good location, room are decent and all with bathroom, which is unusual for an hostel, but most of the kids (although not all) at reception are rude and always try to charge you extra to book a taxi or other services

I found this hotel after 2 days coming back to Buenos Aires, walking along the famous Avenida de Mayo. I liked the location of the hotel so I decided to ask for prices, which seemed reasonable. The first day of my stay I left my clothes for laundry and I supposedly had them back the next day but I never again see back almost most of my clothes. At first I was very polite and patient but after 3 days, to see that they did nothing to give me a solution, I spent almost all day asking at the reception, which the staff was incompetent and did not care about my concerns! Only when they saw me very annoyed, they decided to show me the laundry room, and other places where they left the laundry clothes .....! after that I only got, " I'm so sorry but we can't do anything about that!

The location is ok, but the hotel is old, rooms are clean, there were one toilet for 3 rooms(4 people in my rooms)!!!! that was the worst part !!!

the staff doesn't know how to give you much information on places to visit, I only got good information about expensive package tours!

The Ritz is a really great place if you are coming to visit Buenos Aires.
Great location- close to metro, buses & public transport at all. Very easy to walk from here to the main atractions.

The staff was always very friendly and helpful with us. Always have something nice to recomend. Good breakfast, free Wi Fi that reaches even the rooms!
The room was clean and with a view over lovely av de Mayo.

Highly recomended!

Bar far the best. The staff is friendly- they even remember names. The location and the building can't be beat. I stayed in both a private room and a 6 person dorm and while I value my privacy I would absolutely suggest the dorm for cleanliness and comfort. The views are breathtaking from some of the out-facing rooms and you can't beat the price.

Awesome location right on the corner of Av 9 de Julio and Av de Mayo. We had a nice balcony overlooking the main street. It was noisy, but nothing a pair of earplugs couldn't help. We were able to sleep with the shutters open and had a beautiful breeze. The hotel is very old but is clean and the rooms are spacious with lots of character. Big high ceilings and doorways. AC and fan are both in the room, as well as a large ensuite bathroom.

Staff were extremely helpful and I would recommend staying here if you are just arriving. The staff speak great english and can help organize other parts of your trip - buses, tours, hotels, etc.

Shared kitchen facilities are available and a grocery store is located right across the street.

Room Tip: If you are concerned about street noise, choose maybe a higher room or one that faces away from the...
