The hotel describes itself as modern and low cost and I would not argue with that.
We arrived Buenos Aires after a 13h30m flight from London eager to get to the hotel room.
We used the official airport taxi which you pay for at a desk in the arrival hall , 300 pesos or they accept USD 38.00. This was an modern unmarked car which we were escorted to and were underway almost immediately.The normal black and yellow taxis ,I think are a bit cheaper ,about 180 pesos plus tolls of which there are 2 pr 3 enroute to the city , and we have heard of some scams.Also these taxis are tint not really designed for luggage ( we were ultimately heading for a cruise ship , so don't expel more than 2 passengers unless you've only hand luggage.
The flight touched. Down at 0830 and we were at the hotel by 1000.
The reception desk is small and only 1 staff on duty so we had to wait for a couple of minutes but the guy was very pleasant and spoke excellent English .Most importantly we we're give a room immediately at 1000 even though official checkin was 1500 ,maybe lucky as it was a Monday and I don't think the hotel was full.
The hotel is modern and very economical , it is finished to a high spec , mini fridge stocked only with water ,large flat screen Tv.It was a twin room and the beds are European style twin I.e. 3 ft beds but very comfortable and good quality bedding.
There is no wardrobe as such , just a partitioned are in one corner of the room which has a rail with 4 hangers and 4 or 5 small shelves , this area also contains a large room safe and there is room under the shelves for a couple of suit cases .We were staying a couple of days pre cruise so didn't really unpack , if you were saying a week or more and wanted to unpack your case you might be . The bathroom has quality sanitary ware including bidet , and a large walk in shower but no bath.Shower was powerful and always had hot water . The towels were large ,new and fluffy. In terms of toiletries there was only a tiny bar of soap and shampoo from a dispenser on the wall .No lotions or shower gels though only thing I missed was tissues. Also there is no waste bin in the bedroom and the waste bin in the bathroom is tiny.
Continental Breakfast was included ,again quality was fine but very basic...tea,coffee,water,orange juice, apple juice,white or brown bread for toasting ,cooked ham was only cold meat and sliced cheddar type cheese .A selection of Danish pastries also. Frosties ,Fruit Loops or Bran cereal.
No eggs or. Yoghurt It was fine for me.
Location is good , right next to the Intercontinental hotel .A few hundred yards from Av. 9 de Julio
With plenty of bars and Cafés ,10mins in the opposite direction to large square with the Pink Palace ( featured in Evita ) , the National Bank and Cathedral , and nearby starting point for hop on/ off bus. The bus tour is worth doing but make sure they don't sell you the Tourist card for shopping discounts , it's 50pesos and ,at least for me pretty useless , a lot of the places it can be used are not even in Buenos Aires.
The free Wiifi was very good ,and if you haven't got your own iPad or laptop there half a dozen desktops in reception.
This hotel met my needs totally .It was modern ,clean ,adequate breakfast.,goof WiFi and good location ,about 10 minutes from Cruise terminal by taxi.
I would have liked tissues as I had a bit of a cold and the Tv had no English speaking channels ,apart from that excellent value for money.
