old, tired, in need of a lot of attention. if you can stay here cheaply, for maybe two night max, then it could be acceptable. but if you can afford a little more, there are so many other better choices in Buenos Aires. Although this hotel is, technically, in Palermo .. it's not in the bit of Palermo you want... More

We chose this hotel for a one night stopover in BA because of its proximity to the domestic airport. The receptionist spoke excellent English and was very helpful. The room was spacious with a separate lounge and bedroom. The floors are hard faux parquetry. We had room 1001 and were awoken by somebody in the room above wearing heels, either... More

It´s the best option when travelling with kids. I stayed 4 nights with my husband and 3 kids. The apartment had 2 separate rooms, 2 bathrooms and a dinning room with a terrace. Windows have blinds which is great for the children´s safety. Location is excelent. Palermo is one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires. It has a... More

This Hotel has a good location at a reasonable price in the Palermo district. Within walking distance of restaurants and shopping and the subway. Taxi from airport is $50 US. Good air conditioning which was critical due to high outside temps. They advertise wi-fi and give you Logon on info but we could never get connected, they said due to... More

Lucky we used the hotel only as as a stopover for 1 night. The good it is close to the Aeroparque airport. This is a typical hotel that needs a renovation, 70´s style with poor beds and a really terrible shower. It was hardly possible to take a decent shower without the water flooding all over the bathroom. If you... More

Stayed one night in January 2014, for tourism purposes. I just needed a place to crash in Buenos Aires, to allow some slack in my schedule between flights to Ezeiza airport and from the Aeroparque. Hence I didn't require much. The room didn't cost much, and had a great location, so I ended up here. The room was quite large... More

Don't try to judge the pictures for any sort of quality. This is a very old hotel with very basic rooms. Our shower flooded the bathroom after every use. We wanted a cheap hotel and if you have a family or know that its going to be a basic stay, I would say its okay. The hotel has three working... More

There was a damp smell all aroubd the hotel, the wooden floors were loose, cupboards were dusty and smelly, kitchen was very filthy, there was way better accommodation for the exact same price.. Pictures are deceiving... On the good side, the location is great

We stayed two nights in the hotel. It's location is great to stroll through Palermo, or run in the nearby parks. They gave us a twin bed room which came in a little apartment style, living room.
