“Great hotel for so many reasons!!!”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Travelled to Buenos Aires in November and loved my experience.
Great location with plenty of good restaurants and extremely close to many cafes and shops.
Fabulous staff and, most of all, great on-site resources like wi-fi, a superb restaurant and bar.
Very nice rooms, delicious breakfast with a fresh fruits and juices.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

I recommend it for a short stay in Buenos Aires.

I prefer hotels with a clean design. And that´s the case here.

The hotel was convenient for me, clean and friendly staff.

Good breakfast.

Rooms are very small. It´s hard to walk sometimes. The bathroom too. It wasn´t a big problem for me but i'm just saying in case of people who need more space.

Spacious bedroom and complete bathroom, hair Dryer, kit of gratuitous bathroom, Minibar
The hotel also counts with bar, restaurant and wifi.
The great good Place "Cafe Tortoni", it is a nice place for a coffee or a small snack, famous for its literary and art.
The location of this hotel is perfect, it's perfectly accesible by underground and bus :)

I travel frequently on business. The staff here was warm and professional, andthey were able to understand us very well. The room was spacious, including a king-size bed, mini-bar and plasma TV. They offer room service, as well as a complete breakfast with a variety of choices. The neighborhood is good, near many cultural and tourist attractions.

Flying in from the US and overnighting on the plane, I was pretty tired by the time I got to the hotel. I was tersely informed that there would be no checking in before 2:00. The decor in this hotel is very sparse - grey, stark, unadorned. Apparently, I was being offered a seat on a back-less bench in the lobby, right by the door that was constantly opening into the (winter) outdoors for 5 hours, until check in time. I was told I should have reserved a room for the night before I got there, had I wanted to check in before 2:00.

The neighborhood feels safe, but one of the two doors is glass which must be operated by the reception desk staff. It was not until my third day there that my presence at the door was acknowledged with a smile and greeting from the reception staff; the first two days they seemed to be trying to convey the impression it was a favor to me and an imposition to them to open the door for me.

The room was clean but small, and the bed comfortable. As previous reviewers have said, the elevators are very small and cramped.

It's in the microcentro, which is centrally located but not immediately close to much other than commerce-related things - it's about 1 km from Puerto Madero, though.

People used to using washcloths should bring their own; the hotel didn't have any - at least didn't provide any in response to a request. I was also told they had no irons available for guest use.

I was there in late winter. Notwithstanding that, the breakfast offered at the hotel was quite good and varied. Medialunas especially good.

Walking around the neighborhood, and visiting one other hotel, I think very cramped and unadorned is typical of this part of town. It is likely very practical for many, and competitive price wise, but my experience there was sort of a mixed bag.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. We got upgraded to a suite for no apparent reason and enjoyed a clean and comfortable room, great breakfast, and a convenient location. I would highly recommend!

Reviewed 15 June 2013 via mobile

I found this hotel here on trip advisor and it was a good choice. It is close to the subway (Lavalle station) and close to a lot of touristic places. The accommodations are reasonables and they offer a good breakfast (not included in the price). The building is very old, though. The check out time quite early (10am) and the elevators is only capable to carry three people per time. If you have too much luggage you will suffer.
Although, if you look for a hotel located close to public transport and close to the main touristic places and with a good price and reasonable comfort, you should pick this hotel.
By the way, the Internet in the hotel is not included and really expensive (39 pesos). I recommend to go to a Cafe and get free Internet. At least you drink a coffee as local people do and get cheaper Internet access. :-)
