One would think that paying almost $100.00 (US) per night would render a hotel whose carpets are clean; however, the River Hotel in Buenos Aires had such ugly, soiled carpets in my room that I actually lost my appetite for dinner. I told the ftont desk that quite a few other things were wrong with this hotel. First, there was... More

We choose this hotel based on the perceptions of the people here and the cost (Aproximatelly US$50). Looking in the map the hotel was pretty closed to the Congress Square at walking distance of 9th July Av and other important sites. When we reached the hotel we had the 1st disappointment: even being in a good 'global location' the main... More

We found it a small, personal hotel with friendly, cooperative staff, and patronized by professional and middle-class South Americans with a sprinkling of other foreigners.... More

My wife and I stayed at the River Hotel from October 26-31. The hotel is two to three years old and is in excellent condition. It is in a middle class area known as Congreso. We paid $41/night and had a fair sized room which was immaculately clean. The bathroom was spotless and included shower, wash basin and bidet. The... More

They have suites (a little larger, having a small sitting area) for about US$55. The rate of US$42 for the River Hotel was actually negotiated in pesos, in person at the front... More
