“Clean, nice workers, not noisy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011 via mobile

The hotel is a little old. The rooms are clean and comfortable. My room had a big bed. The friobar has always good stuff. It had a security box. The bathrrom was always clean, and there was always hot water. I liked the breakfast (which was included). It had a variety of things.

About the location, let's say that I like it because it was in the center of Buenos Aires, but I didn't like it because I didn't feel safe walking around after 9pm.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2011

There´s nothing about the Regus that will get your pulse racing, either in anger or with joy. It´s oldish and its last refurbishment looks as if it was in the late ´80s (how else can they explain the beige carpeted walls in the old lift?) The room was on the dark side, but it seemed clean enough, while the bed was comfortable. There was little noise from within the hotel, despite its high ceilings and its age, while the blackout blinds and double glazing meant the sleep quality was reasonably good. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was cable TV and an acceptable buffet breakfast. The location is fairly central, only a short walk from some of the sights and a subte (metro) for trips further afield. The street outside had seen better days: the neighbours downstairs included a sex shop and some overpriced restaurants (watch out for the cover charge and always ask for an itemised bill), which I would never eat in again. All in all, for a place to sleep after a long day seeing the sights, it´s perfectly acceptable.

We had an interior room so no noise, but far from lift (which did not have automatic opening doors) and no view. Bathroom/Toilet was clean but VERY small. Linen & towels clean & changed every day. Refrigerator/minibar/safe provided at no extra charge. Bottled water in minibar is cheaper than surrounding shops, breakfast simple but good (cornflakes, bread, croissants, fruit juice, tea/coffee, butter, jam). Friendly & helpful staff.
Location was its best point- 2 blocks to underground (LInes B & D) & Lavalle Station (Line C) just around the corner. Advise travellers to use underground - 1.10 (one point 1 pesos) per trip. Many tourist locations within walking distance, lots of restaurants nearby.

Do not stay there. Crummy broken beds, mouldy walls, grotty carpet, noisy, surly staff......I'll say no more!

We had a good experience at this hotel. We had an interior room so street noise was not a problem, but no view. The roon and bath were both large, albeit a little worn. The location is great and the breakfast was good. We thought the staff was very helpful. We would stay there again.

The reviews led me to believe Regis Orho was better than it actually was. Positive points: the location was great, the breakfast was ok, the price is fair. Negative points: the hotel is old and needs refurbishing badly, specially the bathroom; the curtain only covered half of the window; the TV range of channels was poor. The main problem, however, was the air conditioner.
The guests can´t turn it on, turn it off or control the temperature. I don´t know if the air conditioner was broken, if it was insuficient or if it was set in an unconfortable temperature, but the room was unpleasantly hot. Since opening the windows was not an option due to the noise of the streets, we could only rely on the ceiling fan, that, thankfully, was silent.
Concerning the noise, I suggest a room facing calle Lavalle, not calle Esmeralda.

Situated on a pedestrian-only shopping street, this hotel is central to so many things. Lots of eateries and shopping below the hotel, but also it's walking distance to must-see neighbourhoods like San Telmo, Recoleta, downtown, and the subway station is just a couple blocks away. The hotel is older, but it does a good job of providing the basics. Rooms are large enough, clean, comfortable. However, the bathoom seriously lacked in counterspace. Well, there was no counterspace. Minor problem. The toilet took on a life of its own whenever you flushed it (I think it was wanting to take care of you like a bidet would). The breakfast, like the rooms, are simple but adequate. It's helpful to have some Spanish knowledge, as not all hotel staff spoke English.
