I found this room and bathroom spacious, clean and well maintained. I stayed in a Sea View room and I believe a little higher rate was worth it I speak little Spanish and the front desk personal spoke a little English...but we managed to communicate all that was necessary. Drawing images always helps. Complimentary continental breakfast was filled with a... More

Taking into consideration the average standards Argentinian hotels hold, this hotel is pretty good. The room - not the bathroom or the alleys - is spacious and up-to-date. The bed and the pillows guarantee a good night sleep. The sheets are ok, new, thick and cleaned enough not to have that sensation of sleeping with the last guest who stayed... More

The public contact staff of youngsters working here is great. Energetic and positive. The location is good...only a few blocks from the tourist center. The hotel, however, is a plain jane without any exceptional attributes. Furnishings are spartan. The rooms feel empty and cold. Views of the ocean are limited (but nice). The rooms have the feel of a college... More

I've stayed at this hotel many times, but hadn't been for two years. Its charm has always been its staff and its location, but this year it felt very unloved and threadbare, the linens were old and stained, the bathrooms past it, and the prices too high for what shouldn't be ranked above two stars. The 'breakfast' is where the... More

Good hotel, in need of some decoration work , but the location is great. Complimentary Breakfast was excellent and service people were kind and helpful. Rooms are OK, bed and pillows need a refreshment, but the overall service and quality is more than acceptable for a 3-Star in Mar Del Plata.

The hotel is located a few feet from a popular beach. The hotel is clean and staff are friendly and helpful. I did not like my room. The bed was very uncomfortable and the pillows were of the budget variety (tiny and flat). The air condition unit was situated too low in the room and was hiding behind the heavy... More

After experiencing several hotels in Argentina, this excellent hotel came as a pleasant surprise. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and boasted an excellent view. The staff could speak English and went out of their way to be helpful. The neighborhood felt safe and welcoming. I would highly recommend it. Excellent value. The location was good and taxi rides there are... More
