I visited this hotel three times as it is central in a safe neighbourhood with many restaurants in walking distance. There are desk stations in the lobby and the front desk spoke English.

We had 4 nights pre-paid and booked at the Conquistador in Buenos Aires, a 4-star hotel centrally placed near most tourist sights. In the early evening of our first day we sighted the first cucaracha (cockroach) in the bathroom... but hey... never mind, the hotel was a good deal, no? after spotting the second cockroach just before going to sleep,...

This is a 4 star hotel, but keep in mind the star classification in Argentina does not directly match the one from the US. Local hotels are older and less fancy. Wi-Fi was free. Breakfast is served on the 10th floor and is generous. This hotel is well located, just a block from 9 de Julio avenue and about 3... More

Centrally located in the Retiro area. All the amenities of a four star hotel without the price. Spacious room. Front desk was helpful and spoke excellent English. Nice complimentary full buffet breakfast. I would come back.

3-4 stars. Hotel is located in the heart of Buenos Aires, walking distance to most major attractions. We didn't use public transportation at all. Reached Recoleta in 30 minutes and San Telmo in about 45 minutes. Front desk staff spoke English, which was helpful. Room was good with free WiFi. Standard buffet breakfast as quite good. Price was reasonable.

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
