Was our last night before flying out after 30 days in South America. Picked the location as quick getaway to Ministro Pistarini International Airport (Eze) Airport (still 40 mins drive down the tollway). Was 9 kms from Jorge Newbery Airport. Close to heaps of restaurants/cafe and has plenty of antique shops to keep one occupied. Not far from CBD and... More

You can get just about anywhere easily from here. Lots of restaurants, bars, and markets nearby. The property itself has a secure entry system so not just anyone can walk in off the street. The common areas were nice and just as described on their website. The rooms were fine- simple sleeping rooms with clean white linens on the beds... More

Clean rooms and common areas. Friendly staff at the reception and at breakfast. Free internet on computers in the common room. Large tv screen. Standard breakfast of pastries, fruit, tea and coffee. Swimming pool...but too small to do lengths!

At the heart of barrio San Telmo, this hostel & hotel is simply the best. I´d been there hosting and working. Difficult not to recommend. Definitly I´ll go again!!! Good little restaurants at the zone, perfect to visit Buenos Aires.

Except for one of the receptionists that wasn't really nice. I talked with 3 receptionists, the argentinian one was really helpful and was always really helpful, the blonde one (I'm sorry for not knowing his name) wasn't.

Very nice budget hotel, well located, close to the subway (called "Subte"). Friendly and young staff (it's also a hostel), good breakfast (don't miss the " medialunas"). Argentinean power outlets are different, but the staff sell adapters for a little over a dollar (Luke $1.25) for your devices.

This place is defiantly a hotel rather than a hostel, I suppose your experience might be slightly different in a shared room a but the private rooms are just like hotels. The hotel is well located in San Telmo, we were there at the weekend so busted the Sunday market which was literally 5 mins up the road. The staff... More

There are things that could be improve. No TVs in the private room. The breakfast is regular. The staff was nice. Sadly the rooms hadn´t the plug adapter for the electric energy so be alert in order to buy one on the way. The hotel is nicely ubicated and you can go walking to a lot of turistic places from...
