We stayed here for 6 nights while discovering the city. You can walk to loads of attractions from here, SUBTE is right outside the door. If you are looking for a no frills budget type hotel this is a good option. Clean beds, good shower and our room was amazingly quiet. Gave us a 2 hour extended check-out, breakfast had...

Everything from the staff to the rooms was shabby. Changed three rooms and still not great. The management needs to spend money on this hotel. The carpets were worn and dirty. There were dirty hairs in the bathroom. There was mould on the walls where the wall paper was peeing off. The bath enamel was coming off and there were...

Secind time we visited Castelar and the hotel needs a brush up on several points. Sockets loose and bathroom should be modernized. But cheap on the internet and worth a visit. Staff professional - and nothing more.

To be straight from the start, this isn't one of the best I visited, not even close. However, taking in consideration the dirtiness of Buenos Aires and Argentina in global, and Buenos Aires high prices, this was one of the best deals to get. The hotel is old and rustic, but it is clean, the service is excellent, staff is...

For its cultural and historical value, this hotel should get five stars. It was built in 1929, and in the 1930s served as the residence of Sponish poet Federico García Lorca. Location-wise, the hotel is centrally located, and close to everything. The Obelisque, National Congress and plaza de mayo are all a walking distance from the hotel. Lima tube station...

We spent our first three nights in Buenos Aires at the Castelar, and it had everything we look for in a city hotel: cleanliness, comfortable beds, friendly and accommodating staff, and location, location, location. It's located half a block from Avenue 9 de Julio in the center of the city within walking distance of several colorful neighborhoods and subway stops....

We didn't stay at this hotel so I cannot comment on that, but I stopped in because it used to be a local hangout for Jorge Luis Borges and Federico Garcia Lorca. The staff was very gracious and let us enter the lobby and dining area. To be able to get a glimpse of a place they used to frequent...

Good location, close to Avenue July 9! Old and small rooms. Reasonable cleanliness. Have a nice breakfast. Regular service. No parking! Good price with advance booking. Near the Obelisk and Lima station (subway). Next to several restaurants, cafes, kiosks and attractions.

The hotel is very well located in downtown. Staff was attentive (in the front desk they changed two $500 pesos bills that no other place accepted to $100 pesos) That said, the hotel needs a refurbishment, for example the carpets on the halls are in bad shape, the bathroom door was hard to close, the view from the windows of...

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
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.
