“Great location”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Great location, right on city center and close to metro stations and touristic attractions. The bathroom was very small but the room itself was not so bad, just a little bit old. The breakfast could be better.

If you are looking for location, you probably cannot beat this hotel. It is two or three blocks from the Casa Rosada, a block from the Bolivar Subte Station, an easy walk to San Telmo.

The rooms are adequate, as is the breakfast. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Some rooms are better than others, we came back and were put in a better room for the same price. This hotel is a good deal.

This hotel is run by the UNION DE TRABAJADORES DEL TURISMO, HOTELEROS Y GASTRONOMICOS DE LA REPUBLICA ARGENTINA (UTHGRA) or the Labor Union of the country's hotel industry. It should be a Flagship of their "savoir faire", a source of pride and excellence. But It is run like a small family business in an outdated building. Comfort of rooms is very basic (small rooms, small TV sets) and quality of breakfast is absolutely abysmal (very bad fruit juices, awful ham and cheese). As far as the staff it greatly varies depending on whom is helping you (from helpful to careless) In spite of its good location I wouldn't recommend this place. Lots of things need to change. It's never too late!

Great location (behind Mansana de las Luces, near Plaza de Mayo), low price and a nice breakfast! You will get a lot more than you pay for in this simple but functional hotel. Near "calle" Florida, Plaza de Mayo and Café Tortoni.
Definitely a great place to stay in Buenos Aires. Don't let the ugly neighborhood frightens you. It is just a commercial square with a good hotel.
Its location will help turn even the already inexpensive cabs even cheaper!

I stayed here for 4 nights recently. Simple hotel with good locationopposite a nice church. Breakfast pretty standard for argentina. Would stay here again on price alone.

Room Tip: Get a room at the front with a view of the church

This is not a bad hotel, it is simply extremely basic. The rooms and bathrooms are tiny.
Everything is clean and the front desk personnel are very friendly.
For me, the biggest problem was the church in front of the street, which start to ring the bells at 7 am every 15 minutes.... so if you want to have a placid morning and sleep late, consider this.

Room Tip: Check several rooms before you make up your mind.
