“Excellent central modern hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is a new suite style hotel. We stayed for six nights in a king bed suite. The room was clean and large with a small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, kettle etc), a flat screen TV (many channels in English, but no news channels) air con and a balcony (the hotel is non smoking, but you can smoke on the balcony). The king size bed was extremely comfortable - my wife wanted to bring it home with us! Breakfast buffet is included. Wifi is available in all rooms - works on and off - plus there is a business centre on the ground floor with three desktop computers available 24hrs free of charge. All the front desk staff spoke excellent English and were all very courteous and helpful. The hotel is in walking distance of everywhere in El Centro and has lots of good restaurants close by. Excellent value for money. We would definitely stay here again.

This very new suite hotel was just the ticket after a month driving across the continent. We had a KS bed suite, our friends had one with 2 x QS beds. All fittings and fixture are new and in good condition. Shower and bathroom are modern and a relief after lots of rubbish plumbing throughout Sth America. Bed was comfortable, TV is enormous, with decent English cable channels (but no news), free wifi that runs well, small balcony to sit on if you want some fresh air.

There is a kitchenette with a small fridge, hot plate, microwave and a kettle however whilst there are plates, glasses, cups cutlery etc, there are no cooking implements such as a frying pan. Carrefour supermarket less than a block away. Breakfast was included in our deal and the buffet had plenty as far as fruit, pastries, toaster, cereal, eggs, tea, coffee etc It's re-stocked constantly and the dining room is kept clean.

This hotel is in the micro centre, less than 2 blocks either way from two different subway (subte) lines 'A' and 'B'. You can walk to Congress (free tours - bring your passport), the Obelisk, Teatro Colon (Opera House) etc. The street is not too busy as it's one way and one of the lesser main streets but try to ask for a room at the back anyway.

I would return.

Room Tip: If you organise a transfer to the airport, make sure they understand if you need a mini van (not tax...

The Icaro is a nice hotel with large, clean rooms in the San Nicholas neighborhood - a perfect place to stay if you are not on a corporate expense account. One is walking distance (long walk) to the historical, beautiful Recoletta and Retiro neighborhoods. There are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants near the hotel. Our room was a large double, clean and modern. There is a washer/dryer in the hotel, but skip the "health club."

We arrived earlier than the advertised check in time to the hotel to be told that our room was not ready, but as that was the case we would be given a complimentary upgrade to the next level of suite - we obviously said yes!

We were shown to our room by the security guy who had also taken our bags and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was spotless and huge! We had two double beds, a kitchenette with microwave and stove top (though no pots and pans!?) and cutlery etc.

There was a tv, air con and a balcony in the room. The bathroom was modern with a hair dryer and was an excellent size.

Wifi connection was somewhat patchy, but downstairs in the lobby is a business centre complete with Internet ready computers (the connection speed is quite impressive).

We did some washing using the hotel self service laundry facility for 40 argentinian pesos which included a wash (a huge load took 25 'mins no kidding) and a dryer (the same load took 30 mins to dry). The washing powder was included in the price.

The staff are very professional and will be friendly and offer advice but do not befriend you in the way you may get in a smaller more personal hotel.

There is a small gym with a treadmill, cross trainer and weights on the 9th floor.

Our only regret is we didn't stay longer at this hotel whilst in Buenos Aires and would recommend it to all those that want to be in walking distance of the tourist sites such as Recoletta. This is not a cheap option but still decent value for money.

First of all, this place is very family friendly offering reasonably priced, quiet nonsmoking rooms with two large beds, a fully equipped kitchenette and dining table area with small outdoor terrace overlooking a quiet side street off the busy, bustling Avenia Corrientes which is their theater row much like Broadway area in NY. The hotel is two blocks away from Avenida Corrientes which is very centrally located to all the main attractions including the Obelisk but is very safe to walk even late at night and with small kids in tow no less. Of course, one must exercise more caution as in all big cities with regards to pickpockets when you reach Avenida Corrientes especially in the evenings as it is packed with people and street vendors. The hotel itself is very modern and clean. Rooms were very clean as you will see in my photos and although could be quieter since could sometimes could hear neighbors coming and going, was not as bad as some other places we'd stayed in the past. No street noise at all since side-street is not as busy as the large avenidas and windows were thick. Bathroom was very clean. Minibar/ ref could be colder but was adequate for our needs (well stocked items but did not use). All needed utensils provided (plates/ cutlery/pans etc) which came in handy since one night with the kids we ended up buying food and eating in the room. Cable TV flat panel very nice but only two English channels. Beds were soft and comfy and linens were very clean each day. Breakfast buffet served was very good with wide selection of fruits, cereals, juices, ham, sausage, eggs, breads, coffee, tea. Staff at the front desk were very helpful and attentive and spoke English well for those of us struggling with Spanish. Also used their laundry room facility which took their own coins but was very cheap. Fitness center small but sufficient to stay fit when traveling. Would not hesitate to stay again here and recommend to anyone coming to visit this beautiful city of Buenos Aires.

Room Tip: higher floors and to the back away from elevators

Unlike most hotels in Buenos Aires, this is a modern one. The building is brand new and beautiful. The room is huge, very clean, well decorated and equipped. However, the little refrigerator doesn't have a built in freezer, so you can't buy frozen food wich would be very convenient when you have a kitchen in the room. It has an excellent breakfast buffet. The crew is very polite and helpful, but at the night there is only a small team working. We needed some cleaning/room service in the night (changing sheets and cleaning the floor) and there was not any maid available, but we were helped by the guys from the front desk that performed the cleaning by himself. Good location.

I stayed here for 3 nights. Clean and neat. Excellent staff, from receptionists to housekeeping. Totally recommend breakfast, try not to miss it! Rooms can't get better! Huge and comfy. Had the best sleep ever, comfortable beds, TV, shower, etc. You can have a nice daylight coming through the windows if you want, which is priceless. First time in Buenos Aires, and felt like I was there for a long time, location really helped! Had a really nice experience, for sure the place where I'll stay next time I need it.
