“ANOTHER IBIS, like BEEN in the same hotel in every COUNTRY but GT VALUE FOR SURE”
Reviewed 27 March 2007

Hi from Lima, PERU :),

I have traveled a lot, almost all Europe and Many great cities in South America, so i was hoping to find the same i found in Europe in Buenos Aires, I can tell you this Ibis continues the traditon, what means, a well organized, simple but well done service, not a great breakfast but for the price very good, not all the persons under your disposition but if you ask they will help courteously, not great big rooms with flowers and frigider but well organized, nice view and modern clean baths.

Is a Ibis, a bussiness type hotel, part of the French Group Accord, (The owners of many great brands, like novotel and sofitel) whith the advantage of leaving anyone, family, backpacker or corporate with the security of finding a good service.

But which is the best advantage of this hotel, the relation price service and location.

You can pay the double or triple and the possibility of find yourself in a deception could be significant, until now for me that's had not been the case.

And there's more ...

Around Buenos Aires Center for the price payed (around 65 US$ per night, per double room or king size with the plus of the breakfast for 3 dollars, march 2007) this hotel simply can't be beaten, the cheapest Ibis i have ever been.

Take my advice, stop searching all around the on line agencies around there, for the date of this review IBIS is the best, and what is most, you won't find this hotel in the on line hotel service because they have they own online check in system.

Remember to ckeck in in advance at least 15 days before, because of the price and the service this hotel is always in the move, like full.

How to Arrive:

two ways : by taxi (70 reales or 35 follars, as march 2007 like 30 minutes)
by bus (1,35 reales or 0.7 dollars ;) the glorious 86 line, like 1:46 hours ).

I went by bus, i must said i was with a group not alone, is a south american bus so you can wait to find all type of persons, and to see some nice and some ugly things, but if you are like us, without any hurry, with the reservations, and in the adventure mood and wishing to know the city from all the sides then take the bus (and off course it will cost you 1/50 times less hehehe, )

and also ... The bus stops in the door of the hotel :)

From the Hotel:

Almost all the attractions are at walking distance 5 to 10 minutes, considering that the hotel is at one side of the congres (yeah baby, one tourist place already visited just arriving to the hotel), walk a little and you are in the pink house (casa rosada), the Plaza de Mayo, Puerto Madero, The Women Bridge, The Obeliso and The Opera between others.

Suggestions:

- Don't change your money just arriving from the plane, in the airport just 10 steps from the first money change office is the National Bank office, you can save a lot if you change there your money.

- Take the 86 line if you are in a group and not in a hurry, and change your billets to coins, the bus accepts just coins :).

- Eat the local food, beef and also the great fish Merlusa, you will find great restaurants in the Corrientes Street and more expensive but not better (just the view may be) in Puerto Madero area.,

- The center is safe, with a extensive area for shopping in the Florida Street and Corrientes, but don't forget about other Big Malls like UNICENTER, 45 minutes by bus, the same price, take the glorious 60 line.

- Don't even think about beaches or lakes, this city is hot in the summer but you will find just swimming pools, hehe, (persons getting the tan in the parks, kinda bizarre for me as i come from a surffing country ;)

well i think that's all, take care, peace and ... happiness.

Sergio Claver from Lima, and the great country of PERU :)

PS: Take a look at my pictures, feedback as always is appreciated.

I recently stayed at the IBIS Buenos Aires with my fiancée for 5 nights as part of a 3 week whistle-stop tour of Argentina and Brazil.

I undertook a significant amount of research on hotels in Buenos Aires before arriving and found that many of the hotels in the mid-price range looked very old fashioned (i.e. built in the 1970s) and that it was difficult to predict what a lot of the hotels would be like.

Accordingly, I chose the IBIS because you know exactly what you are going to get pretty much worldwide – a very good value, very clean if relatively small standard double room with a business hotel ambience. This is exactly what we experienced in Buenos Aires and it was perfect for what we wanted – particularly as the money we didn’t spend on accommodation paid for our shopping crusades through Buenos Aires! There isn’t really a “central” tourist area in Buenos Aires, so it was fine to stay here. It is so cheap to take taxis and public transport (or even walking like we did quite a lot of the time) that you can get from one end of the city to another fairly quickly anyway.

My only qualm was that the hotel reception area (the staff at reception does speak a bit of English) was a bit soulless but this is to be expected in a business hotel.

We had a very pleasant stay and I would recommend the IBIS to anyone looking to stay in BA on a budget.

I am a budget tourist and the Ibis hotel chain part of Accor Hotels has prioven itself again. I tried the Ibis in Lisbon Portugal and found it clean and budget oriented so with your reccomondation I booked this hotel in Buenos Aires. The price 108 pesos app. $36.00 USD per nite had me a little concerned.The Congresso area, where the hotel is located is not a particularly tourist area. The neighborhood has great older buildings including the Congress for the country. The area is predominately inhabited by students and working class people. The resturants are less expensive and the area is not geared for those travelers who expect tourist/upscale resturants. I booked directly and e mailed them to inform the that I would like an early check in and when I walked into the hotel at 10am Sunday a clean room was ready. The air conditioning was great although you did not need to use it all nite. You could eat off the floors as it was so clean. The buffet in the hotel was convienent when you had a tour, meeting you early at the hotel. There are really better options in the area for all meals.

This hotel is very close to the main atractions and it is very cheap.
The rooms are clean and modern, although a little bit small (as every IBIS).
The staff is very polite and gave to us all the informations we needed.
The check out is a little bit lazy, so if you need to go to the airport take some extra time to make your check out.
Backing to Buenos Aires I will stay there again.

Reviewed 10 December 2004

Clean room and comfortable beds (if you like firm matresses, which seem to be in short supply in AR). Sort of like a Motel 6 in an urban setting, but with better soundproofing, a restaurant/cafe, a noon checkout time, and a staff that spoke fluent English. Windows open to let in fresh air, but street noise made it prudent to use A/C.

We paid $27US a night, which was much less than any hotel in the area and the property beat the pants off of another 2-star we stayed at in BA (Hotel Hispano) that was close in price.

Only complaints are the time consuming checkout process (not like the US where they auto charge your CC) and breakfast isn't included in the nightly rate. Also, for biz folks, the lack of Internet access in rooms is pretty limiting. Not a ton of character - actually almost none - but if you need a place to stay in BA for a night or two, it's a good value and walking distance to top attractions and shopping.
