My friend and I stayed in the hotel in late Dec 2013. We paid around USD190 for the room. It was a rather old property with 2 elevators. The reception area is spacious and the staff were very helpful. The location is close to many attractions. The room is OK, with air con working properly. Just don't expect to have... More

Upon checking in, we found our room to be quite disappointing given we had paid approximately $150/night. As we walked to our room a heavy, a garlic laden odor permeated the hall and foreshadowed what we were about to discover. Although the room was clean, one had the impression whoever had furnished the room got tired and forgot to return... More

Stayed here for one night as we were returning back from the North to Sao Paulo. Proximity to Santos Dumont huge bonus for facilitating arrival and departure. Flamengo with nearby Catete are well-placed, safe, bustling areas in Rio, with restaurants a plenty (try Cafe Lamas, highly recommended; Porcao, only worth it for the views). Staff real friendly, attentive and helpful.... More

Pretty good hotel - I was here on my own for a couple of days and I could book tours with the front desk with relative ease... The breakfast was the best breakfast I had in Brazil, I think. A huge variety of food to choose from - hot food, cold food, cake (cake for breakfast seems to be a... More

The reception staff weren't great but the rest of the staff were really friendly and helpful. The building is well presented and the room was a good size if a little bare and soulless. Free wifi with a good strong signal in the lounge. Breakfast was really good. In an interesting area of town, close to the beach and transport... More

Book this hotel via Intrepid Travel for the Brazil Carnival. Hotel was pretty good. Location was pretty good as well. Everything seemed to be 15 minutes walk away. Breakfast service was pretty good. The staff were helpful and friendly. Made recovery from my carnival exploits very easy.

I found this hotel by chance... I was in Rio for a businness trip and the hotel where my team and I had reservations simply "lost" them. Then I walked the street behind and entered Argentina Hotel, desperate.... Front desk guys promptly found us rooms, at a very good rate! The hotel is located in Flamengo neighbourhood, not far from... More

I am staying at the Argentina Hotel for a conference in July 2012. This hotel is mostly as previously noted: good variety of food at breakfast, free computers for guest use in the lobby, satisfactory wifi connections in the rooms, and relatively close to the Flamengo Metro station. Also as previously noted: the staff don't speak much English and the... More
