Horrible location... the street is really dangerous. Was a hotel and now a hostel, rooms really small and not very clean. Have stairs and no elevator. No signs in the front, so hard to find it at night! and the rooms are quite creepy.

We had a great stay in Don Telmo. The people are the best, so friendly and helpful! The rooms are very clean and have a nice atmosphere. They have a kitchen which you can use and a big roof terrace. The location is perfect to explore the city, close to the metro and on walking distance to the famous Tango... More

This hotel has published a promotional rate for the month of october in many sites. We have booked thru Booking.com. Booking does not charge you until you check in the hotel (most of options they offer). This hotel had this option; I would pay locally. Three days before, just three days before I've got a message of the hotel that... More

A low cost option for backpackers and young people... for us it was a little uncomfortable: a very small/simple bathroom, a small/simple bed, very long stairs without elevator. Good heating, good room size for 4 people, good breakfast.

We were put into this hotel after the hotel we were booked in overbooked. Even the cab driver was uncomfortable leaving us here. This part of San Telmo is super sketchy. When we pulled up there was a police car outside and the overall feeling was scary. The bathroom was horrible, it smelled awful and was full of bugs. The... More

We had a booking with venere.com in this hotel. The hotel confirmed this booking. But, when we came to the hotel, we were told that the hotel is full, they don't have our booking and we can go away in the middle of the night. No other option was provided. We had to stay in the other hotel that was... More

Its location is very good, next to 9 de Julio and San Telmo. Alejo helped us a lot, with milongas, restaurantes and all kind of tips... More

Situated exactly corner with the main avenue. Staff at reception are so professional, they speak english and help us a lot. Rooms aren´t very spacious but still have a wardrobe & ensuite shower plus tv too. Breakfast lady is a bit slow. Some days we found empty trays and took her a lot to get out more food! Lots of...

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
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.
