Reviewed 25 January 2007

An old fahion hotel with old fashion decor and plumbing, spa bath very small . Our front room was very noisy, day and night. Take ear defenders but that won't stop the rumble of the underground. Staff very good, willing and helpful, most speak good English and Italian. Breakfast good.
Hotel has free internet access for the first 15mins. after that there is a small fee. Liked the location right by the Obelisk and great shopping. Unfortunately no swimming pool, however there is a small gym nearby where guest have free access. I'd stay there again but would insist on a room at the rear of the hotel. This was my first visit to Argentina and would go again.

Please, this hotel is at best the same level as a good Holiday Inn! The hotel needed a major renovation and has a somewhat decent location if you dont mind street beggers and the noise of an underground subway. My television did not work and the service bar was broken for two days. We extended our stay in Buenos Aires but we moved to a nice hotel for just a few more dollars per night. We finally experienced the beauty of the city once we left this hotel. This place makes the Bates Hotel look appealing!

I booked this hotel via Hotels. I have stayed at other Kempinski hotels in Europe and have found them to be luxury hotels. This hotel HARDLY qualifies in this category. The furnishings are old and look put together, the rooms need repair, beds are like sleeping on a box spring. Their bathroom look pieced together. The breakfast is a joke compared to other hotels in Buenos Aires. The only good thing I can say about the hotel is the staff tries to make your stay enjoyable, but it is difficult with what they have to work with.
Do yourself a favor and book one of the other fine hotels in Buenos Aires, but dont expect to get a Kempinski while there. I walked into another of the Kempinski Hotels while in Buenos Aires and it was worse, the Kempinski Elegence. I do not know how the Kempinski name is on these hotels, but I will never stay at one of these hotels again.

Hotel is located right in the centre of Buenos Aires near the Obelisk. I found staff to te be freindly and helpful - rooms are adequate - dont expect any great views.- they offer a good breakfast buffet in the morning - can recommend.

This was my first trip to Argentina and this little hotel beat all my expectations. It was very clean, the staff very friendly, and its location was perfect. It fronts onto a pedestrian-only street and it steps away from the Obelisk, the subway (Lines A, B and C) and the shopping streets of Avenida Florida and Avenida Lavalle. At night it is quiet, there is 24-hour front desk service and the restaurant served a great breakfast. I would stay here again without question.

The drawback is that is it a small hotel and doesn't have all the amenities and features that large hotels possess. If you want multiple restaurants, room service, spa treatments, etc. then this is not the place to stay.

Right from the word go we liked this hotel. The Kempinski has character: the decor's a bit over the top in the foyer and the staff have great personalities as well as great English. Our room wasn't one of the best they have to offer I gather, but it was clean and elegant, with aircon, lovely sheets / towels and, in the bath/shower, excellent water pressure (ok the bathroom wasn't modern but it was well-equipped). If we could have got up earlier we might well have lingered the full 3 hours over the hot and cold buffet breakfast & great coffee. And if you are one of those people who must have air in your coffee, they will make you a capuccino specially. Our only caveat is: take some earplugs in case you want to nap during the day and your room is at the front. (Suggestion: when booking, ask for a room that isn't at the front?) Again, the mini-bar is well-stocked but this is one of those rare occasions when you will need your travel kettle with you, if you like to make hot drinks in your room. In fact we didn't miss this - it's so easy (and more fun) to pop round the corner for a late night tea / coffee (and cake) or just order room service. Eating out is cheap compared with Europe and even compared with NZ & Australia and the USA. We spent a happy, comfortable week in this hotel which made the whole experience in Argentina memorable for the right reasons.

If your looking for a place that is centrally located and comfortable, this is a good choice. I spend a week in Buenos Aires with my husband and kids. We had two connecting rooms, decent and clean. The staff was very helpful in complying with our needs. Breakfast was good. Really enjoyed stepping outdoors and not having the busy street traffic. Part of the street is closed off. Three cafes across from hotel, one with nightly music. Enjoyable after a long day of sight seeing. Saw a concert at Teatro Colon, a block away. Beautiful theatre, must see. The alley, a miniature city walk, is a couple of blocks away. There you'll find stores(good shopping), restaurants, cafes. Government buildings around the corner. Plenty of local attorneys walking the streets. This hotel served its purpose, safe,clean, and centrally located. Not a Four Seasons. But In a city as big as Buenos Aires, staying at a hotel close to some of the cities highlights was a plus.

A happy traveler from Southern California
