more with this hotel but if they did the price would be double and more.
For the money there is no better value.
