Making a tour in Argentina we stayed 3 nights in hotel Castelar. The location is excellent to visit the centre. The reception and breakfast room are very nice and decorated. Breakfast is excellent. However the rooms are very noisy, very old furniture, very old and dirty carpets. Staff is very helpful at the reception. Impossible to open the windows due... More

We arrived at 11 pm and were buzzed in to the side door, not the revolving door, but they were very welcoming. Our room was quiet but basic, with a good sized bathroom. Everything worked fine. The best part was walking out the door, and finding a nice bistro a block away for dinner and drinks along with the locals.... More

The grandeur and potential of the Castelar were quite appealing but beyond that, it's pretty shabby (dirty carpeting, torn upholstery, etc.) The internet was so bad we had to move twice to get to find a room with a good connection but then we had to suffer a lot of street noise. On the positive side, it's a great location;... More

A good choice in BA at a very reasonable price. Very close to the most important BA Subte lines for tourists and to several nice restaurants. Rooms are somewhat small but interesting and secure. The breakfast is an excellent buffet with an assortment of fresh and wholesome food. The staff is very helpful. The hotel has a bank-like secure walk-in... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks with a group of friends and enjoyed the experience. The location is very central with a Subte stop right outside and bus stops to La Boca, Recoleta and incredibly, even the number 8 to the airport, within 1 or 2 streets of the main entrance. Our room was up on the 10th floor facing... More

We asked for a room change after the first night of NO SLEEP owing to schools students banging on doors, running up and down the corridors, shouting and playing loud music right next to our room. We got a room change all right - to another room which had even rowdier students and though we rang reception 3-4 times through... More

I liked this hotel (past tense). I had stayed there several years ago as well and had a positive memory of my time there despite the small, tight quarters of my room. This hotel is historic. Good location... And the spa/sauna is a real plus.. But this time around I was surprised to find they tried to charge me nearly... More

The Castelar is an old classic kind of hotel. Though our room was small and a little noisy, the overall atmosphere of the hotel overcame these inconveniences. It is centrally located to almost all of the city. The sauna is great. The breakfasts were also very good.

This hotel may has more than 100 years but it is well maintained, very well located just one block from subway and 9 de julho Street. The bedroom was big and the breakfast was good. I would definitely stay there again!

Friendly service, nice breakfast and good location. However, the rooms are cramped and the hotel needs some remodeling. Wifi didn't always work. Rooms to the street are noisy so i requested a room in the back. They had no problem in changing rooms and were very friendly about it.
