As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.

The "Gran" isn't so grand but at (about Australian) $33 per night twin share it was excellent value. After our original (booked) hotel wouldn't let us check-in because it was after 8 pm, we headed off to find somewhere to stay. Everything was "fully booked" or maybe they didn't

This is a special place that we have returned to after 10 years. It is still great value, with the front rooms with a balcony on the upper floors being our favorites. The men that run the front desk are wonderful and very helpful. There is a lovely old elevator and stairs t

The brass plate outside suggests "Gran" was deserved once. Now it's just a door, leading to some stairs atop which sits a lady of a certain age. She books you in, then rings another similar lady who meets you out of the lift & this one takes you to your room which is off a corrid

In the past it must have been a very nice hotel, but now it is a little bit past its prime. The problem is that the walls are very thin and you can hear every move in the next room. The location is great tho because it is right in the center and it is a good value.

"Try to get a room that faces the street with a balcony."
"Rooms are priced by whether you would like a front or a back room. We like the balcony so that we can see the world."
"There are larger rooms, if you enquire about them. Unsure if you can get a quiet room - I could hear a family a few doors along - but worth asking."
"Front of building with balcony, try and get a high floor to reduce the street noise."
$23 - $43 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
