Great location, staff that treats you like one of their own, close to everything, and all at a price you cannot beat!

We reserved one night in the hotel and ended up staying for a week. The location was perfect especially if you like to walk and you like history. We were less than a five minute walk to the Casa Rosa (Parliament House) and all the events that go on in the plaza in front. The street is lined with trees and historic buildings and despite being right in the heart of the old city it was quiet.There were several restaurants on our street so we could venture out walking at night for a meal.
The hotel staff were much more than O.K. they treated us like family. We left our luggage there to go for an overnight to Uruguay and were welcomed back to a better room. The rooms were exceptional clean- wonderful bathrooms, great TV programs and very comfortable beds and air conditioning which we needed. BA was hot in January.
I would stay there again and i would recommend it to single female travelers. Great location, wonderful, helpful staff and luxury rooms-what more?

Room Tip: We got a more spacious room on the thidr floor. There is an elevator. There is no pool. I cant cha...

Excellent location as just a stones throw from cafe Tortoni, a must to visit for lovers of decor and scrumptious cakes. The rooms of this hotel are small and the bathroom even smaller. The courtyard in this hotel is divine. I was impressed.

This hotel is not a 4 star but is adequate for a short stay. The hotel is
older,the rooms are a good size but the bathrooms are small(not unlike
many in Argentina) More of a European flavor. The breakfasts are much
like most Argentinian breakfasts ,toast,croissants,and sweetbreads with
juice and coffee.
The location of this hotel is what makes it very attractive.Close to downtown
and the Florida Mall,and many restaurants.This is where many activities are
in Buenos Aires.
This housekeeping service was great and the rooms clean and the front desk
people were friendly and very helpful.

We stayd their when we landed in B.A for three days and come back two nights to flyback to the US. Do not stop your mind on the old style rooms, they are clean and well hold. You can enjoy an included breakfast in the nice patio. Just avoid rooms close to Av de Mayo that are noisy, Management will kindly change your location if they can. Location, Prices and Service are really good for the Buenos Aires Downtown.

This is a very nice hotel, clean, quiet, helpful staff. Coffee at breakfast the best we had in our month in Argentina. This was the fifth place we stayed in Argentina, including two resorts, and it held its own with them.

The location of the hotel can't be beat. SubTe right out the front door gives you access to nearly the whole city. Buses that come by frequently (and for only $1.25 pesos) can get you where SubTe doesn't yet go. SanTelmo is walking distance. Always something going on down the street in Plaza de Mayo, and always sales on Florida Street 3 blocks away. On Sundays, start on Defensa/Peru Street and walk the 1-1/2 miles through the street artisan sales to free tango at Plaza Dorrego in the late afternoon.

Only one caution. We booked in for a 3-night special at $340 US*. It included a city tour (which was very good), a bottle of wine (delicious), and a tango show (which would have been very good, I think, if it had been at Senor Tango as expected, but due to overflow there, we were sent to 'Sabor a Tango', too touristy, too expensive for drinks, and lousy view of the stage. So if you take the special, insist on Senor Tango). *If I understood the regular room rate, the special does save you some if you plan to do these extras anyway.

As for tango shows, two doors down is the famous Cafe Tortoni (a cool enough place anyway) which has an excellent tango show for $100 pesos (~$25 US) and the Hotel Hispano staff can direct you to a bus to go to Caminito to see good tango up close while enjoying reasonably priced drinks and food.

If you don't like Gran Hotel Hispano, you might be just a bit too picky.

This hotel is a piece of history, nothing has changed since the 50's. My Husband and I found it charming. The location is excellent, staff helpfull and prices very reasonable. However it's noisy, don't go there if you looking for calm.
