“Not really that Splendid”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I stayed here as it was the starting point of a group trip I was booked on. I'm not a particularly fussy person about where I stay, but this was poor. Holes in the wall in the room, no lights in the lamps. No safe (use ones behind reception, but they run out of them). No AC (although when I spoke to others it turned out there is, but you have to ask reception to switch it on). I'd expect more for the name and the price. The hostel 2 blocks down (BA Stop) was cheaper and nicer for a twin room. I stayed at the hostel prior to the trip starting at the Splendid and was pleased I did.

We stayed there only for two nights and I have never written any review before....but for this place I will make an exception- stay away from this hotel and people that manage this place.Hotel is a ruin and management is extremely rude. For the price that we paid...we could stayed in a much nicer place with far better rating.Effectively we were ripped off. We booked it through booking.com and the rate we had on the reservation( forgot to add that they did not have our reservation all together...then we were offered double room for 3 people- 3 people were actually standing in front of the check in desk...) had nothing to do with what we were told that we need to pay. as they try to speak English when it is convenient to them we had no argument and also we were a bot afraid of even trying to have a discussion with them. Honestly- stay away from this place.

I know this place has had poor reviews, but for £50 a night, it's not the worst I've stayed in.

Clean, decent sized rooms and good wifi.

Bathrooms smell a little though...

Not a bad option rather than hostel and location is good.

I'm not sure I'd like to send more than a few days though, so a good option if you're only in BA for a short while.

Great location near the main street and the Florida pedestrian mall. Friendly staff, they accept cash or credit cards.

generally, good value for money. location is fantastic! elevator is a bit small
In some rooms mattresses are soooo soft, that i had to remove upper mattress and slept on one mattress only, which was great. still, better than to be stone hard.
breakfast was average. i would recommend the place.

Room Tip: great economy value for money

Hotel Splendid has a great location in the centre of Buenos Aires. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good.

The rooms were old but clean, the only problem was the noice of generator during and night.

For us was this a good option!

Was a bit concerned when i saw some of the other reviews, but overall it wasn't too bad at all.
Great location, reasonable value for money, pretty good breaklfast and wifi.
If looking for some accomodation in the centre of town i would consider it again.
Only thing that was a real problem was the noise from the building work happening out on the street.
