We stayed here between 4th and 8th October this year. It is possibly the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. It is a B & B with aspirations to be a boutique hotel, but actually without much of a breakfast either. The bedrooms we were allocated were in the middle of the hotel and therefore airless with no windows to the outside making the rooms fusty smelling. The walls were paper thin and you could hear everything in the next door room. The photos of this hotel bear no resemblance to the room we were given at this hotel. There never seemed to be anybody around for any service including at breakfast when you had to knock on the kitchen door to get any tea bags or hot water and were then allocated only one tea bag each! Breakfast consisted of a cold buffet of bread and bits of cheese and ham. We were offered eggs only once during our stay. The only good thing I can say about breakfast was that there was freshly squeezed orange juice.
The hotel is located in a distinctly dodgy area with graffiti covered buildings surrounding it. It is close to a lively area with some very good bars and restaurants but you have a ten minute walk through the dodgy area to get to this. You are not allocated a key during your stay and must therefore wait to be let in when you return making it feel even more like a B & B.
I don't know what rate we paid for this as we booked it as part of a package tour of Argentina but I suspect it was far more than we should have paid. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
