I arrived very early morning at the hotel on January 26 after a long and tiring flight with Argentina Airlines. My 4 day room reservation was starting on the same day but hotel check in time was 1 PM. Head receptionist without any humanly approach said that my room could only be ready after 11 am So either I should... More

Stayed here on a solo trip to Buenos Aires for 3 days and enjoyed it! Great location to many places of interest in Buenos Aires including restaurants and museums. I've been warned to be careful at night around the area as there are many thieves but I had no issues the two nights I was out and about in the... More

After spending roughly a week at this hotel, I have mostly good things to say. The location could not be better. The subway station almost at the door...spacious lobby, with plenty of comfortable chairs to read newspapers etc. Polite doorman and bellboys...The desk staff was mostly courteous and professional, except for one. They provide currency exchange as well. (a big... More

The location is super. The room was great and very comfy. You feel like you are removed from the bustle of the city. The lobby area is very nice. However, the staff just aren't as good as the environment they are in. Every interaction seems difficult. Friendly greetings don't happen. The staff keep their distance as you enter or leave...

We spent a week at the Scala and enjoyed every minute of it. The room was a cool (great air con), quiet haven from the hustle and bustle of BA. Conveniently located next to the main bus routes and subway station. Contrary to previous TA reviews, we found reception staff & cleaning staff professional, helpful and friendly. As previously noted,... More

We stayed in the Scala Hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The room was spacious, bright and spotlessly clean. It was on the first floor facing the inner yard, and it was very quiet. The location is in San Telmo. It takes about 15 minutes to get to Plaza del Majo. The subway station is only couple... More

Scala was comfortable and had good service, but it was a bit far from some of the things popular sights. The room and public areas were clean and well-appointed. Free wi-fi was useful. Good front-desk service.

I arrived in the hotel restaurant for dinner on 17 December 2015 at around 8.30pm and was the only one there - alarm bells should have gone off. After ordering my meal which was a filet steak medium rare, I went about catching up on emails on my mobile phone. After 30 minutes, I enquired about the meal and was... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
