My wife and I stayed here as pert of an Antarctic expedition out of Ushuaia over New Year 2012 on the way out and on Jan 18 and 19th on the return. The hotel has reasonable rooms both in the new section and the original but is let down by it's location with no outdoor space except street-side. It only has an small indoor pool/spa in the basement. The breakfast was poor..certainly not up-to international standards with other meals just about acceptable. However Buenos Aires is the worst city we have visited for crime. On our first day there we were sprayed with fake bird dirt as a distraction theft opportunity. This happened to 2 other couples in our group of 40 with one couple having an attempted necklace snatch.Also at our hotel a couple were wrestled to the ground and their camera and handbag stolen(not in our group). On our return 4 other couples were sprayed and one couple had a necklace stolen. On our New Years evening tango show and meal many visitors kept their jewellery out of site only putting it on when inside the venue. Perhaps it was just over this period when many locals leave the city for vacation that the homeless and thieves were more noticeable and more active. It certainly won't be on our list of places to return to.
