Stayed one night in January 2014, for tourism purposes. I just needed a place to crash in Buenos Aires, to allow some slack in my schedule between flights to Ezeiza airport and from the Aeroparque. Hence I didn't require much. The room didn't cost much, and had a great location, so I ended up here.
The room was quite large for one person. A big TV, a small kitchen, a separate bedroom, and even a tiny balcony (holding the AC machine as well, so not very atmospheric, but they don't advertise the balcony at all so I got more than I bargained for; no complaints there). Since my flight left early in the next morning, I didn't check out the breakfast buffet.
The bed was fine, the AC worked wonders during a pretty hot Buenos Aires summer day, and the staff handled my request to call a cab efficiently. The internet in the room worked fine. Unfortunately, one of the most essential things I require from a room didn't work, and that is hot water in the shower in the morning. This is unacceptable. Hence: only three stars.
