Stayed 5 nights at the end of December/2010 and begining of January/2011.
Rooms: Stayed with my parents. Big and comfortable room with 2 queen size (?) beds. Air conditioning pretty good and good shower also. Matress a little too soft for my taste.
Breakfast: Very good selection and good quality. Maybe the best thing about the hotel.
Location: Really poor... It is located in a section of Avenida Corrientes, next to a very popular shopping mall. This section of street is very dirty and not very well frequented. Did not feel very safe at night. This section of this city is really not cared. There is a lot of better locations in Buenos Aires. The hotel is 100m from the subway system, which I thought very dirty and useless for sightseeing.
Service: Horrible. Very rude staff (with a couple of exceptions) and not attentive at all. They just do not try to help at all. I can explain lots of unnaceptable behaviors but I prefer not to lost my time.
Summarizing: the hotel itself is good, but very poor location and service. I do not recommend. Not a 5-star hotel at all!!
