“old but well kept hotel at a convenient location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

in general, this is an old budget type hotel. facility is well kept but not updated.

the good:
- location is a block away from the oblisk on the july 9th avenue, the very center of the city.
- many eateries near the hotel from mcd's and b'king's to local restaurants, pizzarias, bars, etc.
- metro (subte) station is nearby if you plan to use it
- hotel staff are friendly
- walking distance to main tourist sites from 1km to 5km, taxi cab is also cheap, 5km will run you 50 pesos
- we booked three stays at non-refundable rates, quite a bit less than the normal rate. if you need flexibility you might want to reconsider.

the bad:
- surrounding areas are where thieves gather. however, if you don't have your expensive wares shown on the outside you'll be all right. and this isn't the hotel's fault.
- hotel charges more for airport transfer than if you book your own, i.e. with eze taxi. to eze it's 250p vs 180p. guess hotel has to take a cut.
- the view rooms facing the july 9th avenue are very noisy 24/7. but it does have views of the oblisk. if you are a light sleeper, ask for rooms not facing the street.

Without doubt the Hotel Bristol is superbly situated in Buenos Aries, with all the main attractions within easy walking distance. Unfortunately, on the inside the decor and facilities were somewhat dated and tatty. The dining room breakfast was excellent, but when we had an early morning departure and requested breakfast in our room it did not arrive. The reception desk then provided a cup of tea and a bit of dry cake, which didn't exactly set us off well for a day's travelling!

Staff were very helpful. We were allowed to check in at 9 a.m. as flights arrive early from the US Staff was helpful in arranging a topnotch tango show. Also came to the room promptly when I could not figure out the safe. Room was quite decent with good internet and kept very clean and surprisingly quiet for being on a very busy street. Breakfast is quite satisfactory.

The Bristol is an old-fashioned hotel with friendly, helpful staff, comfortable well-appointed rooms and a generous buffet breakfast. The lifts are worthy of a heritage listing and are fun to use. The postion near the obelisk is within walking distance of many attractions.

Room Tip: Book a room off the main street as it is noisy. A rather ugly outlook into a light-well is the trad...

Stayed here during our tour of South America. Location is great, can walk to the docks (ferries to Uruguay), and many of the sights in BA.
Staff were very caring and helpful, our room however was disappointing. It had a lovely view of the Obilisk, but was very small, with a small, albeit comfortable, double bed, and very little space around it.
The bathroom was also very small, made even worse because there was a bidet fitted.
Breakfast was plentiful, but a lot of the food was very sweet, not to our taste.
Dinner too was good, with a really good wine at a sensible price.
Wifi worked well, and was free.
Whilst in BA we had a walking tour of the city with the entertaining Jonathan Evans (Highly recommended) and went to the Tango Show at El Querandi - very good

We have stayed there several times and like the staff and rooms. However, you really need to speak a few words of Spanish because their English is very limited. The staff is very helpful if they can understand you. The rooms are comfortable but not up to the standards of current 4 or 5 star hotels. But we have no problem with that. We like the atmosphere there

On the main drag a short walk from everything. Smaller hotel, very friendly and perfect for those an a budget. Rooms European style but very clean and renovated. Staff helpful and very professional. Breakfast is local style and you will love it. If you want a Sheraton don't stay here but if you want a local experience with the best location in town this is your place. I have been coming back for 30 years.
