It depends what you are after, and this hotel might nor be for everyone, but my view is 100 percent positive. I stayed for one night with my wife and two children. On a three week holiday in Argentina, during which we stayed in several hostels as well as all kinds of hotels, this was the cheapest place we slept,... More

We love this part of Buenos Aire-s, simple but clean hotel and very near plaza dorego with it's bars and artists. Staff very friendly they let us shower and stay until 5pm (7 hours after check out) while we waited for our flight.

Staying at Hotel Bolivar was just great! I couldn't believe how helpful and friendly and organized people here were. Excellent English is spoken. The rooms are a bit bleak but it's around 16 Euros for a single room, plus I had a wonderful roof terrace coming with it. The room was to the back, and falling asleep was easy. I... More

STAY AWAY! It's not a hotel it's a hostel with shared bathrooms, that are not very clean, other facilities also not in very good shape. Despite fair location the "hotel" have serious problems with electricity, so if you come back after walk around BA - and they will give you a candle, don't be surprised, also they will not give...

I loved the charm of this hostel inside. The door to the room is huge, old classic design. The floor is aged wood and the ceiling was 20 feet high. I thought I got a super deal since I could easily access puerto madero, San Telmo market and buses/subway easily on foot. The staff arranged a bike tour through Tangol... More

Located in the centre of San Telmo it didnt matter that this hotel was basic as we knew we would be out for food and drinks. Close to some great restaurants even being so central it was quiet. The hotel is manned 24hours and reception needs to open the main door for you so security was great. Service was helpful... More

This hotel has the type of accommodations I seek; it is exceptionally well located, and I just had to pay for a bed and a private bath, not for TV or other distractions that would keep me from wondering through such an interesting city. The hotel has a nice room facing the street where one can have meals; there is... More

after going to an awfull hotel i found Hotel Abolivar to be classic and nice, great attention and spacious bedrooms. For $37 a night a double room with private bathroom. The location is the best, just 3 blocks from a plaza with live music, restaurants, bistros. All the neighbourhood is pleasant and shops are everywhere, specially antique stores. Creativity all...

The location could not be any better than this for the price paid. In the heart of San Telmo, a great place to mingle with the locals. Some tourists in San Telmo but mainly during the antique market on Sundays. The reason I say fabulous place for "travellers" is that the average "tourist" would probably find this place to be...
