“Nice charming hotel - but so noisy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

La Fresque is a beautiful hotel, with a great location right in the city centre of Buenos Aires. The subway is at the door, and all the main attractions are within walking distance. My room was spacious, airy, had a comfortable bed, and the decoration makes you travel in time to the old days of the city. Breakfast was great also!
However, there were a few problems. There was no safe in the room, and no minibar. The bathroom was a bit overfurnished, the bath tub was too small even for one, and there was no hairdryer. The biggest problem though was the noise: all night long you can hear the lift going up and down (it's a very old one) and you also hear everything your neighbours do and say. It's really difficult to sleep, and that's the only reason why I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
To sum up, La Fresque would be the perfect place to stay in Buenos Aires if it wasn't so noisy!!!

The hotle is located in a very touristy location, which is not the "nice" part of town though. We had a two-level jacuzzi suite. One can see the Obelisque from one balcony and the Parlament from another. Very modern boutique design.
Cleanliness can be improved. Do not use jacuzzi - we got skin infection after using it! Also, they did not have a crib for the baby and the room was definitely unsafe for the infant. We did request the crib during the booking process.

Room Tip: Two level rooms are not safe for the babies!

:-) Perfectly position for exploring the city. Staff were friendly and helpful.Breakfast was included and nice.

:-( The Suite is nice but very noise. Missing the minibar or at least one fridge. A/c remote controller is not available in the Room. The only one available is belong the Front Desk. No credit card accepted .

Room Tip: The suite is really nice but noisy during the day.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was perfectly situated on Avenida de Mayo for exploring the city. Staff were friendly and helpful and it was no problem to ask for extra pillows or get advice about where to go. Room was very well priced for what you get, very well sized. Breakfast was included and very nice it was too, served in lovely surroundings. Our room was quiet, but we were away from the street. Can also recommend the Palacio Espanol for dinner, it's very close by. The only watchout is that it is cash only but this is made clear on the booking confirmation and they remind you again at check in. Also, it seems that ATMs in Argentina would only allow us to take out 1000pesos max so you might need to make more than one trip depending how long you stay.

Elegant, old hotel excellently preserved. Sparse furnishings, but nice linens. My favorite mattress, ever. This hotel makes the beautiful city a totally different experience with it's charm and antiques. Clean, nice breakfast, helpful staff. Paying cash keeps the cost down. I loved the balcony and street view.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to have different configurations, so be sure to look at your room first. One had...
