Reviewed 7 November 2013

Right in the heart of microcentro: 1/2 block form the pedestrian (if not tourisy) Lavalle street with lots of restaurants, shops and movie theaters. Across the street is a launderers and next door are little tienda convenience stores and fruit markets. Really everything you need is within a couple of blocks...which is the distance to the other pedestrian shopping street of Florida, Corrientes and not that fat from 9 de Julio. Great central location

We had a room with a full living room and desk. Wonderful amount of space, which we really enjoyed. Very clean and comfortable with its modern furnishings. We were right next to both elevators, but wasnt too bad on the noise. Had a lot of closet and storage space as well as a mini fridge.

They do cleaning every day and wish they didnt change the towels and throw out the soaps every day, to be more Eco-conscious.

A small gym which sadly I looked at but never got around to using a

Didnt like that they charge for wifi at 50 ARS and uniue passwords for each 24 hours for each device you wanted to use, a pain and if you are a couple each with more than one device.

We paid on booking.com for a great deal even with the 21% service fee.

Rooms and locations were excellent. The less than stellar aspect was the very indifferent service, not unhelpful, just very indifferent, save Gaston, who was wonderful.

Overall an excellent choice!

The location of this hotel is brilliant.. Right in Microcentro you can walk everywhere. The quality of the rooms is pretty good although the bathrooms are glass walled which some people may not like! Overall we really enjoyed this hotel, the majority of the staff are professional, courteous and friendly; though unfortunately there were a couple of females working there who were very unprofessional and rude. This was a shame because their behaviour detracted from the professionalism of the rest of the staff. If you do get them on check-in at the front desk, just know their manners are not a fair representation of the rest of the hotel. The breakfast was completely fantastic, they even have an egg chef :) Just one tip: the room service is not made in the hotel, it comes from off site and when we ordered it, it arrived cold. Overall I would recommend to people travelling to Buenos Aires.

Loved my stay at the Rochester M. Next time I'm in BA I will definitely be staying there again. The rooms were immaculately clean. Beds were very comfortable. The air conditioner worked great. Never heard any noises from other guests or outside the hotel. The WiFi was not included in the rate, but wasn't very expensive.

I had some problems with the WiFi and they gave me a free code (good for 24 hours) to make up for it. Breakfast was not included in my rate either, but there is an awesome bakery just a couple doors up the street that had amazing pastries so that's what we did for breakfast each day.

It was so nice to be able to walk out the door and have a subway station right across the street, or Lavalle street just around the corner. The location could not have been better.

The location cannot be any better, around the pedestrian streets of Florida and LaValle and the Plaza de Mayo area.
Executive Suites- Spacious Comfort- spacious closet and lounge area.
The staff was very helpful, helped us with advice and bookings for various tours.
All in all it was a good experience!!!!

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
