Great location. Easy walking distance to restaurants and other BA attractions. Small room, VERY thin walls, and a not-so-comfy bed. No problems with WiFi in the room. In-room safe. Bath tub and enough hot water to fill it. Staff speak basic English (better than my Spanish). I did run into a significant problem, though. I initially booked my room online... More

Four of us, two adults and two children, occupied adjacent rooms in this up and coming hotel. Presently four of its nine floors are newly renovated with upgrades addressing most of the negative comments cited by earlier reviewers. We stayed in 'superior' rooms (which may have meant renovated) for about $75 USD per room per night. They were relatively large... More

The neighbourhood is noisy. Rooms are clean but not well decorated. There is no gym room. Breakfast is really Nice but the hôtel does need renovation for style. The bathroom was ok but room furniture really old. The web site description is not consistent with reality

I stayed for one week in February and had a wonderful room on the ninth floor overlooking the main street, 9 Julio. From there it was very easy to walk to May 5 Plaza, the central subway station, and many restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I received a 25% discount for paying in US$.

Set on the world's widest street, this isn't the quietest hotel. But the location makes up for that. It's just 20 mins walk from the city centre, five minutes from the Teatro Colon and near a wide choice of shops and restaurants. Metro stations are close by and the rooms are very large with excellent wifi - great to relax... More

We do not like to spend big bucks on hotels as we only use it as a place to stay overnight. In that respect the hotel met our requirements and expectations. The hotel is rated as a 4-star hotel. We would rate it at the high end of a 3-star hotel. The hotel is "dated", although it seemed like our... More

The hotel is just ok if you are to spend only 1 night here; many things we didn't like but we managed to survive. OK: - Location: 2 blocks away from The Obelisco and downtown - Front desk personnel: the guy who checked in us was nice NOT COOL: - Room with "king size" bed is actually a 2 individual... More

The hotel is located bang in the middle of BA and it serves a decent cold continental-style buffet breakfast. Because of the main road location the noise can certainly becoming annoying if you are in your room and the walls are quite thin so the noise pressure is from without as well as from within. The rooms are small but... More

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
