I stayed here not because I wanted to, but because my apartment in Buenos Aires lost electricity on a very hot night and I needed somewhere close by with air conditioning and wi-fi. I found a good rate (under $50 US) for the same night check in and, based on prior reviews, felt it was a good choice. I arrived... More

We found that this hotel was just fine. Not amazing, but nothing wrong with it either. In fact, the scariest part were the elevators! The room was clean and a queen bed as we'd booked. Our room was close to the elevator so we heard some elevator noise in the night, but nothing we couldn't handle. I appreciated that the... More

The pros and cons of GHBA from a businessman point of view: Pros: The location is great. The personnel is friendly. Service is good. Cons: Breakfast: even when there is an early version available, if you want to enjoy the full one you will have to wait until 7 a.m. Internet: too slow and sometimes with services interruptions. Working space:... More

Booked this hotel for 3 nights based on good recommendations and 4 star ratings on the Booking.com site. It turned out to be a terrible place. It was a family vacation and we had two rooms. Both rooms were old, dirty and the place had bugs (I have the photos). The sheets smelled stale and musty--not a place you want... More

This place was in a great location close to Florida Street. The rooms are clean but small. The bathrooms had no exhaust and the towels they offered were clean, old and frayed. The elevators are really old. Breakfast not exciting. There are no bell boys service. I was surprised that it was a 4 star hotel, it felt like less... More

this hotel is perfectly located if you want to be close to Calle Florida, subway, Galeria Pacifico etc. My room was clean and everything OK. The matress though was rather worn out. Breakfast was OK. WIFI was terrible in the room and bad in the lobby. Friendly staff. As rooms were avaliable I was able to check in in the... More

This was a good enough hotel for spending a few nights, we got there around 4am so the guy on reception was not the friendliest, but it was OK. Good location and breakfast was fine, also our room was nice and plenty of hot water and a comfortable bed.

This hotel is not as nice as appears in website, or in the lobby. This is just an average old hotel. I am writing this review as I believe this hotel is incorrectly displayed as a 4 star hotel on the website (4 stars purely for facilities such as elevator etc), and the photos on the website do not truly...

A very reasonable 3 star hotel with very friendly and helpful reception staff. The room was quite good and the only negative was a noisy 'window-box' air conditioner unit (rattling, as so many do). The buffet breakfast was plentiful and quite acceptable. The location of this hotel is quite good.
