Hotel desk staff was very understanding when told of my sister's condition and allowed her to come up to our room whenever she stopped by.Hotel staff accomodated early check in at... More

It is an excellent hotel, formidable and strategic location, is a typical 3 star hotel, breakfast no comparison (I suggest you have breakfast later, so save with lunch) and with variety. The rooms have bathtub and are well organized. They exchange money with an excellent rate. Reception very helpful and give good tips for a tour.

Lone receptionist allocated us to a room looking out into the service duct and rusting plumbing. The bed was sagging and the air conditioner noisy. The room is ancient & the bathroom tiny. One can only wonder how they obtained their four stars? The only upside is the excellent location in central BA and the breakfast.

There must be different value systems here - this is NO 4 star hotel. No alarm clock, two plugs for the whole room, no hairdryer, etc. The carpet and bedspreads, lamps are just so nasty, they must be 40 yrs old. Do not stay on the 3rd floor - all the rooms are old and are obviously not in any... More

This hotel is very well located, right next to Lavalle Pedestrian street and thus very near Florida, which makes it good for shopping purposes and well located overall (right on 9 de julio avenue). I stayed for 3 nights and the room was okay, clean and relatively good size. My internet was working more or less (skype calls wouldn't work... More

This was a good spot. The rooms had character and the hotel was in an ideal location. Close to lots of restaurants and centro. The staff were amazing, always eager to give suggestions an answer any questions we had. We booked a tango tour using the hostel that was also quite good, I would recommend it!

I had a pleasant stay on this hotel , this is a later rating i was there in 2008. It had excellent view from the "Obelisco" and its a nice place just to walk around . Had good restaurants nearby and places to just walk trough. Excellent breakfast with gorgeous view of the City . Will definitely stay there again... More

Good location and respectufull staff. Excellent breakfast. BUT: Wifi so bad that it was impossible to use. Mattress extremelly old, like a "nest". Torn sheets, Tiny and old TV. Bathroom worn out... I asked if this was a "non-renovated room" but they said thet rooms are all the same. Not worthy.

The best location in Buenos Aires, just in the centre, close to great restaurants, shops, travel agencies etc. Rooms are quite comfortable. Large and good breakfast buffet. Due to it's location it can't be quiet and it isn't. But for a 4 star hotel in the centre it is cheap. Staff speaks English and they have 2 internet connected computers... More
