Downstairs, a simple check in desk and the breakfast restaurant. 2 small elevators to small rooms that have everything you want and perfectly clean. Small fridge and bar items.

Location: great. Room: good size, good enough beds, good shower; but it was not at all lighty as in official pictures - it was really dark (walls in black and dark purple); had little ventilation (the window didn't open much), was a bit noisy and the towels were dreadful: old, frayed and looking dirty. Staff: kind and helpful, though it... More

I have been travelling for three months, through Cuba, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina. I've stayed in a range of budget and Boutique hotels and this place is by far the worst. No in room Internet unless you pay $9USD per day or $3USD an hour and it isn't great. The rooms are medievally dark, without ample light to... More

basically the worst experience in the hotel was the small room and that I had to pay for wifi in that room but the price was good for what they have to offer. The staff was very attentive, everything was very clean and the location is nice.

Good breakfast, with fresh fruit and delicious "medial umas". Good neighborhood, close to Recoleta square, good location. Close to subway. Helpfull staff. Breakfast room was too small. We had to wait for a table almost every day. Bedrooms were nice but dark. Good value for money.

Having just stayed in this hotel for a night on a short trip to BA from Cordoba and onwards to Japan I can say it is good if your needs are only just above basic. With this I don’t mean it is bad place to stay at all. Rooms are comfortable enough, with air conditioning and all. Shower is also... More

In my opinion this is not a hotel for tourists since it is not exactly near from the main points of tourist interest. It is in a quiet, elegant area. There is some sophistication in the decoration and the small rooms are well planned. I liked the dark colours of the room which had all the extras I needed (fast... More

The hotel is a bit worse than the other Dazzler hotels but nevertheless it's good. Rooms in general are clean and, although they are not precisely big, they are OK. Location is also good (atlhough there are no shops near, you can easily get to them from the hotel). Breakfast was OK too. The best thing about the hotel is... More
