“Very old hotel”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

Rooms and public areas are very old. The beds are terrible. It is not a real 4 star and like a 3 stars. However location is perfect, it is in microcentro and easy access to many tourist attractions. Staff is very helpful and wifi is free and reachable in all areas of the hotel even in rooms

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

The hotel is excellently located in downtown Buenos Aries, a few metres from the main boulevard Avenida 9 de Julio. From here you can walk to all the tourist attractions in central Buenos Aries and also to the up-market re-developed Old Port area. You can also walk a short distance to the Obelisk and catch the Metro (Subte) to the out of town attractions (fare £0.50).
The hotel was clean and functional. Rooms were a reasonable size.The staff were friendly and helpful. The food for breakfast and in the restaurant was very average.

Tip.. take US dollars and change to Argentina Pesos at the location. (The official currency rate is 60% overvalued). I didn't do this and lost an arm and a leg converting my unused Pesos back to sterling in the UK.

We were there in November. The Jacaranda trees were in full bloom in all directions as far as the eye can see.

I stayed in this hotel for 1 full week at a fantastic rate. I was looking for a hotel less than $70/night in downtown Buenos Aires and I found the perfect deal at the El Conquistador Hotel. The hotel and the room itself is very clean and kept in great condition. They cleaned our rooms every day and provided us with clean towels everyday. The bed was extremely comfortable and it wasn't that noisy even though it was only a few blocks away from the well known 9 de Julio street. They offered excellent breakfast every morning and free wi-fi. We had some trouble with our wi-fi but they were able to reset the router so that it could work in our room. Also, the hotel room had all the general amenities such as a small fridge, locking safe, and closet. However, they lacked having an iron. But they do have laundry service which was a bit expensive. Luckily I brought enough clothes to last me my entire trip. The air conditioner didn't blow out cold air so we kept the window open to let fresh cool air in. However, the hotel has very accommodating staff so I am sure that if we brought it to their attention they would have done something about it. There is also a gym and a sauna. Also, the restaurant/bar area was really accomodating with great food and drinks. The location is perfect. It is walking distance to the Obelisk, Teatro Colon, Plaza San Martin, Retiro, Recoleta, Puerto Madera, Santa Fe Street and Galerias Pacificas. There are also lots of shops and restaurants all around it. There are lots of other forms of transportation very close if you don't want to take taxi and want to use the buses, subways or trains. I was very satisfied with this hotel and its location and excellent customer service. I will come again and stay here and recommend it to others that don't want to spend a lot on a hotel but get a clean comfortable place to stay.

First of all, this is not a 5 star hotel. So you have to temper your expectations. However, if you want value and convenience, this hotel is a good choice. It's affordable and in the heart of BA near shopping on La Florida and a short taxi ride to many sites and restaurants. Rooms were clean and hotel staff was courteous. Two negatives---WiFi in our room was hit and miss, and the walls in this hotel must be made of paper, because you can hear every little noise from guests in other rooms----that was the only real negative for us.

Comfortable hotel with facilities to be expected of a hotel at this price. I would say that the outstanding feature is it's staff whom I found to be extremely helpful and friendly in all departments. I will definitely seek out this hotel for future visits.

Room Tip: Comfortable, clean, basic rooms of an acceptable size.

Particularly helpful, knowledgeable staff made this stay better than average. As soon as we asked how to get somewhere or do something they would organize it for us beautifully together with useful suggestions. We would not have managed so easily without them given our lack of Spanish. The hotel is conveniently located and the rooms clean and well appointed. We will definitely return.

The hotel was a great price, great location. It was clean and the staff was friendly. Nothing spectacular but good value.

There were lots of restaurants within walking distance...we never ate at the hotel other than the complimentary breakfast which was quite nice.
