“Look elsewhere”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

I can't even begin to describe how atrocious my stay was here at this hotel. When I first arrived, my bathroom was filthy. I asked the staff at the front desk if they can send housekeeping over to clean to which they acknowledged they would do so. When I returned to the hotel a few hours later from a city tour, no one had gone to my room to clean the bathroom. I had to ask three more times until finally someone came to clean it up. The elevator in the hotel is super slow, give yourself an extra 10 minutes when leaving the hotel, seriously. Another gripe was the charge for Wifi service, it was only free for 20 minutes if you went downstairs to the coffee shop and got a password. The only good thing I can say about this place is the car service to/from both airports. Otherwise, look to stay elsewhere when visiting BA.

The hotel is decent, the location is great and the staff is friendly. But if you are looking for something more from a hotel than sleeping, this is not the best option. I had a reservation in a twin room - which is tiny. The beds are very small, the AC is noisy. But the room was recently renovated so you will not find carpets or old furniture. The bathroom is great - spacious with a fine shower. Breakfast is OK, but crowded from 8.30 am. You spend a lot of time waiting for the elevators, which are small and slow. There is no room service and no fridge in the room. The hall was not very clean at all (but I complaint and they cleaned it). I would only come back if I could find no other option in the region.

Room Tip: As far as I could see, the Suites are much better and spacious than the regular rooms - but I am not...

The good things about this hotel are: is well located although this area is not nice, rooms are clean and breakfast is correct

The bas things:
The morning staff is horrible and prefer smoking and playing online games rather than help customers
The rooms are Big or small, it dépends on the receptionnist
Wifi is not free! They charge you everyday
Rooms are too noisy!!!! You can hear the bell of the elevators, the crazy houskeeping staff and other customers...

I guess quiet rooms are given to locals not europeans... Again the staff does not care... Sade to say for a hotel that prétends to high standard

The hotel was going thought renovations when we were there. No big deal. They respect the times for when they could make noise or not, and there was absolute no noise regarding the renovation.

The room looked fairly new, good size, wood floor, flat screen TV. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was big and the shower was just the best! Really good pressure, perfect after a day walking in Buenos Aires.

The breakfast was good even better because they included when I booked the hotel with them. Simple but tasty. The staff was very helpful. Giving us directions and tips about restaurants. The best thing about this hotel is by far the location! just a few steps away from the metro station, a Carrefour supermarket, and the nice stores at the Calle Florida all very close.

Also try to book the tango shows with the hotel. Much cheaper than if you do it with someone else on the street. Not sure why... but it was much cheaper booking at the hotel.

If you like steak here is a great tip for you: Go to La Estancia (Just amazing) about eight blocks from the hotel. marvelous steak at Applebees prices!!!!

The hotel is sufficient but nothing special. Good for one or two nights. Near to the center for visiting the city, and well connected to airports. Poor services, staff and breakfast. Rooms clean and comfortable but without any views. There were some torubles with the internet connection even if you have to pay for it.

Gran Hotel Argentino have an ideal location in the city centre, on the Avenida 9 de Julio, close to Obelisco. And this as well as its reasonable price were the main reason of our choice of this property. Hotel lobby and the room where we stayed weren`t large. However we didn`t have any discomfort. Our room was clean and I felt myself quite comfortable there.Great buffet breakfast has been served in the morning. Seems there were a lack of elevators for such number of people staying at the hotel. Once when I decided to use a staircase to desend instead of elevator it made an impression of a very long travel down deep well.
Reception staff was polite and friendly. They helped us to find a taxi when we were leaving to the airport.
We were deeply satisfied by our stay and would recommend this hotel as a good, reasonably priced midrange accommodation in central Buenos Aires.
