In it's time this must have been a very grand hotel, as evidenced by some of the original fixtures and fittings that can still be found there; sadly that time was nearly 100 years ago, and the whole place is now very faded and tired.
The rooms are adequate , the wi-fi works in the lobby, and the location is good for the historic/government area and Puerto Madero- though personally I found this like Canary Wharf without the olde worlde charm - but the Subte A line which has a station right outside the hotel is currently closed for improvement.
The breakfast is fairly poor: the coffee is weak, the fruit mainly tinned and the bread/pastries stale. That said there are worse places to stay I'm sure and has a very good wine shp next door. It is now though a rather faded 3* rather than the grander establishment the names and shots online might suggest.
