“Great value, convenient dowtown location!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Impressions gained from Tripadvisor before I stayed ...modern, clean, convenient hotel, don't expect too much, but nice!
What I learned by staying there three nights...Very friendly, helpful front desk, very good English spoken by several staff..good, but not great tourist info. VERY convenient to downtown shopping, many tourist sites. Many great city busses stop right in front of the hotel, but coins/ change is needed and VERY difficult to obtain. Great pastry shop and small food shops in abundance. Hotel elevator small but fast. Very nice room/bed, modern, clean, with view, but not great view. Internet/computer use charge ridiculously expensive! Much cheaper to reserve on-line with a hotel booking service, and pay in advance. I got a great deal..very reasonable rates and overall, better than expected! No problems/many advantages!

Room Tip: Upper floor was nice, with view!

The bar is very modern and service was excellent with that added personal touch.
Our room was modern, spacious and with good facilities. It was also quiet.
The breakfast was always good, with lots of variety. The homemade bread was especially good.
I would stay here again if I return to Buenos Aires

The staff were very attentive from the moment we arrived. They were professional and tried to upmost to ensure that we had a pleasant stay.
The breakfast was nice with several interesting options. Great coffee, too. In the surrounding area there are chemists, cafés and shops. There are lots of business people who work in the area and we enjoyed walking along Corrientes street.
This a great hotel for this price range, and the great service is a plus!

Rochester has got to be a good choice for the centre of Bs As.
We booked this hotel because it was cheap and because it was central.
But we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation and service.
The breakfast in particular was excellent - a very wide choice of fruit, local meats and cheese, pastries, cakes. A breakfast chef will make omelettes and waffles (eg with dulce de leche) to order at no extra cost.
The Rochester rather confusingly markets itself as both Rochester Classic and Rochester M - with the latter, we think, supposed to be a bit better than the former. Just to add to the confusion, there is another part of the chain nearby called Rochester Concept.
Rochester M and Rochester Classic share a common vestibule - but have two reception desks with different brands. Services, including the breakfast, are shared.
Our large room - we booked Rochester M - had been stylishly renovated in recent years with a clean, minimalist look and a comfortable sofa and table as well as a big bed.
The room's bathroom fittings, however, were older but clean. The shower was a bit clunky.
By European standards this hotel was very good value for money - our room with the breakfast averaged at under £50.
The hotel was busy with a mixed international clientele that included plenty of European and South American holidaymakers. Staff appeared to speak good English.
This is a seriously good location - just a few yards from some of the main eating, shopping and theatre strips of Bs As and very close to transport connections.
But expect noise, bussle, excitement and petty annoyances typical of the centre of a major first world city.

Upon arrival, the staff at reception gave us a splendid welcome. They informed us about meal times gave us other useful information. We were greatly surprised to find that the room was spacious, light and spotless. It was a pleasure to be there! It was perfect and had a marvelous view of city. The breakfast is wonderful. Staying at Rochester M was a great choice.

There was a hiccup when I checked in in that they were saying that the breakfast and the wi-fi was not included. As I was doing research on the matter (two days later), they said they made a mistake and that it was free after all. Conclusion, read the fine print. If your travel provider says that these items are included take a printout with you.

Location is the best part of this hotel, the subway is literally across the street. The obelisk is 4 blocks away,

Price was good and the food in the morning was good.
