I've stayed many times in Buenos Aires and found that staying in this kind of apartment is much more personal. The reception staff were absolutely lovely and helpful, nothing was too much to ask for. Breakfast was good but I feel there could have been a hot option of food but it was just continental. I will be returning to... More

This place is modern and very spacious. Large bed, kitchenette, cable TV and a good size bathroom. We enjoyed our stay there so much that we stayed there again after a 4 day getaway. The facilities are great but there is no cleaning service (you can pay a fee to have the place cleaned) as they are short stay apartments... More

Room was very large, with 2 beds, sofa and a kitchenette,and also very very clean. Reception staff were so very nice and helpful. We were given an information sheet on arrival which proved very useful. Hotel is also centrally located and in quite a good area. We simply loved our stay there.

Very clean and comfortable hotel one block off 9 de Julio Avenue (the widest avenue in the world). The surrounding street did not look promising, but the hotel was a gem with its own restaurant. The doors are locked most of the time for security. Ths staff was very helpful with getting us a tango show, getting taxis and making... More

I was very impressed, and pleasantly surprised with how new, chic, and modern Riva was. The historical view from the rooftop pool is amazing. My favourite element was the staff....always helpful and super friendly.

It was everything I love, for a great price. Close to the main buses and Subte. Super helpful front desk staff (really, we loved you!). Nice little kitchenette, which helps you save on not eating out for every meal. Comfy bed. Hot, hot showers. And, every traveling girl's dream (ok, mine at least): blow dryer. Some of the complaints by... More

I checked in at the hotel for 2 nights, the room is very spacious, clean and comfortable. It was very nice to have the added benefits of an apartment style room over a basic hotel room. The fridge, microwave and kettle were a nice bonus. Could definitely use a grill/oven/hob in addition to make a longer stay more comfortable but... More

This hotel is quite cheap but you get what you pay for. My main complaint was the noise, we requested a room in the centre of the hotel but didn't get one. We were over the main road and it was noisy all night. It sounded like buses, taxis, beeping, rubbish collections and motorbikes all at the same time and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is good but the apartments themselves are very basic. The staff at reception were very helpful. Breakfast consists of 3 small croissants tea/coffee and a small orange juice. We paid roughly £40 per room per night it was worth the stay for the location itself. There is a convenience store just over... More
