There were five of us (American students) studying in Buenos Aires. We were studying at Univeridad Catolica Pontifica in the Puerto Madero area and we were easily able to walk from this location. All the rooms were large and beautiful and very clean and we used the common area to use the internet etc. The outdoor area was beautiful as... More

Don’t be disappointed with the look of the outside and its immediate environs. Inside the hotel has a classical feel of a bygone era. Rooms and furnishings are comfortable and in style with the general ambience of the building. Its very close to the city heart (walking distance). The breakfasts are great and served by pleasant staff. The receptionist /... More

Our reservation got canceled by the modern hotel we booked in San Telmo (nightmare - avoid Prestigia.com) and they booked us in to this hotel instead. Although the location is actually quite far from the hotel we booked and San Telmo neighborhood, it was lovely in it's own way. The building is unmarked and does not look like a hotel... More

Booked the least expensive room in the hotel, however this was still US$100 per night and I had expected better for the price. The hotel markets itself as an old building with fresh/modern decor. However, the room had not been cleaned adequately, there were large cracks in the wall, musty smell and moths. The bathroom needed rennovating. We spoke to... More

We stayed here after coming back from a few days at an estancia before moving on to Mendoza. We wanted a hotel where we could crash for two nights without too much stress. This was fine, but did not blow me away by any means. I wasn't a huge fan of the neighborhood, and you had to walk quite a... More

Drea05. We are very sad to hear that you had an average experience in our hotel. It is a real shame that during your stay you did not go to Aramburu resto, which is located only 20 meters away from our hotel. By the way, it is the best restaurant according to Trip Advisor. We had other options near by... More

A beautiful boutique hotel in San Telmo this hotel was an oasis in the enormous city. The welcome was warm, the room beautiful, the garden peaceful and quiet,the breakfast superb. This hotel is excellent value for money. A highlight of our visit to Buenos Aries was hiring bikes for a day in San Telmo and safely cycling the bike paths... More

The room was clean and quiet. The AC worked well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were good. The original artwork throughout was a nice touch. The area isn't the best, but my wife and I walked back every night and we never faced any problems. We arrived on a Sunday, just in time for the San Telmo... More

It was a very lovely hotel with decent interior and breakfast. Full stop. However, every night, we struggled with quite a lot of mosquito. We asked them for an aerosol but all they gave us was mosquito killing scented paper (?) and apparently it did not work... Location is ok - it is not center center but the tube station... More

The hotel is at the edge of the San Telmo area and a long walk to Puerto Madero and Plaza de Maya. Other areas require a taxi or the subway. That is the main reason I gave it an average rating. I prefer hotels that are more walking friendly. As a woman on her own, I also would feel very... More

A great hotel with great hospitality. The rooms are spacious and clean. We felt very well in 1890 Hotel. Two doors aside is the wonderful restaurant Aramburgo. Don`t miss to dine there!
