I stayed 5 days there. Easy to go to most places in Buenos Aires walking. A large variety of restaurants and ice cream parlors nearby. The staff is very helpfull and nice, been able to speak Spanish, Portuguese or English. Nice and comfortable room, nice bed, cleaned everyday. The breakfast was good, not spectacular, but with everything you need to begin your day in a good mood. Definetly I recomend! :-)

I was in Buenos Aires in Sept 2012 and the hotel Bel Air was in a great location just off a busy street Santa Fe, thereby keeping the place quiet. It is just off a nice park and walking distance to Florida Street and San Martin Square. Hotel had a great buffet that has moved to the basement for better privacy and away from the entrance to the hotel. The internet was FREE and available. The gym was good and the staff was very helpful, courteous and spoke good English. The room was roomy and very comfortable. They made very good arrangements to see a tango show. I recommend the Puerto Madeira show and it is in a good location overlooking the dikes in the reclaimed land and a lovely view of the yatch's near the Yatch Club. Please change dollars at Florida St exchange places and use pesos for a good deal.
The only issue I had was the taxi had a hard time getting to the right address of the hotel because of the ONE WAY streets. Otherwise, I highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.

I didn't choose the hotel a friend did. Having read some of the other reviews I was expecting something a little less desirable. Much has been said about rude staff. I found the hotel to be very good and the staff delightful. For value for money the hotel is excellent. The location is fantastic with everything within walking distance. I go a room at the back - so any issues with noisy rooms wasn't a problem. I always travel with ear plugs in any event! The room (again considering the cost) was massive. It was about fifteen years old judging by the deco but had stood up well. The linen was excellent - don't normally even consider such things but this stood out. Breakfast was absolutely fine - as good as most hotels. The food was fresh and there was plenty of it.

Stayed at the Bel Air in BA three times in the last 6 weeks. My bill was paid by a third party, which obviously was trying to save money. Had I been free to move, I would have gone to another hotel for my second and third stay.
This is an old building which has been remodeled , located in a nice shopping district. I stayed in different rooms and found the rooms which look to the Arenales street to be very noisy.
The hotel limits service at a maximum: for instance the Bel Air does not have a doorman or bellboys....you have to carry your bags. Breakfast was not a good experience: served in a dark room ( in the basement) and then , for a city known for its 'confiterias' where excellent coffee and medialunas are served, in this case, everything tasted second rate. The topping on the cake was a morning when we did not have hot water to shower. Had to shower with cold water. Good or your health, I guess.
So, not a very pleasant experience, overall.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the street rooms which are noisy

We stayed here for two nights, while a short visit to Buenos Aires visiting family and friends.
The hotel is located in a nice area with a nice park in the corner. It is on a busy street and locals drive like crazy, so BE CAREFUL when walking.
We arrived and there was a very BAD weather (in fact, 11 people died on that evening because of the weather). My husband got off the car and ran under the rain inside the hotel and asked for an umbrella to get me and our little 3 months-old bay out of the car. They did not have an umbrella AND they didn't even bother to come out and help us with luggage... VERY RUDE of their side.

Pros:
Location
Nice and big bed

Cons:
Wifi VERY expensive
Poor breakfast
OLD OLD bathroom
Unfriendly staff
