It is a small modest little hotel but it is right in the middle of everything downtown. It is on a pedestrian walking street and if you get a back room it is total silence! It is actually a 5 minute walk from the obelisk which is the very center of buenos aires. If you are there in their winter... More

I gave Hotel El Cabildo a 2/5 only because it is in a great location in the 700 section of the Lavalle pedestrian street. There is plenty of activity going on in this area with many choices for restaurants and shopping. It is within easy walking distance of most of the downtown landmarks and the Sunday market on Calle Defensa.... More

Hotel is modest 1*, but I personally would put them one star more. It is not suitable for groups, but ideal for individuals who are on budget. Hotel has 5*, rooms are all equiped with bathroom, A/C and TV. Poor WI-Fi in the rooms though. Breakfast is served in a near by restaurant and if you are staying few days... More

For the first time at Buenos Aires and we had booked this hotel pure for its location. In case we are in a city, we walk a lot and want to be near the public transportation. We didn't know what to expect, but the hotel is small (as well as the rooms) but the location makes up right for it.... More

If you're visiting Buenos Aires as a tourist and for a short time (a week or less) it's a great place to stay. It's located between two peatonal streets with lots of shops and bars. Just 3 blocks away from Puerto Madero, 2 blocks from Plaza de Mayo and 5 blocks from the famous Barrio San Telmo. You won't get... More

Some complain about small rooms with small windows. While this is true, I must point out that the rooms were quiet, the beds were comfortable, the staff was helpful, the location was convienient (we could walk to Plaza San Martin, the Obelisk, Casa Rosada, Teatro Colon, Cafe Tortoni, and Calle Florida). It was also near the subte and stops for... More

This hotel is small, cold and dark. The rooms are very small. The place is clean but you can do much better for the price. The pictures on its website are not accurate. The breakfast is terrible and the hotel has no lobby, no parking, and you cannot even get a car to park in front of it so you... More
