Hotel Carly
Ranked #414 of 442 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Reviewed 19 January 2013

Stayed there only a half night because we had a flight early in the morning. It was very noisy, dirty and without any charm. Basic stuff is missing, things are broken and not replaced and the host seemed grumpy. For the one night it was acceptable, because of the good location and i guess you dont find a cheaper place in Buenos Aires.

When we arrived at the hotel the manager/owner? was sitting outside on the stairs smoking. He looked like he hardly wanted to get up to say hello to his new guests.
He practically threw a key to us and took us to the room. In the room there where cockroaches all over the place.
No towels available and on the bedlinnen there was a big yellow stain who looked like it belonged to the previous guest.

Buenos Aires and other locations in the world have proven us, cheap ho(s)tels can be welcoming and clean but this one was definately not. It a shame these kind of places still exist.

Location is very good but not worth staying in this hotel.

First time ever I have had negative impression of a hotel, cheap or expensive. Very cold and hot water scarce. No airport shuttle as advertised and staff were hard too find. However when found they were obliging. Very little English spoken but that is okay. Not as cheap as expected. Very interesting, if shabby, building. Good position and internet efficient. Sorry I cannot recommend.

Great place if you welcome interaction with the manager´s screaming 8 year old kids who throw things at the guests. Luckily they quieten down at midnight, at which point the bar over the road takes over, blaring Abba and Fine Young Cannibals at volumes dangerous to your sanity until 7 AM.

There is free internet, but you´ll have to jockey for position with the manager´s porn-viewing teenage son.

The "kitchen" barely deserves the name - bring your own pots and pans.

The showerheads are carefully positioned so that you actually have to stand in the toilet bowl to shower.

Otherwise, great location and cheap.

This is a family run hotel right in the heart of San Telmo. The family are lovely and can help you with just about everything. It is in Plaza Dorego so you really don't have to walk far to be in the heart of the action.
The hotel is actually in an old building and yes the decor and rooms are a bit outdated, but for the bargain price you are paying you couldn't ask for more. There is an internal courtyard which is great to relax in and two kitchens in which you can cook for yourself if you are on a budget. There is a small common room with a couple of computers, a television and some books.
There are loads of great bars and restaurants on your doorstep, and the san Telmo market is only a block or so away, great to buy a couple of medialunas in the morning. The bar/club across the road is often still going strong at 8 in the morning at weekends!!!
Couldn't reccomend this hotel more. If you are on a budget it is the perfect option.
