“Very good position!”
Reviewed 4 September 2008

This four stars hotel is located in a fantastic position close to avenida 9 de julio, so that is really worth if you want to stay in a central position of the Capital.
The rooms are a little small compared to the american standard but not so small compared to London's.
It's really clean, well furnished with a good international breakfast.
You ca also try to ask for best rates directly to the reception, all the staff is very professional.
I recommend it!.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 23 days. The location is nearby an underground station and at walking distance from the Obelisk and the Florida shopping street, it offered free guarded underground parking for our rent-a-car. The staff at reception speaks English. All staff are well educated, friendly and polite. Security is strict and gave us a safe feeling in this bustling city. Breakfast is a real treat, soup! every morning, fresh fruit juces and a all sorts of fruits are served. The lunch and dinner at the restaurant are superb. The rooms are small, but comfortable, noise from the 9 julio avenida is well surpressed with double glazing and blinding curtains. Still some traffic noise filters through the windows on the front side. Maintenance is alerted by room maides as soon as repair of curtain rails or light bulbs is needed ( a well known irritator in many hotels) Carpets were shampoo cleaned at least once a week. The owner and the manager of the hotel did everything to make anyone feel a VIP guest. Champagne was served on my birthday. We were surprised to find easter cakes and chocolate easter eggs in our room on the 22nd of March.

My husband and I began our Argentine honeymoon adventure at the Grand Boulevard. I had stayed at this hotel the previous year and had a pleasant experience and figured it would be a good way to start our honeymoon. I am glad we did! The hotel is centrally located for exploring San Telmo and Plaza de Mayo. The staff had not turned over much from my previous visit. They were just as pleasant and helpful as last year. The decor in the lobby is dated but I don't really care about that in a hotel. I am mainly concerned with cleanliness. This hotel is very clean and very comfortable. The breakfast buffet is large for a BsAs hotel. We really had a lot of options in the morning.

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone visiting BsAs who wants a clean comfortable hotel at a GREAT price.

This is a hotel in a great location, right on the Avenue de Julio. The lobby is a bit dated but the bedrooms are lovely, comfortable and clean. The food in the restaurant, including the buffet breakfast, is very good. It is a good base for seeing the sights.

We chose this hotel on the basis of (most) Trip Advisor recommendations – although we almost did not stay there because expedia uk did not make our reservation! It was only fortunate we were visiting in the low season when most Portenos or other visitors leave the city, and they had rooms available.
The hotel is centrally located near the obelisk on Avenida 9 Julio and Belgrano. and has recently been refurbished. (While we stayed there they were remodeling the bar/dining room.) The AC is excellent; there is wifi in the rooms, which is fast; and the hotel offers good value. Yes, some of the rooms may be small but if you pay more you can get a bigger room ie. You get what you pay for.
The staff is excellent, obliging from front desk check to restaurant staff. The front desk staff double as concierge, speak English as well as other languages. This was our second visit to BA after visiting Mendoza and Iguazu a week earlier). The front desk staff provide us with detailed information on the buquebus schedule to Uruguay, called for taxis, which were invariably superior to those hailed on the street, and confirmed our flights back to the UK via Sao Paulo.

Hotel prices (equivalent to $127 + 21% tax) per night include an excellent buffet breakfast – which was actually better than that available at the Hilton, where we stayed for the first part of our visit to Bs As (see our review at Trip Advisor). There was homemade wholemeal bread available, wonderful scrambled egg mixed with cheese and pancetta, as well as lean bacon (not the streaky fatty stuffy available at US hotels eg the Hilton) and meaty sausages.

We will certainly stay there again.

We spent the Christmas Holiday in Buenos Aires and stayed at the Grand Boulevard.

Our twin room was very comfortable and had everything that we wanted. Although our room faced Avenida 4 de julio, the street noise was not a problem.

After 2 nights we upgraded to a suite for a minimal fee and found the suites to be very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom shower/jacuzzi combo was a treat!!!

Each morning we had a complementary buffet breakfast which included many options. The 1st floor of the hotel has a full service restaurant/bar named "Petit Rue" that is open 24 hours/7 days a week. We met the nicest employee , Gabriel, who works the midnight-7a.m. shift.
Also in the same area are 4 computers with internet access, free to hotel guests.

About 1/2 block from the front of the hotel is the Moreno "Subte" ( Metro) stop.
The Subte is very easy to navigate and extremely inexpensive. The cabs are extremely reasonable as well.

All of the employees that we met were very professional and courteous. They went out of their way to accomodate us.

I booked this hotel with a friend after reading all the wonderful reviews on the internet. The hotel is on the small side but it really makes no difference except when it comes to the rooms. The rooms are tiny and the walls are a bit thin making it difficult to relax if you want to stay in the room a lot. The subté (Buenos Aires' underground rail system) actually runs under the hotel and can be heard on the lower floors. I only heard it though when I would use the business center on the first floor (one above the lobby).

The staff is incredibly friendly and amazingly helpful.
