My wife and I were traveling in Argentina and our travel agent booked us in the Loi Suites Esmeralda. Let me begin by saying that calling this a suite is a joke. A tiny kitchen with a two burner cooktop that had to be lit with a match while the gas was on. Cockroaches in the room. Located next to... More

As a break from the tent during an overland trip we stayed in a 2 bed apartment with kitchenette for 5 nights. It was a very good price, a lovely apartment and I thought the place was great. Kept very clean, great layout of the rooms, amenities in the bathroom and really good aircon. Great wifi in the lobby. I... More

We scored this hotel as part of a package. Check was not a good start. No help with our bags from the transport or to the room. We requested a plug for the bath early on and despite a reminder, it never arrived, Reception staff seemed surly, disintereted and acually walked as we approached the counter. Rooms are smallish, a... More

Our last time in this apart hotel was around 20 years ago. Our expectations were not high, and the overall service quality we received last week was VERY POOR. The Heating system in the room we got (Nro 608) was out of order (in Winter time!!). We requested several times from 11 PM to 2 AM) the front desk to... More

We as family stayed there while visiting Argentina. Room was fresh and cleaned daily, staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast not outstanding but fine for this type of hotel. 5min walk from famous shopping street - Florida. Well located in the city. Will visit again

Reception was poor, had to ask for a map of the city. No wifi in rooms, have to pay if you want it in your room. Very slow wifi in lobby. Rooms and carpet a bit outdated, can hear patrons in next room. Can hear air conditioners in other rooms. Breakfast fair, only plain yoghurt no fruit yoghurt. Can't take... More

This hotel in the BA business district is very convenient because of locality to excellent restraunts, shopping, the subway, the port and historic aspects of this city. But convenience is only the start as the staff helped in an accepting, understanding and supportive way when my passport was stolen while travelling on the subway to the zoo. When you do... More

This was a convenient hotel for a reasonable rate. The rooms were clean & tidy & spacious compared to other places in BA. The staff are friendly & some speak English which helps. Only downsides really are the small lifts which could barely fit my boyfriend & i & our luggage & the breakfast, which I preferred a sleep in... More

This was possibly one of the worst hotels I have had the misfortune of staying in in 30 years of extensive global travel. Rude staff who have no intention of helping guests - much more content to stand around talking behind reception while you are waiting rather than trying to assist, terrible check-in procedure, dirty rooms, soft, lumpy uncomfortable beds,...
