Simple accommodation with everything you need - comfortable beds, always very clean and fresh, wi fi, air con, lots of advice from helpful, friendly English speaking staff. Breakfast available for a small charge. The rooms at the back...

We stayed for two nights and Senor Alberto went far beyond the norm to help us with every need from keeping our suitcases while we toured our last day to assisting us when with the airline when we could not check in online for our return. His English is very good and you will find not all hotels have someone...

The hotel is clean, quiet and not far from the metro station. During the time we stayed in Buenos Aires, we spent a lot of time applying for Bolivian Visa on the internet. The staff was so willing to help us that they even let us use the computer on the front desk. Before the day we would leave the...

We stayed here for one night on route to the airport, the staff (owners) helped us arrange a taxi for the next morning and were very friendly. The rooms are average but perfect for what we wanted, good value for money.

Alberto and his team made me feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet, and although the hotel is not in the downtown area, it is close to the Subte system. Highly recommended

This really a 4.5 star as they have very friendly & helpful staff & we had a very clean & comfortable room. Also it's a good price for BA & in a decent location. Breakfast of toast, jam & tea/coffee provided however a bit basic. All in all it did what we needed it to do without knocking our socks...

This hotel is located in Caballito, which a 25 minute bus ride from town and 10 minute tube ride. It is near the intersection of three main avenues, so it is very easy to find. There are lots of restaurants and things to do without the tourist prices, and even a park. It is also a walk away from Once,...

I initially hesitated about this place having stayed at 3 different hotels in the center of Buenos Aires, but I am glad I stayed here. The owner and the staff are very helpful and pleasant. The location is near the metro or bus stops that can take you to the center and any other major areas of Buenos Aires in...
