We were booked in by our travel company as part of an Antractic cruise so, in common with some other people, we did not choose it ourselves. We were,however, more than happy to come back to it several times during our extended trip around Argentina.The hotel is well run, staff are very friendly and helpful and it is in an excellent position on a part pedestrianised street with lively bars and restaurents literally just outside the entrance. It is also very convenient for walking around the Microcentro, Puerto Medero and the Retiro.
The rooms are good and well furnished but the trendy 'part open' bathroom in the refurbished rooms meant that any activation of the toilet light during the night also lit up the bedroom. We had rooms on the 3rd and 8th floors overlooking the Reconquista and never had any issue with noise even though the street below is very busy during the working week Monday to Friday. Conversely the area is quiet on Saturday nights and very quiet on Sunday nights.
We did not, however, consider the hotel to be 5 star. Comfortably 4 star and trying hard but let down by details such as the breakfast which, although perfectly adequate, was not very exciting, and the pillows which were lumpy polyester.
Notwithstanding the above we were always happy to return. A comfortable, friendly, professional hotel in a convenient position with fun bars and restaurents just outside the entrance - what's not to like?
