“One of the worst in the hemisphere”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2008

Whenever you think of utterly awful hotels, consider the Frai Toluca as your standard of comparison. ¨Neglected¨would be an understatement. To begin with, the hotel is located in the middle of nowhere, far away from the center of town, at least a mile to the nearest restaurant. In the rooms? The carpeting was filthy and worn through the floor. I had to brush hair off the bedsheets. The towels were threadbare rags. The toilet seat was broken. The room safe had long been jimmied open and left dangling. Breakfast was unchanged from the previous reviewers. Two cold croissants, instant coffee and Tang breakfast drink. The magazines in the lobby were from 2003 and earlier.
There were exactly three guests in the whole hotel, all of whom were planning to leave as quickly as possible.
If your travel agents suggests the Frai Toluca, get another travel agent.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2006

We stayed here for three nights in February 2006. We were charged a rate of 770 Argentinian pesos per night (about USD 260 for this place when booked through our Uk travel agent, this is three times the hotels own rack rate of 250 Argentinian pesos (about 85 USD).

Our room was cramped and shabby, the carpet was threadbare in part. The bathroom was tiny and not very clean.

Breakfast was the worst I ever had in a hotel anywhere. ( orange squash, no fruit, no yoghurt, sliced bread, stale croissants). Dinner was very poor too.

Avoid totally even at the real price
