We had 10 beautiful days in this hotel. The stuf was helpful, but their English wasn't that good. Room are clean and beautiful, just the toilet is bit dark. The only serious complain is about breakfast, except eggs everything else was sweet and very poor variety, not even ham.

The hotel is located very close to the obelisk and it's an old building with has been restored. It's beautiful and the staff is really nice. Everything was clean and tidy. If you have difficulties climbing stairs I would recommend telling the staff during your reservation because our room was a duplex with stairs which would not be convenient for... More

My wife and I stayed here in July and we had a great time. There are some negative points such as the noise coming from the main streets and a leaky roof during a storm we had during the finale between Germany and Argentina, lol. The staff is really kind and helpful, specially Andres and Leandro, who helped us with... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location on the corner of Av. De Mayo and Av. 9 Julio right between two subway stations and close to the central monuments of Plaza de Mayo and Congress. This hotel seems to be so proud of their design... For me it looks tasteless and over-eclectic. When it comes to more practical... More

I like this hotel for its location (right in the centre of the city with metro right in front the hotel), friendly and helpful staff, spacious room (we had the studio room with mezzanine - perfect for having two huge luggages), comfortable bed and great value for money. However, the biggest problem with this hotel is the noise. The walls... More

Location is perfect: city center. Moreover, a metro station is right in front of the hotel. As you enter the hotel you can see at first a large hall. In the corner is a reception booth and to the right - a large restaurant in antiquarian style. It reminds a museum. You can see there such interesting things as an... More

The hotel is clean, the bed comfortable and the staff lovely and helpful. The style just add a charm to it all ;o) It is close to the Casa Rosada and San Telmo Market and just in front of the metro. We've just loved it!!!

La Fresque has an unusual interior and style. Seems, the hotel building was formerly a factory or a store house and now is refurbished into a decent hotel. The room where I stayed was two-levelled, with antique style furniture and modern amenities such as bathroom fitments, flat screen tv, air conditioning and tea/coffee making facilities. Hearty buffet breakfast has been... More
