All WAS really fine in this central hotel. We were using it as a stop over on our way down to Ushuaia to visit Antarctica! (which was like going to heaven!) so we were happy it was so central. The room was large and more than adequate. There were tea making facilities and a mini bar. Breakfast and dining there... More

We spent two days here and the people couldn't have been nicer. The street the hotel is on is a bit of a mess with tagging and garbage, but that seemed to be the norm in that area. It was reasonably priced and in walking distance to the best shopping in Buenas Aires. Most places we were going were going... More

We went as a party of 8. Two rooms between us and it worked out just great. They were clean, quiet and comfortable, nothing spectacular. The AC worked, which was important as we were there in 90+ heat. The safe in the room worked for storage of all our important documents that we didn't want to carry. The staff was... More

We arrived late on a Saturday evening with a copy of our confirmation we had booked online. Only to be told they were full. They did nothing to help us on a very busy night in buenos aires. The front desk manager decided to not understand English when it was convenient, he wouldn't even help us call the online company... More

We stayed for a total of 6 nights. The hotel is in a good location downtown on a pedestrianised street. It is quite old and reminiscent of smaller hotels in European cities. Some rooms are very small. Some of the staff are friendly. The biggest negative is the breakfast - on our tour of S America, we stayed in 10... More

The unique good think in there are front desk people, who are always able to help everybody. Rooms and bath are terrible, must be refurbished. Location in city centre is not a good reason; I felt so unsecure around, with dark and empty streets at night. For everywhere you will need a taxi, so it's better to choose some hotel... More

Stayed at Hotel Lafayette for a few days before touring around Northern Argentina. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Location made it easy to visit many sights.rooms were large, clean and well lite. Internet was free. Buffet breakfast was nice with fresh grapefruit each day. Many nice restaurants in the area for both lunch and dinner.

The hotel is close to Avenida Leandro Alem and the central business district. This area is not itself wonderfully lively or interesting, but the hotel is solid and convenient for those on business trips. The breakfast selection was a highlight: fresh orange juice available from a jug and a wide selection of cold buffet foods.
