They tried to give us a standard room for the price of a suite. We caught them in a lie and managed to force them to change our rooms. We had no water in our room when we woke up in the morning. And they said it was because of some city works. It also means they have no water... More

We chose the hotel based on a friend's experience in March and a NYTimes mention. We were surprised at how stripped down the rooms were when we first arrived; no frills, no chest of drawers, really bare. We were at the hotel 3 nights, went to Mendoza and returned for another few nights. When we returned the elevator was broken,... More

The location is perfect. Other than that, this hotel is a disaster. As well pointed out by other guests, the rooms are nothing like the photos in their website. The bed, the TV and the balcony were ok. There was a nonstop, strong obnoxious sewage smell in the lobby, elevator and halls. The front desk employee explained they had a... More

They either photoshopped most of the images or had an incredibly talented photographer shoot the hotel. The lobby is very worn down and smells dingy beyond belief. The rooms are so worn and torn I am debating changing hotels. I would say this is a high end hostel more than anything else. Get a better experience anywhere else! No spa... More

We stayed at Ultra early January for a weekend and we had a very enjoyable and relaxing time. The location is great for exploring Palermo and surrounding neighbourhoods like Belgrano and Villa Crespo. Also,the recommendations and help given to us by the receptionists Adrian was greatly appreciated and added to our stay. We also found the price to be of... More

Stayed here recently while on a business trip in the region. First impressions not good, arriving on a very hot day to find the lift out of order, the room unacceptable (mould on one wall), and the swimming pool a disgusting murky bath. Credit to Adrian, at the front-desk, he tried very hard to help, changed my room to an... More

Outdated and dirty rooms / Swimming pool in very poor state. Horrible service and poor breakfast. Refused our request of a late check-out even though the hotel was almost empty. Thankfully, we were only staying at this hotel one night. Well located, that's it indeed!

Well placed, in the "place to be" area, ie. Soho. Breakfast is good, rooms are nice and clean. Choose one with a balcony, you'll "breathe" a bit better in terms of view. People working there are efficient and keen to help. So don't hesitate, it's a good address.

Perfect location, that's it! Outdated rooms which should be renovated immediately. Swimming pool without water en pooldeck in very poor state. Service level horrible, one front desk manager en no senior management present. Due to power outages in the area and hotel we had no hot water and airco was on and off. There was no excuses and intention to... More
