If you're visiting Buenos Aires as a tourist and for a short time (a week or less) it's a great place to stay. It's located between two peatonal streets with lots of shops and bars. Just 3 blocks away from Puerto Madero, 2 blocks from Plaza de Mayo and 5 blocks from the famous Barrio San Telmo. You won't get bored to walk around.
The hotel & rooms are not big at all, but the price pays for the location mostly. It is, thou, very neat, tidy and clean.
Only a couple of things I would "warn" other travellers about are:
-The minibar: there was a functional one in the room but it was allways empty (I stood for 3 days). I used it to keep the beverages I bought outside.
-The breakfast (which is not in the hotel itself, but in a Cafe nextdoor -Los Inmortales-)is not a buffet. The waiter serves a glass of orange juice, a cup of cofee/tea/chocolate, two medialunas and two toasts with marmalade for each person. So if your apettite is great in the first time of the morning (like my husband's) this won't be enough.
The room's walls: were very thin and you could hear doors oppening/closing and the stepping of other people from the other rooms. So also not recommended if you have a light dream.
Anyways, the three items above bothered mostly my husband. For me, it was great place to stay, since I have the concept that an hotel is a place where you leave your lugagge, take your showers and sleep; and that's it. But I thought it would be fair to "warn" people that are a little more demanding when it comes to the place to stay ('cause my husband is...)
As for me, and othe not-so-demanding people in the world: thumbs up!
