The Rochester is a very good base to explore BA. It's close to most sights by walking. The buffet breakfast is very good and varied. The staff are friendly and efficient. Our double room was really tight, but clean. Thank goodness my partner and I are small people otherwise, anyone over 5' would struggle in such a small space with... More

I work for a travel agent and sent two clients to Rochester Classic for 7 nights. The location is ok, but they reported of poor rooms and bad service from the hotel when they tried to change rooms. I tried to contact the hotel from Norway, but got no response after several e-mails. The clients reported that the reception is... More

We stayed in the Rochester for 3 nights on our first venture to Buenos Aires. The hotel is very nice, with clean rooms and good bathrooms. As well as this, it was very reasonably priced as we got a good offer online. The Rochester is a nice hotel if you planning a short stay and know where you are going... More

An ideal location in the middle of Buenos Aires- Walking Distance to the shopping areas and Museums. The service was generally good. Courteous Staff. Rooms were clean and breakfast was good. Rooms on the sixth floor are very quiet. International calls are not costly and are freely available.

the only thing i didn't appreciate were the situation of the room, looking on a wall which didn't permet us to see how the weather was, and the bath room, restored but anyway not so pleasant. However everything was clean and staff very friendly and helpfull.

The hotel was in a street not far from the main shopping and tourist areas and felt safe. We had a suite that was clean and spacious but was situated in the middle of the hotel and therefore had no view except a quadrangle of other rooms and little light. Some reception staff were excellent but others almost surly and... More

Low price and - presumably - good location. Somehow one should know where one would end up in. It's ok, not brilliant. One could tell that it's an old building that was restored. I have been in this hotel 4 times in the last 12 months.

Great location in central Buenos Aires, near the Lavalle subte station, clean rooms, good wi-fi, and nice staff. The breakfast was absolutely incredible. Not much more could you ask for in a hotel for this price.

Stayed one night at room 614, twin beds. To my surprise room was large, beds comfortable, two closets, one small table, lcd tv with good variety of channels. Room also had a large window, good ilumination. Staff is friendly and helpful, decent English and sketchy Portuguese. Hotel location is great, two streets away from Florida street, from 9 de julio...
