I had booked this hotel for 4 days, pre-payed. Upon check-in, I noticed that I could not use the in-room safe (inside the closet - it was not digital but mechanical, with a dial). I went down to the reception and asked for help with setting up the safe so that I can lock my valuables. The receptionist (who spoke... More

The location is excelent, also the staff. I felt rather confortable at the hotel. It would be nice to have a bigger TV, but it is not an issue. As for the location, it is close to Recoleta, Obelisco and so on, it is also convenient if you get there by train, since it close to Retiro train station.

Well placed hotel, good staff and comfortable rooms. Price is good. Our AC didi not work but that was the only hiccup. The hotel is in a good area and easy to walk in the area. Theres a small supermarket down Libertad where you can buy drinks and use the room refrigerator to cool, Rather than paying bar frige prices.... More

We booked on Hotwire and got an incredibly cheap price for a triple room and breakfast. My 4 star rating reflects the value for money for the price we paid. I found the location great, easy to walk to many places, loads of buses stop nearby, Metro is 10 minute walk away. Our room on the first floor was pretty... More

The ac did not work properly and the tv was small and far away. Also the safety box was closed and could not be used. I... More

TLDR:Great service, awesome location, very nice staff, and affordable. We made a last minute reservation and did not go through a lot of reviews before doing so. A day before arriving, I started digging into this reviews and was just really stressed out because it looked like a terrible place to stay. Now, the reality of our stay . We... More

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.
