The hotel is in a perfect location for the hussle and bustle of the San Telmo markets (mostly Sunday) in the park across the road and in the surrounding streets. To note the street out the front is closed for most of Sunday. Service was good & the included breakfast was average. The rooms were a split level configuration with the bedroom in a loft area up a tight internal staircase. With the bathroom and couch downstairs. The room layout wasn’t convenient and I wouldn’t recommend for elderly guests. With that said the location was good and the price was reasonable. I recommend visiting the markets at the corner of Defensa & Estados Unidos to eat. Also La Brigada restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Location is very nice at Plaza Dorrego which is the hart of San Telmho district. Also a small walking distance to Plaza de Majo. Boutique means tiny. Our room was on behind the reception/breakfast area without fresh air. It felt like an oven. Also because the airco was on hot air and couldnot be changed. The breakfast was very poor with only a few sandwiches available and a few cups of jam. The staff was very accomodating in finding a ventilator and ordering taxis In all 2 star at best

Stayed for 5 nights in May on my first trip to BA and this turned out to be a great pick. Was lucky to book a really low rate (albeit non-refundable, but only 10 or so days out) on Orbitz AND apply a 15% off by paying through that site, so it dropped the rate to well under half the high season amount. Do be aware: It probably won't be a large room, and only a few overlook the plaza. If you're like me and get one on the other end, your window might only open to the hall (or a closed alleyway), but you'll likely be better off on noise. Rooms are well-kept and have the ensuite bathroom, the flat TV with a good number of channels and other conveniences. It's closer to New York or Amsterdam small, and not quite Hong Kong small. Breakfast was nice for what it was, though if it were any nicer or with more items some people might try to tank up on it too much to skip lunch. Dipping a banana in the caramel dulce de leche packet is what Elvis might do if he went to BA, but it's very good. From the airport I took the opposite tack from Luis from Madrid and did a go-it-alone approach with the Manuel Tienda Leon bus into town (worked fine) but got an unscrupulous taxi driver who pulled the something's-wrong-with-this-bill trick. They had been having ongoing currency problems and he was claiming the taxis won't accept Eva Peron 100-peso bills, which was ridiculous. But I didn't know. They try to help you look through the cash you have and take some of it while you;re distracted or upset. I was watchful with the dollars but didn't notice until later that some of the 500-peso bills were missing. Ladrones! Don't fall for any of that nonsense. One mistake was taking a stationary taxi outside the MTL office...should have gotten at least a passing one. Take down the number, On the way back to the airport I reversed the process, without incident (passing taxi from hotel, then MTL bus for 260 pesos). And of course there's Uber or whatever the remise outfit is if you're not like me and have more than a "dumb" phone. But I digress. Great location right across from the plaza, and of course the big street feria happens on Sundays. I was looking for old records and did better with the fixed-location places in the nearby Mercado, as well as Eureka Records on Defensa just past where it crosses under the freeway in the direction of Boca. The Sunday feria adds a few dealers with interesting stuff (records, antiques, postcards, etc.), but far more common is the newer tourist-trappy merch like frig magnets, etc. And crafts. I thought the more interesting stalls were around the plaza and toward the Boca end, rather than downtown. One downside to the location is that it takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to a Subte station. If you get good with SUBE cards and the bus system, though, there are a couple of bus routes that go right by.

The hotel was really nice and the room was well clean and tidy. the breakfast was OK. Great prices. I just wish I could pay by card as the assistant didn't allow me to pay with it but I think it was just a case. Very recommended!

I have always wondered what triggers that a hotel or restaurant with good average reviews has some really bad ones as well. You will probably not suffer what I went through but hopefully will help you knowing who rules this place. If you're thinking of booking this hotel this story may help you to decide. This hotel is well located in San Telmo, rooms are ok, staff is friendly and despite the poor noise isolation and a false advertising 50$ promo, this review could have been a really good one. Unfortunately I hired with them my transport to ezeiza (with a clear premium over the rates you can get ordering a taxi over the phone, but I preferred to avoid the hassle, go for a better service and avoid an extra visit to the atm). In a nutshell ...they forgot to order it, and then the chaos started. They made a mistake, that is human and it will happen eventually. I'm quite understanding with that, what I don't find acceptable is that they had no contingency plan or a sense of damage repair. They promised to send another taxi in ten minutes, which obviously did not happen. I asked them to stop and pay a taxi on the street but the overwhelmed receptionist did not have any cash. 35 minutes (yes, 35 minutes!) after the agreed time a private driver arrived to pick me up. A furious driver, as he just expecting to be paid by the hotel in advance, and as I said they had no cash. I really feared that he would kick me out at any corner. With that stressing atmosphere and a huge traffic jam I arrived 8 min before the limit for check in. A distressing experience with happy ending. For a customer oriented manager in the year 2017, the cost of the transport would have been reimbursed without even claiming it. You turn a horrible management into a happy customer...The manager of telmho needed three weeks to answer my emails and more than two months (including some surreal quality audit stuff) to conclude that... "they did well and I did not miss my flight, so there's no point for any compensation". Now San telmho manager has 40$ in her pocket because she thinks my experience is worth nothing; customers are cash rather the recipients of your service. Is this the way you think? Be careful, you may be next.
