“Olde World Building, Spacious but basic Apartments”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2011

We spent three nights on two seperate occasions in this lovely old Parisian style building. It is very nicely placed to be able to walk just about anywhere in Buenos Aires and close to Florida Street shopping. There is a doorman on duty 24 hrs a day controlling access and there are two lifts. Staff were helpful, but some language difficulities (English) made communications haphazard. The rooms are large, airconditioned and well furnished, with large comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, although very light on crockery and glassware, much of which was chipped. The floors, being old, not only creaked but actually sagged under foot in some parts of the rooms (kitchens in particular). The building is not well sound proofed, and most rooms open on to airwells which carry noise both from the streets and other rooms. The included breakfast was a very basic buffet of cereal, sliced meats, cheese, toast and a few pastries. Again it was hard to find any crockery which was not chipped. There are at least two inexpensive laundries close by and many good restaurants. Taking all this in to account, we did enjoyed our stay here, even if it was basic accomodation.

Huge gorgeous apartment! The best we've ever stayed! Staff went out of their way for us! Perfect location, close to all the shops and right in the city centre. See a tango show, eat meat (unfortunately any other food in Buenos Aires is terrible) & go the La Boca.

In a nutshell, I really loved these appartments.
The one we stayed in was clean, nicely laid out, spacious and nicely decorated.

The staff were fantastic, and couldn't do enough for us - despite some language difficulties.
The location is great - within walking distance of most of BA's visitor attractions.

The wifi was a bit dodgy at times, and it irriatated me that I had to relog in each time - but it's a minor complaint. The only other negative was the noisy air conditioning - which I must admit did wake me up from time to time.

The breakfast was continental and on the basic side - but perfectly sufficient to get you started for the day.

Overall, I liked the room, the location and the staff and would stay here again.

Pros: Good location within walking distance of many attractions, spacious room with fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable bed, complimentary WiFi (although there were a few glitches), complimentary passes to a nearby fully equipped gym.
Cons: Noisy, loud A/C, poor breakfast, scorching hot water in the shower (careful!);

The building of Forcadell appartments is a gem - an art deco buliding nicely restored, also the apartments are nice, huge and well equipped.

On the downside, we had an appartment in the lower floors, with little natural sunlight, we even had to turn on the light in the living room during the day.

If the the building would be in Recoleta or Palermo it would be much better - but in the Microcentro it was loud, hectic and full of smog...Also the price is a bit hefty for Buenos Aires

Rooms are large but very tired and need to be spruced up. Location is ok for what we needed but over 35 minutes from the downtown area. Extremely noisy hotel (I had to use earplugs one evening as did other colleagues) which makes it difficult to get a good quality sleep. I had a room at the back and could still hear the road traffic, barking dogs and even more annoying, the walls seem to be made of paper as the noise transmission sometimes had you feeling that the person in the next room was actually right beside you. (talking, and other personal noises) Hallways are like an institution (hospital, etc) and dimly lit. Staff is young and have an ambivilant attitude towards service - you get it but have to ask for it. Breakfast is ok..

Pictures of hotel, rooms are accurate but do not reflect the poor / worn condition of the furniture. Towels are grey and threadbare, taps don't work properly.

I definately will not stay here again even though it offers significant advantages regarding work location.

BTW there are some very good restaurants within walking distance but they don't open until 08:00PM.

Forcadell Apartments is located in the downtown area of Buenos Aires, Argentina. There are many shops and theaters conveniently located within walking distance. The rooms are actually apartments; extremely spacious, with a full kitchen. I also had a large terrace. Very tastefully appointed - you can entertain guests quite easily! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I didn't want to leave! Definitely 5 out of 5!
