“Strange but good”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

This hotel is wonderfully placed, close to the new port area, to a main shopping street and to the centre of town.
The staff on the front desk have really good English and are very kind, friendly and helpful. Our room, on the top...8th...floor is clean and looks out to the huge expanse of river, but despite the double glazing, it is quite noisy. It is functional rather than luxurious and I wonder why the hotel has 4 stars. Mind you, the bed is fabulous and the bedding is good too, but there was no shower gel in the room and there are no paper tissues....all things that push up the star rating.
The whole hotel feels odd to me; my husband said it feels Stalinist, but I just feel it's lacking warmth and atmosphere.
Breakfast is help yourself. It's good, in that you can eat loads, but the staff are not always on the ball replacing crockery and food that's run out.
If you just want somewhere good and functional to stay, then here is really excellent, but if you want luxury, I'm not sure this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor. Our room, 805 is fine.

Business or not it's a great hotel to stay.

Gym is good quality not like many others I have seen. Train every night.

Breakfast is decent, you need to get used to the various sweet and salty flavours.

Friendly and helpful staff.
Great wifi connection and for free.

Standard four star business hotel with good location, attentive English speaking staff, small but rather nice and clean rooms, poor contintal breakfast.
Mi wife and I Stayed there for 4 nights in October 2013.
The prices are really nice, so I would recommend it for short business trips or vacations.
The view on the calle Reconquista is rather disappointing so ask rooms with the view on avenida Cordoba.

This is a really lovely hotel right in the center of Buenos Aires. Very helpful staff, spotless rooms with lovely comfy beds, not a bit noisy. Gorgeous buffet breakfast served until 10.30. Mini bar, excellent free WiFi in room & free safe.You just walk outside & you are right beside restaurant's, bars & shops. The perfect place to stay.

Good location on walking distance of Puerto Madero do not walk after 22:00)
Historic style building with beautiful architecture but small rooms as a result.
Breakfast is ok, basil, good.
Very friendly staff.

Didn't realise this was a business hotel but the location was excellent for us tourists. Contrary to what several have said previously about the hotel, I would say that breakfast was good but they could have replaced the toaster with one that worked, refilled milk and juice more frequently and changed the cooked breakfast each day (scrambled eggs was the norm). They would though do fried eggs for you if you asked. Front desk staff tried hard but sometimes getting taxis was a tad difficult and the security staff who could have helped decided that looking bored and threatening was preferable. The rooms were small and tired and some nights were very noisy. We have windows shut because it was so cold over night but in summer a higher room would take you above the inevitable street noise I suspect. Try and stay round the side or back of the hotel as this might make for a quieter room though your just have to hope the other residents don't stay up all night! It did fine for us despite this and we would stay there again.
There is effectively no bar in the hotel but the Barobar round the back is a friendly place. Al Carbon (out the front door, turn left and left again down the lane 100 m) was a great place for steaks though I suspect in higher season, you may have to book.

Room Tip: High floor room round side or back

I stayed at the NH Lancaster in May for 2 nights and I will definitely stay there again next time I am in Buenos Aires. The service is excellent, location is great and the room is spotless. The breakfast and food at the Lancaster are top quality, you cannot leave without trying the tortilla Española (Spanish omelet).
The staff is very professional, helpful and accommodating. I stay at NH hotels in other locations in Europe and S America, and the Lancaster is one of my favorites.
