Callao Suites
Reviewed 1 March 2014

The Callao Suites are a good choice if you want a simple and clean small apartment. Practical. You don't want to spend too much time inside the room, simply because it is not very beautiful or luxurious…

we stayed at Callao suites for 4 nights. The door man doesn't speak English. The representative of the agency was helpful and property manager was nice.WiFi worked well.
the couch was dirty and shower was not very clean.
The location is very convenient and close to both Ricoletta, center and Palermo

First of all this is not a hotel - it's an apart hotel, in other words, there's no room service, no breakfast and apparently the staff does not speak English. On the other hand, the room are large and very clean - visit their website and check it up, http://www.callaosuites.com/. The neighbourhood is unbeatable - lots of cafés, restaurants, pizzerias, banks, cafés notables, bookshops and tons of shops. Some hints:
El Ateneo Grand Splendid - according to the Guardian the second most beautiful bookstore in the world
For you breakfast - Babieca
Pizzas - El Cuartito
Shops - Isadora (accessories)
Supermarket - Carrefour (nice selection of wines)
Café notable - Clasica y Moderna

Well. I've been there twice, and I planning to go back in October.

This is actually an apartment-hotel, and I have stayed here on numerous trips to BA. The rooms are larger than those in an average hotel have a kitchenette with a mini-fridge, microwave, full sink and dishes. No room service or other typical on-site hotel amenities like a bell-boy. However, it does have daily maid service, and the bathroom with a full tub and shower is also a nice size. Rooms facing the street have roll down shutters over the balcony door which reduce the street noise and light. The location cannot be beat, as shopping, numerous restaurants and even a full supermarket are all very close by. The Metro station is a somewhat longer 3-4 blocks away. Televisions need an upgrade, but they have full cable service, and high speed internet is free. The staff does NOT speak English, but have always been helpful. A pass to a local gym can be obtained from the Security Desk.

I stayed at the Callao Suites for three days in my visit to Buenos Aires last month. It is a well arranged efficiency apartment, with basic amenities, clean, and comfortable. The cleaning service and the security at the entrance are excellent and friendly. The location is superb, since it is at few meters from the busy corner of Avenida Callao and Santa Fe. With subways, public transportation and plenty of stores. The price ($70 a night) is very good too. Note that this is not a hotel. No room service, butlers, swimming pool, fitness center or restaurant. But this is something I did not mind, since there are plenty of bakeries, restaurants and cafes nearby. Buenos Aires is a walk friendly city, and this location is optimal as a start and end point. If you wish to walk to Recoleta, along Ave. Sta. Fe to the port area and Puerto Madero, or to Avenida Corrientes with thee theater ares. So, if you are looking for an affordable, clean, safe, and centric place, you should consider this place. If you are used to be pampered in your room, with 100 amenities, it may not be your cup of tea. I highly recommend it.

Well, I can't really evaluate this hotel fully since they screwed up our reservation (it was paid for in advance). They misplaced our name so the reservation was under a generic "university" name (they booked and paid for the hotel. So, of course they could not locate my lab and hence provided no room. They informed me that they were full and simply handed me back my passport. This poor service for visitors from another country, is not good business practice. They made zero effort in helping me find another hotel. They displayed zero sympathy for me because I was stranded without a hotel in the evening. When the university complained about their poor service, they were not responsive. I don't know if this was representative, but I would never consider staying here again.
