My main criticism was the lifts. Each time the lift arrived at any floor there was a loud "bing" noise. Unfortunately I could hear the lifts arrival at any floor in the hotel, not just on my floor. And I could hear it clearly in my room, with the door shut, and while wearing ear plugs. The noise from the... More

Althougt this hotel locates in San Telmo - the oldest barrio in Bs As - internally everything is pretty modern. The hotel is also very clean, rooms are spacious and staff is kind (specially Marcelo, afternoon-night front desk guy). I'd come back!

This was a great base for exploring central Buenos Aires. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The location was perfect for us too, meaning that we spent most of our three days in BA walking around to the things we wanted to see. Our room was simply elegant and more than adequate for our stay. As for the breakfast,... More

Back from Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, and before leaving Argentina, I stayed in Buenos Aires a couple of nights. I wasn't sure where to stay in the city and I was hoping it was close to the main attractions in Buenos Aires and it was.It's walking distance from the old port and many other places, and very near good...

Kenton Palace was a wonderful hotel to stay in on my recent trip through Buenos Aires. I have already booked a room there for my next trip. Martin, Gustavo, Marianella and Santiago are four of the staff who stand out for giving excellent service. Most speak very good English and were very helpful when I had questions. Playa de Mayo...

We arrived here on a Sunday morning at about 1000 from our 13 hour flight from Heathrow, so we were delighted that our room was ready. The standard of english of the desk staff was excellent. The room was on the 10th floor (but confusingly numbered 11..) and it was huge. The bed was comfortable, the air-conditioning worked, the hot... More

Almost new hotel,vary large modern rooms, timber floors, immense bathrooms, all services eg lifts, internet , aircond work well unlike some older hotels. Staff keen and friendly. Breakfast simple continental but included fresh fruit salad and fresh orange juice. In BA you must decide what area you want. This location is gritty and old but also full of character. In... More

A must repeat! The staff had excellent command of English short of some street terms. The staff also gave me some tourist tips and tourist warnings. The breakfast buffet was doable not excellent but a good especially with the fresh squeeze orange juice without ice! There are only two hotels they move slow so please be patient and you need...

Not in one of the more affluent areas of BA. Surrounded by less well maintained buildings, lots of graffiti in the area, litter, etc...., a pity as the hotel itself is immaculate! In fact almost too immaculate for us, too clinical. Our room was exactly that, spacious but soulless, no pictures on the walls, only one chair in a room... More
