Concord Callao Hotel by Temporary Apartments
Reviewed March 19, 2010

You can use this place as a base for exploring throughout Buenos Aires. It is not downtown so you don't have to deal with the street vendors vying for your attention like on Calle Florida. There are many banks nearby, (my ATM card worked at none), all kinds of shopping within an easy walk, a supermercado for suppllies a couple blocks and many restaurants for all tastes. Much nicer to have a home base versus a hotel room. Staff catered to every need and arranged remisse (private car service, skip the cabs) to any destination I requested, provided advice, located services for me and booked tours. Staff are only available from 8 to 8 and 8 to 4 on weekends so plan a couple days ahead if you want to use their services. Everyone in the office was able to converse in English. Stay in a room facing the pool if traffic bothers you. About 13 blocks to downtown which was an easy walk. They also have onsite laundry at 6 pesos to wash and dry (US$2). The maid even did my dishes when I didn't take the time. A pleasant 2 week stay in a very lively city.

I stayed at the Concord Callao with a friend for six nights in February 2010. Because the prices were so good, we booked two apartments instead of one. It was still less than the cost of one hotel room in most other major cities. We liked our stay there overall. The apartments are good-sized and clean and modern (I can't at all understand the review complaining that they are dirty and don't have hot water). The building is in a very central location and on a major street, so you don't have to worry about walking down a dark street if you are coming back late at night. The staff was friendly and helpful.

There are some downsides. The apartments that face the street are a bit noisy, as other reviewers have said. My friend never could get wifi service in his apartment or mine. If you want to use the hot tub, you'll have to fill it up yourself, which takes about 20 minutes. (To pass the time, you could go out and watch the pool overflow, something we saw one night after a hard rain). But the worst part is that although there is an all-night security guard, the hotel reception closes for the night at 4PM or 8PM (depending on the day). If that doesn't sound like a problem, consider this: one night, my friend accidentally locked himself out of his apartment. (The doors lock automatically and he left his key inside.) The security guard didn't have a master key and didn't seem to know where to find one. Eventually, the guard managed to get hold of a key to a different apartment that hadn't been rented for that night, so my friend still had a place to sleep, but without any of his clothes, toothbrush, etc.

The hotel was very noisy, dirty and has not hot water in the morning!!!
One of the worse experiences ever suffered with a hotel.
The room smell cigarette and was actually dirty, like the bathroom.
When I did the check out they charged me pesos 45 (about USD 11) for a phonecall that cost me pesos 8 (USD 2.1) in a phoneboot! A rip-off !!!!

Stay away of this one!!!! It is miserable! and I paid for a decent hotel.
I only stayed 1 night and ran out to another hotel where things were good, no surprises like in the ugly Concord Hotel. No to be visit again.

Concord Callao is one of several modern buildings in which Temporary Apartments rent fully serviced apartments. It is located on Calle Callao, two blocks from Avenida Santa Fe in Bario Norte, some 10/15 minutes walk from the Recoleta Cemetery and about 20/25 minutes walk down Santa Fe to the Microcentre. The apartments consist of a large room with a divider separting the living area (with kitchenette, table and chair and sofa) from the bedroom area, complete with TV with numerous channels. There are also built in wardrobes, a safe and a full bathroom with shower over the bath. The rooms are serviced daily with fresh towels, toiletries and any pots you have used are washed up and put away. The complex has a swimming pool and garden/lounging area. Temporary Apartments (who also operate as Friendly Apartments) are very efficient and adaptable. The apartments are very modern, very clean and the kitchenette comes well equipped to make breakfast and cook other meals - though why would you with the range of restaurants that Barrio Norte and the wider BsAs area have to offer? One tip: check out the websites before booking re prices as they seem to fluctuate from day to day, and be aware that effectivo (payment in cash - US dollars) may result in a discount. Try and get an apartment at the back or higher up as Calle Callao is a busy street for vehicular traffic. WiFi is an extra charge, but like elsewhere in BsAs can be patchy depending on the supplier.

We stayed here two periods of 5 and 4 nights. Rooms very big with kitchennete. We found staff at reception and in office friendly and helpful. The second stay the a/c wasn't working properly and though we reported it it wasn't fixed. Original stay our room was in the front and there was a lot of traffic noise but did get used to it.(Room at the back overlooking the pool on the second stay was much quieter.)Those things apart our stays were very enjoyable. Very nice outdoor pool -and very welcome after long day sightseeing-and the area itself is very nice, with plenty of cafes ,restaurants, shops and is near the Recoleta Cemetary. All in all very good value in a good area;would definitely stay there again.

Excellent ! from the beginning to the end. I arrived early in the morning and they gave me my room in 15 minutes. The staff was really friendly and helpful (receptionists, security staff and the chambermaids). The apartments are big, comfortable and fully equipped so I felt like home. The sounds of the neighborhood are not a hotel problem, you are visiting a big city such as Buenos Aires, and I had not problems sleeping at all.
Congratulations and thank you for your hospitality!!! Hope to visit you soon again.

What I loved of this place is this idea of apartments, I mean you are really independent as a guest, cause it's like home! It's like you are almost a resident, you enjoy Buenos Aires like you should! The neiborhood is really comfortable and you can doi a lot of things, everything is closed to the building! The staff is really helpful and nice. I totally recomend this!
