The service was outstanding. The feel is amazing of old Argentina. It looks so classy and gets you into the mood. All the people working there are kind and accommodating. The only complaint is the mattress. Just terrible. But you are so tired from dancing you might not notice.

if you want a rich Argentine experience, Hotel Mansion Dandi Royal is perfect for you. The neighborhood (San Telmo) is historic, authentic and so interesting. The hotel is very old and beautiful. There are many charming details here, but the real reason to stay is the staff. Christian at the front desk is absolutely amazing. He is so friendly and... More

It's the best place in town to stay and learn tango at the same town. This petit hotel used to house a prominent family in Buenos Aires, long before it became a hotel. The premises are incredible! You will feel like you are a guest to well to do family. There is nothing better than to be in a hotel... More

We had a great couple of nights at this hotel. The decor is fantastic and it consists of two houses that have been joined together. Going up to the roof one finds a small swimming pool but more interestingly gets an impression of what lies on the inside of those enormous blocks of streets. The reception staff was extremely friendly... More

We stayed in Hotel Dandi for 4 nights. Architecturally , this is one of the most fascinating places to stay in Buenos Aires. Hotel is a converted mansion with historical décor, colorful art, winding staircases and elevator for those who want to use it. The hotel is attached to the Tango dance studio where you can attend nightly classes or... More

Windowless room. Stained bed linens and towels. Needed to ask for toilet paper. Internet service intermittent at best. Carpet needed vacuuming. Staff was friendly but unreliable--two times cars were promised for pick up at airport but then never showed up. Narrow winding stairs up to all floors--no elevator. Front desk night and early morning staff spoke no English. Breakfast coffee... More

Everything about this hotel was amazing. A group of us had just spent 8 days crossing Patagonia from Chile into Argentina on horseback for charity so to be presented with this hotel was a real treat. So many beautiful original features, murals in every room and so much attention to detail. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much... More

Myself and my husband came to the Dandi on a trip with our Tango group. In total there were 9 of us, but for Larry and myself, this trip served as our Honeymoon as we just married at the end of 2013. The staff bent over backwards to meet our every need...and in total we were a pretty large, needy... More

I have stayed in many hotels but this one was unique. The interior has to be seen to be believed, as if time had stood still. Only one worry, the hairdier was wired into the wall right above the wash basin and the wires were loose. The only way to make it work was for my husband to hold the... More
