No complaints about this place - really good value and would recommend it. Rooms are clean and quiet although slightly small. Although on a scruffy street, the location is good and safe. The staff are super helpful, helping us with tours and currency exchange. Their English is not good, but our basic Spanish and Google translate got us through!

While I arrived, the counter asked if I could speak Spanish. (And their dog came around!) Getting my "no," they tried hard to use Google Translate to "tell" me everything I should know about the hotel and the neighborhood. They provided two volunteer-guided city tour chances, and I like the recommendation! The rooms are clean and quiet, yet the TV... More

I've just left here today and wanted to write a review because I was so happy with my choice to stay here. The room is small and you share a bathroom so if you're not OK with that look elsewhere. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom and enjoy staying in a place with character and personal attention this may... More

Was traveling solo; spent 6 pleasant days in Viejo Telmo. Was provided a room with a shared bathroom. The location is absolutely perfect if you had to get around the popular spots in the city. The hotel itself is in San Telmo and if you love walking, you could to Puerto Madero, Pacific Gallery, Florida street, the Pink House. The... More

We stayed at Viejo Telmo for 4 nights - The location for San Telmo and Tango are good with a subway very close, but overall we found this place disappointing. The location is on the edge of town for most attractions if you like to walk but the actual road is a little sketchy. We found 2 guys constantly frequenting... More

Excellent location in San Telmo, next to El Centro and Julio 9. The room are ancient but beautiful and very confortable. Bathroom was very nice as well. The included breakfast is sufficient and the staff is particularly friendly and helpful. We would recommend this place for a stay in Buenos Aires.

Verry helpfull staff: gives information about history, everything u need to see and do. Ask for the bikes to rent. It helps exploring the great city in a different way. Also at night a safe way of transport. Just never leave them out of sight when u are in a bar. I&T
