“A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

I have stayed in many hotels in the Microcentro (Downtown) area; this is the best in value, service decor, etc, I was escorted to my room by Xavier, very professional, willing to serve with a "can-do attitude", not only when I arrive but throughout my stay. Hotel is well located, walking distance to many of the things you want/need.

Starting with a fast check-in by attentive front desk staff; the rooms are modern, functional, have flat screens TV's with all the connections for every gadget, bedding is very comfortable, work area is adequate, shower with good pressure. I stayed in room 905, very quiet.

Breakfast buffet is ample and of good quality.

Will definitely stay again.

Loved the layout and decor at the Novotel. Hotel had all modern conveniences (wifi, flatscreens, business centre, apple computers in foyer, xbox for kids, pool etc etc) and we felt comfortable and safe here. One of the most modern hotels I have stayed in and would definitely stay again.
Staff were helpful and friendly.

This hotel is one of the best I have tried considering price, the rooms are moderns one of the few rooms I have had found USB chargers, the food was great and is well located 3 blocks from the obelisk, in front of all theaters in BAS, you can walk outside really late WO any problem, one day they have a wedding so it was a little bit noisy but nothing i could not handle, breakfast is great and every single person in the hotel did their job as they should, anyway I was on a business trip so that worked pretty well for me.

We stayed in this centrally located hotel for 4 nights. It's situated in the heart of the city and there's a supermarket 3 blocks down the street where you can get bottled water, toiletries, fruits, etc.

Being a French owned company, the daily buffet breakfast included a variety of croissants, danish pastries. Service staff in the restaurant were efficient and friendly as were the staff manning the reception counter. There's quite a large selection of cold cuts, eggs, fresh local fruits and yoghurt and of course Argentina's famous Dulce de Leche (soft smooth caramel) for you to spread on bread or pastries.

Overlooking the dining room is the hotel's mini pool and a small gym located next to it.

The rooms were clean and modern. The bathroom was a bit too dark for my liking and this was due to insufficient lighting.

Overall a good centrally located hotel about 45 minutes to 1 hour from Ministro Pistarini International Airport and 30-35 minutes to Jorge Newbery airport.

We have stayed at this hotel twice and both times we had an excellent stay. Our check-in was efficient and all the information about the hotel was explained to us then. We were shown to our room and a staff member showed us how everything in the room worked. The staff spoke excellent english and were at hand to answer any questions. The hotel is in a central location and there is a subway a few metres away. The hotel's restaurant has an excellent menu and the food and service is faultless. The buffet breakfast was included in our tariff and a good variety available. I would certainly stay at this hotel again .

I have just returned from staying at the Novotel BA for one night in March 2013. We arrived after 3 pm to be told the only room available was a disabled room. (We may be naive but considering a tour company had made the booking nine months previously we found the lack of a room puzzling). However it was only for one night so we went along with the disabled room, being assured that it was same as a normal room but with the addition of a few hand rails. The first room we were taken to had a bed that sloped at a considerable angle down at the head end. The bellhop who was helping with the bags agreed it was quite unsuitable and after being assured by maintenance that the beg legs could not be changed, moved us downstairs to another disabled room. The bed here was sloping down at the head end also but not on so great an angle, and as we were anxious to get started exploring BA in daylight hours, we accepted this one. Other changes to these disabled rooms appointments that make them not as comfortable as normal rooms for your information should you be similarly fobbed off (possibly if you have only a one night booking); difficult to get used to taps in bathroom, a very unusual shower arrangement, no hanging space as only storage shelves are provided, a desk area that is really only suited to wheelchair uses. All in all it was not a comfortable room considering the prices the Novotel charges.
We also found the front desk most unhelpful with regard to booking tours/ events, the hotel had no brochures and reception staff were not knowledgeable and /or helpful.
An early breakfast was available but with limited selections and the bellhop fellow in the foyer refused to assist us in any way to get our cases into the airport car .

I would recommend instead you save your money and either stay next door at the Ibis or to save even more go round to the Ibis at Congresso. In both these the rooms are better than the disabled rooms at Novotel. Not sure if the tour company that booked Novotel on our behalf is aware of what may be a regular scam for one-nighters but will let them know our experiences.

Room Tip: Do Not Except the fob off to a disabled room
