Spent 5 nights at the Destino Real, picked the hotel because it is new (opened 1 1/2 months ago as of this review) and because I found what was described as a 50% off deal on Expedia, which incidentally turned out to be almost the same price of 250 pesos/night available to anyone walking in. Management maintains low prices in order to become known and attract repeat customers.
Having visited BA many times, I would describe the hotel as a strong 2 1/2 star by international standards and a 3 stars by Argentinian standards. The neighborhood near Plaza Once is definitely not very nice, OK during the day but not a place to take a walk at night.
Security at the hotel is very good, the rooms are new and clean, everything is functional, including the internet which worked flawlessly. The owners and staff were helpful and very nice and it always felt good coming back to the hotel.
Location is convenient to Rivadavia, a major artery, and to public transportation (access to subway and numerous buses at nearby Plaza Miserere). Taxis are readily available at the gas station around the corner.
Nice, clean, safe, unpretentious hotel. Would definitely return.
Best to turn right towards Rivadavia when you come out of the hotel, area to the left after the bridge is rough.
Inquire at the hotel about exchanging USD
I do not believe anyone at the hotel speaks English
