We arrived early in the morning and Terra Bella let us into our room early, which was good of them. We went to sleep as we had been on an uncomfortable over night bus.
Once awake we realised that the floor was filthy and the bottom of our feet had gone from white to black. Apart from that, the room was spot on and the location was ok as well, only being a five minute taxi ride from the city.
It was on our last morning here that we had real problems. They did let us stay in the room until the afternoon, which again was very nice of them and they didn't have to do it. When we booked the room via email, we were told that the room for two nights would cost $80, so somewhere in the region of 440.00 Argentinian pesos, or so we thought! As you are unable to obtain US dollars in Argentina, apart from the black market, we can only pay in pesos. And with the black market rate of dollars being 7 pesos to $1 instead of 5 pesos to the $, the price has gone from $80 to $125 - which is a big difference when on a budget.
If we had known about this before booking the room or they had told us, we wouldn't have stated here. All in all, a good room but a nasty surprise waiting for us at the end of our stay!
