This is located near Leon centro bus terminal next to Sheraton hotel. Rate is reasonable. Room is a little bit small but clean. WIFI free. Hot shower. Staffs are kind. You can reach here by bus from Newbery domestic airport.

Our taxi driver recommended this hotel when we needed somewhere to stash our stuff between arriving by plane in B.A. in the morning and leaving for Mendoza by bus that evening. (He advised us not to use the luggage storage lockers at the Retiro bus station.) We had a double room w/ private bath. The shower is basically the entire... More

We paid the extra money for the "suite" (worked out to $36 or so at the Blue Dollar exchange rate), which was on the second floor. There were essentially no windows (they looked out onto a wall), but the suite itself was clean if old. I liked the old-fashioned elevator. The breakfast is typical Argentinian--very simple (packaged muffins with jam).... More

Pluses: Great central location (very close to Florida street, walkable distance from the bus terminal - about 15 minutes), great friendly and very helpfull staff, good internet connection at the reception, cheap. Minuses: THE ROOMS! They are small, very old, used, unkept, broken, water leaked in the shower, bed covers had spots, the general feeling you get is they are... More

Booked here based on a recommendation by Lonely Planet. Checked in and went into the room and shock set in. First off, the door had holes from rotting in it that one could peek into the room and see everything in the room. Easily could have been pushed in through the holes if you wanted to break in and steal.... More

The hotel is well located, but other than than I would not stay there again. We had several types of bugs in our room and a few cockroaches marching on the walls. I was not convinced of the cleanliness of the bathroom, although it said "desinfected". The breakfast was ok and the staff was helpful, on the otherhand. Free wifi... More

I think there is no need to add more! I stayed there only 1 night (it was my last day in Argentina after 1 month of travel...) and got hundreds of bedbug bites. Don't go there!

Sure, it's a $40 hotel in BsAs, so I'm not expecting the Ritz. But there is a lot of downside to this hotel: - the shower is on top of everything! My room had a"private bath", but it was only of those lousy arrangements where the shower was right on top of the toilet and the sink. As soon as... More

My wife and I checked in after a long, long bus ride...we specifically asked for a quiet room...they put us in a room next to a very noisy elevator -- (serious noise -- the room shakes whenever the elevator passes. ) I politely asked for a new room -- apparently all the rooms in the hotel were filled...

$50 with bath and air con, no breakfast. Very central location, great for Retiro bus and train stations and Uruguay ferry - all walkable. Lacking in character and a little noisy, it is in central BA after all, but good value.

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
