Admittedly, the items above a "guy" items but they aren't that common in Argentina. HSC has a new wing in which we were put. Only downside is that smoking and non-smoking aren't strictly separated and perhaps some of the guests ignore the no-smoking rules. Beds are doubles -- no queens that we could see. PIllows are the long kind and soft. English is not spoken at the front desk but the usual smiling back-and-forth gets things done. There is one rate for cash and another for cards. Location is nifty -- the Carrefour is literally around the corner and the best sandwich shop in town is around the other way. You're five blocks from the harbor and three from the main drag. They do charge the tourist rates but that seems unavoidable in Argentina. I will say we were not able to book this on the internet but that probably isn't the hotel's issue. An Argentine friend called and got us in.
