“Central location, big buffet breakfast until 12pm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

I stayed here with my mother for a 3 days business trip. Daniel and Sergio were helpful when finding places to visit however not so much for internet troubleshooting. Our flight arrived at 6:30am and we were at the hotel around 8:20am and they let us do an early check-in without charging extra. The elevator needs some fixing, basically you have to swipe 4 or 5 times your card to allow pressing the floor number. The breakfast has a variety of fresh juices, cheese, bread, yogurth, ham, pastries, canned fruits and cereal. The milk and coffee are mildly warm so definately ask for HOT. The room was spacious with twin beds and a little fridge. The bathroom had a tub, WC and a bidet but opening the door was very awkard. They leave a newspaper on the room door and cable has enough options, they also have a computer in the lobby in case you dont bring your laptop. 4 blocks is the obelisco and 4 more was our conference at the four seasons. There are leather shops around with not such great bargains but then again that´s not the hotel problem, just a tip for future travelers. all in all nicely located with a supermarket nearby and the subte 2 blocks away. Take taxis by yourself as requested in the hotel are more expensive. It can be quite a busy street early in the morning and at noon not so much at night. When asked about the check-out they said that if it was at 2pm no problem but later than 7pm there is a half day fee. Safe box available upon request at no charge. Almost forgot they have blackout blinds which makes sleep worthwhile.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

I stayed in this hotel as part of my tour with Llama travel.
This hotel is a 3* and not 4*. The rooms are average, but roomy enough, some people complained of a damp smell in their rooms- but I didn't have this problem.
The air conditioning is pretty useless and the whole hotel could do with a renovation, but it was pleasant enough for our 3 day stay and is in a very good and seemingly safe location, where the main shopping and eating areas can be reached within walking distance.
The staff were always very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was of a good standard. If you are only in Buenos Aires for a short trip, this hotel should be sufficient, just don't expect luxury- the room was standard, with a TV and fridge and good storage space for clothing. The bathroom was a bit dated but still had everything that I needed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the street- my room faced another wall!

My husband and I were in this hotel. And some clients were there before. It is a good 3 stars hotel! Very pleasant staff. Mainly Ernesto. He helped us, as there were o big problem in Buenos Aires due to fllight cancellation by Aerolineas Argentinas. It was hard to find a hotel in the night. It is in a good location in downtown.

If you are looking for a good value hotel, with a nice room, this is a good choice. Although the room was not large, it was clean and served well for three nights. The location of the hotel is also ok, in downtown Buenos Aires, near to various points of interest. I would certainly recommend it for people visiting BA for the first time, when you want to be close to all tourist sites. In a second or third trip, I would recommend a hotel in the Recolleta or Palermo areas. On of the good points of the hotel is the breakfast. Although the restaurant is rather small (the hotel in general is small), it had a good selection of food and attentive service.

Bisonte was OK - most staff were great a minority miserable. Breakfast was OK. Good bedrooms - ours was a tiny bathroom but friends' was bigger. Supermarket just a few steps away so as to buy wine and water and avoid the mini bar. Bed was great.
