I can't give 0/5 otherwise I would due to my disappointment. It's unbelievable but this is a 4-star hotel. For the price that I paid for this I could've found much better places indeed. I've researched this hotel beforehand and I was expecting a good room as per other pictures. They may have better rooms but the one that I... More

I stayed 7 nights at the hotel a few years ago. I felt safe and welcome. The hotel's location is in the city center. The staff was excellent, friendly and well informed-old school.My friends were at the same time in more expensive hotels, but Dora for all of us was a base during our stay in BA for well-informed and...

I stayed here 3 nights. Location if you want to be in this area cannot be beat. I certainly felt safe and secure. I was here by taxi so I cannot speak about parking, I know there is no parking for the hotel itself. Wifi did work, was slow, but it did work. Room was clean. Breakfast is like most... More

Found myself in the centre of buzzing Buenos Aires in this nice hotel. Location is the main highlight, with great transportation links, walking distance to Retiro and Recoleta. The cemetery there is a must see!! The staff was fantastic, very reasonable breakfast and good value for money. The hotel is clean, comfortable and quiet. In my opinion all you need... More

Please don't let the renovated lobby fool your eyes. Although they presumably have some nice rooms in the upper floors, the 2nd floor where my room is located is simply put...Sad! I got a great deal online, but the bottom line is, the house always wins - you get the lowest level room. Old carpets, paint peeling off the walls,... More

The hotel is well-located and room is quiet. Bathroom doesn't fit with the 4-star hotel is supposed to be. But the biggest problem is with the air-conditioner. The hotel has a centralized system and you can't stop or regulate the air in your own room. Just unbearable! You're freezing in your room!!! I wonder how they got their 4th star...... More

First stayed in this hotel in 2003, at which time it was 3-star, and the price was right. In the subsequent years, little was done to refurbish it while the price kept going up, and the staff that seemed mostly made up of retirees kept getting more starchy. Last stayed in 2013, only to note everything remained relatively the same,... More

I only spent one night here but the staff is helpfull and friendly and the hotel has what 4-star hotels need to have as far as servicelevel and amenities go. The location is central, close to Retiro Station (which is not as scary as Tripadvisor suggests, at least in my opinion) and close to the shoppingstreets and Galerias Pacificos in... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and it was great. It is an old building that is gradually being refurbished. Service was great all throughout, from Reception to the wait staff at breakfast. We needed a private car to take us far and back, and they arranged without a problem. The room we got was kind of small... More

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.
