Bristol Hotel Buenos Aires
Ranked #107 of 440 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Hard to find a better location in Central Buenos Aries. Very good value, and extremely helpful staff. Arrived on a Sunday evening, and was assisted with nearby restaurant, currency exchange (much of the city closed) and early taxi.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled solo

These older hotels do have the tendency to be out dated and run down. In all honesty this hotel does have some renovation to be done, but it makes up for the service, atention of the staff and atmosphere of the place. The staff is humble, well trained and just outstanding. We departed the hotel room on a tuesday and my girlfriend left in the room a small bag with valuable things in the bag. They sent the bag to Puerto Rico untouched! Very honest group of staff, highly recomend this hotel besides the location the breakast and staff make it worthwhile. Once is never enough!!

The Bristol Hotel is located a few steps from The Obelisk and the historical center of town. It is within walking distance to some of Puerto Madero, the restaraunt area,located along the water. We were also able to walk to Pacifico Mall and the Rocleta Cemetary in 20-30 minutes. Several Tango shows were nearby. The hotel is older but well kept. The room small but sufficient with fridge, safe, tv. Breakfast the normal Argentinean standards, mostly sweets and breads, ham and cheese slices. The staff was very helpful. Only con: one load of laundry cost 109 US dollars!

It is an old refurbished hotel located in the hart of the city, all theaters nearby at walking distance one block away from the famous Corrientes Avenue and the Obelisk.
I recommend it and always use it when traveling to BA

Room Tip: Away from the elevators

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for five few days in May 2013. It is well located within walking distance to shopping precinct and many tourist facilities in Buenos Aires. We walked everywhere. Our room was clean and comfortable and we considered it good value. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the service in the restaurant so much on our first evening in the hotel that we chose to eat there every night. Buenos Aires is a large bustling city and may seem noisy to some. Like many big cities, the city noise can be heard in the hotel rooms but we did not find it so loud or annoying that it distracted us from sleeping. May not be 5 star but recommended.

I stayed here a few days ago continuing my tour of Argentina and Buenos Aires. I stayed in Buenos Aires for 6 days which, in my opinion is too long. It is a very big city and the downtown area has about 3M people. Greater Buenos Aires is almost 13M. There is only so much you can do here though.

Hotel Bristol is regarded as a four star hotel. However, given its location on one of the widest streets in the world and the noise carrying through the hotel I would give this place 3.5 stars. The road this hotel is located on is Avenue 9 de Julio. It is 140 meters across and has a ton of traffic on it day and night.

Having noticed this as I checked in I requested a quiet room. I was given a room on the 7th floor not facing the main road. It was clean and well laid out. I believe there are 9 floors here. When I closed my bedroom door I could not really hear the traffic on the other side. However, I could easily hear people talking between the walls and floors. Most hotels in Argentina whether 2 or 4 star have very poor soundproofing; often the rooms are adjoining and you can hear everything! There are connecting doors, but not in Hotel Bristol.

The sockets in this hotel and Argentina in general, have the same kind as Australia and are 220V. This hotel and all the others I stayed in Argentina do not have radio/alarm clocks. You have to rely on getting a wakeup call (if there is a phone in the first place in your room!) or taking your cell phone with you. There was a phone in my room in Hotel Bristol and one night I asked for a wakeup call. I never got it the next morning though. I believe this is often the language barrier. Other places are just incompetent.

Checkout is 10am here. On my last day in Buenos Aires I was flying out at 6pm. I wanted to stay in the hotel until 3pm. This was easily requested with the front desk, though for a fee of $USD 60 or $Pesos 300. I found the staff in general polite and well mannered.

Room Tip: Remember to stay on the side of the hotel not facing traffic. In addition stay away from elevators a...

in general, this is an old budget type hotel. facility is well kept but not updated.

the good:
- location is a block away from the oblisk on the july 9th avenue, the very center of the city.
- many eateries near the hotel from mcd's and b'king's to local restaurants, pizzarias, bars, etc.
- metro (subte) station is nearby if you plan to use it
- hotel staff are friendly
- walking distance to main tourist sites from 1km to 5km, taxi cab is also cheap, 5km will run you 50 pesos
- we booked three stays at non-refundable rates, quite a bit less than the normal rate. if you need flexibility you might want to reconsider.

the bad:
- surrounding areas are where thieves gather. however, if you don't have your expensive wares shown on the outside you'll be all right. and this isn't the hotel's fault.
- hotel charges more for airport transfer than if you book your own, i.e. with eze taxi. to eze it's 250p vs 180p. guess hotel has to take a cut.
- the view rooms facing the july 9th avenue are very noisy 24/7. but it does have views of the oblisk. if you are a light sleeper, ask for rooms not facing the street.
