“Low Budget Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

I booked this hotel for the price and the four star rating. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The modern design with concrete floor was cold and uninviting. The rooms are tiny, not just small with concrete floor and nothing on the concrete walls. Spa shower was great, but that was it. No shower door and no where to put your toiletries. Bed was comfortable and we requested the back of hotel so it was quiet. Though the hotel is in walking distance to many things, it is in a undesirable location. We were told by a friend who picked us up that it is an unsafe area and not to walk at night. For Americans in particular, you would not enjoy this hotel. They charge you $20 a day to use what they call a spa. It is a pool, whirlpool and sauna. Not anything special. I've never been charged to use a pool before. Breakfast was not included. That is another $10 per person a day. If it was not for the wonderful staff, I would rate this lower.

We originally planned to stay in this hotel for a three night trip to Buenos Aires, but decided to extend for a week. I couldn't fault the service in the hotel. The pool was clean and tidy with great showers and sun loungers. The rooms were cleaned daily and each time i re-entered the room it was perfectly clean and organised. The location was good, with a wine shop opposite and the surrounding area had some amazing restaurants and bars.. It was a short walk to San Telmo, and a five minute walk to the nearest Tube stops..

Lionel who works on the reception during most days, was incredibly friendly and helpful and made our stay a pleasant one, and i would certainly stay here again... We met some great friends at this hotel and have some very happy memories.

The rooms may be slightly in need of a little maintenance, but the hotel is currently being updated, so they are taking action towards this...

First hotel I've ever stayed in where there is no floor covering. Everywhere is concrete. It's a very modern design which won't suit everyone. And as with all modern buildings, when they are new they look fabulous (as I'm sure this did when it belonged to Axel chain) but some years later it looks a bit tired. Pool area was ok and breakfast was limited. No view to speak of from the room and if you are a light sleeper insist on a room at the back as our room overlooked the noisy road below (bin collections at 1am and commuter traffic from 7am). On the plus side, it was very clean the bed was comfortable and the staff were courteous.

This hotel has changed owner end of 2013. From a adult only hotel it changed to low budget travelers hotel, open to kids without warning us (we booked few months before the change). This hotel need major remodelation, furnitures around the pool is broken, pool is not clean, a layer of dust all around! The rooms are noisy. No service is provided. We had to wait around 40 min for them to do our check out. Rooms need to be refurbished, mold around the shower, broken doors, rusted closet. Old Towels which are shreding! And even the amenities is not refilled everyday, so when your shampoo is over you need to run after the maid!

Had reservation for January 10-12 at this with new name (formerly Axel Hotel) with reservation Guaranteed with the credit card. When I arrived at the hotel, I was told very rudely that there were no rooms left. But they had made arrangement for me to stay at the Monserrat Apart Hotel. Which was out of my and the staff provided equally bad service.

The hotel is conveniently located, however the building nearby are rundown, full of graffiti, the boardwalk is in terrible condition, full of holes and the area is very dirty. The hotel itself is not too bad, the room were clean, the personnel was nice, except for the morning front desk young man who had a snobbish attitude. Also, we, as many other customers, got annoyed that the magnetic keys to open the door and go on the elevator was not functioning properly.

Rude receptionist. Poor restaurant / bar staff. Very run down and dirty. Broken glass was found near jacuzzis for two days running in the spa. No iPod docks in rooms as advertised. Place looks in need of a make over. Avoid. Better and cheaper options in Buenos Aires.
