For folks familiar with Howard Johnson's properties in the USA, this hotel will come as a surprise. It's not a traditional HoJo. Rather, it's a fairly modern 3 1/2 star full service hotel in what is perhaps the most central location in Buenos Aires. The street in front is a pedestrian mall, but a taxi can drop you off 25...

This hotel is located in a very safe area and great for shopping. Spacious, clean rooms with very comfortable beds. Restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast every morning included fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, eggs, several meats and cheeses, delicious pastries, juice and coffee. The reason for 4 stars is their bar was very limited...overall a great place to stay

The location was very convenient to me, the rest was pretty average/basic. My too had windows looking at the inside... Hotel staff was kind and polite though. Breakfast not impressive and repetitive. Overall average but good prices.

Although a handy location I don't recommend this hotel at all. We were disappointed with cleanliness and service. The elevator was out of use for the duration of our stay, it looked as though this had been the case for some time. The pictures show this hotel needs a revamp and isn't particularly clean. The breakfast made both of us...

The hotel has a great location on a walking street close to Galeria Pacifico. The room was very comfortable and spacious. Beds were great too. The breakfast buffet is good, with lots of bread, yoghurt and fresh juice.

This Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel is located in central Buenos Aires at the top end of Florida Street very near to Plaza San Martin, a nice expanse of green leading to the Retiro Railway Station.

The Howard Johnson Plaza Florida is very well located, at the beginning of Florida street. It is not accessible directly by car but is only 50 meters from Paraguay street in the South and Marcelo T. Alvear in the North. Room are spacious and breakfast is quite reasonable. Service is almost inexistent.

It's a 4 star-hotel for the standards of Argentina. The first impression I got when I arrived at the reception and lobby was of a nostalgic sentimental trip to the 80's.Our room was big enough and clean. The personal was polite and the breakfast was good for the Argentinean style - they eat more toasts (the guests can make them...

Our impression of this hotel was overall good. I don't agree with saying that the staff didn't speak any English, as the staff of the frontline desk speaks English very well. No, the maid doesn't speak English, but that's not a problem. They were all very friendly and helpful. The comments about the noise of the air-con unit are true,...

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.

“the room my husband and i occupied was at the back and very quiet though there was not much of a view though we really had no time to look out the window. the two other couplles in our group had front rooms on the same floor (cant really remember but i think 9th) which were also quiet and had better views but like us they didn't have any time to look out their window. in short, ask for the higher floor rooms, either front or back.”
