If you look for an experience, rather than for a place to crash, do give it a go. The castle is surrounded by dense forrest on the edge of San Lorenzo.

The place is a little bit run down, but they are making it up to you by an extrodinary service. We loved to stroll around the woods and enjoyed the best coffee of our trip in the Castillo.

So, this place is not about fancy bathrooms or comfortable modern king size beds, but about a time travel to a rustic, but atmospheric past. We enjoyed it!

Room Tip: Check whether you can get the suite for the same price of a double bed room.

What a jaw-dropping experience when first glimpsed! Beautiful! Elegant! Stylish! And upon entering the hotel, what a lovely reception from John, the American owner for 28 years. The few rooms are magnificent, if needing a little up-dating. Very high ceilings, balconies, antique furniture (perhaps not of the highest quality, but who cares), airy, and on a grand scale. A lovely peaceful sleep, followed by a truly 5 star Continental breakfast: freshly squeezed orange juice, true, correct croissant (a rarity in Argentina, even in Buenos Aires), intense home-made marmalade from proper, home-grown Seville oranges, and a beautifully presented tropical fruit salad. Dinner in the magnificent restaurant is also a delight, with excellent cuisine cooked by a good chef, obviously properly trained (a rarity outside of Buenos Aires). Regretfully, John has just signed a 3 year contract to rent out the hotel operation to a local company due to financial difficulties beyond his control largely caused by global forces. Let us pray the high standards and style that John created in his remarkable establishment continue under the new management. I have no doubt they will. Go and enjoy!

I was there in 2009 and it was fantastic, spotless, great food, great service so I returned just now, 10/11. I still had great service from the owner and a warm reception, but something dreadful happened to this place. I hope John, that you get it back on track and be proud of it again.

Good luck and keep your head above water, maybe not in your pool

We had an enormous room, but the furniture was so dirty, you wouldn't lay your trousers on them, full with fungus and dirt. The furniture in the hall was so dirty you wouldn't dare to sit on it. Don't look in the kitchen please. We had dinner and breakfast and a foodpoisning. The swimming pool was with greenwater.

A castle built by an Italian immigrant turned by its current U.S. owner into a hotel. It's nice and quaint if a bit odd as one would expect from an eccentric original owner. Nice old-fashioned rooms with high ceilings. Can be a bit warm so ask for a fan. Full-length window doors open but no bug screens. On a dead end road to nowhere so it isn't too noisy despite being by the roadside.
