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.

In it's time this must have been a very grand hotel, as evidenced by some of the original fixtures and fittings that can still be found there; sadly that time was nearly 100 years ago, and the whole place is now very faded and tired. The rooms are adequate , the wi-fi works in the lobby, and the location is... More

Nice hotel, with old, but lovely interior in colonial style. Very good breakfast buffet. We liked the central location at Avenida de Mayo, just a few steps from Avenida d. 9. julio. Very helpfull staff at the front desk.

The building is beautiful and in a great part of town. That being said, the rooms are in desperate need of renovation. There is a general grimy feeling throughout the building. Although we were put in a "nonsmoking" room our room smelled horrible and there were ash trays in the hall of our nonsmoking floor.
