This hotel is not super fancy and the breakfast is not the biggest, but the location is great, the rooms are comfortable and the staff is nice. Is also interesting the place itself, being a very old fashion structure.

It is a very well located hotel, with an excelent customer service. Location and good price makes a perfect combination every time we visit Buenos Aires. The rooms are spacious and clean. Good breakfast, when is included in the reservation. Pros: location, price, availability. Cons: A/C very noisy, room and bathroom a little outdated.

The hotel is located by the 9 de julio avenue, in a very convenient spot. It's not that close to Palermo, but taxi is so cheap it didn't make a difference. Loved the room, wich faced the street as i had requested after reading the reviews here. The room was spacious, with no carpet and a nice bathroom. The double... More

The Gran Hotel Argentino is located pretty much in the Center of Buenos Aires, right on the Avenida 9 de Julio/Carlos Pellegrini rd with 16 lanes across. This is why it probably is a good idea to take a room facing the back yard, where you will only be disturbed by the humming air conditioning units. The room is furnished... More

We found the room to be nice value. It was small but comfortable. The air conditioning was good. Only negative was the sink. The spigot is too far forward and the sink so shallow it was hard to wash without splashing oneself. Wifi was free only for 20 min in the restaurant. Otherwise you had to pay 10 pesos per... More

Our family of 5 stayed here for 1 + 2 nights en route to Ushuaia and on our return. The first stay was awful as we were put into grubby, dark and dingy rooms on the 3rd floor - facing a wall. Water leaked from the base of the toilet and we were most disappointed as we had already booked... More

I have stayed here twice and each time is great. it is centrally located on the widest avenue in the world. Staff is very helpful and can arrange airport transportation for you. This is an older hotel in a downtonw type environment but it has always worked well for me.

The first time we visited this great hotel was for 2 nights in 2008, thanks to Tripadvisor! Now we came back for a one night stay. It is just what you need if you plan to use the hotel to sleep and have breakfast. The double room is adequate size with a very clean bathroom and a great shower. The... More

We chose this hotel for an overnight stay between flights in and out of Buenos Aires. The location was good and we were able to walk to a very interesting restaurant in the main tourist area of Buenos Aires. The room was clean enough but I felt like we were staying in a rabbit warren because the corridors were narrow... More
