Stayed at the hotel August 2011 for three days the first night had a room on the street that was too noisy to sleep even with window shut. moved to one of the back rooms was fine. the bathrooms were recently remodeled and clean but first one was small. the walls had some cracks in the plaster but a little paint would be ok. bus 8 goes to the airport and goes in front of the hotel for 2 pesos but takes two hours to get to the airport but you get to see parts of the city that you would not otherwise see. I paid 200 pesos per night for one person including the breakfast. the staff was nice but only spoke Spanish great location close to subway rooms were clean. most of the American women that I know would not stay there but it was safe and the other people wre young spainish families or older single Spainsh women and men. I would stay there again. More
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.
