We weren't sure about choosing a hotel so close to the centre of things, but it turned out to be a real blessing. Using the hotel as our base, we walked the sights and places of central Buenos Aires for a week - in fact, for several days we didn't have a choice because all the surrounding streets were closed off for a massive demonstration. Which was fun in itself: finding ourselves on the wrong side of the mile-long column of marchers, with no way to get beyond the barricades to our hotel, we simply joined in with the parade until we found a security guy who took pity on us and let us through the metal wall. The hotel is seriously urban, street noise (even from our room several floors above the traffic) was minimal, and service was discreet and reliable. Comfortable beds, reasonably sized rooms, but (probably because of the hotel's proud adherence to modernist design) less than the expected amount of in-room storage space for clothes. Good breakfast, nice roof deck, close to everything. Yes, you need to be careful on the streets, as other reviewers have pointed out, but that's not the hotel's fault: you need to be careful anywhere in Buenos Aires - we were mugged in San Telmo, as well as getting some great tango lessons there. On all occasions, it was a relief to come home to this efficient and welcoming hotel.
