“Great value, great location, spacious hotel with good amenities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

After searching around all the hostels with their expensive dorm beds, we were very happy to stumble across Aragon. It's a period style building with spacious rooms,, in room wifi, a big kitchen (free coffee in the morning), tv lounge and big bathrooms. It cost 40k for a double room (shared bathroom) which for a couple sharing is cheaper than taking dorm beds. We bargained an even better price for staying 3 nights.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

I found this hotel when all the hostels around were full and it was much better option. Rooms are bigger and nicer in old stile with dark old furniture almost in art deco stile. Batrooms on the corridor are big and bright. Hotel is clean and has a lot of charm. It costs almoust the same as hostels. Staff is ok.

There is also a variety of cultural events and activities available in the Candelaria area and its surrounding area.Hotel Aragón walls have witnessed many distinguished guests such as Isabel Martínez de Perón (President of Argentina, 1974-76, third wife of Juan Domingo Perón).
