We stayed at the Ibis Buenos Aires for a week during our Sth American honeymoon in Nov08.
We found check in very quick and easy. We requested a room with a view and were delighted to be put in a room with direct views to the Plaza del Congresso.
The location of the Ibis is ideal for those who want to explore the city. There are bus stops right outside the hotel, a subway and taxis. We caught the bus quite often and walked everywhere else.
We noted though that there is a very severe shortage of coins which you will need for the bus. We asked the hotel for change but they suffered from this problem too! So my advice is if you get coins, save them for the bus!!!!!
The hotel room was very basic but nonetheless very clean and tidy. The business centre in the lobby was good too. There is a FREE safe service which is fantastic and the staff all spoke English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.
We had the breakfast one morning at the Ibis and didnt like it too much. There is definately better breakfast to have elsewhere.
I also wouldnt recommend the extra activities and tours run by the hotel. We were quoted next to 200 pesos for a soccer match and did it all ourselves for 20 pesos!! Also you need to pay for these in CASH and there was a mix up with my tango show where I paid a higher amount for a particular "better show" and was taken to a lower priced show instead. Who pocketed the rest of the money, I do not know. We copped it on the chin and vowed never to let it happen again, so beware.
Apart from this incident, we found the staff to be very helpful, the rooms to be clean and tidy and the location to be very central and the best to explore Buenos Aires!
