“Good value and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

It was our second time at Buenos Aires (Feb 2012, sorry little late to post) and both opportunities we stayed on this hotel, Ibis Congresso. Very well located to do a good sight-seeing walk, as well as one of the Bs As Free walking City Tours starts at Plaza del Congreso, almost in front of the hotel. At the early morning for sure you will see some dog walkers and their nice dogs walking around and playing at the plaza. The breakfast buffet (usualy not included) is good and has a good variety to get the energy to start the day, but we also recomend some very near coffee shops were you can have a combination of coffee/tea, fresh orange juice and very good bread (toasts and medialunas, the argentinean croissant), for example going out of the hotel, take right as going to the Av de Mayo subway, and just couple stores after the hotel you will see a very small coffee shop that is also a bakery (panaderia), where everything we tried tasted so good! Of course, unfortunately, as in many other countries, we have seen several homeless people in the downtown area, what is sad and not beautiful to see, but they seem harmless (at least we didn't see or listen anything about). If you like riding a bike we also recomend a tour with the "la bicicleta naranja" (the orange bike), you can rent and have a really nice time (as the yellow ones are only for citizens)! And last tip, if you like icecream as me, don't miss the very good argentinean ice cream, not only at the famous ones, but for example at Winpy just in front of the hotel, across the Plaza del Congresso.

this was my first visit to argentina. I travel to enjoy the local flavor, spend little time in my hotel room but love a good location and a clean room. Ibis Congresso was perfect. First of all it was in a location that let me walk to major areas, adjacent to the congreso, and a pleasant walk to the centre near the obliesk , and the pink palace, if you enjoy a good walk recoleta and the cemetary plus the park area is a pleasant day trip. the staff at ths hotel is outstanding , always ready to help with information , always a warm and friendly welcome , when you come into the hotel or restaurant...i loved the fact that the staff realized that i wanted to improve my spanish and helped me ....gracias ...if you travel like i do ,, to experience a city , but do not need luxury, but a clean comfortable room in a good location ..at a good price..this is it

Location: in heart of the town, just next to Plaza del Congreso, one of stunning spots of Buenos Aires. Staffs: very helpful, and absolutely important, English speaking staff was available. Room: Ibis’s standard. Very clean. Internet was free of charge. Luggage storage service was available and free of charge. With the great rate I’ve paid for, 5 points.

This is a nice simple hotel, the staff was excellent, they gave us all the information that we need, and the breakfast was very good.
It is central and close to everything, it is not expensive but also not fancy, I loved it

Inexpensive and perfect! We weren't planning on spending a lot of time at the hotel so this worked out perfect. Our 10-night stay was less that $1,000 USD and the hotel is located across from the beautiful Plaza de Congreso. There are plenty of restaurants closeby and you are within walking distance to the Casa Rosada, Plaza de Mayo, etc. The restaurant is great and has such great service, much better than the front desk staff, which I found very unhelpful and unfriendly. Christian in the restaurant was spectacular and very friendly!
