“Dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

We cannot recommend this hotel.
The only thing that is good about it is that its only a 10 min walk from Plaza San Martin. And the staff was friendly.
The hotel is dirty and really needs to be renewed - the rooms need new painting badly and redecoration of furniture too. The sheets were dirty too, the bathroom flooded when taking showers. The breakfast was average.
Not like the pictures at all!!
You can find way better value for this price!!

Stayed January 2014

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2009

I expecte a diferent hotel from what I saw. The whole hotel is reforming, dirt, sand, in everywhere. The rooms would have a nice decoration, but in fact, they are not in good shape. The pillows are a moutain to sleep on, hard and high, bad sheets and towels. The breakfeast is also very bad, and the staff not helpfull and unfriendly.
Well, if they are willing to renovate the hotel to let it in a good shape, they should close it, and re-open after the renovation, because no one who has been in the hotel by this time, would want to get back.
Go to another place, we stayed in King David Flat in the back to Cordoba, is a much better one, with almost the same price value.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2008

We stayed at Del Fundador Hotel twice during November 2008. I reserved a double room and paid AR $240 per night. This is a moderate price range for a hotel located downtown, about 10 minutes walking from all key sights and attractions.

This hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the Omnibus (bus) station, which is a real plus if you arrive by long distance bus. On the negative side, the hotel is located in a semi "seedy" area, but one only needs to walk a few blocks towards the main square and the neighborhood improves.

Despite the surroundings, we had no problem walking in the area at night. Once inside the hotel, the environment improves. The reception and dining areas are nicely designed, and computers are available for Internet access.

The hotel rooms are on the modest and small side. They seem fairly modern and upgraded, with nice wood floors and decent furniture. Each room has air conditioning, cable TV, a safe, and a large bathroom. Beds were decent and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean, had plentiful hot water, towels, and soap/shampoo. There is a large glass bowl type sink, either in the bathroom or in the main room. Our rooms appeared to be non-smoking and there were no tobacco odors.

The hotel staff were very friendly, young, and some spoke English. They help with taxis and other special requests. For example, we had an early bus to catch and they opened up the breakfast room early for us. In another instance, we requested a quiet room and they provided us with a room opening into an inner courtyard and not the street.

Breakfast was included with the price of the room and included cheese, ham, breads, fresh whole fruit, yoghurt, cereals, tea, and coffee. It was adequate and typical of an Argentina hotel or bed and breakfast.

Overall, this facility is a good value, is clean, and is located very centrally for tourism. It is well maintained and meets the needs of the "medium budget" traveler.

  • Liked — Price, location, and cleanliness
  • Disliked — Area is a little seedy at night
