The hotel is sufficient but nothing special. Good for one or two nights. Near to the center for visiting the city, and well connected to airports. Poor services, staff and breakfast. Rooms clean and comfortable but without any views. There were some torubles with the internet connection even if you have to pay for it.

Gran Hotel Argentino have an ideal location in the city centre, on the Avenida 9 de Julio, close to Obelisco. And this as well as its reasonable price were the main reason of our choice of this property. Hotel lobby and the room where we stayed weren`t large. However we didn`t have any discomfort. Our room was clean and I felt myself quite comfortable there.Great buffet breakfast has been served in the morning. Seems there were a lack of elevators for such number of people staying at the hotel. Once when I decided to use a staircase to desend instead of elevator it made an impression of a very long travel down deep well.
Reception staff was polite and friendly. They helped us to find a taxi when we were leaving to the airport.
We were deeply satisfied by our stay and would recommend this hotel as a good, reasonably priced midrange accommodation in central Buenos Aires.

a mid range hotel in one of the best locations in the city. Staff great.

Room Tip: ask for a room to the rear as the hotel faces onto the main road

The location is good but next time we will choose a nicer and less pricy hotel in san telmo or Palermo and use the very easy metro! The hotel is functional but there is a constant smell especially in the bathrooms and the towels. The breakfast is quite poor with the water served tasting as tap water and only place to toast two pieces of breath at a time making it almost impossible to have toast. Only good things is that it is central and near metro but...this is just not enough especially if you are staying for more than a couple of nights.

The Gran Hotel Argentino is on Pelligrini, an access adjoining Avenida 9 de Julio, the widest city street on earth. Just a couple of blocks from the Obelisco, this hotel is in the very heart of one of the most exciting cities in the world. Though it is an older establishment, we found the Gran Hotel Argentino to be at once quaint and elegant, and spotlessly clean. Though our room was not large, the bed was comfortable and the bath very nice. (Some rooms offer excellent views of Avenida 9 de Julio; others offer no view at all.)

The staff was warm and very accommodating and helpful, and breakfast, included with the room (as always in Argentina), was very pleasant and typically Argentine.

One huge asset of this hotel is its location, within easy walking distance of many of B.A.'s most popular sites, and just a few blocks from Tortoni, the city's oldest and most famous cafe and tango theatre. Tortoni is a must if you're visiting this part of Buenos Aires. La Boca, the neighbourhood where the tango was born, is a short taxi ride from the hotel, and one can walk easily from the hotel to the Plaza de Mayo, the Teatro Colón, and the Casa Rosada. This is an area of Buenos Aires that boasts some fabulous colonial architecture and lovely, shaded streets. There is great shopping nearby on Calle Florida and parillas galore.

For the price, the Gran Hotel Argentino is a terrific little hotel in one of the most appealing parts of this great city.

Room Tip: The rooms with the best views face the buisest street on the planet--noisy all night!
