Great breakfast between 7-10:30am, a various choice buffet including cakes, bread, cereals, egg and bacon, fruit, fruit juices, milkshake, yoghurt.
Not much of a view through the window.
I would advise you NOT to take up the service of the bell boy for carrying your cases on the gold trolley, as the cases will not get to your room for about 1 hour after you check in, so if you need things from your case quite urgent, then you will not be able to get them, unless you carry your own cases.
In the hotel room, there is a telephone, TV, Wardrobe and security box, a desk and chair.
The lights are operated with the swipe card you use to access the room.
The hotel is situated on Florida Street, which has a lot of shops and market stalls and is opposite McDonald's restaurant.
Please be aware of pick pockets, do not display any expensive jewellery when walking the streets, as the street is known for this, they operate in gangs of girls and also men on motorbikes, they might try to distract you, for example, if you are taking a photo, they might push in, so that you are distracted, then target you when you are 'off guard'.
Don't expect sympathy from the Receptionist, if anything goes wrong,they will not help you.
There is a leather coat shop and a shop selling Tango shows on the ground floor and also a shop selling Argentinean stone ornaments and a coffee shop on the 1st floor. There is an escalator, but it will be propably remain unfixed.
If you have a room on the 7th floor, the noise of the lifts will disturb your sleep.
Do not expect clean towels and toiletries every day.
Overall, this was a very nice hotel and in the centre of Buenos Aires, close to shops.
