The hotel itself is nice. Modern and well kept. I only stayed here one night (Saturday night to Sunday), got in late and left early because I was going to be going to Uruguay on the Buquebus, so I did not get to see what the breakfast spread was like or any of the other amenities that the hotel offers....

My first few nights in the Rochester M were good. It is centrally located and a great spot for walking around during the day. The staff there is friendly and helpful and there are many options for breakfast. The last few nights, however, I had more than a few issues with the hotel. Pros: Location is good during the day....

It's supposed to be a 4 star hotel, and it might be, BUT it is built on top of a metro station, and everything shakes whenever the metro goes by. At first I thought it was because I was next to the elevator, but when I went for breakfast the next morning I realised it was shaky all over the... More

The room was huge and had everything I needed. The location was very central and convenient, but there was a lot of street noise and the street had a seedy feel. However, I did not feel unsafe there. When I stayed, I got a price of around US$33/night. A great deal. The Saturday before Ash Wednesday was going for almost... More

Its centrally located and you can walk to several tourist & non-tourist sites if you chose to. Tons of places to eat surround it. It was our home base for Buenos Aires and we stored our luggage there when we took the Buquebus to Uruguay for a few days at no charge. The first room we had was nice and... More

My brother and I stayed here recently as a day stay since our flight back to the US didn't leave until late in the evening. For that, it was ok, but we were incensed at the blatantly false advertising of free wifi. You get exactly 30 minutes for free, even though it was advertised for free. Not only that, but... More

Stayed here prior to cruise for 3 nights November 2013. Pleasantly surprised as we were treated like a 4 star hotel! Rooms comfortable, quiet, beds goos and all very clean! Carried our luggage up on arrival and down on departure. English speakers always available. Terrific location in safe area wit plenty of great restaurants walking distance. Front desk could not...

This hotel was in an excellent location, within walking distance of many of the major attractions. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. However, upon arriving at the hotel we were told that our booking had been cancelled. We had no knowledge of this as we had emailed the hotel before arriving in buenos aires and they stated our booking... More

We stayed at the Rochester M three times at various points in our trip around Argentina. The first stay was quite disappointing and if we hadn't pre-paid I'd have cancelled the other two.

This is a lovely modern hotel located close to the 'walking streets' of Buenos Aires. The reception is welcoming and friendly and make a effort to assist with information, call a taxi or make suggestions - they always had a member that could speak a good English (especially Lucas?).
