It does have a good location. The area feels safe, is central to a lot of good areas and places to eat and drink near by, easy to catch the buses or just walk to from here. However, the room was not exactly much to write home about. It had no natural light, was so hot (and this was in... More

Hotel staff is great! extremely friendly and helpful. This place is all about location, it is within walking distance to bus stops, to the subway and to many places to eat and shop. If these are your main interests when visiting Buenos Aires, you will not be disappointed. The place keeps its own charm by looking antique, this is not... More

please let me preface this summary by saying that I am a 20 year old college student from the US, so take that into consideration when reading my review. I needed a place to stay and I wanted something cheap in a good location. This hotel exceeded my expectations. The location was excellent, only about 20 feet from Av. Santa... More

The air on rooms is noisy and you have to ask for it, they never will tell you how to enable it. Staff is friendly. Breakfast's room is tiny and you have to ask for what you want while the choice is always the same

Be careful in this hotel because the rooms vary greatly. While some are ok some are tiny and very old. I think the newer ones have card to get in while the other ones are accesible with a regular old key. Breakfast is in a tiny room and you need to ask for what you want and the choice is... More

For those of you who ask where should I book my hotel, what area?

Prince hotel give exactly what you want, for the... More

Maybe I was unlucky - I got a tiny room, with a window onto an inside shaft, only 2m away from my neighbours' window... so no fresh air, no light and no privacy. The price to room-quality relationship is not great. But the staff is very friendly and the location is excellent... overall you may not find anything much cheaper... More

We spent just the one night here in Hotel Prince, Recoleta, before going to Iguazu Falls. We are now back in BA, in Palermo Soho, and regret not being back in Recoleta, which is a clean, pleasant district. Hotel Prince offers small but clean and comfortable rooms, In a quiet street (for Buenos Aires). Breakfast was quite acceptable, and the... More

After reading the reviews, I decided to give it a try. I stayed at a double room #505 in the 5th floor. The rooms are very clean and 505 is very private with street view but high enough to avoid the street noise. Note that the elevator takes you to the 4th floor only but the benefit of the privacy...

This was my third time to Buenos Aires, but first time going as a tourist since I used to live in the Barrio Norte/Recoleta neighborhoods several years ago. So this time I spent a lot of time trying to find a decent, affordable hotel (270 pesos double room = ~$71) in a great location (near where I used to live)... More
