I hate to give Hotel Marbella a negative review, but getting head lice is not a fun proposition. Instead of sleeping, I spent most evenings feeling the sting and itchiness of bug bites and scouring the internet for answers. I switched rooms to no avail. I am back in NYC now treating my scalp with Nix to kill off all... More

the room is very tiny, the bath room very small too , but more recent and very clean. A Problem in the bath room meant I heard the running water all night, no person to look after it after 10 pm. Beside the noice of a metal door of the elevator at the last floor closing by the early coming... More

It advertises itself as a 2 star facility: I think this is an accurate rating. It is quite inexpensive and extremely clean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. All staff we had contact with spoke good to excellent English. Plumbing is much like Argentine homes I've visited. Located on Avenue de Mayo so there is traffic (foot and vehicle)... More

Price/quality relation is OK, you get as less as you pay, do not expect more. Location is the best for those working in downtown near the Congress Palace. Individual rooms are small. The air conditioning is inexistant: just noise of a fan with no fresh air coming out. Breakfast is OK although you have to pay for the yougurt which... More

Ugh, even considering that this hotel is very cheap (especially for being fairly centrally located in Buenos Aires) it was not worth it! The rooms are very old and dirty - we didn't even take our shoes off in the room since the carpet was so dirty we didn't want to walk on it. But the killer was that there... More

So far the worst hotel I have stayed at. No hot water for the shower, the walls were paper thin, so that the neighbors TV could as well have stood directly next to my bed. The room was small, rundown and ugly, and faced into a noisy courtyard. Breakfast was OK (coffee and croissants with Dulce de Leche). Stay away... More

Staff were nice, one woman spoke English. The room was fine, except the shower flooded the bathroom floor and it was noisy because it faced a busy street. There was free WiFi but it dropped in and out. The breakfast was included, and consisted of pastries or toast. It is a hotel for business people and is a good cheap... More

Hotel Marbella is perfect for someone looking for very basic, centrally located hotel accommodation in Buenos Aires. I stayed here in April after booking via the hotel's website. I had a single room and requested a late checkout, as my departing flight was not leaving until 9 pm. The late checkout option is very important to me and it's wonderful... More

Hotel is basic. One bad pillow, small single bed, very stuffy and can't change the temperature. But I could overlook that because it is such a value. What I don't like is staff who act like I'm wasting their time when I try to arrange transport to the airport. I know my Spanish isn't great, but I was really trying... More

My grandma stays here evertime she visits Argentina - excellent value for money, good location 15 mins walk from most places, close to Avenida de Mayo which is an experience within itself. Stayed here for 3 weeks, was lovely apart from we moved rooms once as I think there might have been mites in the bed as I got itchy... More
