On the main grand avenue through Buenos Aries and on the edge of the San Telmo is this good value business class motel.
Staff are business like but not especially friendly nor helpful and gave me a slightly jaundiced first opinion of this Hotel - maybe it was the 16 hour flight kicking in. The room impressed. 2 queen bed - small table and chairs. Stocked bar fridge and extensive room service menu looked good. Frigid thermostat controlled cooling was welcome. I did like the opening windows and the chance of fresh air. The bathroom had a combined shower/bath, toilet and bidet. Rooms were nicely clean and furnishings of reasonably good quality. The 3 lifts service the floors well even during peak times. Good eating choices are within walking distance along with small supermarkets. Florida Mall is about a 15 minute walk away. The front desk organized a good and reasonably priced and professional transfer to the airport.
I especially liked the buffet breakfast. Its been a long time since I saw such a good quality range of foods. We had this as part of our tariff and if its an option for you I would take it.
Other than standoffish front desk staff their is also no tea or coffee facilities in the room nor an alarm clock. Also the scheduled wakeup call for our flight didn't happen - luckily we awoke in time for our flight.
All in all, a good option that deserves its good Trip Advisor score.
