Spent a week there in March 2015 and had a nice stay. Would not have any problem to go back to the hotel. It is very nice once and it has a good standard. The rooms are very nice and clean. The location is also good, but it of course depends on what you intend to do in Buenos Aires.... More

Stayed here one night en route to join a cruise. Easy taxi journey from airport and situated right on Av 9 July. Reception staff good - requested a quiet room and got a very pleasant one looking out of the back of the hotel. Room comfortable with all facilities including free wifi. Didn’t include breakfast, but there is a great... More

We were very pleased with the hotel, the location and the service provided by the very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. The room was very clean and modern. The strength of the free wi-fi was very good. The staff at the reception and dining room spoke good English. On our return from a cruise we stayed at another, more expensive hotel... More

In the most northern part of San Telmo, just south of Centro. When you first enter this hotel you think you've entered a true gem. The columned drive up, the doorman and beautiful lobby are very welcoming, like the wizard of Oz's magical show. Just don't look behind the curtains, as the fairy tale is not the amazing fantasy you... More

We stayed at Scala Hotel Buenos Aires by Cambremom and I will say this a fine hotel for the price! It is located in San Telmo, I believe, but can walk to Cafe Tortoni and continue onto Pink House, Cathedral, Plaza Mayo in about 8 - 10 city blocks.. What can I say - GREAT ACCOMMODATIONS! If I ever go... More

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The room was large and airy and had good amenities. The only additional thing that we would have liked would have been a kettle. Despite other reviews to the contrary we found the wifi good with a strong signal most of the time. The location was great and it was easy to walk... More

As I don't like small elevators (having been trapped twice) I asked the front desk if she could change my room from 9th floor to a room on a lower floor. She searched with good humour and found me a room on second floor. She was pleased to be of help. The hotel is modern, clean and in a good... More

We just stayed one night, asked for a late checkout, ( as our flight was at midnight) Florncia said they would be very full the next night so we could only stay until 12-1. That was fine as usual checkout is 10am. When we went to double check this at 11 the next morning we were told we were already... More

This hotel is located in the downtown area just a few blocks from San Telmo, on a major Boulevard close to everything. Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was simple but adequate and the staff were attentive and very helpful. Tip: The staff helped out with everything from obtaining blue pesos to negotiating taxi fares. I would highly recommend... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at this conveniently located hotel and didn't experience the problem with staff that some other reviewers have mentioned. One note of caution: the hotel arranged for transport to EZE airport for us at a cost of 300 pesos. However when we got to the airport, the driver asked us for another 20 pesos to... More
