We stayed there during winter months and the rooms where so cold! We had to turn the shower on, on the hottest to warm up the room before bedtime. The good thing is that it had fast wifi, other than that... not a good experience. Perfect location for a decent price.

The hotel had a good review and when we booked we were told we would pay 10% less if we paid cash. The night for a basic double room cost 288 pesos. The rooms are pretty basic as is the bathroom. There was no window in the room, but there is an option of a more expensive room. There is... More

This is a great bargain. Well located a block from Tortinos (oldest cafe in BA) in the Microcentral. Clean and well maintained rooms (I saw about 5 of them). Friendly and good service though English is minimal. A Starbucks is across the street and there are many traditional restaurants within a few blocks. Good lounge with wifi. The only bad... More

We had a very bad experience with Hotel Alcazar due to its horrendous staff with lousy attitude, unpolite nature and very simple nasty rooms. There are better hotels nearby at this pricerange so go with something else...the staff were unfriendly, angry at the guests and openly shouting at them/us(for trying to open a broken door!!?!) They treated us like garbage... More

Ideally located just south of the Avenida 9 de Julio thus right downtown, it's a great old building with a lot of charm. Price is unbeatable. Comfortable beds, clean room, great awe-inspiring balconies. Bathroom was odd, no shower stall, bad drainage.

I love this hotel; it's so beautiful. They were remodeling it when I went, but it was a great experience. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves a low budget wonder. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it had a great view of the street below. It’s walking distance to any little shop including Calle Florida, shopping... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
