Exe Hotel Colon

Reviewed August 7, 2011

Very unhelpful staff, tired rooms (some are refurbished and they are actually ok but we started in an old room though which was really bad. I'd say no more than 2 star quality).
Corridors and common areas dark and dingy.
Find somehwere else to stay in BA- this hotel has absolutely no charm at all.

This is a hotel very well placed but is not very comfortable and new (they need to renew some areas)... I think it is enough for short periods... At least the breakfast is good (but you should wake up early).

convenient location that you can always walk to any of the places that most tourist go
few blocks from florida street (famous for shopping and leather goods)
restaurants and bar are just down the hotel

communication is a bit difficult as most of the staff cant understand english
the receptionist was too strict and not negotiable
no hot water provided that we are asked to get it from the restaurant that already closed at night
no bathroom slipper, dusty room, small sink that water were all over the room when i wash my face...but the bathroom is OK
i stayed in std room that everything is too tiny for the price
i paid USD99 (including taxes) for a night stay...that i guess all goes for its convenient location...

not recommended for travellers looking for comfort and concern on the budget

Great location, you can see the obelisque from the room. However, you can not control the air conditioner of the room. It will be the same for every room. The temperature of the room depends on the temperature outside the hotel. So if you are hot, you can not cool down the room and if you are cold then you can turn if off. NO MORE!

We traveled to Buenos Aires, and we stayed in the hotel for only three days. We didn't have friends information before go there. I can tell you we did a amazing deal. The hotel is in front of the Obelisco, near to Florida, Café Tortoni and the BaAs City Tour. You can walk around the hotel neighborhood safely. The hotel is also like 15 minutes by cab to the Outlets center. The rooms are small, but enough! The bed was so good, that I couldn’t get up easily. The breakfast was also a good surprise, with much abundance, it was great! 5 friends and I recommend it !

This hotel is ok. The location is good because you are near the shopping area, ferry to Uruguay, there is a tango show across the street, a subway nearby to Palermo. The room is small but clean. The service was ok. You have to pay for using the internet in the lobby. The breakfast seemed to be typical compared to other area hotels. We moved to the Hotel Claridge (same company as Colon a little more expensive) for the last two days of our trip and I found the rooms larger and more luxurious. The service at the front desk was better (free internet in business center). The spa and pool were the highlight. The location is as good as Colon.
