I booked my room online well in advance and thus obtained a very good price -- not cheap, but reasonable for a city hotel. The cost of the same type of room was WAY higher if booked right there. I selected this hotel because Holland America is based there in Buenos Aires. I thought it might make my eventual embarkation easier (it didn’t).
My room was very attractive, modern, extremely comfortable, and quiet - - everything I might want after a long flight! It was well equipped for travelers with lot of technology to charge. The immediate surroundings of the hotel are pretty shabby (the pharmacy/grocery store across the street had an armed guard!), but there are great restaurants only a few blocks away in several directions and the very nice pedestrian mall, Florida St and beautiful shopping center (you must see the gorgeous ceiling in the center) are only two blocks away. I didn’t eat in any of the restaurants so can’t comment about them. It's not really located near any of the major tourist spots in Buenos Aires.More
