My wife and I had booked the Impala but were transferred here on arrival - they are both in the 525 Hotels group. Initially we were not happy as the location looked as if it would be noisier. In fact the location, on one of Buenos Aires busiest roads, was fine, as you must expect noise everywhere in BA. The... More

I stayed here with my fiance for 3 nights when we first arrived in Argentina. It is in a good spot (3 blocks from the Brazilian consulate, for those wanting to get a visa) and close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. It was clean and tidy, hot shower, comfy king sized bed, decent breakfast and all the staff... More

I stayed in this hotel for just one night and it was great for just that. The room features are not the most recent but for the price I paid it was well worth it. The location is excellent, within walking distance of el monumental and buenos aires's main downtown core. Nice cafes and restaurants around the corner. Staff were... More

I stayed here for a week in late January during a Buenos Aires heatwave. The room I was given was quite small with very basic amenities but for the price I was satisfied as other hotels in the area were much more expensive. The staff was great and allowed me to check out extra late as my flight was quite... More

The hotel is dated and needs refurbishment but the room was large and comfortable. The staff at reception looked after every enquiry with great hospitality and effort. I asked for a change of room as I was first allocated a twin room and asked to move to a room with a double bed. The request was met with instant assistance... More

The staff is very kind and helpful and the breakfast is tasty. It is now a little obsolete, but well preserved and clean. Room and bathroom size are OK. Very nice view at almost all rooms. The best thing is the position and the rates. Great cost-benefit hotel in Buenos Aires!

The hotel is well located, the breakfast is fine and the price is quite cheap. However, the room was cozy, smell to smoke like if someone was smoking. I was in a 8th floor over the Carlos Pellegrini avenue, the room has double window, but it still was really noisy. I wold recommend this hotel if you don't have trouble... More

We booked the hotel over the net based on photos & price. Once we arrived the lobby looked good & we expected the same from the rooms. Unfortunately the rooms were bad, very small & looked like there hasn't been an update since the 70's. If you like no frills then this is the right hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. My room had a double bed, colour tv, nice bathroom. Breakfast was great (croissants, fruit, dulce de leche, toast, butter, cheese, ham etc) The staff at the reception is very helpful and friendly. The location is safe and very close to all the main attractions in Buenos Aires. I wasn't too sure... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
