We stayed at this hotel twice in Jan 2014- first for 1 night before heading down to Ushuaia for an Antarctic cruise, then for 3 nights after the cruise.
I've been to BA before but never to this part of town. Really liked the location - in Palermo Soho. There were lots of cafés and shops in the area, within walking distance. Spent a lot of time wandering around and window shopping. Friendly people around... We seemed pretty centrally located in BA (short taxi to the touristy spots) but felt safe where we were.
The staff were also quite friendly, helpful, and hip (like the hotel). They offered some good restaurant recommendations and helped research and organize a tour to el Tigre, a cooking class and a tango/cultural show. They spoke English.
The place is very modern and looks small from outside. The first room we had was quite small, with just enough room for all our luggage. The bathroom/shower was excellent. For our second stay we were given a larger room that we liked much more. So seems the rooms can be very different. Borg rooms were clean and white with cement and natural light. Unfortunately there was a heat wave while we were there the 2nd time, and even with a portable generator running outside, the ac kept going off... So it was hot. This wasn't the hotel's fault and they kindly tried to make up for it with some champaign and chocolates.
Th Breakfast selection was small but with some delicious items including some typical argentine breakfast foods. I try to eat gluten free and they tried their best to accommodate.
We appreciate that the hotel stored half of our luggage for the 3 weeks that we were on the cruise.
Would stay here again, and would recommend.
