We enjoyed our stay at the Room Mate Carlos and would recommend it others. If you're looking for a lively, bar atmosphere, don't stay here. While there is a very cool-looking lobby, the bar is no longer stocked and working. However, the staff was super friendly and efficient. We liked the decor and feel of the large, loft-style rooms with... More

Website looks very funky, reality is a little different though as its definitely past its best. Staff were great but the major let down was the beds which we couldn’t sleep on as they were so hard. Location is a little far from the centre around 15 minutes walk to the Obelisk or even further to the main shopping street.

This was our second visit to this beautiful hotel, after the first one, 3 years ago. No doubt the Hotel is still a design jewel. No doubt the rooms are a delight, but they are not that comfortable and the beds are harder than a wooden board. The service and amenities included are really poor. The front desk personnel is...

First and probably the best hotel I´ve been during my staying in Argentina. Let´s begin with the staff - very friendly, helpful, dedicated. A very special thank you to Diana - she´s is a magnificient host. About the rooms they are impressive due to the design and for the fact that you stay in a two floors bedroom but also... More

So pleased with Room Mate Carlos! We pretty much have a whole apartment to ourselves. The building maintains its 100 year old charm and has recently been recorated with a funky and modern twist. The peole are so friendly and helpful. The price is amazing and can't find a better location in relation. Definitely a yes!

Funky style lobby, massively tall door to our loft room, industrial/urban feel, very spacious and comfortable. It was an easy walk to various sights in BA. The front desk staff were always friendly and made good suggestions for places to eat and things to see in the area. The included 'buffet' breakfast was the same each day, mostly cereals, pastries...

Great location, close to landmarks, underground and main streets. Balcony views are nice. Rooms were very cool with a loft design. Staff very helpful. Only let down was the breakfast as it was a bit simple.

This hotel has a great location and really very interesting design on the inside. The receptionists are very nice. The breakfast is average. The hotel is run down, very poor maintenance and the bi-level room was not clean enough. Not recommended for the price.

The hotel is located in the center of BA. We had a loft room which was huge and well furnitured and designed. I'd clearly go back to this hotel but I also need to mention that it's a bit run down and some renovations are necessary. For instance the bathroom window was broken or the closet in the living room... More

The bedding and the room were clean, but there was a clear lack of maintance (like the rest of Buenos Aires). Quite some noise from the 9 Julio, but we slept well. The service was great, but the maintenance of the building is far from the Room Mate hotels in Madrid and Barcelona. They better fix this or drop it... More
