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

Overall, I really liked this place. The rooms were really nice, with a great layout, and quite spacious too. I would almost describe it as a small apartment. The hotel is centrally located, and within walking distance of just about everything in central BA. The staff was all cheerful, friendly and helpful too. Honestly, I really cannot fault this place...

Great concept loft style rooms, huge space with balcony. Hotel is based in a 100 year-old building and you can really feel the atmosphere. Breakfast is good. Rooms are located in a way that you don't hear any noise from the street or from the neighbors. Near Tango Portegno and staff at the reception is always ready to book tickets... More

A great apartment with masses of space. A lovely kitchen area, just a shame it lacked basic utensils. Large seating area made it very comfortable to relax. The sleeping platform and bathroom upstairs gave even more room.

We stayed only one half of one night at this hotel hence I am not a position to give a full impression of the hotel. We arrived after 1:00 am on a flight from Santiago to Ezeiza and had to catch a flight the next morning from Jorge Newbery. It was good to see the staff still at the reception... More
